Race Summary: Good opening event. ON MY MIND has run close up in all 3 starts to date and will make a bold bid. STEAK AND ALE enjoyed the mile last time and should hold TIGER’S ROCK and MAGIC VISION who are not out of contention for minor money. VASEEM wasn’t disgraced on debut and the mile should be more to his liking. Look for improvement from INCANTATION.

Race Summary: FLAGSHIP FUND was runner-up in her last 2 and could go one better. DIORAMA got lost early on debut and will know more about it now over a better distance. ESCAPE TO VICTORY never kicked last time but is better than that. ANNATJIE claims 4kg and should confirm with BAT ORCHID as well as SAUSALITO. IRISH DAME will improve on debut while NAZARETH and FLAMING OPAL could earn.

Race Summary: ARABIAN AIR was narrowly beaten in her first local run and should contest the finish over the same track and trip. CROWN GUARDIAN won well last time and looks sure to improve more. COMANECI has ability and could resume winning ways. FLASH BURN is holding form and could follow up. He is coupled with TIERRA DEL FUEGO who could take home a cheque.

RUBY DANCER claims 1,5kg and should be at peak fitness now and could confirm with stable companion HAREER, however, the latter could be stable elect with Lyle aboard.
