LEAPING LEO (3) is having his 3rd run back from a break in this. Last time out he went down narrowly to SUPREME BANNER when trying to lead all of the way. Stripping fitter this looks a nice race for him.
PEGGY STARDUST (1) draws the inside of the front row here. Her last start effort behind OUR RIDGY DIDGE was a good pointer for a race like this. She looks a danger.
ASHLEY NITRO (8) broke through for her maiden win here 2 starts back. Last start had to work hard in the run when down the track behind SUPREME BANNER. From the draw she should be considered.
LIGHTHORSE (5) has a tricky draw to contend with but with luck in running he can place.
SELECTIONS: LEAPING LEO (3), PEGGY STARDUST (1), ASHLEY NITRO (8), LIGHTHORSE (5)
SUGGESTED BET: LEAPING LEO (3) to win
BETTERTHANSPRAYING (1) is first up from New Zealand for Narissa McMullen. Last start she finished 2nd at Winton. From the draw she looks hard to beat here.
SIGNORINA JUJON (3) is having her 2nd run back from a break. Last start she produced an eye catcher coming from well back in the field to narrowly go down to FORTES IN FIDE. She will benefit from the run and from the good draw she looks a danger.
BILLBOARD BONNIE (2) has been thereabouts of late she just hasn’t had a lot of luck. From the better draw she is in the mix
GOLD REACTOR (8) is another horse that hasn’t had much luck lately. He hasn’t been far away his last 2 starts. From the better draw he is a chance.
SELECTIONS: BETTERTHANSPRAYING (1), SIGNORINA JUJON (3), BILLBOARD BONNIE (2), GOLD REACTOR (8)

AMILLION PROMISES (10) was an impressive winner here this track and trip last start in a final half of 57.7 when coming from back in the field. That was his 4th run back from a break. If he gets some luck in transit he can repeat the dose
HEEZ PERFECT (6) comes up with a poor draw here. At his latest outing he had to work in the run over the longer trip behind CAPTAIN COSMONAUT. Getting back to the mile which is his preferred distance he looks a major player with even luck.
FORTES IN FIDE (5) was a winner here last time out having its first start for the Kylie Rasmussen stable. The win was full of merit having to sit parked. He may have to work again here but isn’t without a chance.
TRENTLEIGH (1) lands a good draw here and with options can be competitive.
SELECTIONS: AMILLION PROMISES (1), HEEZ PERFECT (6), FORTES IN FIDE (5), TRENTLEIGH (1)
SUGGESTED BET: AMILLION PROMISES (1) to win
SIR TIGER (9) looks a promising conveyance from New Zealand having his first run for trainer Al Barnes. He was winner of 2 from his last 5 races in NZ. If he is ready to go this looks a good race for him to score win number 1 in Australia.
JOVIAL JULIE (3) is first up here. A winner of 5 races and placed on 6 other occasions there is no doubt she is a very consistent customer. Her form last preparation was good. She looks a definite danger here from the draw.
JUST ONE GOOD ONE (7) is a winner of 2 of his last 4 starts. The draw is tricky but with even luck can figure.
THE HUMMER (6) is lightly raced colt by Hurrikane Kingcole only having the 3 starts. He has won 2 of those starts and placed in the other. He has the wide draw to overcome although looks a talented type and shouldn’t be left out.
SELECTIONS: SIR TIGER (9), JOVIAL JULIE (3), JUST ONE GOOD ONE (7), THE HUMMER (6)
SUGGESTED BET: SIR TIGER (5) to win
TOMMY UNDER FIRE (3) has been in great form of late. Last start he defeated CARDLESFROMHEAVEN in a mile rate of 1:55.7 for the 2138 metre trip. He looks hard to stop again.
SPEEDY MCARDLE (2) draws his best gate for some time here. He likes to get nice and handy to the action which he gets his chance to do here. He can figure in the finish
AQUA MISS (8) has been racing well without much luck. She lands a good trailing draw here and will be aiming for the gaps when they appear.
BEEF CITY BLAZE (1) was a winner here 2 starts ago from the exact same draw. There looks to be early pressure so he will have to hustle to hold a spot. He can be prominent again if he doesn’t have burn too hard early.
