Sportsbet – Race Comments and Selections:

Race 6:
15, 18, 20 dual acceptors. SPEED: 6 leads 2, 5 with 14 sitting closer. 15 too? GALAXY RAIDER has been excellent all three runs this prep and the Lakeside win, with 61kg against the pattern, may just be the confidence-booster he needs to go on now. KAZIO ran on in that ”grand prix” race at Lakeside quinellaed by Sunday Pray (good last week) and KILMACURRAGH (is here). Overs? SILVERA gets the claim and is very good fresh but draws out. BOXACHOCOLATES chased hard at Oz debut and beat third clearly. BALCAZAR has some strong formlines. He can win! FOUR BY FOUR, ANOTHER BULLSEYE are hopes.
Selections 3 17 9

Race 7:
7 & 11 dual acceptors. SPEED: 4, 10 from 9, 13. SOVEREIGN NATION was back and raced tight at Bendigo against the pattern. The win here prior was very good. PILOTE D’ESSAI is trialling well. First up off 62 weeks is not easy but he is a good fresh horse! AMOVATIO can win again the day (if ever) he finds some luck! RHYTHM TO SPARE led at a crawl (some 10+L below average first section) second up and held off LAND OF PLENTY (didn’t quicken/good late) and JESTER HALO (very good against tempo). Please yourself SO SI BON. For mine, he needs a cold ride. KING’S COMMAND. AKAVOROUN (betting?) are hopes.
Selections 8 1 4 3

Race 8:
SPEED: 3 may lead 10 with 5, 6, 9 all handy. BOOM TIME is just a good horse! He has trialled very well for his return. HIGH CHURCH has run very well in a high-rating Cranbourne Cup fresh but that was off nine weeks. Today he’s off a 48-week break so ?? Betting? TURNITAROUND may have led too slowly last time (~14L below average first section). SECOND BULLET can run enormous fresh. MAGIC CONSOL is so genuine and he has 51kg here. TARQUIN ran well against the tempo last start and jumps to 1800m. QUICK DEFENCE had sound late splits latest. RADICAL drops to 54kg and may be the best blowout hope
Selections 6 5 1 3

Race 9:
10 may lead 15 (dual acceptor) with 1, 2, 3, 6 all handy. 7, 12, 14 off those? ICONOCLASM is highly promising. He sat wide here last time yet was too strong. LORD SUNDOWNER beat older horses fresh with 59kg and ran very well in the Gothic Stakes in spring at 1400m. VILLA SARCHI looks ready for 1400m now, though Iconoclasm did sail by him when they clashed on April 14. WEAPON, CATESBY (1400m?) and TBILISI are chances. MR STORM is a hope ridden quieter.
Selections 1 2

Ladbrokes – Race Comments:

Race 6:
Looking for best value in the top four picks. GALAXY RAIDER bolted in last start at Sandown and won two of 13 as a favourite, a winning chance. KILMACURRAGH a winner at first outing this prep and was narrowly beaten as a favourite last start at Sandown, in with a chance. SILVERA back after 21 week break and Cranbourne trial winner, looks threatening. ANOTHER BULLSEYE a winner at first outing this prep and only just missed in driving finish last start at Caulfield, could threaten.

Race 7:
LAND OF PLENTY has won at Bendigo and placed once this prep, a winning chance. KING’S COMMAND 2 wins from seven attempts this campaign and goes well at Flemington, each-way claims. SO SI BON drops 1.5kg from last run and likely to race off the speed, place only. SOVEREIGN NATION a track specialist winning three times at Flemington and won once this prep at the track two runs back, place claims.

Race 8:
MAGIC CONSOL won last start at Caulfield and five from 10 wins have been in the dry, hard to go past. BOOM TIME resumes after a 22 week spell and Tatura trial winner, don’t treat lightly. TURNITAROUND has won three times at Flemington before and placed when fresh, could upset. QUICK DEFENCE in strong form with two wins from eight attempts this campaign and four of five wins have come from dry ground, cannot be ruled out.

