R3 | 1100| 7:15pm

The favourite Launch Code is well bred and was impressive in a recent trial but in the wet conditions there’s plenty of uncertainty there. Gloriette resumes here and has a number of ratings up to winning a race of this standard. Tough race.

A very difficult race with the main contenders coming into this with mixed form and / or presenting with uncertainty over either the distance or wet track conditions.

R6 | 1900m | 8:45pm

Cabeza De Vaca is very short, but that looks justifiable off the back of two strong ratings performances which are dominant over this field. Last preparation he ran an equal peak rating over this trip so the step up in distance is no concern. Solid wet form and the prospect of controlling this race in front further enhances his profile.

Race Confidence: Good

1. Cabeza De Vaca$1.55
5. Reiby The Red$6.00
4. Embley$9.00
7. No Return$10.00

R8 | 1100m | 9:45pm

Knit N Purl’s three best career ratings have come on wet ground, including his peak two runs ago when a dominant winner at Randwick. This is an extremely open race, but back to the wet here he could get back to something like that level which would make him hard to beat here. He’s good value at current market prices.
