RACE 1 AMETHYST (1) will be tough from gate one. Take the $1.65 if you like it. I wouldn’t on average looking workout run. This one is your call.

RACE 2 PRESSED FOR TIME (7) looks a lot more home and hosed at $1.65 FF. Should be the best of the day.

PRESSED FOR TIME was great on debut

RACE 3 ARDEN ROANOKE (10) trialled like he’d win too. Again, short odds at $1.75 FF so maybe add him into your multi.


RACE 5 CHAIN REACTION (13) is worth sticking with eachway. Devoid of luck, and it continued with broken hopple at Gore. Keep well onside at $9.50 FF, a backable price.

RACE 6 ONLY ONE WAY (8) at $2.10 FF or ONE APOLLO (10) $2.80 FF, look our only winners. Hard to get a big result but work around them they look too strong for these.

RACE 7 NOTA BENE DENARIO (7) comes up short in first start for Brett Gray. I’m keen on PRINCE ABBEY (12) and BETTOR ENFORCE (13) in this grade. The former not so well placed yet. The latter very well off back to R40-55.

RACE 8 Another two-horse race. Its wither BORN TO BOOGIE (7) or BRIDESDALE ROBYN (8) winning the race. Short odds beat a long odds failure.

RACE 10 THE BIRD DANCE (9) may be a run or two away from winning in the grade, and probably best if he gets some more practice. But, he has real talent and at $7.50 FF worth a win bet given he’s good enough to towel them.
