RACE 1 - The well-named CLUBHOUSE (5) (by Spieth) has placed at three of his past four outings and looks to be nearing a maiden victory. Strikes a very winnable contest and can finally shed the maiden tag. AMONG US (1) has had a few chances but only narrowly went down here last time out and will be rock-hard fit for this. Looms as the main danger. HELLUVA SOIREE (13) has placed at her past couple and is improving with racing. Top-three conveyance. FIRST TO MARS (20) is drawn to get all the favours from the inside alley and will find this easier than recent efforts. In the mix. LOOK AT ROSA (10) is usually thereabouts and is one for the multiples.

RACE 2 - SCUD (9) wasn't disgraced in town at the latest effort and will find this assignment much more to her liking. Is one from one over this track and trip and should be right there when the whips are cracking. SUPER DUCK (3) is an honest conveyance who boasts a win over this course and distance and gets 2kg off with the claim. Rates a serious contender. BOSTON CITY (5) broke through here last time out and will have derived a bunch of confidence from that victory. Draws the inside alley and is sure to play a major role in the outcome. DISCERNING (10) is having her first run for the new stable and any market support should be noted. CELESTIAL HARBOUR (6) has placed around this circuit and may earn some minor money with any luck in running.

RACE 3 - HOLLYWOOD EPIC (1) is unlucky to still be a maiden with two runner-up finishes to start the career and this is not an overly strong affair. Guthmann-Chester sticks in the irons and looks nicely placed to break the maiden status here. The well-related WHATTA WHITT (12) (half to G3 winner and G2 placed Lovemelikearock) strips fitter third-up from the spell, draws low and gets in well at the weights with the claim. Ticks a few boxes. POW NOW (8) disappointed first-up but go on the solid second before the spell. Can bounce right back to form now. A SIP FOR SLIPPY (7) should appreciate the step-up to 1200m and may trouble the judge from the favourable draw. JUST NEVER ENOUGH (9) next in line in a race with only a handful of chances.

RACE 4 - DUN WITH ROSES (1) has been right there in all four starts since joining the new stable including placing over this distance range at Toowoomba last time out. Only needs some luck navigating from the sticky draw to play a major role in the outcome. CHOCKABLOCK (3) has hit the frame in all four outings this preparation and draws low with the claim. Sure to prove tough to hold out. NEWSBEAT (4) put in a career best effort last time and gets Collett in the saddle. Top-three contender with natural improvement. Former Victorian BAUHAUS (2) showed glimpses of ability down south and may run a race while fresh. SUNFYRE (11) rounds out the selections.

RACE 5 - LIVINGSTONES (4) has a handy record over this journey with a win and three placings from eight attempts and is drawn to get a cosy run in transit from gate two. Gets 2kg weight relief with the claim and should be right there at the business end. TEE AMICI (7) wasn't too far off them at Kilcoy last time out and will be rock-hard fit for this. Well placed here and can play a prominent role in the finish. ALPINE LADY (3) has hit a bit of form of late and Cormack sticks in the stirrups. In the mix. SPIRIT OF BEANS (1) grows a leg for Tilley who has three wins from just four steers. Can run a race while fresh. PERSIAN FRONT (14) has placed over this track and trip and looks one for the exotics players.

RACE 6 - PALATIAL PRINCE (1) has hit the top-four in all four runs this campaign and looks to be nearing another victory. Will be at peak fitness now and shapes as the hardest to toss. IMPERIONESS (6) was a touch plain at the latest effort but the form prior was full of merit. Worth another chance. COLD ONE (2) resumes here but revved up for this with a recent Gold Coast trial placing. Can run a race while fresh. MISHANI PHAROAH (15) has placed over this track and trip and gets in very light with the claim. A big run would not surprise. DUCHESS OF MILAN (10) next in line.

RACE 7 - IT'SMEMARIO (2) got the chocolates at Toowoomba last time out and will have derived some confidence from that victory. Winning hoop Zechner stays on board and should prove tough to hold out again. MISS MIRIAM (7) broke the maiden status at Ipswich at the latest effort and must be respected from the Bruce camp. Can go back-to-back. ADIELLA (3) hasn't done much wrong with two wins and a placing from just three outings to commence the career and cannot be discounted. JENNI MOREESE (9) is a last-start winner who only needs some luck from the carpark draw to feature in the finish. EPIC FLASH (4) best of the rest.

RACE 8 - LADY WAIRUA (16) doesn't win out of turn but has been right in the mix in recent outings and will strip fitter second-up from the spell. Should appreciate the extra furlong here and rates as the one they all have to catch. STORMTROOPER (5) is a two-time winner around this circuit and has been racing in a rich vein of form of late. Has to be considered. GIDGET (8) is one from one over this course and distance and gets some weight relief with the 2kg claim. Top-three credentials. HUSSON'S REVENGE (2) has placed around this circuit and is another to get some weight relief. In the mix. PIANIST (12) is usually thereabouts and looks one for the exotics players.

RACE 9 - TUQIRI (6) got the maiden out of the way last time out at the Gold Coast and looks the runner in this field with the most upside. No reason why he cannot go back-to-back against this line-up. GAELIC THUNDER (7) is another to shed the maiden tag last start and the extra furlong here looks ideal. Evans sticks in the saddle and looms as the main danger. The penny has dropped for SHOTGUN SIXTYFOUR (5) who has strung two wins together on the bounce. Gets 2kg off and it's hard to ignore mares in form. LYNCHED (21) has placed five of six this preparation including one over this track and trip. In the mix. NEW MAHER (1) next in line from the favourable draw.
