Racing & Sports expert selections.
RACE 1 - GO GO GROMMET (1) is another resuming without a public trial, but did win on debut over the short course at Pinjarra. He was improving throughout last campaign and can be better again as a four-year-old. Big chance with the 2kg claim. LEADING TADDY (6) disappointed at the end of last campaign but was good over this trip in his two starts prior. Trialled behind a smart one coming in and and Parnham has options from the draw. Won't be far away. DREAMERS NEVER DIE (5) has race fitness on his side as he drops back in trip. Include. BAYEZID (2) is ticking along nicely of late and merits respect.
RACE 2 - AUTUMN REBEL (7) has been good in his two runs back this time in, racing in much better company than he'll face today. He drops back to midweek grade and would only need to be holding his form to get the job done. He looks mighty hard to beat. PROCESSIO (13) showed good signs on debut and is immediately stretched out to 1500m. Pike sticks from an inside alley and she'll continue to improve with racing. Main danger. STYLISH LORD (10) hasn't been far away in his two runs so far and stepping out in trip looks to suit. Wide draw is some query but S. Parnham knows him well and he can be thereabouts at the finish. FULL OF MERIT (8) couldn't hold on last time out but her efforts prior were very good. Should be about the finish. NORTHEAST EAGLE (3) is still searching for his maiden win but his run two back at Northam stacks up nicely here. Not to be discounted.
RACE 3 - CELEBRITY ICON (5) is building nicely as the winkers go on again, working her way up to a more suitable trip. Her fresh run does stack up nicely here though and she can capitalise on any pace poured on up front. KIRALUI (3) scored a nice win at Bunbury last time out, getting home narrowly. Now comes to town off good figures there and Chris Parnham is happy to stick with him. Drawn ideally and is sure to make his presence felt. IMA WILD GIRL (6) won impressively two back at York but was just out of her depth in open company last time out. Back to a C1 this time and the slight rise in trip may suit. CJP rides and she can bounce back in a big way. ECSTASY OF GOLD (7) shed the maiden tag in a C1 at Bunbury in good time. Rates well off that and is not to be discounted. SAMARIA (2) disappointed last time out but is better than she showed there. Expect her to bounce back.
RACE 4 - RISEANFALL (6) was just collared late in the race at Ascot last start at massive odds. She rates really well off that effort and can roll forward from the draw once again. Can notch up her maiden victory if she runs up to her latest effort. ODIN OMEN (1) disappointed at Ascot last time out after putting in a strong effort at Northam prior. Dropping back in trip may help and he should get all the favours from the inside alley. Can make his presence felt. CHER (7) showed plenty of ability fresh at Bunbury on the back of some handy trials coming in. Expecting her to have come on from the debut effort and can stick her nose into the finish once again. WEAPONS HOT (4) continues to improve with every run and can continue his upward trend in this event. PLAYBALL (2) just missed in maiden company here last start but gets Brad Parnham in the saddle this time. Keep safe.
RACE 5 - FOREVER DREAMING (3) can mix her form a touch but was super over this course and distance last time out, missing by 0.8L when running on from the back. Has placed 5/7 at this trip with figures right up to winning this. Can return to the winners' stall with the 2kg claimer engaged. SPLIT JETE (5) didn't run up to expectations here last start but his prior form at Belmont was very good. Should get every chance from the draw for Watson and make his presence felt. CLIMB ON TOP (6) returned in nice order here 10 days ago and stretches in trip where he's untested. CJP sticking is a confidence booster and he has plenty of upside being lightly-raced. Improver with winning claims. BLAZING TYCOON (1) usually improves with a run under his belt and can sharp improvement is expected. LONG WEEKEND (2) is better than he showed last start and is not to be discounted.
RACE 6 - VEVINSKY (2) was slowly away and never got into the race last time out when right back in trip. He steps back out to 1800m where his form prior was very strong. A return to his best form would see him hard to hold out. MINGORA (4) just missed at Northam in this grade and returns to 1800m where she's been placed previously. Pike sticking adds confidence and she's sure to be right there at the finish. GIN 'N' SWANIC (7) drops back in trip off a 43-day freshen, but Steven Parnham hopping in the saddle creates interest. Drawn nicely along the inside and won't be far away if he runs up to his form. DEVONIA (5) returned in great order first-up when leading throughout. Fitter for the run and should be in this for a long way. TELL NOTHIN' (9) drops back in grade after finishing down the track at Northam. Can bounce back.
RACE 7 - DUN WITH THE BLUES (2) is building an impressive record, adding to her tally with a dominant victory at Belmont 43 days ago. Se's had a trial since to keep her ticking over and suspect we haven't gotten to the bottom of her just yet. Exciting galloper who can continue to win. FEUDING (1) has only been tried at this trip once, but has to be included off his recent form over shorter distances. Trained by a smart stable and might find this a little easier than last start. Big chance. QUEEN OF JERUSALEM (9) has had plenty of work to do her past couple after settling back in the run. Anticipate she'll be back again from the draw, but her best form stacks right up here. Not to be discounted. NIIGATA (7) steps back out in trip where she won two back. Won't be far away. GOD'S GARDEN (8) is going along nicely of late and must be respected.
RACE 8 - SUPER SMINK (1) scored in the Belgravia first-up when running over the top of her rivals in impressive fashion. She bolted in over this course and distance in the Sires' at the end of last campaign and Parnham should get every chance from the inside draw. She's the one to beat. KESHI BOOM (10) is the up-and-comer who looks to have a very high ceiling. Ran over the top of them at Northam fresh and now steps out to 1400m for the first time. Stable & jockey have to be respected. CHOLLIMA (9) bolted in at Bunbury first-up and has earned her call-up to stakes grade. Won't be far away. PARIS CALLING (4) went under as favourite last start but the form has been franked since. One for exotics.
RACE 9 - BECALOTTI (1) disappointed last time out when right in the market, fading to finish 2.8L off the winner. This looks a much easier race and her form prior was superb. 2kg claimer engaged gets her in nicely at the weights and she looks the one to beat. SCORPION RULER (11) ran over the top to score at Bunbury on debut and the form may be franked earlier in the card. Barrier 1 can see her settle a little closer and if she's come on from the debut effort she'll be right there at the finish. AIYZA (4) makes her debut for the Matthew Scott stable after an ordinary campaign last time in work. Her trial was only fair coming in but she races well at this course and is a winner first-up previously. Respect. STORMY TAWNY (8) gets the blinkers on first time and steps back out in trip which looks to suit. Pike rides and she has to be included. KINGS SICARIO (5) resumes with a trial under his belt and is not to be discounted.
