Race 1

Petite Aime was a nice fourth behind Tortola last time out and has good form prior. Pachanga was a close second last time out and merits respect. She's Tailor Made was disappointing last time after some improvement prior. Expect more improvement now.

Race 2
Drop Kick is a big big runner after another nice runner up position last time out. Waqaas looks limited but this isn't a great maiden. Nice improvement last time. Chance. King Of The Sky improved disappointed last time after a decent first effort. Favoured last time.

Race 3
Pretty Border didn't follow on from that good second, penultimate. Didn't run on though last time and could make this a winning effort. Favourite Model was in front of the first selection last time out but has run a lot and has little room for natural improvement. Dashuri was also disappointing last time after a nice penultimate. Place.

Race 4
Pidgeon Rock jumped awkwardly last time and was on the back foot. Big run expected now after that placed effort. Lazarus Tree has had a break after a disappointing latest and should be mature now. Expect a nice performance. Sergeant Smiley should improve further from that moderate debut effort. Should place here.

Race 5
The filly Goa looks like the penny has dropped with her and after that excellent run behind Mighty High and then the maiden win followed by a smart third last time. She is ripe for a win. Quattro was a close second last time after nice form in this division. Place again. Singaswewin ran a credible race last time out in a better division with lesser weight. Place chance.

Race 6
Mount Keith was slapped with a 7 point adjustment after that smashing win last time out but could still have the better of this field. Chapel Jive is weighted to be closer here but still may need some improvement to beat the first selection. River Ayre was a tad disappointing last time but could place here.

Race 7
Huyssteen was only given 2 points for his latest win and still may be good enough to win again even with the trip drop. Great Shaka has the apprentice claim and that could be the difference for him. Place chance after some decent efforts. Play The Night was improved last time and could place here.

Race 8
Piccadilly Square was much improved behind Poormanslady last time out even losing a length at the start. Serendipity was a close second last time over further but may prefer this distance. Pretty Popular has run some nice races and if repeating her best form has a chance.

Race 9
Camel Walk opened his career with a cracking mile effort. Running on. The trainer hasn't had him over that distance since. This is the first time. Win Chance. Cinnabon improved last time when a length off running on. Big chance. Supermax was moderate on debut but could improve with the outing. Place.

Best Bet Pidgeon Rock
Best Value Camel Walk
