Race 1

1.Waisake 1st $4.50 qu $25.50  ran on strongly late last start and is fitter. 1800m suits but the wide draw doesn’t.

2.Caballero drawn to get a good run and fitter.

7.Black Anasta  good 4th here two back behind a subsequent good winner. No luck last start. Gets 3kgs off.

12.Fantasy Flight 2nd $2.90 – I can’t remember a Myers debut runner ever winning two trials. She is ready to fire up.

Race 2

2.Collinstreet 1st $1.90 closed off strongly late weaving his way through traffic in a strongly run race. The third horse has since won so third up with Sam Collett up, he does look well placed. Negative is he is likely to get back but if Viva Lilli sets a similar tempo as last time, he can do it.

9.Viva Lilli better rated could hold on for a place.

Race 3

7.Fascino Lass trailed nicely and 2nd here fresh up last year in good time. Drawn the ace which is always a nice plus.

3.Rose Bowl  1st $2.80 won well last start. Drawn out and up in class though.

1.High Distinction  goes well fresh and trialed well.

Race 4

12.Together  is nicely bred and looked ready to fire at the trials. Lisa will give it every chance.

1.Darci Palmer 1st $2.80 has useful form on the board and is ready fresh.

16.La Feelya on debut and will be ready from the inside draw on its home course.

Race 5

4.Field of Fire  didn’t fire last start. The rider said he may be better ridden in the open which should happen here. Very good 2nd before that duck egg.

3.Whenharrymetsaddle  did well fresh up 3wide in the open. Has won second up here over 1400m and drawn and weighted to repeat that.

6.Eyes Wide Open  won fresh up over 1600m here last year. Has ability and could upset.

Race 6

6.Expresso Martini 1st $2.30 is ready to win third up. Should land on the pace and be hard to beat.

5.Exemplar  two strong seconds and just needs a good run from the draw.

7.Aratoka  good run here on debut and gets 3kgs off again.

8.Dancing Delight did well to hold second after setting a good pace last start. Drawn to lead.

Race 7

1.Nirvana  just beaten here second up. Fitter now and hard to beat.

10.Austria  1st $4 was a bit stiff here last start. Wide draw won’t help but with Sam Collett up, could get it.

12.Damesel  good run last start and drawn well.

Race 8

12.Gocara  good run on debut and if they go hard, can do it.

7.Dezella did well off a wide draw to get back and run home strongly. Better drawn here.

4.Off The Grid  ha ability and well drawn with Lisa Allpress up.

1.Rio Star won’t get a better chance third up from a good draw and 3kgs off.

Race 9

10.Firefly 1st $3.50 tri $110 two strong runs and 3kgs off really helps. Did well last start 3 wide with cover running second to a smart horse in Rhinstone Cowboy. Nice galloper ready to win.

4.Roc Ya Sox  3rd won well here last start in good time off a good tempo. Step up in class but drawn nicely.

11.Off With Her Head is capable of winning if they go hard.

7.Alvin’s Dream 2nd  has been racing like he needs more ground now.
