RACE 1 - DOMINGO (1) is ready to win now after four runs back including two seconds on end at 2100m. Is up in weight but down in class and sure to go close. SUPERTRAIL (3) is lightly raced and was cut down late when runner-up at Gosford last time. Will be on speed here and hard to beat. FRANKIE'S ME DAD (2) is fitter for three runs back and did show some improvement last time in the same race as Domingo on a heavy track. Chance to make an impact. THE BIG BIIG (4) and THREW (7) have place claims.

RACE 2 - BODY OF VENUS (5) has only trialled once but showed plenty of speed in scoring a runaway win at Warwick Farm earlier this month. Saved from a tougher race last week and will give a good account. SKOGAFOSS (3) has trialled twice and looked to bump into a very smart one in running second in his latest. Commands some respect. DEEP JOY (6) was safely held in her only trial but the winner did score by a big space. Better for it and in good hands. Keep in mind. GLORIOSO (7) and SPARTUS (4) should be respected if there's any support.

RACE 3 - SPIRIT OF STORM (4) has a mortgage on this on form and she resumes with blinkers on after two thirds over this course back late last summer. Two trials and the inside gate are pluses. Clearly on top. BOBBY IS KING (1) probably wants further but is lightly raced and while resuming from a long break has won a recent trial and could sprint well fresh. JUST SHANE (2) could show up on debut and PRIDING (12) has a place hope along with HIT SONG (7)..

RACE 4 - EMMADELLA (4) is racing in top form and followed a maiden win with a close second up to this class. Draws well and only has to hold form to be a major player. AMBASSADORS (2) is a lot better than what he showed second-up at Kembla Grange. Freshened and been back to the trials. Look for an improved showing. SAVOCA (6) and SILENT RUSSIAN (3) have claims while HARD PICK (5) could show up.

RACE 5 - RAPBIDASH (5) brings an unbeaten record into this race first-up after a dominant debut win and a cruisy Class 1 win earlier this year. Fitter for two trials, is the one on the up and is versatile. Hard to beat. ROCSTAR BOY (2) is a consistent type who can run a handy race fresh and gets in well with the claim. Sure to be around the mark. SUCCESSFUL (7) scored a popular Bathurst win then close up at Gosford at this level. Capable of being in the finish. BLACK DUKE (1) next best.

RACE 6 - MAGNATEAR (1) looks well placed second-up after going under as favourite at Hawkesbury when resuming. Fitter and suited on the home track and up in distance. Should take stopping. LOST ILLUSIONS (12) is a wild card on debut for top local stable and she's trialled okay for her first start. Watch for any support. AIX EN PROVENCE (2) did enough on debut to say he has some ability and will only be better for it. Genuine chance to be in the finish. COHESIVE (4) and LONHREEL (8) have claims.

RACE 7 - DUBLIN BELLE (6) was kept safe in betting on debut and while she had her chance in front she'll be better for it and a firmer track might also suit. Likely to be harder to run down. OUR UPTOWN GIRL (13) was a drifter in betting last time and didn't make a huge impression from the back. Draws better here and could easily improve. Chance on first-up effort. CRANBERRIES (11) has been a little disappointing this time in but chance on improve on a better surface after an even run at Hawkesbury. Big watch on KENYADA (12) on debut for the Waller yard and BURGUNDY BUBBLES (2) has a show.
