7- RANVEER- Bought for $200k, has won two jump-outs well. Not too much to go off but has good pedigree and has showed plenty of ability.

1- THE ART OF FLYING- Booked for Sydney as well, ran well behind Sneaky Five on debut and that form has been franked. Was good latest two when third.

5- PROFITEER- Won a trial very well leading into this, good but untried pedigree, would rather watch here but has talent.

10- SUNDAY YUM CHA- Good jump-out at Sandown, followed that by a good trial in Sydney. Another who I’d rather watch on debut.

Suggested Bet: No bet

RACE 2- 1410M- BM70

1- FREE TO MOVE- Beat Endanger who went on to win at stakes level, was wide and never a chance two runs back in a deep race. Ran very well in another strong race, will find it easier here I assume and can win.

4- ROCK THE RING- Blinkers on last start and ridden a little more positively, was much better for that change in tactics. If that form maintains he is a live chance.

3- ILOVETHEGAME- Was good fresh when running behind a good one, was solid in a well rated race latest and looks ready to peak now.

2- FIELD OF ROSES- No luck on debut but has been superb in two wins since, had to via the grandstand latest and still proved too good for them.

Suggested Bet: 5 units win- Free To Move

RACE 3- 1720M- BM70

4- COOLTH- Resumed well in a race that didn’t suit, will be much better for that run. Has won second-up has runs well here at headquarters, has Persan form which reads really well.

3- CHIEF ALTONY- Was superb two back at MV when finding no luck at key stage, still good enough to finish second. Won well at Sandown and looked class there.

1- LORD BOUZERON- Looked the winner latest before finding trouble, drops in distance here but hasn’t won under 2000m since debut. Last start was over 1900m.

8- HASSLETOFF- Class win second-up, looked to have some left in the tank too. Gapped third last start and very impressive there, can peak here and figure.

Suggested Bet: No bet.

RACE 4- 2530M- BM78

5- TRALEE ROSE- Has been on another planet this campaign, three from three so far. Was super tough last start when getting the front earlier then maybe wanted, has run well at G3 level over this trip.

6- REFLECT THE STARS- Jumped up from the mile to 2400m second-up, was good there but it was a large jump. Next run was over 2600m and was super to the line, had to get way back and left too much to do.

4- MIYAKE- Rosehill run two back was plain, found form latest though. Made an early move and maintained the speed there in impressive fashion.

7- SAINT EUSTACE- Genuine stayer, worked well two runs back and then made the jump in trip when winning well latest. Has the tank to go with these.

Suggested Bet: 10 units win- Tralee Rose

RACE 5- 1000M- HCP

5- SHAMINO- Very good win last start at Sandown, 1000m is the sweet spot and gets that here. Ran a very good Caulfield Sprint before that, has the credentials to win again.

3- WILLIAM THOMAS- Was good to the line as always latest but just has too much work to do too often, has been the story of his campaign. 60kg not a help either, tends to save best for Caulfield but had excuses here latest.

1- PREZADO- Decent fresh run at MV latest, loves it here though and has the tools to strike again. 5 of 6 wins have come at headquarters.

4- GRANDVIEW AVENUE- Is in great form at the moment, cruised past Meteorite two back and then was all honours at stakes level latest. Looking for hat-trick here and has every chance.

Suggested Bet: 10 units win- Shamino

RACE 6- 1200M- BM70

10- ATEN- Won well with the gun run last start, comes here fitter now and will be better for the run. Has run well second-up in the past and boasts a record worth reading. Looks leading chance.

11- EXCELIDA- Fresh run was ok, got through it and that was enough. Huge at Ballarat last start when running days fastest last 200m with the pattern against on the day, could be ready to peak here and any improvement gives live chance.

7- EVENING GLORY- Only first-up win was on debut on heavy ground, might be looking for further but has Jamie Kah on board and is an honest runner.

14- TAN TAT HARMONY- Has run well this prep, second-up win was tough. Would be a live chance if the rain came and she could get his toe in the ground but can run well on top of the ground.

Suggested Bet: 10 units win- Aten

RACE 7- 1410M- BM84

1- BANDERSNATCH- Last campaign wasn’t good, but best is way above that. Was goo fresh when too good for them despite less than ideal run in transit. Has the ability.

10- BEEHUNTER- Had post-race issues at MV so we can forgive that run, very good behind Power Scheme at last go here which is impressive. Forgive latest.

6- LEFT HAND MAN- Was disqualified latest after saddle slipped off, won well latest when suited by pattern and race shape. Pattern key again?

5- KAZIO- Has run behind Titan Blinders last two, first time the winner was suited very well by pattern. Latest showed great fight but wasn’t able to go with winner.

Suggested Bet: No bet.

RACE 8- 1800M- BM84

17- KAPLUMPICH- Honest runner who gives his all but at times can find trouble where there is none. Three seconds in a row make him a hard bet but he is running really well and has been unlucky in a few of those.

5- STAR MISSILE- Pattern didn’t suit last time, we can totally ignore that run. Before that he was really good after a poor start. If he can put the pieces together he has a live chance.

2- BLACK SAIL- Has been superb this campaign after looking lost last prep, win at Geelong was very good when taking the rail. Always jumps well and makes own luck, third last star was behind Tavidance who won with class last week.

3- LAMBORGHINI- Had returned well this campaign, first two runs were nice, Has found trouble in more recent runs since, particularly at MV. Best is good enough here.

Suggested Bet: 10 units each-way- Kaplumpich. 5 units each-way- Black Sail.

RACE 9- 1100M- BM78

8- PAUL’S REGRET- Was far too good last start when a short priced favourite, will be better for that run and is well up to this class. Ran well last prep despite some rotten luck.

4- KALKARNI ROYALE-  Has run in some strong races this campaign and run well, was good last start when second and leaving a gap to third. Best more than good enough.

5- MACROURA- Has returned in good order and may be ready to score here, both runs back have been solid and may well have won last start with some luck. Looks ready to peak here.

6- SOPHIA’S CHOICE- Very good win fresh, had no luck latest and couldn’t get into the race. Betting?

Suggested Bet: 10 units win- Paul’s Regret.
