RACE 1 POLYTRACK MAIDEN PLATE 1200M

Blazeray has his foot on the till and this is a winnable race. He was placed first up on this track on March 1 and he wasn’t far away when second at Warwick Farm on March 14. He started favourite when unplaced at Rosehill last start but there were excuses.

Baltic Success is a front runner with a good chance after a last grasp defeat at Rosehill.

African Academy is first up but had good form before a spell.

Selections:

5 BLAZERAY       

4 BALTIC SUCCESS           

2 AFRICAN ACADEMY

 

RACE 2 SMIKTECK MAIDEN PLATE 1200M

Play resumes here on the back of a good trial. The filly had two starts late last year and in her last run she was a creditable third on this track. She has the advantage of the rails barrier.

Princess Kandis went okay when placed at Hawkesbury last start.

Selections:

5 PLAY                 

3 JAWHARA       

6 PRINCESS KANDIS

 

RACE 3 MONTOMGERY HOMES MAIDEN 1400M

Chosen Heir can atone after a disappointing debut run at Scone recently. He was a short-priced favourite after impressive trial form and expect a big improvement on his home track with a light weight and ideal barrier.

Palmateer came from a long way back when a close second here last start and he is a big player in this race.

Schoolmates will be fitter second up and he was narrowly beaten on debut at Randwick in February

Selections:

6 CHOSEN HEIR                

4 PALMATEER   

1 SCHOOLMATES

 

RACE 4 CONTAINER TRADERS 2YO 900M

Rosadiblu was an odds-on favourite when unplaced in her only start at Canterbury in November. She had had a quiet trial and is speedy and has a soft draw.

Private Universe is on debut following a nice Rosehill trial a week ago.

Evalina is another first starter which trialled okay.

Selections:

9 ROSADIBLU                    

3 PRIVATE UNIVERSE     

5 EVALINA

 

RACE 5 RYAN ANSELL INVESTMENT & SOLUTIONS BENCHMARK 65 900M

Dreamy Belle is a fast filly drawn perfectly and the short course is ideal. She will only have 54½ after the claim for Louise Day and could prove difficult to run down.

Nick On The Run will get back but the long straight will be to his liking.

Libertine Miss had good form last prep and she trialled okay recently.

Selections:

5 DREAMY BELLE             

2 NICK ON THE RUN                       

6 LIBERTINE MISS

 

RACE 6 BRIAN SHEELEY MEMORIAL CLASS 1 & MAIDEN 1875M

Flying Rose steps up in this trip and if she runs the distance she could win. the mare was only 1½ lengths behind Just Dreaming in the Wyong Provincial Qualifier three starts back. She has been narrowly beaten in two subsequent starts at Newcastle and Muswellbrook.

Vindex is close to a win and goes to a suitable trip.

Ticket To Riches was nailed on the post here last start and has a place chance.

Selections:

2 FLYING ROSE

8 VINDEX

4 TICKET TO RICHES

 

RACE 7 CENTRAL CHARLESTOWN LEAGUES CLUB CLASS 2 1400M

Greater Good was impressive leading all the way to win a Maiden at this track first up on March 22. The filly was only carry 52 kilograms after the claim for Chinese apprentice Qin Yong.

Seine Net has a good record and she resumes after two trials.

Selections:

5 GREATER GOOD

2 LIFELINE PRINCESS

1 SEINE NET

 

RACE 8 SUEZ CLASS 2 1400M

Mr Plow has been set for the Queensland Derby and the 1400 at this stage is ideal. He does jump from a Maiden to a Class 2 but he will love the long straight.

Conquest is racing well and has a four kilogram claim while Thy Kingdom Come drops in class.

Selections:

4 MR PLOW

2 CONQUEST

1 THY KINGDOM COME
