RACE 1 - SHE'S PUSHY (5) is ready to make her return after enjoying a successful debut prep. Has good early dash and is drawn to advantage with winning hoop in Zechner reuniting. From an in-form stable and is the one to beat. PALEFACE RINGO (1) got off the mark in fine style two back at Toowoomba and then went close to making it two on the bounce at Ipswich. Yet to miss the frame in his first three starts and is well-placed to continue on his merry way. MISHANI STORM (4) is yet to make an impact in her two resuming efforts but has been tackling stronger company. Drops back to the country circuit and is well-placed to feature at the business end. RIVER ROGUE (2) knuckled down gamely to return a winner at the latest. This is tougher but he warrants respect.

RACE 2 - MASTER MIYAGI (9) returns and makes his stable debut for Dale Groves. Carries good form as he ventures north, finding the frame in 6/9 starts. Looks to strike one of his easiest assignments to date and is a leading player. HYDROS (7) was no match for an impressive maiden winner when resuming over the 800m at Ipswich but still chased soundly to grab second. Is sure to improve with that run under the belt and will appreciate the extra 200m. The main danger. TUANAKI CREEK (4) came through a strong form race at Ipswich two back to go close to shedding the maiden tag last start. Draws to get all the favours from the inside pillar and is worth keeping safe. IMPOUNDED (2) next best.

RACE 3 - MAKE IT SO (10) is ready to make her return. Carries the best exposed form with two solid efforts at Ipswich in her debut prep. Tricky alley to contest but she could have a clear edge on these. LITTLE CHARMER (6) returns and is having her first start for a new yard, with Brooke Ainsworth training and riding. Showed some positive signs when resuming on the Sunshine Coast Poly last time in work and strips fitter for placing in a lead-up trial. Gets her chance to play a major role. WET FAT CAT (7) has done a good job to run into the placings in her last two, her most recent effort the best to date. Is open to further improvement and is among the main chances. AXIANTO (1) is on debut. By Spirit Of Boom and comes from the Paul Shailer stable. Good draw a big help. Watch the market closely.

RACE 4 - ONE 'N' ONLY (1) missed by the barest of margins last start at Sunshine Coast, bouncing back strongly from two lesser showings. Strikes an easier assignment this time as she stays at a preferred trip. Carries the top weight and is the leading contender. ROCONONO (4) was sound when resuming at Chinchilla but progressed nicely last start when beaten a head at Toowoomba. Should be nearing his peak now and is aided again at the weights with the 2kg claimer engaged. Gets his chance to break a very long run of outs. HOKUSAI (6) did a good job to shed the maiden tag fresh and has since followed it up with two solid efforts. Ticking along nicely and gets in well at the weights with the claimer on. Has her chance. PULL THE TAIL (7) next best.

RACE 5 - TOWN CRIER (4) was doing his best work late first-up when closing strongly into fourth at the Sunshine Coast. Is sure to have come on from the hit-out and is drawn kinder. Expect him to take plenty of stitching. THE LUCKY ALIEN (1) kept finding to return a winner last start at Ipswich. Has enough dash to offset the wide alley and is expected to be in this for a very long way. JOJO RABBIT (5) improved sharply second-up getting the verdict at Gatton. Can take another step in the right direction here as he returns to a venue she's tasted success at before. SALT LAKE BETTY (6) showed good early dash when resuming at Gatton, only to be claimed late and finish third behind Jojo Rabbit. Concedes weight to the winner but gets a positive jockey switch in Matheson.

RACE 6 - BOOM CRUSHER (2) hasn't handled the Poly in his both attempts this prep but only just missed here two back. Should appreciate making a return to the turf and is drawn favourably. Leading player. FALLGUY (3) closed off nicely into the frame when resuming at Toowoomba. Is sure to take benefit from the run but will need some luck from the car park draw. BLAZE RUNNER (1) was only fair to the line when facing a testing Beaudesert track on debut. Should improve with the race experience and is among the main hopes. PANDA DRUM (7) strips fitter third-up after two minor placings. Next best.

RACE 7 - STELLAR LADY (8) returns for the smart O'Dea & Hoystead partnership. Showed plenty of promise in her debut prep, winning smartly on debut and then following it up with a close minor placing in town. Trialled strongly in readiness and is the one to beat. XERRI (3) hasn't saluted in a long while but has found the frame in his last four. Drawn to advantage from the inside pillar and can be in this for a long way. INSPIRED DREAM (14) is ready to make her return after enjoying a successful prep last time in. Has ability and can make her presence felt. ROCK DIAMOND (5) next best.

RACE 8 - SOOBLOND (9) worked into the rise nicely fresh but just peaked on his run late to finish shy of the frame. Is sure to have come on with that run under the belt and is drawn well again. Leading player. RICH AGAIN (5) looked to be nearing his first win of the prep before running into what looks an above-average one last start at the Sunny Coast. Drawn wide so expecting him to head back early and be saved for the final crack at them. ZOUTHUR (3) has failed to threaten in his two resuming efforts but strikes an easier task this time. Fitter third-up and can improve sharply. SALACIA (8) loomed up and fought hard to record a comfortable maiden win at Chinchilla. Tougher this time around.

RACE 9 - BORN FEARLESS (4) got off the mark nicely at Chinchilla and then followed it up with a bold front-running effort here. Is drawn well and should be in this for a long way. JOY MCCOY (1) is yet to strike through this time in but hasn't been disgraced. Caught the eye last start at Toowoomba and has the ability to finish over the top of them. TALANA (5) only warmed to his task late when resuming at Toowoomba. Should improve with that run under the belt and is among the chances. FLY LIKE HELEN (7) best of the rest.

RACE 10 - TOUCH OF GRACIE (9) was far from disgraced last start at Doomben when tackling tougher opposition. Faces a far less daunting assignment this time and well placed to make a return to the winner's circle if anywhere near her best. THE DEPUTY (2) returned in the best possible way at Toowoomba when scoring by a head. Should improve with that run under the belt and looks the main danger. TANGO FAME (5) knuckled down strongly to get the verdict here last start. Tougher this time but gets some weight relief to assist. VISUAL ELEMENT (10) returns for the Hatch stable. Yet to salute fresh but strips fitter for a Toowoomba trial and is worth considering on best efforts. Could just need the run.
