Race 1 – Class 3 Handicap (1000m)
Atacama Sky returned in good order at Ascot on February 14 and should improve on that performance. The horse finished just a head away behind Imperial Venus and after previously finishing inside the placings two from three attempts, Atacama Sky should be right in the mix.
Race 1 tip: Atacama Sky to win ($1.70 at William Hill)
Race 2 – Rs0ly (1000m)
Dashing Affair won narrowly upon resumption on February 7 and should only improve on that run. The horse will not have any competition for the front from barrier one and should lead from start to finish.
Race 2 tip: Dashing Affair to win ($1.85 at Neds)
Race 3 – Class 1 Handicap (1200m)
Double The Pro has finished inside the top-two in three-straight races and will be hard to hold out here. The horse was around the mark last-start at this level and will be highly competitive once again.
Race 3 tip: Double The Pro to win ($5 at Sportsbet)
Race 4 – Rs0ly (2200m)
Five Degrees breakthrough for a sensational one and three parts of a length win on February 4 and looks poised to continue on from here. It is a step-up in class but the strength of the last-start win suggests to us it can go on with it.
Race 4 tip: Five Degrees to win ($4.40 at Sportsbet)
Race 5 – Rs0ly (1800m)
Fair Sonari has one two of the last three races and is right in the mix to do it once again. The last-start win was just under two lengths and that form looks as good as any in this field.
Race 5 tip: Fair Sonari to win ($3.20 at William Hill)
Race 6 – Class 3 Handicap (1800m)
Friar Fox simply wins this. The horse won well last-start by a length and despite the wide barrier it is the clear-cut elect to beat.
Race 6 tip: Friar Fox to win ($2.05 at William Hill)
Race 7 – Rs0ly (1500m)
Net Profit has been ordinary across its last two runs but the class is there. Only once over three attempts has it missed a placing third-up, and after two runs in Perth it should be ready to peak. Net Profit is a great each way hope.
Race 7 tip: Net Profit to win ($81 at Crownbet)
Race 8 – Class 1 (1600m)
Mississippi Delta was great first-up and will be hard to beat here. The horse will be much fitter for the resuming run and will be the elect to beat.
Race 8 tip: Mississippi Delta to win ($5.50 at Ladbrokes)