SELECTIONS: TOMMY UNDER FIRE (3), SPEEDY MCARDLE (2), AQUA MISS (8), BEEF CITY BLAZE (1)
SUGGESTED BET: TOMMY UNDER FIRE (3) to win
SPECIAL RESERVE (2) has had 3 runs back from a break and each of those runs have been solid. She should be nearing peak fitness now and is coming out of some strong races. She looks to get her chance to return to the winner’s circle
CHERRYS THE BEST (3) is a handy mare first up from a break here. She was a winner here 4 runs ago in a mile rate of 1:54.5. Her last few runs before a spell were full of merit. She is a definite danger.
SIT DOWN WALTER (8) is another first up from a break. He has some solid form in NSW next to his name. He can figure from the handy draw
RAGING INFERNO (5) has been racing well of late. He finished 3rd here 2 starts back behind GETARATTLEON when having to work in the run. He may have to do work again from the draw but is going well enough to feature.
SELECTIONS: SPECIAL RESERVE (2), CHERRYS THE BEST (3), SIT DOWN WALTER (8), RAGING INFERNO (5)
SUGGESTED BET: SPECIAL RESERVE (2) to win
ONLY IN ROME (2) lands a good draw for him. He wasn’t far away last start behind CLASSIE AMERICAN in a slick mile rate. He will be looking to find the front off the arm here and will take plenty of catching.
PINUP BOY (7) has the outside of the front row to contend with here but has been competing in some strong company of late. He did defeat TENNYSON BROMAC here 4 starts back. He may push forward from the draw and race handy. He will be in it for a long way.
PAY ME INTEREST (4) hasn’t had much luck her last 3 starts. Prior to those she was placed on 2 occasions in some quality mare races here at Albion Park. If she gets some luck she can figure
SPRINGFIELD SPIRIT (8) has been racing well of late. He will enjoy a good trip from the draw and can fill the placings.
SELECTIONS: ONLY IN ROME (2), PINUP BOY (7), PAY ME INTEREST (4), SPRINGFIELD SPIRIT (8)
SUGGESTED BET: ONLY IN ROME (2) to win
GETARATTLEON (2) is in fine form of late. He was a winner here 2 starts back and last start was brave in defeat behind CLASSIE AMERICAN. He can roll forward here and looks mighty hard to beat.
CAESARS ASTRUM (1) has been racing well of late. Working hard in the run here 2 starts back went down narrowly to TANYAS PAST and last start had to work early before finding the front going down narrowly to UNDERTHEKILT. The draw suits here and she should be somewhere in the mix.
LANCEALOT BROMAC (6) faces another wide draw here but was a winner over this distance 3 runs ago working in the run from the wide draw. His last 2 have been over the mile, getting back to the 2138 metres journey here will allow him to slide forward at less expense. He will be thereabouts.
CAPTAIN COSMONAUT (8) was a winner here last time out. He draws to get a good trip and isn’t out of this.
SELECTIONS: GETARATTLEON (2), CAESARS ASTRUM (1), LANCEALOT BROMAC (6), CAPTAIN COSMONAUT (8)
SUGGESTED BET: GETARATTLEON (2) to win
An open race here to end the day. HOLY CAMP CLIVE (10) is a classy customer who has been taking on some of our states best pacers his last few starts. Two runs back was only 2.6 metres away from TENNYSON BROMAC. He has also been meeting the likes of MAJOR CAM and NORTHVIEW HUSTLER recently. If he gets some luck from the draw he will be hard to beat.
BRADS LUCK (4) is racing in great touch at present. He was a winner here in 1:54.2 over the mile last start. He receives a good draw here and will be figuring somewhere in the finish.
MACHEASY (7) is first up from a break here. Last preparation he had some good form on the board. The draw is no luxury but he is a handy type and can feature in a race like this.
WITHALOTOFLUCK (2) has been around the money of late and with even luck can place.
SELECTIONS : HOLY CAMP CLIVE (10), BRADS LUCK (4), MACHEASY (7), WITHALOTOFLUCK (2)
