Race 1 – Maiden Plate (2418m)

Caerus is looming as a winner here. In the last three runs the horse has finished third twice and fourth last time out. The gelding drops back in distance, which should be beneficial.

Race 1 tip: Caerus to win at Sportsbet

Race 2 – Maiden Plate (1212m)

Forbid Me Not has been improving with every career run and looks set to deliver. After finishing within the first-four in its first two races the horse peaked on April 6 to finish second by a nose. Bodes well for a strong run.

Race 2 tip: Forbid Me Not to win at Neds

Race 3 – Maiden (1112m)

Evolutionist has placed in four of its nine career starts and is the only runner to finish inside the money in Tuesday’s race. The horse will be fresh after a two month break and should be right in the frame.

Race 3 tip: Evolutionist to win at Sportsbet

Race 4 – Maiden Plate (1312m)

The promising De’ Majico returns after a spell looking to replicate the form that saw it place twice and finish fourth among four attempts. From a good gate and the experienced Jamie Mott on board we think it can be in the frame.

Race 4 tip: De’ Majico to win at Sportsbet

Race 5 – Benchmark 70 (1715m)

The consistent Almalita should be around the mark. The resuming run was a quality third and the second-up runs in the feature have been good, finishing second twice and third another time over three runs.

Race 5 tip: Almalita to win at William Hill

Race 6 – Benchmark 64 (2218m)

Since winning five starts back Antagonist has placed in fourth-straight events. Two of those runs were within half a length of the winner and the gelding looks to be the best runner in this field.

Race 6 tip: Antagonist to win at Sportsbet

Race 7 – Benchmark 64 (1112m)

Ramensky is a first-up beast that will be highly competitive fresh. After just under six months away from the race track the horse will be looking to replicate the form that has seen it win once and place a further two times from four attempts.

Race 7 tip: Ramensky to win at Neds

Race 8 – Benchmark 58 (1312m)

Evil Cry has been in good form this preparation and should be hard to beat. After resuming with a third the colt went on to win its maiden race. The horse has previously placed third-up in the past and will be ready to win once again.
