Race 1
Weak workriders maiden with the Azzie horse Hot Chocolate likely to improve over the ground. Shows enough pace and could be held back and kick late. Watch. One Dollar Message has decent form and penultimate was encouraging. She is distance suited. Expect another big run. Generoso showed glimpses of decent form in her career but disappointed when mattered. More expected.

Race 2
All Of Me was disappointing at Greyville is a minor feature last time out but was beaten by a nice sort. Filly against the colts here, big run expected. Topmast was far back in the feature last time out and could be better than that. Hit The Green has to find on Topmast and isn't expected to turn around that form.

Race 3
Miss Khalifa won easily on debut and Spies knows how to bring out the babies to win. Much more expected now against winners. Heaven's Reward won drifted last time out but won. Something to like about her finish of that race when not giving up the lead. Vivir could be anything after the Grade 1 effort when beaten 5 lengths. More to come.

Race 4
Tough race with Tripod the choice after an improved effort last time when tiring late. The 1000m trip will suit. Marcus Attilius, a 2yo in older company, may enjoy the pace and could go all the way if not caught late. Western Shamrock has been kept toys division and distance after the maiden win. Expect another place performance.

Race 5
Wild Curve has the weight taken off with the apprentice and this could be a deciding factor in this straight race. Won last time off a low mass. In great form. Huyssteen was it penalized 1 kg for the last win. Looks a promising type. Play The Night comes into this race with a chance after the export behind Wild Curve. Place chance

Race 6
Flowersfromabrook is now well weighted after dropping significantly after winning first time out. Fitter now, second run after the rest. Fly North is consistent without winning recently. Big chance in form. River Ayre was close last time to winning again. Another good effort expected.

Race 7
Soldier On is back in ground and that could do the trick again after a win penultimate over the mile. Won the maiden over this ground. Well Drawn. Sail For Joy got the minimum penulty for winning last time and could go close again. Unrehearsed has run against stronger and was close up in decent company. Expect a nice run again.

Race 8
Winter Storm impressed on debut when backed. Over the mile he should be hard to beat. Eureka Effect ran well ran time on debut without setting the track alight. Could benefit from the run, in a weak maiden now. Stop And Stare ran a much improved race last time even though well beaten. Place expected again.
