RACE 1: 3 CAPTAIN’S ROSY 4 INDIGO MOON 2 CAPULET’S HEART 10 KINSKEY’S TUNE
Preview: CAPTAIN’S ROSY (3) is a lightly raced four-year-old but has been coming along the right way since starting to race. She showed up well in a competitive maiden field last run and from another good draw should do well. Anton Marcus has stuck with INDIGO MOON (4) who has shown some ability but was disappointing last run. Blinkered for the first time she can make the required improvement. CAPULET’S HEART (2) has been trying further but over raced over a mile in first time blinkers. She can do much better this trip. KINSKEY’S TUNE (10) is seldom out of the money and has first-time blinkers. She has been trying further but this looks to be her best trip. (Andrew Harrison: 3-4-2-10).
RACE 2: 1 YAAS 3 NOEMI 2 HER ROYAL MAJESTY 7 SET THE DATE
Preview: YAAS (1) was a close-up third when dropped in class last run but had useful form to stronger before that. With a 1.5kg claimer up she should go close. NOEMI (3) disappointed last run but is back over her preferred course and distance with a top apprentice aboard. HER ROYAL MAJESTY (2) came in for strong market support last run. She is down in class here and can make amends. SET THE DATE (7) was a recent maiden winner but does show some ability and with a 4kg claimer up should be competitive. (Andrew Harrison: 1-3-2-7).
RACE 3: 4 EAST COAST STAR 10 IMPERIAL SEAL 3 CAPTIVE GOLD 6 CAPTAIN’S DRIFT
Preview: EAST COAST STAR (4) has shown up well in two sprints and was staying on nicely last start. The blinkers come off and she should enjoy the extra furlong. IMPERIAL SEAL (10) is a battling maiden but meets a weak field here. She has not been far back at recent outings. CAPTIVE GOLD (3) has been trying further but may well prefer this shorter trip. Stable has hit form. CAPTAIN’S DRIFT (6) finished down the field in his local debut but had shown some ability in the Cape. Can make dramatic improvement. (Andrew Harrison: 4-10-3-6).
RACE 4: 6 NOT NOW PUSSYCAT 7 SHEIK’S STORM 9 HOT MONEY 10 DARK MISTRESS
Preview: Tough race. NOT NOW PUSSYCAT (6) has been holding form and was narrowly beaten over course and distance last time out. She has a much better draw this time around. SHEIK’S STORM (7) found her best form last run and was narrowly beaten from a coffin draw. She now gets a 4kg claimer and a repeat will see her close again. HOT MONEY (9) has been consistent and taken a drop in ratings. That should make her competitive. DARK MISTRESS (10) did well over course and distance last start. Repeat can see her close. (Andrew Harrison: 6-7-9-10).
RACE 5: 5 BRIGHT FLAME 2 STAND BY ME 6 FIVES WILD 7 ALPHAMIKEFOXTROT
Preview: BRIGHT FLAME (5) has improved with each outing since arriving from Kimberley. He drops in class and ratings and should make a bold bid. STAND BY ME (2) has shown up well in two starts over course and distance and now gets 2.5kg claimer up. ALPHAMIKEFOXTROT (7) has been knocking at the door and should run another good race. FIVES WILD (6) is much better than recent form would suggest. Watch for good improvement. (Andrew Harrison: 5-2-6-7).
RACE 6: 2 BRIGADE 4 IBUTHO 5 SECRET DYNASTY 8 FEVER
Preview: BRIGADE (2) has been close up at recent starts and found good market support last outing. He is down in class here and must have a big chance of a second win. IBUTHO (4) is a recent maiden winner. He is lightly raced and does show some ability. SECRET DYNASTY (5) has run his two best recent races on the poly over course and distance. Must have a chance here. FEVER (8) showed some improvement in blinkers last outing. Battling for second win but can place. (Andrew Harrison: 2-4-5-8).
RACE 7: 3 COLOUR MY FATE 1 MASTER OF DESTINY 4 GALWAY 2 BANJO ON MY KNEE
Preview: COLOUR MY FATE (3) has been doing well in much stronger company. He has taken a recent drop in the handicap and looks well in here. MASTER OF DESTINY (1) has the best of the draw and is in good form over the trip. GALWAY (4) loves the poly and won well last run. Meets slightly stronger here but has drawn well and can follow up. BANJO ON MY KNEE (2) has been consistent of late. Two-point drop in the handicap will help. (Andrew Harrison: 3-1-4-2).
RACE 8: 2 TRIP TO FREEDOM 9 DIAMONDS AND TOADS 4 MAXINE DE MONDE 5 CONKER THE WORLD
Preview: TRIP TO FREEDOM (2) has all the right credentials in this field and should go close. DIAMONDS AND TOADS (9) steps up in trip but shows steady form over shorter. Go close if he stays the extra. MAXINE DE MONDE (4) has shown recent improvement. Has a chance in this company. CONKER THE WORLD (5) has been consistent over shorter but should much prefer this trip. One to watch in the market.
