Full preview and tips for Thursday’s main meeting

Hazards: 1. Lord of the Hunter It was honest last preparation at the metropolitan level, and his figure peak came in this track / distance. He has since been gelded, has racing experience and is ready to race well. 2. Access he ran time in his last test win at Gosford, and can improve with Hugh Bowman riding. 6. Wrapped tested well enough on the synthetic and the winks continue for race day. 13. Moon rocks has natural gate speed and 4. Convincing truth will also advance.

How to play it: Diamond City E/W.

Odds and Pairs: ODD.

Race 3 – 2:25 pm SHARP OFFICE MAIDEN HANDICAP (1200 METERS)

Open maiden. 1. Strombus He was constant and improved throughout his preparation last season. Also, before being spelled out, he ran wide and did one of the fastest 200m finals of the entire meeting in 11:23 at Kensington. The three-year-old gelding resumes after two solid tests in which he has been strong through the line under light driving in both series. He is set to have all the favours, he is wet tested and Hugh Bowman is riding for the first time.

Hazards: 8. Mystic Mermaid he’s a nice guy who won a predominantly synthetic test in preparation for this assignment. The lightweight three-year-old filly had to put in a long, sustained run in her debut race at Wyong when she ran the fastest last 600m of the meeting in 34.17 with a gap to third.

6. Bionics it’s the potential upgrader coming off a strong time race and getting the flashing lights for the first time. 7. Fearsome is tested on wet ground and 11. Dubai Showgirl it’s a coup de grace.

How to play it: Strombus WINS.

Odds and Pairs: PULL APART.

Race 4 – 3:05 pm NEW ZEALAND BLOOD MAIDEN PLATE (1870 METERS)

Open maiden and D-day for 10.Wolfburn. The three-year-old gelding gets an ideal race set-up coming out of the time/section merit races, all the prep and is in rock shape. He had no peace during the last start at Hawkesbury 16 days ago when he was trying to get to the line. Bjorn Baker’s Gallop has a strong starting price/figures profile relative to his rivals and expects another aggressive ride.

Hazards: 14. Poaching Island he comes out of the same race and maybe he was too close in the last start. The three-year-old filly seemed to have every chance, but she had to run her through the lower ground and struggled to get away from her. 11. Milka he ran second up in the last outing after being well backed $6.00-$4.00 at the end of the betting. The four-year-old mare is able to recover and receives an older rider. 8.Spitfire brings metropolitan form and a positive map. 12. Rangitikei is set to peak third.

How to play it: Wolfburn WINS.

Odds and Pairs: EVENTS.

Race 5 – 15:40 WHOLESALE RARITY BENCHMARK 64 HANDICAP (1870 METERS)

4. Star performer he has come back well in this preparation, after riding very fresh to win at this track and then falling too far behind in the big field at Rosehill 12 days ago. She ran the fastest 400m-200m split of the race at 11.76 and was solid down the line. The four-year-old mare is downgraded from a metropolitan midway and she settles for third place at 1870m on the provincial circuit.

Dangers: 11. Company The he ran second in the Group 3 Kembla Grange Classic and can bounce back in adversity. 2. Sacramento Joe he was well ridden to win the last start at Gosford albeit 40 days ago. 8. Dr Evil and 7. Hemsworth They are rock hard fitting.

How to play it: Star Artist WIN.

Odds and Pairs: PULL APART.

Race 6 – 16:20 RED FUNNEL CLASS 1 HANDICAP (1600 METERS)

7. A thousand years he strayed too far in first place and didn’t adjust to a slow pace at Goulburn 30 days ago, but he ran hard in one of the fastest final 200m splits of the entire meeting in 11.87. He drifted in the betting there and he is likely to improve, and the form of that race has since been confirmed with three subsequent winners. The three-year-old filly has an odd drawing, but as she showed in the second prep above, she can get over a poor barrier and use her key asset in acceleration to run over it. In addition, she will be more fit, she will adapt to the rain and the step up to 1600 m is ideal.

Hazards: 6. Eye to Eye represents the value that is set to reach the third peak. The three-year-old comes out on top of the same race as Thousand Years, where he honestly finished fourth. He then went to Hawkesbury 16 days ago, and his race was credited with sitting off the lead at a fast pace and working his way to the line. Also, that race was rated highly relative to the day, and an aggressive ride is expected with the gelding reaching peak fitness. 3. Backup maps to have all the favors and be able to improve again. 2. Aton Of Delight and 9. Traveling Kate are knockout opportunities.

How to play it: A THOUSAND YEARS WIN AND EYES TO EYES WIN.

Odds and Pairs: PULL APART.

Race 7 – 4:55PM WILD POLYTRACK PROVINCIAL CHAMPIONSHIP (1400 METERS)

14. Pipali I had a lot to do first on this track/distance 14 days ago. The four-year-old mare came back strong after two solid trials and ran strong, running the second fastest final 400m of the entire meeting in 22.12. He has excellent form lines to a stronger degree around Promise Of Success and Vangelic. The Jason Coyle-trained galloper will have everything to do from the wide box, but she is well-weighted in race conditions and has multiple figures that can put her across the finish line.

Hazards: d-day for 2. Sammy but he can be forgiven for all his careers this preparation where nothing has gone well with factors against him. He has a strong starting price profile relative to some of his rivals and expects an aggressive ride from Dylan Gibbons. The four-year-old gelding represents value, and all of his top performances have come at his local track. 16. Daphne Jean receives a significant barrier change and can settle closer to the kindergarten lottery. 10. confessed it was raced to suit the last winning start at Eagle Farm, but he is very fit and Hugh Bowman is riding. 15. Oakfield Arrow It’s a knockout hope.

How to play it: Pippali WINS and Sammy WINS.

Odds and Pairs: EVENTS.

Race 8 – 17:30 TAB VENUE MODE CLASS 1 HANDICAP (1200 METERS)

8. Super Extreme he was impressive on his debut as he crouched down hard during the final furlong to win in commanding fashion and run fast. That race earned the highest overall rating relative to the meeting when comparing time, class and additional factors historically. Additionally, the three-year-old ran the fastest 600m final section of the entire meeting with 34.91. He looks best in long distances and big sweat suits. Tyler Schiller can go up to 1200m and use the colt’s fitness advantage relative to his rivals. Also, his latest output figure is higher than his rivals.

Dangers: 3. Banana Queen is a lightweight race improver returning after two solid tests. He ran fast gaining time on Rosehill’s last set-up and then immediately spelled it out. Gerald Ryan and Sterling Alexiou’s training partnership is famous for having its riders ready to go first, and she is a key observer of the market. 11. Thalassophile was on the verge of winning first place at Gosford 19 days ago, but peaked in her career after being highly regarded. She will have to get through the tricky draw, but she will be fitter and the running suits bigger. 1. Why Big Bryan? is the probable leader and in 9. MasqueradeThe best way she can imagine.

How to play it: Super Extreme WIN.

Odds and Pairs: PULL APART.

Best bet: Race 1 #1 – One Way Street.
Next best: Race 8 #8 – Super Extreme.
Best value: Carrera 6 #6 – Eyes To Eye & #7 – Mil Años.
