Race 1
Frozen Tune hasn't run a bad race yet and is really overdue this maiden win, after running on well at the latest attempt. Frank Lloyd Wright was best at his first start and disappointed since then but should go close again. Sacred Night has the weight taken off by promising Luke Ferraris, expect an improved run if not ready to upset.

9/10 (4) Frank Lloyd Wright

14/10 (5) Frozen Tune

12/1 (1) Bravo Boy

16/1 (7) Sacred Night

20/1 (6) Rock The Cot

20/1 (9) Skidoo

33/1 (3) Captainofthesea

33/1 (8) Seventh Silver

50/1 (10) The Barrister

80/1 (2) Buffett

Race 2
Room At The Top has improved with every run and has good form behind a horse who has won again. Top selection of the day. Silver League was improved last time out but has been generally disappointing. Place chance. Brandenburg has had three great placings in his recent efforts and should go into that same bracket again. Well beaten last time when he pulled. He could be the pace in this race.

1/1 (1) Room At The Top

4/1 (3) Silver League

11/2 (2) Brandenburg

14/1 (6) Love Shot

14/1 (7) Parisian Gold

50/1 (10) That S All

66/1 (11) Big Boy Benji

Race 3
Cape Xtreme is down in class but had the weight taken off by the 4kg claimed last time out when he lost to a better ride from the winner. Will go close again. Paddington unlucky not to catch Rock My Soul last time out and will run another game race. Great form in this type of company. Shadow Warrior won last time out and has the penulty for that. Place chance.

5/2 (1) Cape Xtreme

5/2 (2) Paddington

6/1 (4) Shadow Warrior

6/1 (9) Mr Lover Boy

7/1 (6) Flying Ryan

7/1 (7) King Of Aces

12/1 (3) William The Brave

20/1 (5) Elusive Run

33/1 (8) Bonnieandclyde

Race 4
Open event but Mega Secret gets the nod here after some very decent form. Was close last time out when running on nicely. Piracy is a consistent sort and hasn't run a bad race bar when he missed the break a few starts back. Big chance. Earl Of Warwick was great post maiden when not too far off. Could further that form with a place here.

9/2 (7) Piracy

5/1 (4) Mega Secret

11/2 (2) Green Archer

13/2 (8) Earl Of Warwick

7/1 (11) Tyrandeus

7/1 (13) Siberian Husky

8/1 (3) Manetheren

12/1 (1) Selailai

14/1 (5) In The Jungle

16/1 (9) Palo Alto

33/1 (10) African Messiah

33/1 (12) Pergola

Race 5
Ostinato could defy the handicapper and win again after a cracking effort in January. Coming off a break but gets the maximum claimer. Over Again won last time and is in fine form, could follow that up with another good effort. Vice Versa carries a hefty burden after the maiden win but looks classy. Could place here.

5/1 (1) Vice Versa

5/1 (7) Straat-kind

6/1 (5) Over Again

13/2 (4) Ostinato

13/2 (9) Passion Peach

8/1 (6) Quick Brown Fox

10/1 (8) It Is What It Is

10/1 (11) Regal Ruby

12/1 (2) Trip The Willow

16/1 (3) Nanna Anna

16/1 (10) Rush Hour Girl

16/1 (12) Rebels Spirit

Race 6
This listed contest for the filly juveniles brings together some promising juniors but the vote goes to the unraced Juniper Spring. Exceptionally well bred, the stable wouldn't run her in this event if they didn't think she had a top chance. Watch the betting. Nous Voila won on debut and followed that up with a good second. Big chance. The same goes for the well bred and performed Santa Clara who ran two exceptional races to date. Big chance.

15/10 (5) Nous Voila

17/10 (3) Juniper Spring #

33/10 (6) Santa Clara

7/1 (4) Mixed Signals

14/1 (1) Carioca

16/1 (2) Coral Bay

Race 7
The Cape Nursery is another lovely event to look forward to with Arabian Air getting the nod after a decent effort last time out  when he was beaten over further, this 1200m event will be up his alley. Big runner. Seventh Sea was impressive in the wet and if the weather is the same, big chance. Watch. Clouds Unfold comes from a powerful stable and has the form to win. Big chance. 

15/10 (8) Clouds Unfold

19/10 (1) Arabian Air

5/1 (7) Watch Me Dad

7/1 (4) Mr Crumford

10/1 (3) Lucky Dancer

10/1 (6) Seventh Sea

25/1 (5) Sailor Sam

Race 8
Namibia is carrying no weight with Ferraris onboard and could be the lurker here. A recent win and a nice placed effort will make her a runner in this open contest. Travel In Style has a similar weight advantage over the better horses at the top of the race. Two great seconds. Place chance. Elusive Touch has a wide draw but comes in with decent form. Expect a nice run. Be careful this race is a train smash. Play carefully.

4/1 (10) Expedite

6/1 (14) Travel In Style

7/1 (9) Philae

8/1 (15) Elusive Touch

10/1 (7) Queen Moira

10/1 (8) Royal Frost

12/1 (3) Glamorous Life

12/1 (17) Bendy Bullet

14/1 (11) Romantic Crusade

14/1 (12) Namibia

16/1 (5) Leisure Trip

20/1 (13) Seattle Sound

22/1 (6) Woodstock Fairy

33/1 (2) Northern Ballet

33/1 (16) Wedgwood
