Race 1 – Maiden Handicap (1250m)


Ocean Express turned around a poor debut run with a second placing last start.

The money has come for the Tim Martin-trained runner and we’re expecting a solid effort.

Race 1 tip: Ocean Express to win ($2.60) at CrownBet.com.au

Race 2 – Maiden Handicap (1000m)


Jack’s Bar looked better than average in two runs last preparation, placing in both before being sent out for a spell.

Kris Lees lines up the three-year-old which could break through here.

Race 2 tip: Jack’s Bar to win ($2.25) at Neds.com.au

Race 3 – BM55 Handicap (1000m)


Our Brother George was a solid winner on debut and it looks a chance of remaining unbeaten here.

The Robert Lane-trained runner has been respected by bookmakers and the inside draw should see it fighting out the finish.

Race 3 tip: Our Brother George to win ($3.80) at Neds.com.au

Race 4 – Maiden Plate (1400m)


I Am Awesome hasn’t quite lived up to its name to date, but the talent is there and this looks like an ideal target.

Trained by Kris Lees, the four-year-old mare has finished seventh and sixth to date, but she wasn’t far behind them last start and natural improvement takes it close.

Race 4 tip: I Am Awesome to win ($2.90) at Sportsbet.com.au

Race 5 – BM57 Handicap (1000m)


Enigami is a consistent type which is having trouble breaking through, but it won’t get much easier than this.

It’s coming off a last start placing so consider at odds.

Race 5 tip: Enigami to place ($2.80) at WilliamHill.com.au

Race 6 – BM65 Handicap (1300m)


Kopite has the talent to win at this level, as it showed two starts back.

The Adam Duggan-trained five-year-old has had 30 starts for six wins and eight placings, so the experience works in its favour.

Race 6 tip: Kopite to win ($2.30) at Neds.com.au

Race 7 – C3 Handicap (1600m)


Zigamore has been prepared for this with three runs this campaign and a win looks in store here.

Its third placing last start came on this track and that experience should take it close to winning.

Race 7 tip: Zigamore to win ($3.20) at CrownBet.com.au
