Race 1

Larry says, "A Class 5 where a few handy enough Class droppers who should gain the punters attention join the usual suspects. Two in particular in MILLION ROUND and MILITARY MIGHT win without surprising after showing enough in Class 4 to follow. MILLION ROUND won four starts back in a similar affair to this and had excuses last start not to finish closer. He has drawn wide but Woodworth should find a midfield position with best work expected late. MILITARY MIGHT gets Duric and while his best form (and only win) was on the turf, he has shown enough recently in Class 4 on the Poly to give this a shake. KUBERA'S CHIEF and GOLDEN STATES the two to follow on recent Class 5 form with the former getting the services of the newly licensed Alysha Collett. Others to watch include the maiden PACIFIC PERAL with M Rodd a factor. Betting Strategy - MILLION ROUND each-way."

Race 2

Larry says, "With plenty of unknowns in this maiden field, the tote will be a terrific guide on the night. But as it stands three horses with race form under their belts in KISS YOUR SONG, D'GREAT STAR and BURKAAN all appeal. And while KISS YOUR SONG looks due - perhaps overdue - and can win from gate 4 with support likely, the 2YO BURKAAN might be the one to catch with just 49kg on his back. His debut against his own age group was solid and an 8kg swing in the weights against the majority of this field has to be a factor. There are four newcomers in the field and while all look to have some hope on debut, CLARTON TREASURE looked very comfortable at his Official Trials and looks the pick of that bunch. Betting Strategy - BURKAAN each-way, saver on CLARTON TREASURE."

Race 3

Larry says, "Not an overly strong Class 4 (non-premier) Poly sprint, which gives the promising NOVA VOCAL a big show to knock in his second win at just start three. The 3YO Irish-bred gelding won very well on debut and was stiff not to remain unbeaten when just missing in Novice Company at start two. Blinkers go on and while awkwardly drawn for this, he looks better than Class 4 and hard to beat. The horses with recent form on the board in good Class 4 company include SPECIAL RAIN who has also drawn wide while RUM N RAISONS is also due with best work expected late. There is some value about elsewhere with OCEAN MASTER appreciating gate 4 and SUN SEEKER some hope on winning Class 5 form. Betting Strategy - NOVA VOCAL win."

Race 4

Larry says, "The first leg of the Golden Horseshoe Series and while there may be some handy newcomers who are ready to fire at their respective debuts, the only two horses with race form under their belts - DRONE and GIANT KILLING - are the two to watch. Obviously DRONE impressed when winning on debut and the speedster will be hard to run down with race fitness under his belt. In saying that, GIANT KILLING ran on super late in that race to keep him honest and a 2kg pull in the weights can't hurt. The proverbial blanket goes over the likes of GOOD LUCK CHARM, JUPITER DRAGON, KING ZOUSTAR, MAKKEM LAD, MY BIG BOSS, PENNYWISE, STREETWISE and the filly SCOOBY DOOBY DOO who have all trialled well enough to consider with the market a very good guide. Betting Strategy - watch market on the newcomers but DRONE very hard to beat."

Race 5

Larry says, "A cracking race - probably the best on the card - and with plenty of winning chances there is sure to be some value about for astute punters. The form line to follow may be through the Three-Year-Old Challenge with MR CLINT and MR HANKS both opting to have a crack at Open Company to get back to winning form. Of the two, MR CLINT has the better form on the board from those two races and he will be flying late in this field with a tongue-tie added. MR HANKS had horror barriers to contend with in both legs and happy to think he has more to offer after finally drawing a fair alley. Plenty of others that can win including the impressive LIM'S MAGIC who resumes with some nice trials under his belt while THE WIND looked to have something in hand last start and could show his best from gate 2. MR EXCHEQUER, DARCI CHARMER, LIM'S KNIGHT and SUPERNOVA (at odds) all can figure. Betting Strategy - each way MR HANKS and THE WIND both at value. "

Race 6

Larry says, "A big field heads to the mile start for this Maiden and FORESTO on the back on five straight placings looks the obvious pick. The 3YO just missed two starts back before having everything covered bar the winner last start over this trip on the Poly. Vlad Duric stays on and from gate 5, he gets his chance. But form from Class 4 races will more than hold up here and ACE HARBOUR could be the big danger. The 4YO English-bred gelding did it tough last start and wasn't a mile away and he could be hard to beat back in a maiden from gate 2. PENNSYLVANIA and NEW SENSATION also appreciate maiden company with the latter the improver over the mile with blinkers back on. RACE TO FAME another that can also win with Bruce Marsh opting for a 4kg claimer. Betting Strategy - ACE HARBOUR win."

Race 7

Larry says, "Four last start winners and another four or so 'black-bookers' makes this a race with just too many winning options to be confident, so value will be the key. Of the last start winners, both LETTIGO and METTLESOME won well enough in this company to follow but the pair have drawn in gates 14 and 13 respectively so luck will play a part. CASEY and SWIFT EMBRACE won in maiden company last start and while they will be competitive, this is a strong Class 4 so they will need to improve again to win. The horses that look suited to show their best include JUSTICE LASS and JACKS SECRET both stepping up to a more suitable trip while PIONEER STEP always goes very well for V Duric and NORTHERN KNIGHT is better than what he showed last start. Betting Strategy - JUSTICE LASS win, saver on JACKS SECRET."

Race 8

Larry says, "The second division of the Class 3's over 1400m and this one looks as tough as the first one to find the winner. In fact you can make a strong case for at least eight of the capacity field and again, there has to be value to found on the night. Two very progressive types down in the weights in SATELLITE WINNER and SUPER DYNASTY appeal. SATELLITE WINNER grew wings late last start suggesting he is more than up to winning in this Company while SUPER DYNASTY won handsomely at his second start in Singapore and can go on with the job. Of the others to consider, LIM'S ROYAL and STAR GENIUS are ready to win but have both drawn awkwardly (although Rodd and Duric respectively helps their cause) while the top weight, LUCKY STRIDE, has his foot on the till and wins without surprising. BLACK JADE, CHOCOLATS and LIM'S DASHING just three others to follow. Betting Strategy - SATELLITE WINNER each-way. "

APP CC WONG-1 (N/A) J SAIMEE (N/A) 15 65 53.0 ** Gate a concern but best work late last start at odds suggests he is worth a look with blinkers added over recent winning trip.

Race 9

Larry says, "While the in-form ARR FLAIR probably starts favourite and goes very close to winning, five or so Class droppers make the form very interesting in the lucky last. And the best of those may be ALAMOSA EXPRESS who not only drops to Class 4 after four starts in better company since arriving from NZ, but gets Duric and a tongue tie and can win off the back of an eye-catching effort last start. YAYA PAPAYA will also find this easier than 3YO Group level and can improve back on is preferred surface while last start Class 4 winner, COUNTRY BOSS, must also be respected. Plenty of others to watch including FAREES who is always a show in races like this. Betting Strategy - ALAMOSA EXPRESS win."
