Race 1

6 Major Sass: Did a very good job last season in behind and around some smart types. Stronger now. Must have.

7 Rockabilly Blues: Another fresh up after making some big strides last season. Should be in for a good summer.

2 Bridesdale Robyn: Only going to be better for the first up run which was strong enough. Has to be a chance today.

1 Tact Eze: Never got into from a tricky spot last week. Better suited here and maiden win was very good.

Selections: 6-7-2-1

Race 2

10 Kickupyaheels: Still learning what it’s all about at the moment but good in a red hot field last week. Surely today.

8 Princess Jessie: Trial and workout form is solid enough. Breeding suggests she should be good. Have her in.

3 Princess Danica: Huge respect for the stable any time they venture to this part of the world. Trials have been ok.

5 Mila Kunis: Looked a little unlucky last week when devoid of clear air. This is a better field but place chances good.

Selections: 10-8-3-5

Race 3

6 Kramer: Has hit the line with real purpose in both of the last two starts. Knocking on the door and goes close today.

9 Touche: Turned the form around with a solid second on Thursday night. Needs luck but definitely a player.

2 Ideal Glacier: Better for the fresh up run last week when finishing sixth. Drawn well and should be near to it.

7 Hans Ideal: Doesn’t win them out of turn, but does have a good turn of foot when saved for one. Dangerous late?

Selections: 6-9-2-7

Race 4

3 Stingray Tara: Won with a bit of authority last week. Drawn to find the front again and can repeat with same effort.

14 American Mac: Not getting a lot in the luck department at the moment, but can win this if it comes his way.

13 Paduka: Racing really well and will keep coming at them. Has to do some work, but that’s not a problem.

12 Prince Abbey: Nice type back from a spell and good workout form. Can get a bit of it in a fresh state.

Selections: 3-14-13-12

Race 5

7 Mongolian Cavalry: Massive effort when fresh at Addington. Needs to step away, but with that is hard to beat.

4 Norman Richards: Nice type who hasn’t had a lot of luck. Could jump and run here and give them a bit of a fright.

9 Paddyproudfoot: Under rated wee pacer with a wicked turn of foot. No surprise to see him run a good one here.

11 Franco Santino: Nice workout to tidy up for this. Handy type with lots of speed but giving a couple a start.

Selections: 7-4-9-11

Race 6

7 Majestic Man: Very good fresh up last week and only going to be better for it. Big handicap, but can overcome it.

8 Dark Horse: Forgotten trotter back from injury. Huge motor but will probably need one or two. Dangerous.

5 Robbie Royale: Can’t fault his form at the moment. Trotting big and bold and competitive here too.

6 Monty Python: Consistent staying type performances are getting him fit for bigger assignments. Place chance here.

Selections: 7-8-5-6

Race 7

6 Lawrence: Big run fresh up to finish second. Really burst through the gap. Only better for it and hard to roll today.

4 Pembrook Playboy: Looks to have come back very well this time in based on fresh up win. Can go on with it.

9 Just Wondering: Fresh up from astute stable and nice trial. Can get a slice here in first run for the season.

2 Hampton: Not much went right fresh up. Talented enough though and can give this a good shake from handy draw.

Selections: 6-4-9-2

Race 8

10 Spur To Action: Matty jumps back in the bike and a turn around is expected today. Even field but good chance.

11 Alpine Retreat: Manners left behind last week but maiden win was dominant. Cross everything early on.

13 Rydegmont Son: Talented, but manners always a concern. Could easily show up and deliver a big blow to them.

8 Justan’s Sister: In great form and trotting very solidly. Sure to get away and give a good account again here.

Selections: 10-11-13-8

Race 9

10 Major Watson: Has looked every bit a horse of the future in workouts and trials. Destined for better things.

2 Forsure: Nicely bred type who has been solid in workouts and trials and comes up with a good draw.

9 See Ya Write: Handy enough trials and workouts form ahead of todays resumption. Keep an eye on him.

11 Undercover Mac: Hit the line strongly last time out and will only be better for that run. Can get some of this.

Selections: 10-2-9-11

Race 10

7 Swift Robyn: In good form and hitting the line really well at the moment. This looks a bit easier too. Right in it.

13 Tairlaw Toll: Two good runs since resuming from the spell and although drawn poorly is still a good hope.

11 Rosinupthebow: On the quick back up from Thursday night where solid once again. Has to be a good hope.

1 Black Ops: In good nick at the moment and comes up with a good draw for this assignment. Each way hope.

Selections: 7-13-11-1

BEST: 10 Major Watson (Race 9)

NEXT: 7 Majestic Man (Race 6)

VALUE: 3 Stingray Tara (Race 4)
