RACE 1. (12:05) TAB HIGHWAY PLATE (PLATE 3) 1600M
Hasn’t Jim Jarvis done a remarkable job with Evopex since the horse has come to his stable? Evopex is the winner of last two at Coffs Harbour. With a record that features two out of three wins on dry grounds, don’t dismiss this one. Although there is still plenty of room for improvement, this is the one to beat. He is on at $4.80 – BET NOW
RACE 2. (12:40) BOB INGHAM HANDICAP (88) 2400M
A bit of nothing race but I’ll go with 9 Screamarr. With horses generally taking their turns at winning these races, he gets his chance. He Ran over 2000m at Rosehill three weeks back and finished off quite well in restricted room to run third to impressive winner Raqeeq.
Remains down in the weights and he’s racing as if 2400m will be ideal. He is on at $11.00 – BET NOW
RACE 3. (13:15) FORUM HANDICAP (78) 1000M
This looks a lovely race for the James Cummings trained Almanzora. Punters were quite keen when she resumed at the Canterbury midweeks. But if you were watching, it was a total nightmare to behold. Back to last, badly held up and never looked to recover until the end. It was a race she should have won.
Therefore, here is her chance to bounce back. Hopefully, she has better luck in running. She is on at $2.40 – BET NOW
RACE 4. (13:50) SILVER SHADOW STAKES 1200M
The standout pick for this one is Oohood, first-up after 19 week spell and just missed as favourite last start in the Sires’ Produce Stakes, standout top pick. She is on at $2.35 – BET NOW
RACE 5. (14:25) UP AND COMING STAKES 1300M
Smart Elissim is unbeaten in both runs and dropping 5kg from last run will take the power of beating. Very keen to see a performance from this one. He has had a bit of a boom on him since day one. Always dishing out promising performances.
From a hugely successful debut in a Sale maiden to the Sandown performance where he took on three rivals in a sit/sprint and proved too good for a good horse in Fighting Harada. He really should measure up and is on at $5.00 – BET NOW
RACE 6. (15:00) WINX STAKES 1400M
Winx needs no introduction and does she really need explaining? She will be attempting a record breaking 26 wins on the trot, kicking off a campaign honing in on a fourth consecutive Cox Plate and off her trials, she seems to be thriving in it all. She’s looking better each step of the way – which is quite a scary thought. She wins while you marvel at how she does it. She is on at $1.16 – BET NOW

RACE 7. (15:40) SHOW COUNTY QUALITY 1200M
Le Romain is the outright pick here as long as he is anywhere near right, he’ll be winning this. He is the best in the race by an absolute mile boasting fabulous stats at Randwick, 1200m and the Randwick 1200m.
This will be his first race since since the Kingsford Smith Cup where he ran a narrow second to Impending in a thrilling finish. Two trials leading in have been great and he just has class on these. He is in at $2.60 – BET NOW
RACE 8. (16:20) TOY SHOW QUALITY 1300M
Nettoyer resumes after a spell of 15 weeks and trial win in the 105 days since last race adds confidence, well placed. Coming in at $8.00 – BET NOW
RACE 9. (17:00) NICHOLAS MORAITIS HANDICAP (89) 1400M
The Queenslanders have done very well in Sydney recently and that trend can continue via Shogun Sun who is racing quite well this prep for the Kelly Schweida team. Shogun Sun, coming off a win at Doomben and two wins from six attempts this campaign, has solid claims.
His win at Doomben was outstanding given those on speed were seriously advantaged and the low flying Natch was in front, but he wore that horse down for a fab win. He is on at $4.20 – BET NOW
