Race 1. (12:33) Access Insulation Maiden (1000m)
#2 – Heritage Sash – Bet Now
Toby Edmonds lines up the three-year-old gelding which has looked good in two starts to date.
The three-year-old placed on debut at Ipswich before bettering that run with a second placing at Grafton. There was plenty of merit in that run and there’s improvement to come.
Prepared for this with a recent trial and he could run well here.
Race 2. (13:08) Wimmers Soft Drinks Handicap (1000m)
#1 – Guard Of Honour – Bet Now
The Kris Lees-trained runner is looking to bounce back after running 10th last start but that came at Randwick against harder opposition.
He’s a five-year-old which has won five of his 23 starts and although he hasn’t won for awhile now, he showed his class when placing at Eagle Farm and then Scone.
Gets the inside draw here and that should see him land closer to the pace and kick strongly.
Race 3. (13:43) TAB Handicap (1000m)
#1 – Betaima – Bet Now
Betaima is a two-time winner which has the experience and class to win here. The Edmonds-trained runner has run her last two races in open class and drops back nicely for this.
Her most recent win came at Doomben in December last year but she has run behind the likes of Exhilarates and Perudo since.
Unlikely to be running at long odds here and she could start as the odds-on favourite.
Race 4. (14:18) Butler McDermott Lawyers BM70 (1600m)
#6 – Great Powers – Bet Now
Les Ross lines up the four-year-old mare which has been around the mark throughout her career.
The daughter of Red Element finished a close second at Ipswich last time out and although she hasn’t won since April, that was a solid effort.
54.5kg on her back is ideal and she could finish over the top of them.
Race 5. (14:53) XXXX Gold Maiden (1800m)
#1 – Netherlands – Bet Now
Netherlands has been touch to watch this season, especially for punters that keep taking the shorts, but we’re loading up again.
The Steven O’dea-trained runner has plenty of ability but continues to find a checkered passage in the straight. With clean running throughout, he’s going to be a big chance in this.
Punters should get slightly better odds than bookmakers have been offering of late.
Race 6. (15:28) Yalumba Wines C3 Handicap (1000m)
#4 – Wirnpa – Bet Now
Wirnpa hasn’t won for some time now but he never runs a bad race and could offer some value in this.
The five-year-old has finished in the money in nine of his 19 starts and comes into this with a handy effort for fourth. The margin was only 1.4 lengths and he made up good ground in the straight.
Having experienced rider Jim Byrne in the saddle is ideal for punters and the son of Exceed And Excel should go close here.
Race 7. (16:03) Oaks Hotels BM70 (1400m)
#3 – Exdream – Bet Now
Exdream is a Lees-trained runner which has two wins from six starts and should accumulate more wins throughout his career.
He was a winner two back at Cessnock before running fourth at Ipswich last start. He should be better for that run and we’re putting that down to second-up syndrome.
56.5kg on the back and jumping from barrier four suits.
Race 8. (16:38) Parklands Tavern BM65 (1200m)
#2 – Charway – Bet Now
Charway was a winner second-up last campaign and that’s going to bode well for this.
The O’dea-trained runner has finished in the money in five of her eight career starts and given the quality of this field, she should be around the mark again.
Likely to bet at each-way odds.
