R9   12345678910111214151617 (Field)


Race 1

Confidence: 3/5

5.Phelan The Power fought hard for 3rd on Wednesday. If he repeats that and he’s the type that can, he can lead or sit on a soft lead and win. Drawn well and rates on top. RP $3, $4.50 FF

Race 3

Confidence: 2/5  2nd $2.00

1.Amberecho was very impressive winning the first day. She rises 3.5kgs in weight but that should not be enough to stop her. RP $4.50, $5.50 FF

Race 4

Confidence:4/5 1st $1.30

1.Legarto has been very impressive this campaign and should relish the 1600m. She looks head and shoulders above these rates 3 lengths clear in the Formpro Ratings.. The only danger to her is a slow pace. If she gets caught up in traffic she will be in trouble but she looks so superior to these, she can still win. RP $1.30, $1.40 FF Likely to be Boosted to $1.60 plus and is!

Race 6


7.Lincoln’s Cruz won really well last week in fast sectionals. He is still on the up and drawn out which could be a plus. Lisa Allpress rides. $4.50


3.Can I Get An Omen won impressively fresh up and trialed well when winning. Last season she ran 4th after travelling 3w in the open to Levante and Rock ‘N’ Horse who have gone on to great form. Drawn the inside which ensure she gets a good run. They will be coming out to the centre of the track by this time of day so she looks well placed. RP 3.80, $4.50 FF (Update: After seeing how the track played on Saturday the inside is not the place to be )

Race 7

Confidence:2/5  3rd $2.60

11.Fettercairn was an unlucky runner last week that should have won. She ran the fastest sectionals home and won at this meeting last year. Drawn handy and Samantha Wynne will be looking to make up for last week’s unlucky run. RP $5.00, $6.50 FF

Race 8

Confidence:2/5  1st $2.80

7.Aljay has had the ideal lead up to the Cup and ran the fastest last 600m of the race last start. He gets in on a winning weight. Trained by Dummy Myers and has obviously been set for this. RP $4, $4.50 FF
