Race 1

Larry says, "A tough one early for punters with three of the fancies drawn the car park, while a few Class droppers who look out of form likley to grow a proverbial leg back in Class 5. Of these who have drawn wide, two in particular can go forward and it may be a case of either DRAGON GOLD (drawn 11) or SUN EMPIRE (jumps from 12) who gets the favours out front. And while DRAGON GOLD just missed last start in a similar affair and SUN EMPIRE capitulated after leading at his most recent run, the latter's efforts in better company prior to that suggests there is nothing between the two. RAFALE is also an improver dropping to Class 5 but he has also drawn badly so will need luck in running with best work expected late. Hopefully with a cracking early pace expected, Vlad Duric gets the favours from gate 1 on PRINCE FERDINAND who can win back in this Company. Betting Strategy - SUN EMPIRE each-way."

Race 2

Larry says, "The wise men will be waiting to see what the tote tells us closer to start time in this Restricted Maiden given a few newcomers look handy enough to consider and some of the raced brigade will have a say if ridden forward on the E Course. And yes, the bias of the track will play a part and it may be a case of whoever is leading with a couple of furlongs to go is the one to beat. CENTENARY DIAMOND - a raced maiden from Dubai - certainly trials well enough locally to think he can play a forward role in this race after drawing gate 2 with M Rodd a factor. Of the other newcomers, REVOLUTION and QUADCOPTER have also trialled well enough to consider but gates 14 and 13 respectively could test. Of those we have seen, NADEEM SAPPHIRE will find this easier than the Golden Horseshoe and has shown he can go forward so must be considered while KING ZOUSTAR with blinkers added and SILVER JOY must also be considered. Betting Strategy - Market watch the order of the day - NADEEM SAPPHIRE each-way."

Race 3

Larry says, "This race shapes as a proverbial "charge of the light brigade" given the E Course will suit on-pace runners and six of the fancies will all be going forward early. There are three last start winners in the field too and while MINGS MAN is tested at this level and NOVA CLASSIC will find gate 11 a tough ask, FORESTO broke his maiden in fine style last start and will be thereabouts throughout. But oddly, two horses with zeros in the formbook from their respective last starts appeal. DREAMWEAVER can lead, has drawn gate 1 and must be a huge show on the back of a very slick trial while ELITE BEAST has more than one zero to his name of late but he drops significantly in grade and would give this a shake on his day is he goes forward. Of the rest that can win, HYDE PARK and MR MOSA both be prominent throughout and have to be seriously considered. Betting Strategy - DREAMWEAVER win, saver on ELITE BEAST."

Race 4

Larry says, "While LARSON could lead and play a big part if he gets a soft run out front, this does looks a race in two between INTROIT and ZULU WARRIOR. And it may be a toss up between the two (with a longer look on the day) as both will go forward and be in the winning mix. ZULU WARRIOR in particular kicked clear over 1400m last start (where LARSON led) and given a handy type in Turf Princess beat him on that occasion, he get his chance with D Moor to ride. INTROIT will also race handy and showed more than enough last start with blinkers added at his first start for Lee Freedman to think he is right on ZULU WARRIORS tail throughout and must go close. As mentioned LARSON could give a sight at odds and while there are some handy enough types likely to be doing best work late, it may be WALTERS BAY with full blinkers from gate 1 that runs a prominent race at value. Betting Strategy - INTROIT, ZULU WARRIOR swinger, forecast."

Race 5

Larry says, "A cracking Class 3 Poly sprint with some experienced horses up against a couple of very progressive types suggesting the tote will again be a good guide. The up-and-comers will probably garner most of the punters attention given EYE GUY and PETITE VOIX are both gunning for hat tricks of wins. Of the two, EYE GUY backed up his impressive maiden win with another strong performance in what looked good Class 4 company and he can go on with the job. PETITE VOIX took a while to break her maiden status but the fact she backed up that comfortable win with an equally commanding performance suggests she gives a sight. Of the regular Class 3 performers, ANONYMOUS could be the one to beat given he gets blinkers back and will enjoy the Poly while SPLINTER and QUEEN ROULETTE are in the each-way mix. Given the scorching early pace expected, RIVER GOLDEN will work home strongly so keep safe. Betting Strategy - RIVER GOLDEN each-way."

Race 6

Larry says, "What a race and what a sub-plot with the exciting TESORO PRIVADO - formerly with Ricky Le Grange - up against the Guineas runner-up, KING LOUIS, who will be saddled by Le Grange. And while horses move stables regularly, it's tough to lose a good one (or three) so Le Grange will be hoping to get the chocolates in this race, which may well be a two-horse battle. Who wins? TESORO PRIVADO won very well last start and will race on the pace and a 4kg claim looks a smart move. In saying that, KING LOIUS - fresh after a huge run in the Guineas - gets blinkers and Barend Vorster will have the now 4YO right in the firing line come the straight. It's never a two horse race at this level and there will be value about on the others so keep the likes of SOLARIS SPECTRUM and SUPERNOVA (to name just two) safe at odds. Betting Strategy - TESORO PRIVADO, KING LOUIS forecast, SOLARIS SPECTRUM small look at odds."

Race 7

Larry says, "A tough race for form analysts given one of the fancies - CAPTAIN JAMIE - is on a five day let-up after leading over 1400m on the turf last Sunday and another - ANCIENT WARRIOR - pulled up lame last start but wins a race like this when right. The 6YO also returned with debris in his trachea on that occasion and was due prior so he has to be considered while CAPTAIN JAMIE has speed, handles the Poly and might be better than a few of these. Not many other jump off the page to win although RED DAWN ran on well on the turf last start and is better suited back on the Poly while MADE IN CHINA won well enough first up in Class 4 to think he is worth following this campaign. Go as wide as possible in exotics including STAR GENIUS at likely long odds. Betting Strategy - RED DAWN each-way."

Race 8

Larry says, "An open race to finish the card and made tough for punters with three handy maidens - LUCKY HADA, MOLINEUX and BEBOP - in this Class 4 (non premier) field. Of that trio, MOLINEUX ran on well on the E Course last start and if Duric can make use of gate 3, he can win while LUCKY HADA had excuses on debut and ran on well enough to follow if he can get off to a better start. BEBOP has drawn wide but can also go forward and must be considered. Of those who have won a race, KEY SUCCESS had been disappointing of late but showed enough with blinkers added last start to win this while SMOOTH OPERATOR broke his maiden last start and has subsequently trialled well so he must be considered. Betting Strategy - KEY SUCCESS win."
