Race 6 -McDonald Johnson Lawyers F&M Maiden Handicap 1400m

Oscar Reward was run down late at Goulburn first up and she will be fitter this time. The filly was placed behind Debonairly on this track in March and she will be hard to beat in an open race.

Race 7 – Lambourne Partners Financial Planners Benchmark 60 Handicap 1200m

The speedy Final Frontier deserves a win after three close up placings in stronger fields. He was run down late on this track three weeks ago and he was less than a length away from the winner on the Beaumont Track two starts back.

Allied Power will have benefited from his first up placing at Kembla two weeks back.

The Baker was an easy first up winner at Port Macquarie recently and he can’t be underestimated.

Race 8 – Hamilton Hawks Rugby Club Class 2 Handicap 1400m

San Francisco is chasing a hat trick after two recent wins at Scone and the Beaumont Track. He should have a cosy run back off the speed and he is strong late.

On The Spot won well at Hawkesbury last start and he will carry the same weight on Saturday.

Foxy Housewife had good city form last prep and she wasn’t far away first up.