Race 9:
ICONOCLASM in strong form with three wins from five attempts this campaign and won last start at Flemington, a winning chance. MOANA JEWEL has had a flying start to their career and draws to do no work, looks threatening. WEAPON 2 wins from six attempts this campaign but disappointed when placing as favourite last start at Ballarat, place chance. NAANTALI finished midfield last start at Caulfield on a soft track when resuming and placed at Caulfield in only second-up attempt, needs the breaks.

Unibet – Race Comments:

Race 6:
GALAXY RAIDER (3) Shows plenty of heart in its racing. Making headway every start and rates strongly here. KILMACURRAGH (6) Runner that can cruise. Consistent pace will make it hard for the others to peg back. JAKE’S HILL (4) Steady horse that never appears to do much wrong. Looks nice if you can get an each way price. FAMELIST (5) Deserves respect in these conditions and this grade suits ideally. Has to be included.

Race 7:
AND OF PLENTY (8) Honest galloper who may get the run of the race. Winning chance. KING’S COMMAND (10) Rates fairly and should be thereabouts in this. Worth watching here. SOVEREIGN NATION (1) Definite improver who cannot be ignored and might sneak into multiples. RHYTHM TO SPARE (4) Slowly finding form and could measure up. Sound chances.

Race 8:
MAGIC CONSOL (5) Can show plenty of fight and has proven to be very effective in these conditions. Has plenty of claims. SECOND BULLET (4) Sure to keep improving. Prominent showing expected and won’t be far off them. QUICK DEFENCE (7) Racing well. Can show a good turn of foot and can figure in this. TURNITAROUND (3) Continues to race fairly. Can surprise and by no means out of it.

Race 9:
ICONOCLASM (1) Really hitting form of late and is right in the mix again. Goes close. LORD SUNDOWNER (2) Worth considering in these conditions and commands respect in this class. With luck could go close. MR STORM (7) Could figure in the finish here and is open to improvement. Suitably placed in this race. CATESBY (3) Expect a prominent showing so watch the market closely. Can fill a place in this field.

Sportsbet – Race Comments and Selections:

Race 6:
Capacity field over the 900m scamper where the winning trainer scores him/herself & brand new Harley Davidson to ride home from the track! Three leaders in the race nos. 14, 17 & 20 (note 2 are emergencies) whilst 11, 13, 15 & 19 could also lead without any surprise. PROMPT RETURN is the defending champion in this race & the way he trialled here recently in very fast time suggests he can win again, very good fresh & unbeaten here (twice this trip). Always had time for KHALAMA, she’s nice & fresh & likely to be storming home at the end. GUARD OF HONOUR & SNOOPY right in the mix.
Selections 4 8 5 3

Race 7:
Speed here is Whypeeo & Ours To Keep who have both drawn out, they should be able to get over without being overtaxed. WHYPEEO was very impressive winning at Doomben first up on wet ground, he meets a few nice types though here & I’m not convinced about taking a short quote if that ends up being the case. CHAMPAGNE CUDDLES has terrific form in Sydney & looked very good winning a recent Canterbury trial. SHOGUN SUN has never shown any speed in his races however has been trialling like a bomb of late running fast times from the front. MARBLE drew wide & weaved home well at Doomben behind Whypeeo.
Selections 10 5 1 3

Race 8:
The day’s main feature is the Hollindale which is the final lead up (for most) to the Doomben Cup in a fortnight. What strikes me about this race is the lack of a leader, only nos. 1, 3 & 11 map to race forward with 3 parked handily. Should things pan out that way then that quartet are the ones to beat & for mine COMIN’ THROUGH is the one off a couple of tidy recent efforts behind handy types Winx & Happy Clapper! IT’S SOMEWHAT won this race last year & yes he was going extra well at the time however he’s ready to defend second up. BEDFORD had the flashing light on last run, include.
Selections 2 1 3 9

