RACE 1 - EVERYBODY RISE (8) is back in grade here after resuming for second prep with a fast finishing second over 1150m at Randwick Kensington on June 12. Strips fitter now and will relish stretching out to the 1300m. Go close. CAPTAIN EAGLE (1) solid debut as fav when stalking the speed for a narrow second over 1200m at Kembla Grange on June 20. Further improved now and shouldn't be a Maiden for long. LONE FORCE (5) showed a ton of ability in his first prep and is expected to have strengthened over the break. Returns from a seven-month spell with two solid trials in readiness for this. Gelded over the break and a forward showing is anticipated. STRONG TRADE (10) resumes for his second prep. Made up good ground late on debut when fifth over 1100m at Warwick Farm on March 6. Had two quiet trials in readiness and sure to be strong late.

RACE 2 - JAWHARAT DUBAI (4) eight-start maiden who looks close to getting off the mark. Kept fresh for this after finishing second as a $1.60 fav over 1400m at Randwick Kensington on June 12. Maps to get the right run and has a fitness edge over most of these. FUGITIVA (3) returned good figures on resumption when charging late to secure third over 1200m at Kembla Grange on June 20. Expected to play a leading role. TOKYO LADY (11) fitter after two runs back and gets in light with the 2kg claim here. Stuck on well in the heavy conditions when fifth at Newcastle on June 22. Expected to figure prominently. ASTERIDE (8) will find this more to her liking after resuming with a plugging fifth over 1150m at Randwick Kensington on June 12. Fitter now and can sneak into the minor money.

RACE 3 - TENNIEL (6) improving Tarzino filly from the Neasham camp who got out to her right distance range when a dominant on-pace winner over 2000m at Wyong on June 27. No reason she can't win again. PRINCE OF ARENDELL (3) only has the one win from 14 starts and should be nearing his top. Taken to the front and found wanting late when third over 2145m at Goulburn on June 21. Has each-way prospects. TIETAR (7) returns from a 33-day let-up and back in grade for this after finishing sixth over 2000m at Randwick in BM72 grade on June 8. Improving type who can play a leading role today. GIRL WITH BALLOON (4) much better performance third-up when a plugging fifth over 2000m at Wyong on June 27. Expecting more here and must go into the exotics.

RACE 4 - EXCEED THE SKY (10) returned from a lengthy break with a tough on-pace second over 1100m here on June 25. Should handle the going and prove hard to hold out from the good gate. THE GREY (3) came out fast from the inside gate on debut before being overhauled late when a narrow second over 1100m at Wyong on June 13. Trained on the track and Wadick rides again despite drawing out. Has the early speed to get across and figure prominently. PARALIA (5) gelding by Pride Of Dubai out of a Pierro mare on debut for the Lees yard. Has looked sharp in two recent trials and can make his presence felt. ART'S ALIVE (6) raced in stronger company last time in and returns from a four-and-a-half month break. Looked to have plenty up her sleeve in two recent Rosehill trials and trained locally. Has the ability to take this out.

RACE 5 - WEBEJAMIN (12) finished runner-up at both career starts and finds her right race today. Charged late from the wide gate when a nose second over 1300m here on June 18. Extra trip is in her favour and can race closer from the low draw. Go close. CEREMONIOUS (3) comes up from Victoria after showing a ton of potential in all five runs last time in. Fitted with two quiet trials and the stable has tinkered with the gear. Can easily take this out from the good gate first-up. INCEPTION (13) much improved showing at second race start when sitting on the speed for a fighting third over 1400m here on June 25. Blinkers go on and will be in this for a long way. MEGA FIGHT (4) disappointed as fav when missing the start before warming up late when second over 1500m here on June 25. Hard fit now and no excuses today.

RACE 6 - CHARTWELL (2) returned in a strong form race when a plugging fifth behind IRON MAN over 1250m at Canterbury in BM72 grade on June 19. This looks much easier and improvement is expected with the claim and good draw. LADY SHENANIGANS (7) holding his form well and looks close to another victory. Sat just off the good tempo when a sound second over 1000m at this track on June 25. Fitter now and expected to go close again.

Fitted with two soft trials and has the ability to sprint well fresh from the inside gate. TULLA PARK (1) a month between runs when returned to form with an encouraging second over 1000m at Wagga on June 17. Beany Panya gets the best out of him and he can sneak into the minor money.

RACE 7 - SETOMBE (6) started heavily in the red, ($1.70 fav) when a disappointing seventh over 1300m at Warwick Farm on June 26. Previous two runs were sound and can return to form in this easier contest over her preferred trip. TO THE EXTREME (1) lightly raced filly from the Ron Quinton yard with a ton of upside. Nice return with the 59kg when a plugging third over 1000m at Kembla Grange on June 20. Broke her Maiden status last time in second-up. Key runner. IMPACTFULL MISS (8) two runs back have been promising and a win looks imminent. Showed plenty of fight to the line when a narrow fourth over 1000m at Wyong two weeks ago. Handles all conditions and maps well again. NIGHTINGALE (5) is back for her third prep and has plenty of potential. Fitted with two searching trials and expected to come out hard and play a leading role.

RACE 8 - SHADOW EXPRESS (9) broke through for his maiden victory over 1500m at this track on June 18. Finds a fairly weak C1 today and can win again from the good gate. IRISH BLISS (3) returns from a 30-day let-up and is racing in career-best form. Got off the mark two-back before powering home late when a gritty second over 1700m at Scone in BM66 class on June 11. Blinkers go on and can play a leading role again. COASTAL GROOVE (7) sat on the speed in the heavy (10) conditions when a fighting second over 1600m at Scone on July 2. Lloyd sticks and will prove hard to hold out late. ANOTHER FORTUNE (8) on the quick back-up when scoring a well-deserved Maiden victory over today's track and trip on June 25. Confidence is high and can take a hand in the finish again.
