Race 1
Donnan was decent on debut when four lengths off. More to off now. He is a big runner and the money seems to be down on him to win this one. Easybrook was impressive first time out and then relapsed badly of late. Did run in a feature last time. Flying George has been a few lengths off in all starts and looks to improve to win, place chance. Watch the short priced favourite unraced Francisco now 12/10.

Race 2
Muzi Yeni has found a home at the Howells stable and Wildly In Love could be the right one here. Only beaten 3.5 lengths first time out. Big runner. Generous Lady was also beaten by the same margin first time out and is the second choice. Boundless Deep was second on two occasions, beaten in open company and then in a juvenile plate. Big Chance again.

Race 3
Internet Kid has been supported on nearly all his starts to date and has disappointed followers. Has great form though and must go close to winning this event. Prince Charming was impressive so far on the two starts to date. One to watch. Days Of Thunder shaped up well after the moderate debut and further improvement is expected again. Watch.

Race 4
On That Boulevard is the selection after a decent effort last time out. Gratuity must be a runner with the weight off and no mass to carry, comes off the Hashtag Strat formline as well. Rock Of Africa wasn't far off in the feature last time out. Could be there again, Macduff is a decent sort on his day. Poor in latest two. Could be better than that.

Race 5
Je Suis Silver has the weight off again from the apprentice claim and comes into this race with a decent chance. Good latest efforts in stronger company. Big runner. Lily Theresa has the weight off as well and an ok draw, will be running on over this the shortest trip. Down in class. Just Vogue is the next best on form but does have the weight off advantage. Place chance.

Race 6
Sea Sponge is weighted to beat Laat Lammetjie on that last run and returns to a grass, hasn't been too bad of late and has dropped in the ratings. Passioneight could benefit from the weight turnaround on the latest effort and place chance is expected. Apprentice claims. King's Music is a big runner on that last run, one to watch.

Race 7
Onesie is back to the mile after the Oaks disappointment, this could be the right trip coupled with the weight off, the recipe for success is there. Runs to form in this division. Star Evolution has a wide draw but was close up in the latest feature. Roy's Stingray looks a class package that needs time. She has moderate form post maiden but is furnishing. Watch.

Race 8
Ovation Award is nice type in older company now. Ran to a classy horse last time but carries a big mass. At this time of the year and being almost 3, should be fine. Lowest MR yet for Regent Seven and could be in with a shout after another nice effort last time. Two Stroke could place from that wide draw after the maiden win.

Best Bet
Internet Kid

Best Value
Je Suis Silver

Bet Advice: It's a difficult card but there's value, play small and wide in exotics.
