SLUMBER PARTY may look to cross with IN TIMES OF WAR and WRITE THIS DOWN and ZONK more than likely taking a sit. IN TIMES OF WAR has hung on well in solid races and the one to beat if gets across ok. SLUMBER PARTY has ok 2yo form and trials ok under pressure this time. SWEET ADALINE hit line ok in trial but probably looking for longer and ZONK is trialling well and looks to get a good run
R2 | 1100m | 1:45pm
MISSILE STRIKE and RAIDEN have the most pace drawn wide with FIERY TRAIL and PALLADIAN getting good runs next. MISSILE STRIKE disappointed last start in solid race and previous form OK. PALLADIAN running on well and gets a good run. RAIDEN went fair in strong race first up and can improve and SILVERWIN trialling very well under a hold and looks to have ability
R3 | 1200m | 2:20pm
Lack of pace with POUND STERLING and MR WIND looking to get soft runs on speed with FUEL not too far away. QUANTRILL is running on well but lacks speed. FUEL was wide first up and stuck on OK and gets a better run here. POUND STERLING racing OK in stronger races and gets map favours. FIFTY WAYS missed the start and ran on fair first up. MR WIND has ok bris form and maps well
R4 | 2200m | 2:55pm
BALBOA PARK likely leads from DOC HOLLIDAY and HAYMATE with the rest easing. DOC HOLLIDAY is one paced but grinds away. BALBOA PARK missed the start last time and ran on well. Previous form on pace solid in weaker races but maps well. ALLISION lacks speed but runs on fair. DON PELLEGRINO is running on well this prep. Suited up in dist but lacks speed and LINDWALL is running on fair but maps well
R5 | 1400m | 3:30pm
DREAMFORCE, GALAXY WARRIOR and LUCKY FISH all have speed with the others looking for a sit. 1 had favours 1st up and this harder but maps well again. GALAXY WARRIOR racing consistently and should get across OK. LIAPARI 1st up from NZ but trial OK. LUCKY FISH been disappointing this prep and needs to improve. COUNTESS MARINOV won well first up before on speed second up. Will improve with a sit.
R6 | 1300m | 4:05pm
SWEET REDEMPTION, IL MIO DESTINO and NASSAK get good runs on pace with the rest prefering to ease. SWEET REDEMPTION has solid form in better races last prep. Maps well and recent trials good. ZELDA can run on OK and gets a soft run. BELLA GALEANO ran on OK first up but lacks speed. NASSAK on pace but limited. ULTIMATE DREAMER failed on wet first up then went to Brisbane. Trial prior was OK so could improve here.
R7 | 1600m | 4:45pm
BENTLES will look to cross with REIBY THE RED with maybe SHALMANESER and POWER OF PATCH looking to keep them out. MONTAUK ran on well 1st up but draw tricky. NEW TIPPERARY also ran on well and can settle closer here. ZOURKHAN ran on fair 1st p. Lacks speed but suited up in dist. POWER OF PATCH maps well but limited. TATOOSH improved second up and can run on OK and HIGH OPINION ran on well first up. Suited up in distance and can be closer here.
R8 | 1100m | 5:25pm

UPSCALE was a strong win 1st up but draw against and FAITH’S ENCORE had favours last start but gets an OK run again
