Race 1 – Maiden (1100m)
Stunned made an impressive debut on June 7, finishing just two parts of a length away from winning. The horse stays at the distance and will take a lot from the first-up experience.
Race 1 tip: Stunned to win ($3.80 at William Hill)
Race 2 – Maiden (1200m)
We’re giving Gambeson one more chance here. The Godolphin runner put in a howler of an effort at the Farm on May 30, but before that had two good finishes in far more competitive company than this. The three-year-old is on its last chance.
Race 2 tip: Gambeson to win ($3.40 at William Hill)
Race 3 – Benchmark 65 (2600m)
Despite not yet having a win to her name, Diamond Star Hero comes into this race as a great chance to breakthrough. At Class 1 level the has back-to-back placings and looms as a winning threat with only 54kg.
Race 3 tip: Diamond Star Hero to win ($3.20 at Sportsbet)
Race 4 – Benchmark 65 (1600m)
Antonio’s Pride took ten races to break the maiden but we think it can deliver straight away following that win. The gelding delivered a blistering performance to win by seven and a half lengths and we believe it can go back-to-back in this one.
Race 4 tip: Antonio’s Pride to win ($3.50 at Sportsbet)
Race 5 – Benchmark 65 (1200m)
Pride Of Darci looks well placed here. Despite a disappointing showing last time out as a favourite at Kembla, we’re giving the horse another chance based on its good draw and quality second-up form. This is a winnable race for the gelding.
Race 5 tip: Pride Of Darci to win ($1.70 at William Hill)
Race 6 – Class 1 Handicap (1000m)
We’re backing Oocumba to go forward from the inside alley and win this from the front. The horse is fresh off a six month break and we’re anticipating a strong showing following a respectable trial.
Race 6 tip: Oocumba to win ($10 at Neds)
Race 7 – Maiden Plate (1600m)
Eskimo River is at big odds to win this one but we were impressed with its last-start second at this track on May 27. The horse doesn’t get away quickly so the inside draw may hurt the chances but we’re backing it in to give this one a real shake.
Race 7 tip: Eskimo River to win ($14 at Ladbrokes)
Race 8 – Class 4 (1900m)
Strome looks set to continue the hot form here. The horse has four wins from five starts this preparation and looks the horse to beat despite the wide draw and the top weight.
Race 8 tip: Strome to win ($2.65 at Crownbet)
