Race 1 – Maiden Plate (1350m)

[rmOC_events_list event_ids=1184054_01]

Godolphin runner Stone is overdue for a win. After a resuming second on March 29 the gelding jumps in distance, which will benefit the three-year-old.

Race 1 tip: Stone to win ($2 at Ladbrokes)

Race 2 – Class 1 Handicap (1600m)

[rmOC_events_list event_ids=1184054_02]

Penske is second-up after a strong resuming run where the gelding finished within a length of victory. From gate four we believe the four-year-old will be hard to beat, especially while stepping out to the mile.

Race 2 tip: Penske to win ($3 at Neds)

Race 3 – Maiden Plate (2100m)

[rmOC_events_list event_ids=1184054_03]

Just Gorgeous is unlucky to still be racing in the maiden grade. Placing second in its last two runs the filly remains at the distance which saw it finish runner-up at this venue.

Race 3 tip: Just Gorgeous to win ($2.30 at Sportsbet)

Race 4 – Maiden Handicap (1600m)

[rmOC_events_list event_ids=1184054_04]

Brooke gets to the right trip here. While the horse placed last time out at the 1200m journey, it was miles away from winning. On February 12 the mare finished within a length of the winner, and we believe it can deliver a similar run.

Race 4 tip: Brooke to win ($9 at Sportsbet)

Race 5 – Maiden (1200m)

[rmOC_events_list event_ids=1184054_05]

Hez Lethal is the best performed runner coming into the fifth event. Having placed in three of its four career runs, the horse’s only downside here is a wide gate. Expect Hez Lethal to go forward and be tough to catch.

Race 5 tip: Hez Lethal to win ($5 at William Hill)

Race 6 – Class 2 Handicap (1200m)

[rmOC_events_list event_ids=1184054_06]

Cuba should be winning this race. The third-up horse has a placing at this point of the preparation in the past and should be in the leading division early from the good gate.

Race 6 tip: Cuba to win ($3 at Neds)

Race 7 – Benchmark 70 (1100m)

[rmOC_events_list event_ids=1184054_07]

Validate looks the horse to beat. The horse resumed well when taking out a race at a similar grading to this and has two wins and three placings from five second-up attempts. Bodes well for a great run.

Race 7 tip: Validate to win at Ladbrokes

Race 8 – Benchmark 71 (1350m)

[rmOC_events_list event_ids=1184054_08]

A great patch of form before being turned out suggests to us that Magic Search can be highly competitive in this one. Prior to the spell the horse had completed a hat-trick, and further to that, the filly has two placings from a pair of first-up attempts.

Race 8 tip: Magic Search to win ($5 at Ladbrokes)
