Race 1 – 2200m Old Bailey Hcp (C3) 18:45pm
Selections: 8-3-2-1

Methane should appreciate the step up in distance and his form this preparation at the city course has been solid. He looks an each way play. Blastoise maps nicely has proven very consistent this term, while he too might appreciate the distance rise. Vincy ran well over the track and trip two starts back and has Zac Purton on board, while Golden Spectrum posted his best run to date last time over 1,800m and can run well.

Race 2 – 1200m Staunton Hcp (C4) 19:15pm
Selections : 6-10-9-2

This is a pretty even race with not much between a few. All Best Friends maps nicely and if he can hold the form from his last run then he should figure in the finish. Super Winner is often weak at the end of his races but is likely to lead and might take some running down. Happy Tango is drawn to get a soft run and can figure, while the drop back in trip suits Home Made.

Race 3 – 1650m Wyndham Hcp (C4) 19:45pm
Selections: 11-10-1-2

Might be a good race to bet a couple of bigger priced, value chances. Smiling Success looks the leader and providing he doesn’t go too fast as he did last time then he might take some reeling in. The step up to a mile looks a real bonus for Green Envy, along with the booking of Joao Moreira. Classic Posh maps well and although he has more weight has solid claims, while Oriental Elite is another that appears close to a win.

Race 4 – 1200m Staunton Hcp (C4) 20:15pm
Selections: 1-4-2-3

The best of the night is Sky Show. This progressive galloper is drawn well and his last win indicated there is plenty of upside. He looks clearly the one to beat. Sprint Forward drops back in trip and has the blinkers applied. Split Of A Second and Decisive Twelve have been in good form and have claims but the duo are poorly drawn, so they will need luck in running.

Race 5 – 1650m Wyndham Hcp (C4) 20:45pm
Selections: 4-10-9-11

Lightning Steed won well last time and although he has drawn wide can find the lead and might prove hard to run down again. Courageous Dragon maps to get a soft run on the back of the lead and will be popular with the market. Incanto Prepared has upside and he can inject some value in to the exotics along with Humble Steed who will need a good ride from a wide alley.

Race 6 – 1000m Shelley Hcp (C4) 21:15pm
Selections: 6-1-3-5

A very competitive race with not much separating a number of the entrants. Wild West Wing impressed in a recent trial and in his first preparation, his best run was over the track and trip. Forza Angel worked hard last time and all things considered battled pretty well and with Zac Purton taking over he looks a solid chance. Daily Delight is awkwardly drawn but remains in good form and might be a touch over the odds. Excellent Chariot impressed on his local debut against a number of these rivals and is open to improvement.

Race 7 – 1800m Cochrane Hcp (C2) 21:45pm
Selections: 5-4-10-9

Columbus County had excuses when beaten in the HK Derby and his recent trial showed he is ready to go, although this will be his first run at the city track. Super Oasis brings similar form lines and only narrowly failed last time, when the blinkers were applied for the first time. Solar Wai Wai is the value, while Helena Baby hit the line strongly last time and any market support could be telling.

Race 8 – 1650m Lyndhurst Hcp (C3) 22:15am
Selections: 9-5-1-3

A competitive race but the rise in grade and drop in weight give Rich And Lucky a good chance to go back-to-back. He may not get an easy lead this time, but could always take the box seat. Best Alliance has been racing very well without much luck and is a leading chance. Sunshine Warrior has a very good course and distance record but it wont be easy with top weight, while Flash Famous needs some luck from a wide draw.

Race 9 – 1200m Graham Hcp (C3) 22:50am
Selections: 7-10-5-6

Highland Fortune caught the eye on his last run when wide without cover and with Champion hoop Zac Purton jumping on board, he looks the one to beat. Big Fortune brings the same form lines and he might the best value option. Island Shine is racing well at this level and maps to get a soft run, while Hardly Swears has been freshened and back to Happy Valley is a clear positive.
