Race 1
Euphoric (scratching) has the form from his first and impressive start to win a race like this. Going the mile on only his second start is interesting. Carlburg disappointed in his latest after running wide and was a spent force for that. Had the 4kg apprentice. Big chance now. Forefoot is looking for this ground and could be in the money again. Sigismund wasn't far off on debut and could be right there today.

11/4 Euphoric, 3/1 Sigismund, 4/1 Master Thief, 6/1 Caesura, 6/1 Perpetual Flame, 12/1 Firefoot, 16/1 Small Town Dude, 20/1 Carlburg, 25/1 Don't Look Back, 25/1 Flying Fort, 33/1 Bells Apostle, 50/1 Bangkok, 66/1 Thomas Jefferson, 66/1 Dancing Moonlight

Race 2
Holy Land ran a smart race behind Ram Trip last time out after losing ground at the start. The mile should suit after a running on effort last time.
Merlin From Berlin was also impressive on his debut when green. Better effort expected here. Two Stroke may improve on his latest effort after being wide. One to watch.

7/2 Internet Kid, 4/1 Holy Land, 6/1 Two Stroke, 7/1 Merlin From Berlin, 8/1 Ninjinsky's Son, 8/1 Leave Me Alone, 10/1 War Demon, 12/1 If And When, 16/1 Verisimilitude, 20/1 Youonlyliveonce, 25/1 King Dadewethu,

Race 3
The Bosch stable is in good nick and Flamenco Dancer may just be the right horse in this competitive event. Was close up last time and needs to find that bit extra to win. Osprey is in prime form and has hardly put a foot wrong. Should go close. Miziara has been close up in two of her latest events. Place again here.

5/1 Osprey, 11/2 Just My Style, 6/1 School Run, 7/1 Hidden Thought, 7/1 Pearl Glow, 10/1 Miziara, 10/1 Flamenco Dancer, 12/1 Seek The Summit, 25/1 Mark My Card, 25/1 Karatage, 25/1 Just One More, 25/1 Imagine That, 33/1 Magic Memory, 33/1 Eternal Words, 50/1 Parade's End

Race 4

American Captain has a wide draw but it wasn't his most comfortable run last time out and still finished third. One to be with here. Swift Move was decent last time when staying on. Place here. Los Barbados is a long time maiden. Has been fairly consistent. Another place chance here.

4/1 Swift Move, 5/1 Shine Up, 5/1 American Captain, 6/1 Los Barbados, 6/1 Kinglassie, 10/1 Aiden's Porsche, 25/1 Regal River, 33/1 Khadine, 33/1 Global Pursuit, 33/1 World Cruise, 33/1 Ferris, 50/1 Semaphore News, 50/1 Jet'e Amour

Race 5
Anime gets the nod here after that brilliant effort behind a subsequent Grade 1 winner at level weights. She should be good value in the betting too. Jo's Bond has the class to run close in this event but has a heavy weight. Great form to SOMMERLIED last time out. Via Sacra is an up and coming type and looks to never run a bad race. Could place again here.

5/1 Vision To Kill, 6/1 Via Sacra, 7/1 Hashtag Strat, 8/1 Jo's Bond, 8/1 Anime, 8/1 Casual Diamond, 10/1 China Pearl, 10/1 Essenceoflife, 12/1 Miss Varlicious, 12/1 Geographe Bay, 16/1 Princess Peach, 50/1 Gratuity, 66/1 Anneline, 66/1 Light On Her Toes

Race 6
Cause And Effect ran a nice race behind Princess Vicky last time out and could the improving type we are looking for in this event. One to beat. Princess Vicky should run another good race here after decent recent form. Rainbowinthesky was also behind Princess Vicky last time out and now gets the apprentice claim which could make the contest interesting.

4/1 Forehand, 5/1 Princess Vicky, 6/1 Cause And Effect, 7/1 Peppermint Tea, 8/1 Shwanky, 8/1 Simply Scrumptious, 12/1 Diamond In The Sky, 12/1 Love Theme, 16/1 Rainbowinthesky, 16/1 Salimah, 20/1 Royal Agree, 20/1 Dunzie, 25/1 Rock On Wood, 33/1 Victorious Diva, 33/1 Marsala, 66/1 Mind Your Business

Race 7
Perfect Air won nicely in the maidens and could be the right horse here in a fairly weak event. Rub of The Green has the weight taken off and that brings her into the event nicely. Watch. High Altar also has decent form behind Expresso Martini. Watch for another good run.

4/1 Rub Of The Green, 5/1 High Altar, 6/1 Hatfield Square, 6/1 Perfect Air, 10/1 Hannah's Answer, 12/1 Power Horse, 12/1 Janice's Secret, 20/1 Roman Courtesan, 20/1 Flaming Desire, 25/1 Pomona, 25/1 Aim For The Stars, 33/1 Art Attack, 33/1 Salsa Queen, 33/1 Vallanaut, 33/1 Roy's Zara

Race 8

Q The Music is ripe for a victory after some close efforts of late. Blinkers are off which means that her running tactics could change from the normal handy style. That would make the difference. Waywood win last time out but steps up in class now. 2kgs extra means she needs to improve further to win. Amanika was close up last time and look to still be learning aaftef losing ground last time out.

3/1 Waywood, 4/1 Amanika, 5/1 Q The Music, 5/1 The Bayou, 12/1 Bluemoonrising, 14/1 Putchini, 16/1 Master Of Mischief, 16/1 Admiral's Guest, 25/1 Asian Star

Race 9
Believe The Best is well bred and ran a nice race on debut. It was weak field but she showed enough to win here. Hey Jude is a big danger after two places efforts. Holy Flame had hardly disappointed her connections and that could be the case again. Another place chance.

3/1 Believe The Best, 4/1 Holy Flame, 5/1 Amberbell, 5/1 Hey Jude, 5/1 Amber Furst, 12/1 Frame Of Mind, 12/1 Roy's Novice, 12/1 Lilibet, 25/1 Teetotal, 25/1 Liberty Print, 33/1 Pamunkey, 33/1 Three Ships, 33/1 Purple Sky, 50/1 Photograph, 50/1 Royal Chariot
