RACE 1 - EMMADELLA (15) smart filly who finds her race today fifth-up. Showed a ton of fight with the 58kg in the atrocious conditions when a game second over 1400m at Randwick Kensington on June 12. Drop in weight suits from the good draw. Hard to hold out. PUTT FOR DOUGH (6) holding form well in this company and kept fresh here after finishing third over 1400m at Randwick on May 25. Will sit on the speed and prove hard to run down again. CRUEL SUMMER (4) racing in career best form and returns from a 49-day let-up. Will find this easier after being collared late when third over 1200m at Newcastle in BM78 grade on May 11. The 3kg claim keeps him in the mix. MONTE MAXIMUS (20) improving gelding who deserves his shot here on the limit weight. Charged late with the 58kg when a sound fourth over 1500m at Kembla Grange on June 20. Look for him powering late in this stronger event.

RACE 2 - ASSOCIATE (2) returned from a let-up with an eye catching third behind REMATCH over this track and trip on June 1. Can race closer from the good gate here and the 3kg claim will make it that little bit easier. Go close. AGIRLSBESTFRIEND (8) nice return in the heavy (9) going when she came from near last on the turn for a slogging third over 1400m here in this grade on June 15. Goes equally as well second-up and Duggan keeps the ride. SHIHAB (3) holding his form well and showed plenty of tenacity when charging late with the big weight to run second over 1400m here on June 15. Can stalk the speed today and take a hand in the finish. TOES IN THE WATER (10) back in grade when asserting her authority late for a tough 0.6 len win over 1500m at Goulburn on June 21. Keatings rides again with the 3kg claim but the wide draw will make it tough.

RACE 3 - FATHER'S DAY (7) tough gelding at his top now after being collared late when a sound on-pace second as a well-fancied fav over 2400m at Randwick Kensington in easier grade on June 12. Sharp weight drop with the claim and will take a ton of catching fourth-up. NAVAL COMMISSION (9) progressive staying gelding chasing his fourth-straight victory here. Strong through the line when a comfortable 1.1 len winner over 2200m at Warwick Farm on June 5. Looks up to the steep class rise from the inside draw. KUREDER (8) undefeated in two attempts over the 2400m and looks well in with the 3kg claim today. Anchored with the 58.5kg in the heavy (9) going when fifth over 2000m here two weeks ago. No shock to see him finish over the top of these. Group 1 placegetter GAN TEORAINN (5) returned to form with an encouraging third from well back over 2400m in the LR Winter Cup here on June 15. Senior rider on today and a repeat of latest should see her play a leading role in this easier contest.

RACE 4 - NANA'S WISH (12) holding her form and stretches out to the 1800m for the first time. Held on well in the heavy (9) going from the wide gate when a narrow sixth over 1600m at Randwick on June 8. Extra trip shouldn't pose a problem and expected to figure prominently. BRIGHT RED (14) back in trip and down in weight when returned to form with a swooping head victory over 1600m at Randwick in this class on June 8. At her peak now and should get the right tempo from the sticky draw to run out a strong 1800m. FOR VICTORY (5) racing in peak form this prep and total forgive in the heavy (9) conditions when a poor ninth over 2000m here on June 15. Drop in trip with the 3kg claim will see his hard to hold out from the inside gate. AMBERITE (3) Victorian gelding with a stack of ability back in grade and trip for this. Went under narrowly in a tight finish behind FOUJITA SAN when second over 2000m at Caulfield in BM84 grade on June 1. Can get cover early from the draw and play a leading role.

RACE 5 - HA HA HA (2) huge performance at first Australian start when she returned from a lengthy layoff to go under narrowly when sitting on the speed for a gritty second over 1300m here on June 15. McLucas rides again with the claim and will prove hard to run down. AFRICAN DAISY (4) gets the map favours today from the good draw and saves her best for this track and trip. Rawiller sticks after being nailed late when second over 1200m at Warwick Farm on June 5. Expecting Nash to get the best out of her late. Go close. DAZZLING LUCY (5) got into the box seat early and loomed strongly inside the final 200m when a gritty third over 1300m here on June 15. Firmer track will help her cause and Jake Noonan comes up to ride from Victoria. Stays in the mix. DEMIANA (7) total forgive in the heavy (9) going at latest when she never looked to be travelling when a poor last over 1300m here on June 15. Fitted with a recent trial and can turn it around from the good gate. Don't underestimate.

At her top now and can win again despite rising 3kg in weight. COSMONOVA (13) stablemate to IN FLIGHT who was a run short first-up when a close-up fourth to ONE DESTINY over 1100m at Warwick Farm on June 5. Undefeated second-up and drops 5kg in weight for this.

Big drop in grade and looks good value. FLIGHTCREW (9) racing in career best form and has more to offer. Dug in and held off all challengers when a gritty winner over the 1200m here on June 15. Will be in this for a long way with the 3kg claim.

RACE 7 - Multiple Group 2 placegetter WATERFORD (2) steps out to the 2000m for the first time after failing to get through the heavy (9) going when a plugging sixth over 1600m at Randwick on June 8. This looks a target race and worth noting Rawiller is back aboard. FONISKA (9) six weeks between runs when doing her best work late to finish fifth over 2000m in the LR Lord Mayor's Cup at Randwick on June 8. Strips fitter and has top-three prospects.

Group 3 placegetter LORD ARDMORE (10) is another of the Waller runners with a good third-cup record. Snagged back from the wide gate and never got into the contest when 14th over 1600m at Randwick on June 8. Strong on his day and not to be underestimated.

Fitter now and will prove hard to run down from the inside gate. SILVANITO (5) underrated gelding due for a change of luck in this company.

Rawiller rides and will appreciate the drop in weight. Looks ready to win. HIGHLIGHTS (8) has fitness on his side and total forgive from the outside draw when a wilting ninth over 1600m at Randwick on June 8. Claim helps and no shock to see him turn it around. Group 2 placegetter WAR ETERNAL (10) surprised at big odds third-up when launching late for a tough nose victory over 1400m at Randwick three weeks ago. Will handle the class rise and power late from the awkward gate.

Finished off last campaign when fifth over 2400m at Chantilly in the G3 Pr Du Lys Longi on June 18, 2023. Fitted with two searching trials and gelded over the break. Market moves must be closely monitored. FRANZ JOSEF (1) smart Snitzel gelding chasing his third-straight victory today.

Comes out of a strong form race and kept up to the mark with a recent Wyong trial. Maps well with the claim and expected to go close.

KING OF NAPLES (9) nice return with the 60kg when he sat on the pace for a tough fourth over 1100m at Scone on May 18. Plagued by wet tracks since and will appreciate the claim from the low draw today. Stays in the mix. STARMAN (15) enigmatic gelding with a fitness edge over most of these.
