R1 | 1600m | 1:30pm

Lady Koocachoo is a clear top selection here. Been racing in top form and 1600 looks to suit. Blinkers go on. Annata Lady is another that looks suited by the 1600. Third and looks ready to peak. Am taking on Mojestic at its early price. Is a chance but looks too short.

R2 | 1100m | 2:00pm

A few first starters from good stables makes this race difficult to assess. Of the raced horses, there doesn’t appear to be a lot between First Approach and Speedy Illusion. First Approach was fair on debut and hasn’t raced for 230 days. Jumped out well recently and is naturally short coming from the Weir stable. Speedy Illusion rated well first up when heavily backed. Is a very nice price in the early market.

R3 | 1400| 2:30pm

Another maiden with several unraced horses. Though, perhaps not as significant as the previous race. Aljamaal is the top selection. Has been good in both runs this prep and should be nearing peak third up. Viv Said No is the value horse. Rates well off recent runs and double figures looks a good price. Danger in Devon is also a strong chance. Recent jump out was ok and looks about the right price.

R4 | 1400m | 3:00pm

A couple of promising horses stand out here but the market has them well pegged. Think Babe romped in for the Weir stable last start. Hasn’t raced for 48 days which suggests a set-back but has jumped out well. Saxophone was also impressive winning on its first Victorian run. Is a strong second selection.

R5 | 2200m | 3:30pm

The race has been decimated by scratchings. This looks a suitable race for Al Shameel. Recent ratings are good enough to be a clear top pick. Should be on the speed and hard to get passed with the rail out. Unfortunately, the good early value has been lessened by the scratchings.

R6 | 1000m | 4:00pm

I’m Too Hot looks very well placed here. Coming off a high rating third in stronger class last start. Oliver goes on in a significant jockey change too. Has been supported in early betting too. Pretty happy to take on the rest.

R7 | 1600m | 4:30pm

An open race with the import Guizot the top selection. Ran fantastically to win first up when supported at odds. Oliver again taking the ride and the one to beat if not flattened by the first up run. Ashdam looks the value runner. Appears to be the natural leader. Has been racing well including a good win in the Corowa Cup before the jockey weighed in light. Prepared to risk Steggler first up although doing that with Weir horses can be fraught with danger.

R8 | 1200m | 5:00pm

An open sprint to finish the card. Boss Coni romped in on a soft track first up and looks a horse of good potential. Is a little short in the early market. There are a number of other chances including Rain Fast, Sandhurst Delight and Toffatin. Am not writing off Miss Counterfeit who broke through last start and is a value runner.
