Race 1

Confidence:2/5 2nd

4.Youledo has run to strong seconds and David Greene doesn’t travel unless he has got them spot on. Drawn well and should be a nice eachway chance. RP $3.50, $3.80 FF

Race 2

Confidence:4/5

1.Shamus has beaten much better fields than these and should win. RP $1.10, $1.45 FF

Race 3

Race 4

Confidence:2/5 2nd

3.Liquid Les is tough to beat when he can lead. He won fresh up last season leading all the way. He could be in for a minor upset. RP $7, $11 FF

Race 5

Confidence:2/5

3.Rubicon Crossing tried hard against a good one in Codigo. She might be better with a sit as she is likely to snag from the wide draw. Then power home. RP $2.80, $3.00 FF

Dangers:

5.She Turns Heads battled well for sixth in the Karaka Millions and doesn’t mind a wet track.

Race 6

Confidence:2/5

1.Soldier Boy won strongly last start and has won his only start here. Maps to get the ideal run. RP $4, 4.80 FF

Dangers:

10.Mary Louise relishes a wet track and even though it is a step up in grade, she looks right in this on a light weight.

Race 7

Confidence:2/5

5.Freedom Reins has got better every start this campaign and is a nice looking filly. The 18oom will suit. RP 5.00. $7.00 FF

Dangers:

2.Contagious won well last start and the 1800m will suit.

7.Sheez Dominant will like the wet track and is a realistic chance.

Race 8

Confidence:2/5  

3.Testify Me won easily last start and has a strong finish. She will have learnt more with that experience and can go back to back here. RP $5, $6.00 FF

Dangers:

16.Trustworthy will like the heavy track more than most.

15.Aquillo is third up and has Opie Bosson on to help.
