Track Condition: Soft 5

Rail Position: Out 5m 1000 to w/p, then 3m remainder

What a tough race. COMPORTA has the big weight but deserves it after such a strong, impressive debut run to grab 2nd in a similar city maiden over 1100m. Bred to like this trip further and looms large.

SHIVANI has raced twice thus far and has foot on the till. That 1kg weight difference with Comporta may be significant. On speed all the way when 2nd at Newcastle over 1300m last start. Have in your numbers.Watch the market.

EASIER was scratched yesterday from a bush race she looked a good thing in for this. Obviously has talent and should run home hard.


The toppie here LAW PARTY is smart. Beaten a nose on debut in town at this level, finishing hard from midfield. That run, tightened him up and the experience now make him a formidable opponent.

CASH REGISTER is on the quick back-up from a gutsy 2nd this class last run. Horses on quick back-ups tend to race very well.

VANDERLAND has raced four times and been placed all four times. Gets back and runs on – that’s what happened when good 3rd this city grade last start.


From this outside draw SHADOW BRIDGE has pretty much no option other than scoot across the front of this field. He is extremely fit now and should find the paint. If not challenged mid-race, will kick off the bend and win this.

BRAZENPINE has found his limit in this grade but smallish field and residual fitness make him a good place chance.

ROSINA KOJONUP resumes here but has won first up in the past. Has finishing power. If her mind is on the job she can fly late.


On paper this 1400m affair looks far too short for GUISE. But after the 3kg allowance and a look at her record tells us she is actually a chance here. Will get back but has power late. Have in your numbers.

CONSTANZIA is a pretty handy mare when she has clear galloping room and being 3rd up here after a win in the bush and a strong finishing effort to just miss a place last start means she has claims here.

LATINA BEAUTY goes well this grade and has no weight on her back. Dropped the bit coming to the turn last start in a stronger race but came again to finish 5th. Better placed here.



Good betting race. WAIRERE FALLS fronts up again. He just runs on so hard with a big red light over his head every run. It may just be a matter of timing his finishing run better. If Tommy Berry works that out, he flashes past all these today.

JUNGLE BOOK likes it a little longer but he is pretty tough and being 3rd up after a pair of tough runs to make him super fit, he rates highly. Will be flashing home.

GALAHAD’S QUEST looks well placed. No doubt leads these and is super fit. Is trained here so will bowl along, seeing all the familiar sights, and take catching.


DARLEB is on his last chance here. Has failed to run a place at his past five starts since resuming. Has the power to win this but isn’t savaging the line. Is fit and is down in grade now. Can win on his best.

OBELOS is a tough old boot who has been up a long while but is always a threat a this level. Gets back and chimes in and looks nicely placed today. Ran on well enough last start in a similar race when 4th to say he’s a threat here.

BIG BAD BRUCE is racing poorly. Last start beaten a long way in a stronger grade but that could be the key. He is a picky princess but should get a lot of things going his way today and likes this track.  Big show.



VRENELI is tough and fast out of the gates. Will find the front but is up in class. Only win was at maiden level. Still, drawn perfectly to find a comfortable lead here. Has claims

MISS SURE SHOT is rising in class, but gee, two wins from two starts this time up say she is flying. Watch market. Must be considered. Expect similar showing.

FRONT MONEY is 3rd up here and drawn well. Is very honest and did run 4th in both outings since resuming. Super fit now and looms large. Can win this.
