Kuiper Belt rates as one of the better chances on the card. The horse is fresh off a six length success at Hawkesbury and while it rises in weight to 61kg, the gelding will again be difficult to get past.
Nautibernie looks hard to beat coming into the second event. The horse has only missed out by a combined two lengths over its last three starts. The filly will right in the frame to finally break the maiden at the sixth time of asking.
Unbeaten filly Miss Celebration is looking to make it two-from-two and finds the perfect race to deliver. The three-year-old carries 5.5kg less than the favourite Eleazar, which we believe will be pivotal in this one.

David Payne-trained Time Of Glory looks poised to end its winless run. Over its three career starts the horse has not missed a placing, including a last-start third, just one length behind the winner. From a good gate we’re backing the gelding to break through.
Bjorn Baker runner Smartypy will be the horse to beat in this one. The filly resumes after a pair of smart trials and we believe the three-year-old will be good enough to deliver a winning performance.
