Race 1

4 Best Trio: First starter from Canterbury with some excellent workout and trial form on the board. Set to win races and should start here.

6 American Lightning: Excellent run behind a couple of smart ones on debut. Form has been franked. Big chance here too.

2 Boyzhavtime: Kept coming at them last week up the markers and very good running fourth. Small field here should suit. In the mix.

3 The Bounty Hunter: Showed a bit of ability in workouts and trials ahead of today. Bit of breeding on the side too so worth a look.

Selections: 4-6-2-3


Race 2

5 Afterburner: First starter with breeding and plenty in the ability department too. Should make a winning debut here.

9 Cuddly Trouble: Has won a race, which is more than most here. Orange jumps in the bike and can get in on the action.

2 Brandy And Dry: Can’t really fault the form when considering for a race like this. Handy draw and should be in the fight the whole way.

1 Whangamata: Honest toiler who generally does things right which should bode well here. Good draw too.

Selections: 5-9-2-1


Race 3

9 The Optimist: In good nick and solid fourth behind some good ones last time out. Drawn to get a sweet trip. Can win with a cold shot at them.

1 The White Rabbit: Multiple race winner in here nicely and should get every chance from the inside draw. Big winning chance.

6 Tact Eze: Big drop in class for this. Likes this track and the likely conditions too. Should roll forward and give them something to think about.

3 Tactical Change: Stepped up and delivered last time out with a good win. Capable of pushing forward here and giving a good sight too.

Selections: 9-1-6-3


Race 4

6 Kiwitrix: Has been disappointing at times, but mobile conditions suit and better class than most of this field. Can win this with good manners.

2 Christmas Babe: More like it last time out with a good second deserves another winning turn and gets the perfect opportunity today.

8 Lisa Marie P: Loves the short course distance stuff and even from the wide draw looks a big chance today with the addition of the sliding blinds.

9 Rydgemont Milly: Consistent enough performer in good races lately. Drops back here. Just needs a bit of luck from the second line.

Selections: 6-2-8-9


Race 5

1 Might Be Me: Only a maiden, but a whole lot better than a maiden. Inside draw over the sprint should work the oracle here. Deserves a win.

8 Dachy: Loves  the short course stuff and hot mile in front of her will see her unleash a devastating final burst which could be good enough to win this.

4 Kickupyaheels: Impressive last time out when winning with authority. In here nicely and no reason why it can’t be two in a row.

5 Amore Lancome: Loving life in the deep south and good enough to ruffle a few feathers here if things pan out nicely.

Selections: 1-8-4-5


Race 6

2 Who Made Who: Impressive qualifier on the grass and subsequent trials have been excellent. Should make a winning debut today.

8 American Eyretime: No disgrace in form so far this time in. Wide draw doesn’t help the cause much, but still a major player.

4 Dress Code: First starter from a reputable stable. Can punch out, get handy and give it a good shake here.

12 Omaggio: Disappointing last time out but debut run for third over this distance was excellent. Pace on and the chance will come.

Selections: 2-8-4-12


Race 7

11 Major Watson: Not much went right last time out. Talented enough to step up to a race like this and deliver a winning turn without too much problem.

10 Tulsa Jaccka: Has shown plenty of ability in the career to date and drops back in grade a little bit here. Should be right in the fight with half a chance.

2 Makara: Should find this a bit easier than some of the recent performances. Good draw to use and can make the most of it.

3 I’m Watching You: Has the upside to roll forward here and get on the speed and give them plenty to think about.

Selections: 11-10-2-3


Race 8

5 See Ya Write: Never far away form the action and a brisk mile should really suit the style. Can win this, especially with the right kind of trip.

2 Seamark: Has done a great job in a short career and from the handy draw here today should roll forward and keep them honest.

7 Pocket Watch: Big win last time out but should have won it too. A little harder here but respect for the stable and the driver.

4 Slate: Two strong runs to open the campaign and won’t be long from finding the winners circle again. Gets a chance here.

Selections: 5-2-7-4


Race 9

7 Spirit Of St Louis: Excellent recent form against better fields than this. Should get onto the speed at some point and look to keep them honest.

4 Sugar Loaf: Smart three-year-old who should strip fitter from last week’s fresh up run. Can roll forward give a strong show.

9 Born To Boogie: Excellent run against a quality field last week. Made up a stack of ground. Fitness peaking and a big chance today.

3 Gemma Mac: Not bad last time out and gets a chance here with Orange in the bike to get another win on the board.

Selections: 7-4-9-3


Race 10

13 Scotlynn Beach Boy: Hasn’t had much luck since coming south. More ability than anything else in this. Can win at a price.

3 Longueval: Knocking on the door and gets a good draw to work with here and should be out to make the most of it. Just needs the chance.

1 Mach Quillan: Excellent in all three runs. Gets the plum draw and therefore a good trip. Can win it with a cold shot.

11 Forsure: No shame in the career to date and even from the second row draw here. Should be ranging into it when it really matters.

Selections: 13-3-1-11
