Race 3, No. 11 AMANGIRI
Brave in defeat last start after coming across from the outside gate and setting a genuine tempo. Was a sitting target for the rest of the field on that occasion and she bypassed the Oaks last week for this easier option. She will run out a solid 2000m today as she draws well to do no work as she will get to the front and dictate her own terms, gets back on top of the ground is a bonus.
Race 4, No. 8 ASHARANI
Hasn't missed a beat this campaign winning both her races in good style. Got home hard from worse than midfield last start and the 1400m looks ideal. In the powerful Kris Lees stable with Avdulla sticking with her the $12 that's on offer looks juicy.
A Great comeback story by Samantha Clenton who has just recently return from serious injuries after 2 and half years off after they said she will never ride again. She has ridden 7 winners from just 30 rides since her return including a midweek metro winner. She is in the first two races and I wish her all the best.
Race 5, No. 9 OUR LIBRETTO
Brings some good form from down South and she stays on the minimum with Frosty Lane wasting to ride her. Has had good support after opening up $6.50 has been crunched into $5.
Leg 1: 1,9
Leg 2: 2,3,6,12
Leg 3: 2
Leg 4: Field

Race 1: 5-3-9-1. Has been freshened up since her first up win and will get the run of the race.
Race 2: 2-3-5-12. Huge drop in class here after not handling the wet in the G1 Galaxy.
Race 3: 11-6-2-1. Best see above.
Race 4: 8-9-5-4. Value see above.
Race 5: 3-9-5-6. Draws well in 2 and is not the worse 20/1 pop going around. Is 2nd up and that's when he races best winning 3 from 4.
Race 6: 9-1-2-4. Hasn't had the best of luck since going up North and the mile along with the good track is right up her alley.
Race 7: 2-3-6-12. Deserves a Group 1. Best of luck Osborne.
Race 8: 2-9-10-1. Best horse in the race and comes in well with the set weights and penalties. Flies fresh winning 4 from 7.
Race 9: 14-8-3-4. Very tough and even race to finish off the carnival.
