Race 1 – Maiden Plate (1000m)
In a race with no form to read into the Weir and Yendall partnership is a show of faith for us. We’re backing More Bricks to win in an opening event that is a basic throw at the stumps.
Race 1 tip: More Bricks to win at Sportsbet
Race 2 – Maiden Plate (1200m)
Seized has placed second three times in seven attempts, missing out by less than a neck on its last two finishes inside the money. The form reads well going into this event.
Race 2 tip: Seized to win at William Hill
Race 3 – Maiden (1400m)
Voiceover has been decent this preparation after an uninspiring opening to its career. The three-year-old has not missed a placing across three runs since resuming on February 7 and a win looks like its close for the Poet’s Voice gelding.
Race 3 tip: Voiceover to win at Sportsbet
Race 4 – Benchmark 70 (3128m)
There’s only one runner here that has confronted the 3128m distance in the past and its I’ll’ava’alf. The horse placed at that attempt and comes into this race following a strong win at this track on March 15. Looms as the winner once again.
Race 4 tip: I’ll’ava’alf to win at Sportsbet
Race 5 – Benchmark 58 (2406m)
We’re expecting Danesai to bounce back here. The horse could only manage fourth last time out but before that it broke the maiden in strong fashion. Don’t give up on Danesai.
Race 5 tip: Danesai to win at William Hill
Race 6 – Benchmark 64 (1200m)
The Mood I’m In returned successfully on March 9, winning a BM58 race by over three lengths at the 1100m trip. The step-up in distance and class won’t be a problem here and the horse has a second-up win in the past from one attempt.
Race 6 tip: The Mood I’m In to win at Neds
Race 7 – Benchmark 64 (1400m)
Manhattan Arch broke the maiden tag last start at Ararat in stylish fashion and we think it can progress from that run. The gelding presents well here and comes into the race as the only last-start winner. Manhattan Arch should win here.
Race 7 tip: Manhattan Arch to win at Crownbet
Race 8 – Benchmark 58 (1700m)
The third-up Timor Gold has been great over its two resuming runs, returning with a fourth before winning last time out at BM58 on March 15. The horse jumps in weight but is ready to peak. We’re backing in Timor Gold.
Race 8 tip: Timor Gold to win at Neds
