RACE 1 - ZEEZEA (7) just missed in a high rating race at Pinjarra last time out, finishing 1.3L off the winner. That form holds up strongly and Chris Parnham hops in the saddle this time. She has the pace to get across from the outside alley and if she can run up to her recent form, she should be getting the job done. TOURETTO (3) had plenty of fans when disappointing last start at Pinjarra, beaten 5.6L when sitting up on the speed. He should get a nice run in transit again from a nice alley and he can bounce back in a big way. NATURAL GEM (8) was solid on debut at Northam, sticking on strongly to finish 1.4L off the winner. The form has been franked out of race and he should be both fitter and more experience. Expecting him to be in the finish. LIKE NO OTHER (5) disappointed when tiring first-up but he'll strip fitter for that run. Can improve. TOP OF THE WALK (1) is better than he showed last start and can resume in good form.

RACE 2 - FOXY RASCAL (7) was in the market on debut but bumped into a smart one who has gone on with the job since. His trial this time in was solid and he looks to have plenty of upside being lightly raced. Expecting him to have come on in the break and if he has, he should be winning this. I'M CRAFTY (8) bumped into a progressive type on debut, finishing 5L off the winner. There's been 3 winners from 4 starters since and Carbery can put him in a good position. This looks a suitable event and he won't be far away. TEABISCUIT (1) is better than he showed last start when finishing 3.9L off the winner at this track and trip. The 3kg claim comes in handy today and he'll take plenty of catching from the front. CORRECT CHOICE (4) has won a trial in readiness for today and looks ready to fire. Can make a winning return without surprising. HUHTAMAKI (13) can improve on what she did first-up after trialling well leading in.

RACE 3 - DEVILS I (4) has had a few goes now, finishing 1.8L off the winner at Pinjarra most recently. CJP takes the ride now and if he can run up to what he's done in recent efforts, he can shed the maiden tag. FLYING CHOUX (8) was put away after an eye-catching debut effort on March 7. He's won a trial since then and this trip first-up looks a smart play. He may get back from the wide draw, but watch for him steaming home at the finish. MARBLE GOLD (10) can mix his form, though getting back out to this trip now can see him put his best foot forward. PSYCHIC SESSION (2) can take up the running and may prove hard to run down.

RACE 4 - BIG SWOOP (5) has been knocking on the door for a while now, finishing 1.8L off the winner as favourite last time out at Bunbury. Can be prominent from the draw once again and back to 2000m isn't an issue. He's right on the cusp of victory and this looks a great chance for him to get back to winning ways. QUEEN OF JERUSALEM (2) went around in a strong race at Belmont last time out and should appreciate getting back to this easier level. He can sit a little closer than recent efforts and the booking of CJP suggests he may not be going as bad as recent performances say. Can turn his form right around. SEE YA CHAMP (3) ran over the top to win by 0.7L at Bunbury last time out, posting a strong rating in the process. The rise in weight is a niggle, but he was strong to the line last start and it wouldn't surprise to see him go back-to-back. WEIGHTMAN (11) should be fitter again now and won't be far away. HEAPS OF MOOLAH (7) may appreciate the drop in grade and is not to be discounted.

RACE 5 - CHERRY CAN RUN (7) sustained a long run from the back to get the job done at Bunbury last start and that form has already been franked. She just missed here in a photo two back and he remains right at the bottom of the weights. Has hit a purple patch of form and can continue on her winning run. LINDEN'S GOLD (1) finished out the back in a much tougher race last time out following a come from behind 0.3 length win over 1400m at Northam the start prior. Out to this trip again now and back in grade enhances his claims. He appears the main danger. DAD'S BIGHEADED (6) has been racing in much stronger company lately and gets the visors on again as he drops in trip. On the quick back-up now and Steve Parnham takes the ride. Won't be far away. STRIKING FELLA (3) can go close if he runs up to recent efforts. BEAT THE BRO (5) is better than he showed last time out and is not to be discounted.

RACE 6 - The feature of the day and LET'S GALAHVANT (2) goes on top. He saluted impressively at his first time over 2000m last start and the rise to 2200m doesn't appear to be an issue. He may be back in the run, but he won't be too far off the leader with a small field. Just needs to hold his form to be winning again. MAROCCHINO (1) will lead the field and looks to get his own way out in front being the only notable leader. He's as tough as old boots and was tough to get past in the Strickland last time out. Can dictate the speed and get back to winning ways. ADMIRATION EXPRESS (4) showed that she may be back in form last start following a few niggling issues over the past year. Out to this trip now looks ideal and she brings some different form into the mix. She can race her way into the money. BE OPTIMISTIC (5) will appreciate the extra furlong and is not to be discounted.

RACE 7 - HOSTILE TALK (3) rattled home from a long way back over 1014m here last time out and looks ready for the rise in trip now third-up into the campaign. CJP remains in the saddle and he has options from the alley. He has plenty of upside and with improvement likely, he can get the job done. SAINTLY CITY (4) can put himself on the speed from the barrier and is nicely placed with the 1.5kg claim. He is a winner over 1200m previously, so out to 1100m is no issue. Trending the right way and can put his best foot forward again. JELLY CAN RUN (2) got the job done impressively over 1214m here on June 12th when running on strongly from well back. There looks to be good pace engaged which should help his chances and he'll love any sting out of the ground. Right in the mix. LIGHTNING GOLD (8) can continue on his winning ways after a narrow victory at Kalgoorlie last start. TARARUA (6) is better than he showed last time out and the slight rise in trip should suit. Include.

RACE 8 - Even race. PROCESSIO (6) was very impressive when breaking her maiden at Pinjarra last time out, scoring by 1.2L. Out in trip doesn't appear an issue the way she closed off last time out and she should get every chance from the draw. Looks to have plenty of upside and can get the job done again. FEARLESS TALK (11) just missed at Belmont last time out and looks to have found a suitable race. She has the pace to get across from the outside alley and while she hasn't won for 577 days, she has her hoof on the till. Can go a couple better this time out. AKAI AKUMA (7) wasn't disgraced at Belmont last start when catching the eye with a strong run from the back. The rise in trip looks to suit and she's in with a winning chance with improvement likely. PLAYING QUEST (3) is better than she showed last time out and can bounce back to his prior form. PRINCE OF SANTOS (4) can improve now third-up and out in trip.