Race 9:
Test The World, Modern Wonder & the widely drawn Anatola look our tempo setters in the last. TEST THE WORLD & ANATOLA fought out the finish in a recent race down south with the latter winning & the former closing ground late, taking the barriers into account from a very awkward starting point I’m leaning toward TEST THE WORLD to turn the tables however luck in running for ANATOLA will likely prove the decider. Topweight SYLPHEED has trialled quite nicely & is rarely far away, more than capable of running a strong race fresh from a good barrier draw. The winning chances don’t end there though!
Selections 3 5 1 7

Ladbrokes – Race Comments:

Race 6:
Can’t imagine one of the top two not winning. SPURCRAFT strong in winning last start at Toowoomba on a soft track and yet to miss the placegetters, marginal top pick. GUARD OF HONOUR in strong form with two wins from five attempts this campaign and just missed as favourite last start at Sunshine Coast, hard to hold out. TIYATROLANI has the speed to overcome a very wide draw and three from four wins have been in the dry, sneaky chance. RINGO’S A ROCKSTAR bolted in last start at Sunshine Coast and three from five wins have been in the dry, could threaten.

Race 7:
WHYPEEO led throughout for a dominant win last start at Doomben on a heavy track when resuming and four from five wins have been in the dry, serious player. CHAMPAGNE CUDDLES resumes from a 31 week spell. Placed at Randwick when last fresh and won two of three first-up, don’t treat lightly. MARBLE has won at Rosehill and placed once this prep, quinella. FREDDIE FOX TROT resumes from a 27 week spell and winner of four in a row after last start win at Doomben, place claims.

Race 8:
OREGON’S DAY placed in the Coolmore Classic this campaign and came on to finish towards the front last start in the Queen Of The Turf, genuine contender. COMIN’ THROUGH placed in the Doncaster Handicap this campaign and finished fifth last start in the Queen Elizabeth Stakes, don’t treat lightly. TOM MELBOURNE generally races near the speed, dangerous. IT’S SOMEWHAT has the speed to overcome drawing the widest barrier and six from nine wins have been in the dry, in with a chance.

Race 9:
CRYSTAL FOUNTAIN coming off a win at Caulfield when fresh and all wins have come when faced with dry ground, commands respect. TEST THE WORLD placed last start at Randwick when fresh and four from six wins have been in the dry, sneaky chance. ANATOLA last start winner at Randwick when resuming and has the speed to overcome a very wide draw, in with a chance. POMELO should look to roll forward and won two of five as a favourite, could threaten.

Unibet – Race Comments:

Race 6:
TIYATROLANI (12) Is better suited than many here and has the opportunity to come away with a win. LUCY ROSE (14) Sure to figure. Some hope here. Chance at best in this. GUARD OF HONOUR (5) Slowly finding form and could measure up. Sound chances. GIRLS GOT SPIRIT (20) Worth considering in these conditions and commands respect in this class. With luck could go close.

Race 7:
WHYPEEO (1) Racing in top order and has a great turn of foot. Rates on top. CHAMPAGNE CUDDLES (10) Improvement anticipated. Has the form to be a major threat. Looks suited. FREDDIE FOX TROT (6) Looks a winning chance in this company and has to be respected. Expected to fight out the finish. FOX SWIFT (11) Usually thereabouts but needs the right run. Place chance.

Race 8:
COMIN’ THROUGH (2) Conditions favour and the latest form for this runner is very solid. Take beating. IT’S SOMEWHAT (1) Conditions today look to be favourable and the overall race form leans towards it. Will be in the finish. TOM MELBOURNE (3) Ideally placed and looks ready to fire. Respect. OREGON’S DAY (11) Usually thereabouts but needs the right run. Place chance.

