Race 1- The Love Benchmark 64 Handicap 1885m
Our Fun was unlucky last start over the Gosford 1600. She was badly crowded late after finishing a close third, her rider protested successfully against the second placegetter. The mare is bred to stay so this trip is ideal.

I’m Going is improving and she demolished a Quirindi Maiden field last start.

Race 3- Skildare Maiden Handicap 1600m.
Manseneta is a three-year-old from the Godolphin stable with a winnable chance in this race. His last run was a career best when he flashed home from midfield to go down by a half a length at Kembla. He will appreciate the longer trip.
Cosmic Haze was an eye catching fourth first up at Scone and cannot be underestimated.
Superhombre was a beaten odds-on favourite at Queanbeyan on debut and he can improve.
5- Comic Haze
