Race 5

Not a lot of natural pace here, SO FEESABLE can lead from inside. GEORGIE’S LUCE may come over from wide out.

STEP THE PEDAL , CHEMISTRY and GEORGIE’S LUCE all come out of the same CRAN race, where STEP THE PEDAL was the best run for mine.

Betting play: STEP THE PEDAL (rated $3.40) is the horse to beat, only interested in being on it if odds allow.

Race 6

Speculative map with all but KAWABATA and WHINCUP generally settling midfield to back.

A race for 64B stayers isn’t normally a great betting race. Not a lot of value in early markets. Happy to sit out.

Betting play: No interest. YOUL DASH FOR CASH and ELEKTRA LASS are equal top-raters.

Race 7

Not a lot of pace on paper, LANDSLIDE looks to lead easily and MR PAGO comes over from deep. Rest naturally settle midfield to back.

LANDSLIDE was goood at WNBL returning good figure than had no peace in front last time before been cut down on line. Horse to beat. Happy to risk NAME THE DAY long time since it’s won. Have rated MR PAGO and TIPS AND BEERS to their best. ONCIDIUM RULER resumes off long spell and looks to get back. PENNY TO SELL is honest and gets Williams on.

Betting play: Keen on LANDSLIDE (rated $2.40), something on PENNY TO SELL (rated $9.00) as well.

Race 8

Good pace here with HEZA RIPPER, PAKAYA PRINCE and EQUINOVA racing handy from the inside and OSCAR’S MY MATE PA, PRIME ACE, KISS THE STARS, LEODORO coming over from wider.

Wide open race to finish the meeting. HEZA RIPPER ran well two runs ago then not suited at ‘bool, has been freshened up and has blinkers on. Won 1st two starts on wet ground. LEODORO won comfortably 1st up at PAKM with inexperienced jock on, comes here 2nd up with Oliver on, has a big figure 1st up this prep that it can repeat here. PAKAYA PRINCE, PRINCE TARKEIDA, KISS THE STARS all have some claims.

Betting play: wide open race happy to speck any decent overs.