Race 9:
ANATOLA (5) Best suited at this trip and has the ability to take part. Winning chance in this line up. CRYSTAL FOUNTAIN (7) Form of late good for this race and should go close in this grade. No shock to see a win. TEST THE WORLD (3) Minor claims on recent form and meeting a tough field. Worth entertaining from a place and exotics perspective. BRED FOR LUCK (15) Steady horse that never appears to do much wrong. Looks nice if you can get an each way price.

Sportsbet – Race Comments and Selections:

Race 5:
DESERT LASHES dug deep to win when resuming. Her second up record reads well and she’ll appreciate a 3kg drop in weight. Lightly raced mare SPRIGHTLY LASS had the race taken off her in the stewards room two starts ago, so is unlucky not to be undefeated this time in work. CONCEALER won the Manihi Stakes two starts ago. She didn’t finish the race off as expected last time however she had 59kg on her back. Blinkers and a tongue tie go on for the first time. CASINO WIZARD didn’t have much luck last time, look for an improved showing from him. I’M WESLEY and FERRANDO create interest.
Selections 10 7 9 3

Race 6:
PLEASURING charged home from back in the field to finish fourth in the Group 3 Auraria Stakes last start. She’s much better suited out to 2000m. TEMPLE OF BEL was slow to begin at Caulfield second up before running on hard to just miss out in a photo finish. SOPRESSA was a good thing beaten in the Laelia on 7/4, then made amends with an easy win last start. SAVACOOL looked good winning at Caulfield second up. She’ll be fitter again and out to 2000m is a plus. ALOISIA had no favours when third behind Hiyaam at Rosehill two starts ago. THINK BLEUE and JUNGLE FISH are other hopes.
Selections 6 9 5 7

Race 7:
QUILISTA made it three wins on the trot when she led throughout to take out the Group 2 Sapphire at Randwick three weeks ago. It’s impossible to fault her and she has drawn favourably in barrier 2. DAINTY TESS came from back in the field to defeat Viddora here a fortnight ago. She’ll appreciate a solid tempo up front today. CATCHY returned to form with a win in the Group 2 Arrowfield Stakes last month. VIDDORA didn’t have much go her way last time but would have preferred to see her draw out a bit here. SECRET AGENDA and SUPER CASH are others with claims.
Selections 6 5 15 2

Race 8:
SAVAPINSKI ran a bold race when resuming at Randwick a fortnight ago. The step up to a mile is a big plus and she got the money second up last time in work. QUILATE hit the line well over an unsuitable trip first up. She’ll be better with that run under her belt and will appreciate the longer trip. SWORD OF LIGHT has figured in the placings at her past two outings and drops back to mares company this afternoon. SEBRING DREAM looked to have a bit in hand when she won at Flemington last start. TIAMO GRACE disappointed on a soft track at Caulfield last time and can improve.
Selections 1 6 3 9

Ladbrokes – Race Comments:

Race 5:
SPRIGHTLY LASS has been flying of late and has the speed to overcome a very wide draw, hard to go past. DESERT LASHES coming off a win at Morphettville when fresh and has very strong form at the track, place chance. KEEN ARRAY finished half a length back from the leader last start at Caulfield when resuming and four from seven wins have been in the dry, quinella. I’M WESLEY back from let-up and will be happy to get a good track, place only.

Race 6:
Hard to split the top two picks. THINK BLEUE looking for a hatrick after winning two in a row at Flemington and Moonee Valley, one of the main hopes. ALOISIA won once and placed twice in six Group I races, in the mix. SOPRESSA in strong form with two wins from five attempts this campaign and won last start at Morphettville, could threaten. SAVACOOL bolted in last start at Caulfield and two from three wins have been in the dry, still in this.

