Race 1 – Maiden Plate (1200m)
Amphitrite has made progression across its two career runs and looks ready to peak third-up. The horse finished fourth on debut before a second behind Antilia two weeks ago at Kyneton. Antilia should be ready to win.
Race 1 tip: Antilia to win at Sportsbet
Race 2 – Maiden (1200m)
Miss Arrieta has placed in exactly half of her eight career runs and returned in good enough fashion to suggest a win is around the corner. The mare finished third behind the promising Uptown Gal on March 9, and should take race fitness from that run.
Race 2 tip: Miss Arrieta to win at William Hill
Race 3 – Maiden (1500m)
Sam Slick has placed three times from four runs this preparation and looks extremely close to a win. Last time out as a short-priced favourite the horse was within a length of the winner, but still should have won. Sam Slick should be ready to peak now.
Race 3 tip: Sam Slick to win at Sportsbet
Race 4 – Benchmark 58 (2020m)
The wide gate is going to make things tough for Grand Teton, but the last-start second at this level was encouraging. The four-year-old was only a neck away from victory and if it gets a good run in transit it should win this race.
Race 4 tip: Grand Teton to win at Sportsbet
Race 5 – Benchmark 58 (1000m)
A last-start win at this level boosts the confidence that Waterford Sound can go back-to-back. That win was at this level and here it drops back to a distance where it thrives at.
Race 5 tip: Waterford Sound to win at William Hill
Race 6 – Benchmark 58 (1200m)
Despite the short turnaround, a drop in class will help Lord Mornington here. We’re expecting the galloper to spear out from a wider gate and give the field something to catch. Doubt there’s anything in this field good enough to do it.
Race 6 tip: Lord Mornington to win at Neds
Race 7 – Benchmark 58 (1500m)
Riley’s Rocket has been in stellar form recently and actually drops significantly in grade here. The horse jumps in weight in a massive way but the class cannot be deny. In its last seven runs the horse has won three times and missed the top-two just once. Makes for great reading.
