Race 1 – Benchmark 55 (900m)
Chatteriz is hunting a third-straight win and looks well placed to get the job done. The horse has won at a higher weight than this and we do not think the wide barrier will be an issue with the early speed it possesses.
Race 1 tip: Chatteriz to win at Sportsbet
Race 2 – Benchmark 55 (1400m)
Ave is third-up on Sunday where it has previously placed at in the past. The horse has been great since returning this preparation, finishing second at Orange before winning at Bathurst carrying a massive weight. The horse steps up in grade but drops a huge 4.5kg.
Race 2 tip: Ave to win at Neds
Race 3 – Maiden Handicap (1400m)
Summer Surf missed out by a nose last time and looks well placed to finally break through on Sunday. The horse gets in well at the weights and can win in an ordinary maiden field.
Race 3 tip: Summer Surf to win at Ladbrokes
Race 4 – Maiden Plate (1100m)
Wake Up Cass is second-up on Sunday, where it has placed two times in a pair of attempts. The horse finished two parts of a length of winning its maiden on Boxing Day at the same track and we think it is capable of breaking the duck here.
Race 4 tip: Wake Up Cass to win at Sportsbet
Race 5 – Class 1 Plate (1700m)
Mount Taishan gets a great gate to jump from and will be right in the mix here. The horse has been around the mark in its last three runs, which has included two placings where it missed out on both occasions by less than a length. Only issue will be the slight rise in weight, but at its best it can win this.
Race 5 tip: Mount Taishan to win at William Hill
Race 6 – Benchmark 58 (1600m)
Zaphod has finished first or second in its last two runs and in a race where it draws well, and with not a lot of speed we expect to perform once again. The horse should spear out and lead almost uncontested and we think it can run them into the ground from there.
Race 6 tip: Zaphod to win at Crownbet
Race 7 – Class 1 Handicap (1100m)
London Cab jumps from gate three which will be a big advantage in this one. The horse was dismal at Orange on December 30 but a drop back in class will help and it draws very well in the weights.
Race 7 tip: London Cab to win at Crownbet