Race 7:
Go wide in exotics in a tough race. WHISPERING BROOK gave nothing else a chance to win last start at Morphettville and in strong form with two wins from three attempts this campaign, well placed. VIDDORA just missed as favourite last start at Morphettville when fresh. Has one win and two placings in four Group I races, in with a chance. QUILISTA winner of three in a row after last start win at Randwick, could upset. DAINTY TESS can’t knock the form winning two in a row at Morphettville and Ascot, sneaky chance.

Race 8:
SAVAPINSKI placed last start at Randwick when resuming and expected to settle on speed, genuine contender. SEBRING DREAM coming off a win at Flemington and all four wins have come in the dry, don’t treat lightly. HUSSTERICAL led all the way to win last start at Randwick and goes down in weight, looks threatening. SWORD OF LIGHT in the money last start running third at Caulfield and has two placings from five runs this prep, in with a chance.

Unibet – Race Comments:

Race 5:
I’M WESLEY (5) Can give a good account here. Should be very competitive and is a genuine threat. SPRIGHTLY LASS (7) Continues to raise the bar and can make their presence felt in this event. Will go well here. DESERT LASHES (10) Worth thought, gets home strongly and this will suit. Each way best. CONCEALER (9) Meeting a handy field here and will have to improve. Place hope.

Race 6:
SOPRESSA (5) Put a gap on the opposition last time out and may do the same here today. Looks the one to beat. SAVACOOL (7) Looks ready to peak in this race. Will be coming home strongly and has strong claims here. ALOISIA (1) May be better suited over this distance. Hasn’t won since last Spring but definitely cannot be dismissed today. THINK BLEUE (4) Looks to possess plenty of upside and can go on with the job here. Each way.

Race 7:
VIDDORA (2) Class runner of the field who can add another Group 1 win to her record. The one to beat. QUILISTA (6) Progressive type with an impeccable record. Strong claims here. SUPER CASH (3) Extremely honest mare who is up to this lot. Each way all day. WHISPERING BROOK (7) This is tougher than last start but a win wouldn’t totally shock. One at a bit of odds.

Race 8:
SAVAPINSKI (1) Previous form looks good for this and likely to have improved since last seen. Big chance again. HUSSTERICAL (11) Strong type who will be suited here. Go close. SEBRING DREAM (9) Solid of late and could threaten. Market watch advised. FRENCH EMOTION (2) Open race and is right in contention. Every chance in this field so watch the finish.

Race 6:
Expert Tips provided by Best Bets
ECUADOR the lone leader and he should be rated to win this. Hyeronimus (19 for 5:2:3 on the horse) knows him back to front by now and is in charge of such things but the thing is, everything else in the race gets back, usually well back and he will be have the chance to totally dominate proceedings. In defeat so far this prep but hard to knock either performance. The knock is clear – he hasn’t won since January 2017 – but when runs in that period include G1 placings and half length defeats to Winx we can forgive that to a large extent. ALWARD happy at this trip and NETTOYER will charge from the back.
Selections 2 4 7 5

Race 7:
Dual acceptor CRAFTY COP has won twice and led on both occasions so I would like to see him making the play. 9 and 1 surely handy. SERENE MISS won the provincial ‘Grand Final’ but is only 4th-up and may still have some work to do in QLD yet. Her only defeat was a total forgive so we can expect her to continue what she’s done so far in this prep. TOUGHERTHANTHEREST joins Waller and has been very honest himself. Should sneak a lovely trail from the inside. That, and a nice trial, could mean he is just fine despite the stable shift and 8 weeks b/t runs.
Selections 7 1 9

Race 8:
Pace from 2, 3, 5, 6 and 12. (Maybe 11 pressing as well??) BASTIA may be on his way to longer trips but is happy at this distance for now. He did start fave in a couple of similar races last prep and should be ready to offer his best 3rd-up. Pretty much ran to his price in the Provincial Final. REFLECTIVITY switched back from success in Victoria and will have options to lead or box-seat from his inside draw. KOOL VINNIE was close to BASTIA at Randwick but probably should have finished further ahead. Wants as much pace in this race as he he can get; it looks as though he will be well set up in that regard.
Selections 7 6 4 3

