Race 1 – Maiden Plate (1000m)
Bramfield should be taking this race out. After debuting with a disappointing fifth the horse has not missed the placings in two subsequent events. The inside draw will help and we believe it will break the maiden at the fourth time of asking.
Race 1 tip: Bramfield to win at Sportsbet
Race 2 – Maiden Plate (1210m)
Equidant will relish the inside draw on Sunday. The horse has form at the track and will be one of the better chances in a hard to read maiden event.
Race 2 tip: Equidant to win at Neds
Race 3 – Benchmark 56 (1000m)
Helmara will look to go forward and take this one out from the front. The horse has a win this preparation at Port Lincoln and will look to impress for a new trainer.
Race 3 tip: Helmara to win at Ladbrokes
Race 4 – Benchmark 56 (1750m)
Hand To Hand is racing for the first time since breaking the maiden and can run a cheeky race out of the grade. The in-form Raquel Clark takes the ride and will look to settle just off the speed and finish over the top of them.
Race 4 tip: Hand To Hand to win at Sportsbet
Race 5 – Class 2 (1210m)
Penultimate Star will look to go forward and win it from the front. The horse has won this preparation and is one of the better performing gallopers coming into the event.
Race 5 tip: Penultimate Star to win at William Hill
Race 6 – Benchmark 80 (1750m)
Neva Doubt Us has won two races in a row and looms as the best winning hope here. The horse has multiple wins at the Port Lincoln track and draws well enough to be a major player once again.
Race 6 tip: Neva Doubt Us to win at Crownbet
Race 7 – Benchmark 64 (1210m)
Lake Jackson is second-up and will benefit from its return run. The horse only narrowly missed out upon resumption and strips fitter from that run. The horse has won before second-up and from barrier two it will be right in the mix.
Race 7 tip: Lake Jackson to win at Crownbet
Race 8 – Benchmark 60 (1390m)
Ticket To Paris has not missed a placing this preparation and will look to continue the good run on Sunday. The barrier 11 draw will be a concern but the horse has excelled going forward in the past so we expect a similar showing.
