Race 7 No.7 HONG QIGONG
Will find this easier than his last two outings and expect him to race just off the speed. Does drop back to the 1100m which is a bit of a concern but should be to good for these on a day which looks like there is not much value around with such small fields.
Race 5 No.9 MARIA VICTORIA
Can push the the favourite here with now having that run over the trip under her belt after the quick step up from the mile to just miss last start. Drawn next to the one to beat so she can stalk it all the way and looks a nice price at $8.
Race 4 No.1 OSKASTAR
Gets the 3 kilo claim and the inside draw which is a huge advantage here, drops way in class having ran some great races in stronger benchmarks this time in. Should lead and do no work in doing so and the drop back to 1400m won’t play a factor if that is the case.
Race 6 No.5 MOLASSES
Finds himself at huge overs here on the back of last start after not handling the heavy track. Runs before that were quite good in better company and he should be running a race here at $9.
Race 3 No.7 POWER OF ATTORNEY
Heavily supported last start on debut before having no luck at all in the run from his wide gate. Will be suited by the bigger track here and Oliver sticks. Should be winning if he races up to last start and has an ounce of luck in the run.
Race 6 No.8 TIGIDIG TIGIDIG
Has been racing well without placing finishing on their heels his last couple. Will find this a lot easier than his previous few runs and look for him late down the outside. Not an overly strong BM70 and he can go close at the $9 that’s on offer.
Race 3 No.2 UTHRED
Making his North Queensland debut and has form good enough country NSW for this. Has ran second in both of his first up runs, trialled ok and if he is ready to go he should race just off them and be winning at a nice price.
Race 6 No.4 PRELUSIVE STRIKE
In a new stable with the strong combination of Trinity Bannon and Justin Stanley to ride. Has proven itself first up and has drawn to get the run of the race in this mediocre affair. Worth taking the risk at the very nice odds of $10.