Race 9:
Wherever CRAFTY COP ends up I’m happy to follow. As mentioned in the R7 overview, when he was won he has led so I would expect him out front here and I hope Avdulla leads at genuine tempo. BON AMIS created a big impression in the off-season. Beaten through the Provincial Championships series but those runs are all good enough to have a big say in this company. I AM SERIOUS (for two trainers) hasn’t done much wrong to this point and her recent trial was very encouraging. Just needs a touch of luck from the inside but can see her getting that. IN TIMES OF WAR…..well, we all know her by now.
Selections 3 6 13 12

Ladbrokes – Race Comments:

Race 6:
NETTOYER only just missed in driving finish last start at Randwick and has three placings from six runs this prep, standout top pick. ECUADOR goes well on a softer track and has placed in two attempts this campaign, place claims. ALWARD trial placing in 28 days since last race adds confidence and has won twice at Rosehill before, needs the breaks. MAURUS goes well on a softer track and placed once this prep at Rosehill, quinella.

Race 7:
Only one real pick to be made. SERENE MISS looking to make it four in a row after another win at Randwick last start, serious player. PEACOCK has won one of three on a softer track, chance to place. BOLERO KING 2 wins from four attempts this campaign but finished eighth last start at Randwick and should race on the speed, not the worst. SPECIAL MISSILE has very strong form at Rosehill and generally races near the speed., place only.

Race 8:
Tread warily in a tricky affair. AWOKE goes well on a softer track and likely to get a nice run behind the speed, has solid claims. ARANCINI rates highly with James Innes Jnr retaining the ride and won once this prep at Warwick Farm two runs back, each-way claims. REFLECTIVITY won at big odds last start at Sandown and three wins from five attempts this campaign, looks threatening. FUEL led throughout for a dominant win last start at Port Macquarie and has the speed to overcome drawing the widest barrier, sneaky chance.

Race 9:
BON AMIS has run well in these conditions and won three of seven as a favourite, genuine contender. I AM SERIOUS resumes after a 27 week spell. Winner of last two at Randwick and Canterbury, could upset. IN TIMES OF WAR short back-up of seven days and placed in four of six at Rosehill before, not without each-way claims. TEST THE WORLD placed last start at Randwick when resuming and has won three times at Rosehill before, needs the breaks.

Unibet – Race Comments:

Race 6:
NETTOYER (7) Honest genuine type. Expect a strong finish as the others tire late on. ECUADOR (2) Not all that far away in previous runs and this trip suits. Winning hope. ALWARD (4) Expect to be right up there and looms as a threat. Big watch. MAURUS (3) Worth watching here and has plenty of upside. Not without a chance.

Race 7:
SERENE MISS (7) Going very strongly lately and well weighted here. Big chance. SPECIAL MISSILE (4) Speedy type. Recent form suggests this is within reach and has a definite chance with benefit of race fitness. HARPER’S CHOICE (2) Looks set to go very close today and definitely one for your exotics. BOLERO KING (5) Sure to figure. Some hope here. Chance at best in this.

Race 8:
TAIKOMOCHI (5) Keeps working to the line and this looks more suitable. Can have an impact. SOLO MISSION (8) Has been handy of late and can hit back hard here. Capable of better. LUCKY FISH (3) Will appreciate this race and is a very good chance of threatening these. FUEL (12) Meeting a tough field and is capable of giving a sight. Trifectas chance.

Race 9:
BON AMIS (6) Great stats in these conditions. This distance is ideal and must be considered. I AM SERIOUS (13) Will be in it for a long way a win here not out of reach. Watch market moves closely. IN TIMES OF WAR (12) Profiles nicely for this although needs the right run. Looks a value runner. MEDAILLE (5) Meeting a tough field and is capable of giving a sight. Trifectas chance.
