Race 1 – Maiden Plate (1000m)

[rmOC_events_list event_ids=1177013_01]
Jindaberra looked good without winning last campaign and it won’t get a better chance than this.

The five-year-old placed at its last four starts and punters should expect it to be well-favoured in the betting market.

Race 1 tip: Jindaberra to win at

Race 2 – BM57 Handicap (2000m)

[rmOC_events_list event_ids=1177013_02]
Poet’s Dash turned around some average form with a win last start and it could have the confidence sky high now.

The Nick Olive-trained runner stays down in the weights at 56.5kg which should make it an each way chance again.

Race 2 tip: Poet’s Dash to win at

Race 3 – BM64 Handicap (1200m)

[rmOC_events_list event_ids=1177013_03]
Media Vita has notched consecutive victories this campaign and it could put three together now.

The five-year-old by Denman handles all tracks and drawing barrier two should ensure a nice run in transit.

Race 3 tip: Media Vita to win at

Race 4 – BM57 Handicap (1000m)

[rmOC_events_list event_ids=1177013_04]
Usain Brockstar isn’t the most consistent runner going around, but this is a weak rating 57 field.

It was a winner two starts back at Bong Bong and although that came in the picnic grade, it wasn’t too far behind them last start at Sapphire Coast.

Race 4 tip: Usain Brockstar to place at

Race 5 – BM58 Handicap (1400m)

[rmOC_events_list event_ids=1177013_05]
Nick Olive has a nice team engaged and Lady Marionette is another tidy chance.

The four-year-old was a last start winner and winning form should be good enough in this race.

It has drawn nicely in barrier two and the weight of 56kg helps.

Race 5 tip: Lady Marionette to win at

Race 6 – C2 Handicap (1200m)

[rmOC_events_list event_ids=1177013_06]
Cliff is on the verge of winning after two recent placings.

The gelding by Canford Cliffs went within a half-length of the winner at Sapphire Coast last start and that form should stack up well enough here.

Race 6 tip: Cliff to win at

Race 7 – Maiden Handicap (1300m)

[rmOC_events_list event_ids=1177013_07]
Dream Builder has drawn wide in barrier 15, but it has the pace needed to cross from the outside.

The four-year-old by Lonhro showed some good pace last start and Matthew Dale is a master trainer on this track.

Race 7 tip: Dream Builder to win at

Race 8 – BM68 (1400m)

[rmOC_events_list event_ids=1177013_08]
Orrstar is a last start winner which capped off some good form with a win last time out.

Has drawn well in barrier five and the eight-year-old could continue to win at this level.

Race 8 tip: Orrstar to win at
