Race 1

4 Meoldy’s Mischief: Beaten by the one on his back on the first day. Likely to roll forward here, find the front and should be too good for them.

1 Her Majesty: Not setting the world on fire and probably should have done a little better on day one. No extra work required here though so in the mix.

6 Westburn Bliss: Really hit the line well on the first day. Small field gives a decent chance if able to find the back of the right one.

3 Speciale Uno: Another really good effort on the first day, just beaten by the draw. Should be a lot closer to the action today.

Selections: 4-1-6-3


Race 2

8 Rain Mist And Muscle: Handled patiently and only succumbed late to a handy one on the first day. After that effort has to be the one to beat here today.

5 Mono Gamble: We’ll go again, was going to get the dream trip on the first day until galloping on the first bend. Heart in your mouth stuff, but can win with manners.

6 Dreamsinthe Mist: Not really what you wanted to see on Friday when galloping early. Has a motor though and you’d expect a step up here today with the experience.

4 Gotta Ticket: Was going to get right into it before he galloped on Friday. Manners the key, but good enough to win a maiden race like this.

Selections: 8-5-6-4


Race 3

2 Mark O’Ronga: Didn’t shirk the challenge after working to up outside the leader on Day One. Should get there a little easier today and a big chance based on that effort.

4 Cambire: Nice effort to hit the line strongly on the first day to finish second. Better draw here and a small field is a bit assist. Can get a good slice of the action.

9 Scared Stiff: Pulled his block off in front on the first day so actually did well to finish as close as he did. Better, relaxed mannerisms today and he’s not the worst.

1 Fernleigh Colleen: Grabs another really good draw and the stand start manners are excellent. Can ping, be on the speed and give some cheek late with half a chance.

Selections: 2-4-9-1


Race 4

1 Jimmy Arma: Will have taken a lot of benefit out of the debut run. Draws one over the sprint trip and might get an easier time of it today so should be the one to beat.

6 Kenya: Did it tough but kept fighting well for third on day one. Going to get a maiden soon, just needs things to fall into place here.

2 He’s A Flyin: Given every chance on the first day and did well to finish fourth. Small field an assist and might just jump straight onto the back of the #1 here.

8 Taumalolo: Not too bad on Day One after getting back. Not a deep field outside of the top couple so with a few things going his way can certainly get into the placings.

Selections: 1-6-2-8


Race 5

10 Kacie Cullen: Ran well better than the odds reflected for second on Day One. Same draw here and similar trip looks in the offering. Can win it with the right gaps.

1 Donegal Carnbouy: Not too bad on the first day when scooting up the lane for third. Nice draw here and might look to make the most of it. Can give some cheek.

5 Madiba: Worked to the lead and kept them solid on Friday only to succumb late. Going forward again? Has to be in if that’s the case.

4 All Nuts N Bolts: Better for the fresh run on Friday and likely to be driven positively today from the good draw. Can grind his way to success here with any luck.

Selections: 10-1-5-4


Race 6

5 Shezsomethingspecial: Spotted putting in some big strides from a long way back late in the piece on Friday. Mobile an assist and that speed could turn things around here.

3 Givemewhatineed: Good effort off the second row on the first day to finish second. Likely to try and find the markers here and if he rolls along, then look out.

1 Hands Up Jack: Thought he was solid on the first day. Might end up on the back of the leader here and therefore looks a very good place option.

7 Rockahula Joe: Doubt they’ll be looking for the front again today after the effort told on Friday. Might be better with a sit and dangerous late if the right run pans out.

Selections: 5-3-1-7


Race 7

12 One Majic Kenny: Looked derived of any room at all late in proceedings on Friday after getting a long way back following a gallop. Better manners here? Wins if so.

15 Great Things Happen: Will strip a little fitter for Friday’s effort. Spotted putting in some big work late to finish sixth. Has to be considered, even off the big mark.

14 Overzealous: She would have finished a lot closer on Friday but just got held up at all the wrong times. Quiet trip and one go at them her go, potent if close enough.

6 Idle Stuartia: Drove late only to just come up short on the first day. Has to be considered a strong each way chance once again with any luck.

Selections: 12-15-14-6


Race 8

5 Kendra: Too good for most of these from a good trip on the first day. Mobile evens things up a bit, but Orange in the bike will mean the right spots are found. Can win again.

4 Yorkshire: Got a few things wrong on the first day. Might go searching from the handy draw here today. Seems to race very well in front and a big chance if able to get there.

9 Change Is Good: Dour pacer who wasn’t too bad from a good trip on the first day. Loves the short course and has to be a live each way hope with any luck.

1 Taxman: Been disappointing, but might try and cut the ribbons here making for fireworks early. Own terms on top and allowed to feel big and brave and he could win it.

Selections: 5-4-9-1


Race 9

6 Shadow Phantasy: Even Stevie Wonder would have spotted the work coming out wide late on Friday. Draw means perhaps driven a little more confidently today and therefore should win.

1 Dana Dawn: Good manners led to a nice trip and a good effort on the first day. Headed that way again from the inside draw and has to be an each way player.

4 Golden Lace: Spotted putting in some big work late in the piece on Friday to get that close. A little more luck here and things might just turn right around.

9 Loissonya: On speed runner who could cross them early here, find the right kind of trip and keep them honest late. Big step up from maidens, but often it can be the turning point.

Selections: 6-1-4-9


Race 10

10 Southerly Change: Orange sticks with the ship and he had a few choices. That’s a good sign. Emphatic on the first day and just needs clear air at the right time to make it happen again.

5 Laver: Brave effort in defeat again on the first day. Likely to roll forward here once again and try to keep them honest throughout the sprint journey.

6 Soundslikeart: Driving her cold seems to work best for her, she’s been potent late in her last two. Can sit off them and have one crack and pull off the victory.

9 Jazelle: The local cops the visitors draw after her good effort to win on Friday. Don’t dismiss her today, she’s in great form and can certainly fill a top four spot.

Selections: 10-5-6-9


BEST: 1 Jimmy Arma (Race 4)

NEXT: 4 Melody’s Mischief (Race 1)

VALUE: 5 Shezsomethingspecial (Race 6)
