Good luck.

Caulfield

6-Open Handicap (1400m)

Best: Travimyfreind – won this track and distance last start.

Others

Ballet Master – third to Travimyfriend latest, well in after the 2kg claim.
Morrissy – won here two starts back, latest finished hard 4th Travimyfriend after getting too far back.

Curragh – drop back in distance and firmer surface, than heavy 8, will help his chances.

Ruben Bleu – ran well here before latest when bogged down in heavy 9. Can get the gun run.

Numbers: 3, 7, 5, 6, 11.

7-Bletchingly Stakes (Group 3, 1200m)

Best: Viridine – chased home Jungle Edge last start on a heavy 8. Has upside and can turn the tables on a better surface.

Others

Jungle Edge – racing well, chances improve if track downgraded to heavy.

I Am Someone – chased hard for 3rd toi Jungle Edge, slightly longer trip in his favour.

Numbers: 4, 1, 6.

8-Open Handicap (2394m)

Best: Sasko – jock went a fraction early last start and was run down. Can only be better for that run and will race on the bunny.

Others

Fanciful Toff – super fit, no threat but kept finding last start and firmer than heavy is a plus.

Double You Tee – not keen on the shorts, but goes in. Lost his spot last week and was too far back, but made ground late without threatening.

Patch Adams – won three starts back, bottled up on the fence latest, roughie, but not the worst.

Numbers: 3, 7, 1, 5.

9-Three-years-Old Handicap (1400m)

Best: Mystery Shot – unbeaten in four starts. Huge win latest. Slow away mustered quickly, took the lead on the turn, hands and heels to the line and eased down.

Others

Wicklow Town – chased Mystery Shot from the home turn, won previous three starts.

Splendoronthegrass – down 4.5kgs after brave 5th to Cordilla, when three wide throughout. Honest filly.

Numbers: 1, 3, 2.

Rosehill

6-Benchmark 70 (1400m)

Best: Travest – jock went to sleep last start when 3rd to Edison. Ran home when the race was over. Still a bit raw, but a nice horse in the making.

Others

Faretti – went out at solid tempo stuck on well for 4th to Edison.

Academy – drops in grade weight rise offset by 3kg claim.

Frosty Rocks – tried hard behind Lewis latest in BM74. Back in trip which is a plus and carries the same weight with form apprentice on board.

Numbers: 3, 8, 2, 1.

7-Quality Handicap (Listed, 1500m)

Best: Dealmaker – great effort finish 4th to Noble Boy. He copped interference a couple of times and despite a tough run showed a lot of fight. Can box-seat here.

Others

Order Again – finished alongside stablemate Dealmaker, flew home when saw daylight, fourth-up peaking.

Noble Boy – had all the favours and didn’t go around a horse to win here, this grade last start.

Sambro – doesn’t win out of turn, but copped severe interference in Noble Boy’s race. Beaten just over 3lens and hard to recover after copping severe interference.

Mugatoo – resuming, trialled okay, and doubt will be wound-up for this, but too good to leave out.

Numbers: 7, 4, 6, 8, 3.

8-Benchmark 88 (1300m)

Best: Prime Candidate – went out hard, three wide, no cover throughout, hit the lead too early and was a very game second.

Others

Poetic Charmer – finished just behind Prime Candidate. Did best work late, longer trip and jockey change are positives.

Outback Diva – tougher here than last start third, but gets in on very light weight after the claim.

True Detective – goes in, but raced every month since January. Didn’t want to be there last start, but Waller-Bowman factor.

Numbers: 2, 4, 9, 1.

9-Benchmark 78 (1100m)

Best: Varda – will be short enough, but won last two and is a highly promising filly.

Others

Minted – showed a brilliant turn of foot when scored a last to first win at Newcastle, after missing the kick a couple of lengths. Big effort and can only be improved.

Zaniah – drops 6kgs after finishing 4 lengths behind Varda last start. Third-up and a firmer surface than heavy is a positive.

Β Partners – won last two including this track and distance latest, lightweight on speed runner.

Numbers: 5, 9, 8, 11.

Doomben

6-Benchmark 90 (1050m)

Best: Defence Missile – finished off well for 3rd Royal Witness. Rain about and loves the cut out of the track.

Others

Tullio – worked through the grades and was narrow winner last start, rails is a plus.

Howwonderfullifeis – smart filly, won prior to last start when put in an average run, but can bounce back.

Cool Sequence – won last two, likes the wet, 3kg claim.

Numbers: 6, 12, 9, 2.

7-Three-Years-Old Handicap (1200m)

Best: Maozi – took on older horses last start. Hampered early, got back wide from the 800m and was a brave 3rd to Shijin.

Others

Better Reflection – didn’t come up last prep’ but showed on track for strong return with strong trial win. Blinkers and rails draw will help.

Kalik – has a wide gate to deal with, but last run was solid and should be close to peak now.

Say Haya – scored easy win in heavy 8 last start. Speedy filly with plenty of ability.

Numbers: 8, 2, 4, 9.

8-No Metro Wins (1350m)

Best: Alderman – will have taken improvement from first-up run (1200m), in the money five starts this track and step-up in distance is a plus.

Others

Ocean Waves – won prior to last start at Sunny Coast, when slow away. Kept finding and was strong on the line.

Nothingforthepress – rails draw will help offset topweight and fitter for first-up 2nd at Grafton in tougher class.

She Za Boss – won last two, mare in form, strong Edmonds stable.

Numbers: 2, 3, 1, 8.

9-Three-Years-Old Hcp (1600m)

Best: Reus – in the money all eight starts, latest won the Grafton Guineas and handles the wet.

Others

Wapiti – gutsy win on home track in Sunshine Coast Guineas. Drops from that Group 3 win, but rises 4kgs.

Love Express – stablemate of Wapiti and was third to that horse in the Guineas and meets it 5.5kgs better.

Roman Aureus – on the quick back-up after Ipswich 3rd (1350m) last week. Gives the impression he is looking for the mile, races well here.

Numbers: 5, 2, 8, 11, 7.
