Race 1
The Suit has the exposed form to win this event after being close up on all three starts to date. All The Sevens was close up in the soft last time out and expect another big run. The expensive Yearling Flying Arrow has been disappointing but could be better after a rest and softer ground. Watch the first timers in the betting.

Race 2
Shamrock Wind ran on nicely on debut and could be the one to follow here. Bass-Robinson's charge Miss Plumcake was also interesting on debut but well beaten into second. Expect another good run. Doubled Over was close in latest two including in a competitive race last time out.

Race 3

Ikebana is a solid first selection if nothing comes out of the blue from the unraced runners. She has the right form behind Clifton Beach and the upward mobile Raya Baya. Secret Path looks the stable elect of jockey selections are to go by. Watch for improvement. Muscari was prominent in the good going in her penultimate but disappointed last time over ground. Long layoff. Will need it.

Race 4

Mac De Lago is having the weight taken off by the apprentice and was tailed off last time losing 10 lengths, he came back to run on very well. Should be in fine form today after the trainer claimed he wasn't wound upast time out. Woodland's Secret will be carrying a low 48kg over ground and must be one to consider after a good effort last time. Also ran well in a group staying race earlier this year. Watch. Friendly Tibb has been in very good form but is an aging sort. Maybe one more win could be in the tank.

Race 5

The Silva Fox may have been looking for the ground when raced over 500m shorter than this event and could be the right horse over the extra trip now. The Room At The Top for line is present in this event and Troop The Colour is the best of that form when a close up third last time. Love Shot will also have a chance on that formline but has a few lengths to find.

Race 6
Secretariat's Girl surprised with a good run at long odds in a MR 76 with a low mass. Has the apprentice claiming here which means she comes into the race nicely. Royal Chian tired late in last two when beaten by a few lengths. Could place again here. Speedy sort. Sunshine Lady disappointed last time when bumped at the start. More to come.

Race 7
Dalibhunga has three pounds more now for that latest win but ghat still may not be enough to stop him. Red Eight ran in nicely in his penultimate and that could be good enough for a close effort here. Para Handy comes into the race if your fancy Dalibhunga with the weight your around. Place chance.

Race 8
Dream Dancer looks an improving type and that post maiden run was impressive when running on. Believethisbeauty is a maiden but has been a consistent one and she could place again. Waning Crescent ran close up last time in weaker. She could follow up here again with another nice effort.
