Race 1 – Maiden (2100m)
Strip Tease is expected to get the lead here uncontested and looms as the best winning chance in a weak maiden. The last two runs have seen the horse finish inside the placings and we believe it can breakthrough in the opener.
The veteran Dunderry looks set to add another win at the 96th attempt. The nine-year-old has placed in its last two races, including missing out by two parts of a length on December 23. We think it can add a 13th win to its tally on Monday.
Dukebox George has been making progression over its last three starts and looks well placed to break through here. While it gets a tricky gate to contend with, the last-start second at Wellington was encouraging and it has the ability to deliver here at the ninth time of asking.
Tinker Dan drops in grade on Monday after a disappointing showing at benchmark 74 level hoping to recapture its best form which saw it record back-to-back victories. The horse is a very consistent type which should make some progression in 2018.
