a path: good 4. Railroad: TRUE

Race 1

Summary: Zoukerette is the daughter of I Am Invincible’s VRC Desicious Stakes winner Walk With Attitude, whose other offspring is Rosebud and Group 3 Spend winner Zoukerino. In an $800,000 buyout, young Maher/Eustace had two experiences and appeared to be in both. Diabelli ran in an even race on his debut at Flemington’s famous Maryburnung Plate on Cup day. Basically, he comes home and down in class on Saturday with a great draw.

Betting tip: Zoukerette to win

Race 2

Summary: James MacDonald’s levy has brought the price of the Color Sargeant down somewhat, but to be fair, the Matthew Smith-trained horse has some compelling numbers and is ready for battle so far in the campaign. Jack Duggan scores a hat-trick after two fast-paced wins, albeit in much easier races than this one. Kim Waugh’s former Kiwi mare has been on an upward trajectory since her arrival in Wyong and will be making the trip right away.

Betting tip: Color sergeant to win

Race 3

Summary: Miss Kirribilli is a proven highway performer with an impressive resume of two wins and three seconds from her five starts. He has In-Form player Tyler Schiller in good shape. Soso is the easy-going and useful son of the Group 1 winner Macedonian Lady. J-Mac’s main reservation here. Having said that, Imatruestar has done some good things in his 13 starts, and has ridden like a horse ready and able to make his presence felt.

Betting tip: Imatruestar in every direction, Kinela 5,7

Race 4

Summary: Tony B got one of the rides of the season so far when he won at Rosehill midweek that day. This is what a horse can do when it’s out in the fresh air and there’s some speed ahead. Floating is the great unknown here; Untapped is probably the best word because we already know that it is a type of brainstorming of great proportions. It’s great to see how he’s progressing in this company. Global Ausbred started preparations with a fourth finish ($201) in Silver Eagle and were runner-up in their next group – one behind Waterford no less.

Betting tip: Tony B to win

Race 5

Summary: Tough race due to the fact that we have so many internal and talented showdown horses. Equal-favorites Coco Rox and Winning Verse are in similar stages of their current campaign with more favorable offerings, indeed, to please (note the plural). Verse won the tie for best of the two. This looks like a very fast sprint race which plays to the strengths of Monte Ditto who is racing very well in the Rosehill 1100m. None of the 14’s on the good tracks is a concern.

Betting tip: Monte Ditto in every direction

Race 6

Summary: Dream Runner has a massive benchmark rating of 97, a number that’s not on the way down, in fact, with wins in two of its last three, it’s heading for triple digits. He is, by all accounts, the best-performing horse in classic country racing; He couldn’t see many of his rivals coming close to winning the Wagga Cup. Prost was outpacing a lesser competitor ahead of last Sunday’s possibly inconclusive Tare Cup round. I wouldn’t fire her for it but she has to run the six day race of her life in order to win. not impossible.

Betting tip: Dream runner to win, Proust to place

Race 7

Summary: Steely has been shredding this campaign and may be getting some rewards for the effort put in this weekend. He seems to be a good influence on his talent-to-kilogram ratio and has the strength that should be perfect for him. French import Chris Waller’s Longvillers came from last to be beaten under three lengths by Ellsberg at Five Diamonds. Draw 11 of 11 that day and draw 17 of 17 here. Three words of the rebel Rama “Keep the faith”. You will win one soon.

Betting tip: Rama rebelled in every direction

Race 8

Summary: The horse formerly known as Landfall in Ireland and Rose High in Hong Kong is now ridden by Sunshine Rising in Australia. He has been the talk of the trials since he arrived from Hong Kong. Mark Newnham is a genius with imports no matter where they come from or how old they are. Mirra Vision has won seven races from 27 starts which is a totally noteworthy and honorable strike rate. She nearly won Group 1 last time in Empire Rose, and was close to Tristarc and Golden Pendant before that. She just can’t draw an alley in this campaign.

Betting tip: Sunrise to win

Race 9

Summary: The winner of the former County Championship Final across The Cracks ran a very good race after the long break in the choir at Randwick on Big Dance Day. He’s won three of his five second-place finishes and if they’re over that, he can ambush them all late on. Dragonstone will be the ultimate and primary beneficiary of the fast-running Starlight Stakes. He just needed a few extra inches and may have won last week’s Warra race. My star has been distinguished by quality and luxury since day one.

Betting tip: through slits in every direction

Race 10

Summary: recognition time. I was wrong about Festival Dancer (which wasn’t as desirable) first in Kembla but logic would suggest it’s open to major improvement here. The thing is, is she still a one or two away from getting back into the groove again? If the Best I’m Killer ever ran out into the park, there’s every chance he’d blow up a field like this. It’s worth a change of luck. Cavalier Charles ran great odds for Slim’s horse.

Betting tip: Dancer festival in every direction
