Race 1 – Class 3 Handicap (1100m)

Osborne will be highly competitive in this one. The horse is fresh out of a great third-up victory and we believe it can go back-to-back.

Race 1 tip: Osborne to win at William Hill

Race 2 – Maiden (1400m)

He’s Rushin’ has been unlucky over its last three starts, finishing second on two occasions. Both those runs suggested to us that a win is just around the corner.

Race 2 tip: He’s Rushin’ to win at Neds

Race 3 – Maiden (1400m)

A third in a resuming run suggests to us that Monmouth can get the job done second-up. The gelding should improve on that run and will benefit from the first-up performance.

Race 3 tip: Monmouth to win at Sportsbet

Race 4 – Benchmark 64 (1200m)

Cimarron’s Hero peaked strongly after a good preparation, winning a BM62 contest last-start. No reason to think the horse cannot go on with the job from the inside draw.

Race 4 tip: Cimarron’s Hero to win at Sportsbet

Race 5 – Class 1 (1600m)

Banca Boy looks close to a win. The horse has placed four times from five attempts and looks like a win could be just around the corner. Banca Boy returns to a track where it has a win and two placings from four races.

Race 5 tip: Banca Boy to win at William Hill

Race 6 – Benchmark 70 (1600m)

White Hawk looks to be the horse to beat here. The last-start win at BM62 level was strong and we think it can back it up well here.

Race 6 tip: White Hawk to win at Neds

Race 7 – Class 1 (1200m)

Bless Me Father is looking to back up its last-start maiden victory and looks a strong chance to do so. The win was powerful at Hobart on March 25, winning by half a length as a $41 outsider.

Race 7 tip: Bless Me Father to win at Ladbrokes

Race 8 – Class 2 Handicap (1400m)

Another Brother has a good record fresh and make an impact here. Before being turned out the horse had won two of its last three races, so it knows what it takes to get the job done.

Race 8 tip: Another Brother to win at Crownbet
