Race 4, No. 2: SILENT TRYST

She’s a very promising filly who hasn’t run worse than second from five starts and it’s hard to see her getting beat if she holds her form from her last win.


Race 1, No. 6: WEDGED

Wedged is a debutant who comes into this off a five-length trial win. He’s in the hands of the leading stable and should be putting in a positive run.


Race 2 No. 10: Sublime Lady

She gets a much better gate than the favourite here and she looks to have come back a better horse off a lovely trial.


Race 5: 3, 8, 9, 11

Race 6: 1, 3, 4, 6

Race 7: 2, 5

Race 8: 5, 9

Brett Cavanough has a big team running here today and Wedged, Sublime Lady, My Sister Carole and Street Power all have winning claims.


Doncaster Mile-winning jockey James Innes Jr can have a day out on Teverina, Chief Kidder, Lovetheinvasion, Annyidea and Majestic Wings.



Wedged won his trial by more than five lengths heading into his debut run and it looked good even if he had to be shaken up and given one crack with the whip to surge away. Croesus was also given a slap with the whip in its winning trial but ran home a touch slower than Wedged. Goofy Mick was pushed out to win a trial when ridden off the speed which might be a new tactic after leading at his two runs without success last time in. If Gattling Gun runs he’ll be an improver off a good debut second.

Bet: Wedged to win


Sweet Ruby has got the wide gate to deal with but looks to have the gate speed to be handy and she drops back in grade and trip which are both positives. Costa Del Mar got too far back last time after starting poorly. She can’t afford to do it this time from the inside draw or she’ll have too many bums in front of her. Sublime Lady returns from a spell with a good gate and strong trial under her belt for the region’s top trainer. Waterhead’s trial suggest she’ll perform on debut at decent odds.

Bet: Sublime Lady each way

Casirina looks ready to do well here fourth-up. He was unlucky not to qualify for the Country Championships Final two runs ago. He’s going to run this right out and come at them late from a handier position now that he’s drawn well. Nothing’s Sacred will be in front of Casirina at the home turn and prove hard to catch after winning in strong fashion over a mile last start to suggest a little more ground won’t bother him. Chief Kidder should push forward and find this easier than running in town last time and he’s two from two at the track.

Bet: Quinella 1, 3


Silent Tryst is a promising horse who won easy in this grade last time and it’s hard to see her running outside the top three as long as she runs the trip out which should be a problem. Adios Steve has run second at his past two including last start at the provincials and he will run out 1500m very strongly and he’s undefeated here from two attempts. Momack will also like the distance even if he’s going from 1200m to 1500m second-up and the apprentice’s weight relief gives him his chance. Lovetheinvasion couldn’t have done better on debut.

Bet: Silent Tryst to win

Annyidea has a wide gate but if she slots in with cover she can produce late off what we saw last start at Gosford when she was very strong late. She’s ready to win with luck. Trumped Up gets a cushy run and beat all but a very promising type last start at his first NSW run. Toguchi has put in two trials to be ready for this and she’s got previous form behind Fender and raced well fresh at her only run last time in so take her on trust.

Bet: Annyidea to win


Chevconi produced an eye-catcher last time over 1100m after getting way too far back. The extra ground here gives him a better hope. My Sister Carole has had the blinkers taken off and she’s a nice on-pacer who get every hope from a good draw and she’s ready for her first trip to 1200m. Kislina didn’t quite trial as well as the two Australian Bloodstock horses that finished in front of her but they were more than handy types and she’s got the ear muffs on pre-race to keep her calm for her first NSW run. Keen Contributer has run in town twice early on so the opinion of her must be good.

Bet: My Sister Carole to win

Temple One looks hard to beat first-up for trainer Paul Messara. Photo: Grant GuySource:The Daily Telegraph


Temple One goes well fresh and has the ability to sit off the speed from a wide draw and threaten late. His lead-up trial was pretty impressive. If he gets a touch of luck he’s the one to beat. Magic On Ice shoots for three-straight wins today and his good gate will only help his attractive racing pattern. He has to be in the finish as long as the heavy track win didn’t flatten him. So Good To Me has been freshened to come back in trip and she’s the one to watch late.

Bet: Temple One to win


Ceasefire won by six lengths on debut and that maiden wasn’t the weakest so he might just be pretty good. He does have a wide gate now which is going to make punters nervous considering they’re set to send him out as an odds-on favourite. Street Power looks the main danger from only a slightly better gate. He won his maiden at the provincials in good fashion on debut before aa let-up and his winning trial was impressive so he’s the one that will present good value. Satin Ruby was good for his new stable and she’s will be strong late.

Bet: Quinella 5, 9
