Race 1 – Handicap (1000m)

[rmOC_events_list event_ids=1177382_01]
Allround Glory is a consistent type which has won and placed twice this campaign.

The heavily-tried three-year-old has already had 14 starts for four wins and seven minors, so it should be hard to hold out here.

Race 1 tip: Allround Glory to win at

Race 2 – R65 Handicap (1000m)

[rmOC_events_list event_ids=1177382_02]
I Wanna Break Free has rattled off consecutive wins in preparation for this and it looks a top hope again.

The five-year-old has the confidence sky high and punters should be confident with this runner.

Race 2 tip: I Wanna Break Free to win at

Race 3 – Maiden Plate (1200m)

[rmOC_events_list event_ids=1177382_03]
The Showman has been backed and beaten on many occasions, but it could break through for the win here.

Having placed at five of its 10 starts, The Showman has shown good consistency, but punters have taken odds as short as $1.80 in the past.

Stick with it.

Race 3 tip: The Showman to win at

Race 4 – BM70 Handicap (1400m)

[rmOC_events_list event_ids=1177382_04]
Awakenings scored an overdue win on this track last start and the 1.5-length victory was well deserved.

The six-year-old hadn’t won in over a year-and-a-half, but he might just kick on with it now.

Race 4 tip: Awakenings to win at

Race 5 – BM60 Handicap (1609m)

[rmOC_events_list event_ids=1177382_05]
Fabulous Child went well last start when finishing second at Mackay and that form looks good for this.

It’s well weighted at 56.5kg and bookmakers should be offering an each way quote.

Race 5 tip: Fabulous Child to win at

Race 6 – Great Northern Handicap (1200m)

[rmOC_events_list event_ids=1177382_06]
Craiglea Cruz is the top weight, but it deserves to be at 59kg here.

The seven-year-old hasn’t been in the best form this season, but that could all change here and this isn’t the strongest field ever assembled.

Race 6 tip: Craiglea Cruz to win at

Race 7 – R55 Handicap (1200m)

[rmOC_events_list event_ids=1177382_07]
Graphite Joe was a winner fresh up this campaign and although it hasn’t gone well since, it could recapture that form.

This is his first start on this track and that could make the difference.

Race 7 tip: Graphite Joe to place at
