R1
 
MAHARANEE is the only winner in the race. She won with consummate ease and with normal improvement should be hard to peg back. TWIN STRIKE is running well and receives 0.5kg from her. He should give her something to think about, but races before this – watch. STAR COIN is sure to improve on debut. Watch first-timers GREEN SCEPTRE and ARGO ALLEY.
 
Top Tip: MAHARANEE (1)
Watch out for: GREEN SCEPTRE (5)
 
R2
 
MAGIC TYCOON is improving with racing and should appreciate the extra. She should prove hard to beat. TIME FOR GLORY was friendless in the betting on debut but won going away. INEVITABLE was a length behind her but is 3kg better off. It could get close between them. Watch first-timer OCTOBER FAIR.

R3
 
The first of four Apprentice races attracted a small field. This could be a match-race between COLOUR CODED, who should be ripe and ready, and NIGHT LILY, who ran no kind of race last time but is a lot better than that. COUNTRY FLAME could get into the Trifecta. Others are looking for minor money.
 
Top Tip: COLOUR CODED (1)
Watch out for: COUNTRY FLAME (2)
 
R4
 
FREE WYLIE wasn’t disgraced on debut. He races before this – update the form. LEESON must be in with a winning chance but needs to settle. CHARIOT MASTER has disappointed before but should get into the action again. PARKER GETRIX needed his last outing and could get into the money.
 
Watch out for: LEESON (2)
 
R5
 
Good race. Ashley Fortune has three strong entries, BARD OF AVON, CAPTAIN MORISCO and IRFAANS BOY and they look likely to fight it out. ECSTATIC GREEN has plenty of ability but comes off a lengthy lay-off and could just need it. LUCY ENGLISH is no slouch but she too could be short a run.
 
Top Tip: BARD OF AVON (1)
Watch out for: CAPTAIN MORISCO (2)
 
R6
 
Very competitive. IMPOSING ANGEL is bang in form and could complete a hat-trick. She beat ALLEZ LES BLEU (3kg better for 1.15-lengths) and it should get closer. VERINOVA should just hold LOOKING HOT and BETHANY on their recent meeting. GRECIA was just beaten by SPECIAL VARIETY who performed well subsequently – both could have a say. ON CUE will need to make her move earlier. Others could pop up.
 
Top Tip: ON CUE (1)
Watch out for: IMPOSING ANGEL (2)
 
R7
 
ROZARA is holding form and could resume winning ways. Stable companion BEFORE THE DAWN is capable but needs to put it in. NAARAH disappointed last time but could get back on track. BIG EYED GIRL appears held on recent form but could get into the frame. SWEET SENSATION was cut into last time and should do better.
 
Top Tip: NAARAH (1)
Watch out for: ROZARA (5)
 
R8
 
POWER RANGER did well in his first run as a gelding after a rest and will come on in heaps. LETSDOIT is holding form and should run another honest race. GILDED BUTTERFLY is on the up and could grab them late. ELUSIVE SWANN, HERE IS THE TIGER, WEST POINT (gelded now) and COUNT PABLO could make the Quartet.
 
Top Tip: LETSDOIT (1)
Watch out for: POWER RANGER (5)
 
R9
 
Open. BACK TO BASICS flashed up late last time and the extra will suit him. JP TWO THOUSAND should enjoy the extra now and could go on. CROWN PLAZA comes off a maiden win and could follow up. FUNKY MUSIC was cut into last time and could get into the reckoning. GOLDEN TUNE and CATCHTHEGREENLIGHT are more for the short list.
 
Top Tip: JP TWO THOUSAND (4)
Watch out for: FUNKY MUSIC (5)
