Race 1 (0-25 – 1400m)
#1 AMANDLA gets the thumbs up in the opening contest of the weekend. Trained by Jean-Michel Henry, he has performed consistently since he started his career here. With Rye Joorawon on board, he can make it to the winner’s enclosure. #2 Come On Sonny comes into this race in the form of his life, having won two on the bounce. He has a genuine shot of sealing his hat-trick here. #5 Fairbanks has performed honestly since the season started. He can make his presence felt once again. #7 Captain Moss and #6 Temp The Tiger can fight it out to complete the quartet.
Top Tip: #1 AMANDLA
Danger: #2 Come On Sonny
Dark Horse: #5 Fairbanks

 

Race 2 (0-26 – 1500m)
#1 DOUBLE GAMES made it onto the podium in his last start. He is down in class this time round and is taken to do even better. #3 River Thames finished second behind stable mate Bold Phoenix in his previous run. He had shown no form prior to that, and if he can reproduce his last showing, he can go one better. #4 Tyrian was 2.6 lengths behind the winner in the 17th meeting. Dropping a class, he warrants a lot of respect. #5 Volatile Energy’s recent form does not make good reading. However, he is not prevented from making it, if he is able to dictate his own terms.
Top Tip: #1 DOUBLE GAMES
Danger: #3 River Thames
Dark Horse: #5 Volatile Energy

 

Race 3 (B.36 – 1650m)
#2 MOSCHINO got the better of the late Texas Sky in the 11th meeting, and was narrowly denied confirmation by the latter last time out. This Vincent Allet-trained horse is a class dropper and can return to winning ways here. #4 Keiko showed bags of improvement in his recent run. Second best on that occasion, he can give the favourite a run for his money, if he can repeat his last showing. #3 Paddingtons Luck is a class dropper and is entitled to show improvement, while #1 Bonnie Prince has benefited from his last run and looks the likeliest to complete the quartet.
Top Tip: #2 MOSCHINO
Danger: #4 Keiko
Dark Horse: #3 Paddingtons Luck

 

Race 4 (B.41 – 1365m)
#7 WATCH ME DAD had no issues in renewing with success in the Princess Margaret Cup meeting. Well-trained, he can confirm. #3 Ninotto was only good enough for 3rd place in his last start. He is a class dropper and is capable of mounting a bold bid. #6 Promissory produced a genuine showing in a far higher class in the 13th meeting. Back from a break, he has worked well and is a big player in this contest. #4 Borya caught the eye with his performance from a lengthy lay-off on Maiden Cup day. Down in class, he can be thereabouts.
Top Tip: #7 WATCH ME DAD
Danger: #3 Ninotto
Dark Horse: #4 Borya

 

Race 5 (B.51 – 1400m)
#4 NORTHERN SPY produced a bold run in the 16th meeting, scoring his third win of the season. That win was reinforced when the runner-up went one better on Maiden Cup day. He can double the score here. #4 Huyssteen ended his long drought in his previous run. He remains well and is capable of making it once again. #1 Mambo Rock could do nothing to prevent Trippi’s Express from running away with the win in the 17th meeting. He remains on the lookout for his first win this term, and can set the record straight here. #8 Sea Air makes his debut here. He has showed up strongly in his trials and is capable of introducing himself with a bang. #10 Clouded Hill is another newcomer. Son of Horse Chestnut, he has been well-prepared for his debut and it is worth keeping an eye on him.
Top Tip: #4 NORTHERN SPY
Danger: #1 Mambo Rock
Dark Horse: #8Sea Air

 

Race 6 – The Major Paul Hein Cup (B.66 – 1500m)
#2 FOOLS GOLD took out the second and final leg of the Three-year old series in the 12th meeting. He remains in good order and can seal his hat-trick here. #3 Iditarod Trail has taken his performances to another level this season. Excellent winner in his last start, he has every chance of confirming. #1 Vascostreettractor always gives his best and merits the greatest of respect in this, while #6 Rap Attack looks the likeliest to complete the quartet.
Top Tip: #2 FOOLS GOLD
Danger: #3 Iditarod Trail
Dark Horse: #1 Vascostreettractor

 

Race 7 (B.31 – 1450m)
Second best in his debut. #1 BOLD PHOENIX had no problems in going one better in his follow up. He has continued to progress and is taken to confirm. #2 Sacred Night struck from the ace in his last start. He remains in good nick and his chances of confirming must not be scoffed at. #5 Skip The Red’s last run must be ignored completely, as he was stuck three-wide throughout. Before that, he returned to the winner’s enclosure and he merits consideration in this contest. #4 Kalgoorlie was last seen taking victory in the 5th meeting. Back from a long absence, he has shown no problems at track work and can be right in the mix. For the lower placings, #3 Stockbridge and #7 Minnesota Dream are worthy of consideration.
Top Tip: #1 BOLD PHOENIX
Danger: #2 Sacred Night
Dark Horse: #4 Kalgoorlie

 

Race 8 (0-20 – 1450m)
#1 MANOLETE came up short once again last Saturday. Entered again, it won’t be a surprise if he breaks the ice once and for all. #5 Italian Way was second best last time out. He can go one better only if he repeats his last showing. #8 New Golden Age will appreciate running over the slightly longer trip. He has been drawn perfectly and merits serious consideration here. #4 Head Of The Pack and #9 Kimberley can fight it out to complete the quartet.
Top Tip: #1 MANOLETE
Danger: #5 Italian Way
Dark Horse: #8 New Golden Age
