RACE 1 - CRIMSON VINE (9) bounced back sharply off a disappointing effort at Gawler two back, with a gutsy chase to narrowly miss at the latest. Put the writing on the wall last start. Can go one better. BOGUES (4) was a class above them at the latest when emphatically shedding the maiden tag. Jamie Kah goes on. Can make it two on the bounce. KARAKA KIWI (1) dug deep to just get home last start on the Parks track. Tougher this time but warrants respect. MAKE IT A DOUBLE (7) wasn't far away last start in a similar event and is not to be discounted.

RACE 2 - LOVELY LOOKIN' (8) is a promising filly set to resume for the Gluyas team. Rates highly and has been readied for this with an impressive Gawler trial win. Expect her to take some beating. MINTULEE (6) improved on her rearward finish two starts back in the G3 Peter Le Grand Stakes at Caulfield with a C2 win last time on the Parks surface, just nine days ago. Faces a similar assignment and there's no reason she can't repeat the dose. ANOTHERHOUSE (4) couldn't live up to market support when resuming here last time out but wasn't too far away from the winner. Unbeaten second up. Sharp improvement anticipated. BOLTED IN (5) returns and shoulders a handy fresh record. Has shown ability in his first two preps and gets a key jockey booking in Lane. Warrants serious consideration.

RACE 3 - BOOGNISH (4) returns and has scored fresh before. Tackled some handy opposition last time in and has been readied for this with a nice Gawler trial win. The booking of Kah is a big push for her chances. Bold showing anticipated. BON'S YOUR BACK (1) made it back-to-back wins when making light work of his opposition at Stawell. Taking on a better field but he is good enough to continue on winning ways with Lane piloting from the inside alley. WILLASTON (5) hasn't been too far away of late. Just lacking the winning blow but is going well enough to be very competitive again. BRAZANO (10) was an eye-catcher fresh here when rattling home into a midfield finish. Sure to have come on with that run under his belt. Watch for him launching late again.

RACE 4 - JENKINS (1) was well below his best here last start when failing to finish off. Drops back to a winning trip and is 1/1 over this course and distance. Can atone. MARVELOUS NIGHT (5) showed plenty of early speed last start but over did it and faded in the run home. Sure to give himself every chance out in front again. Don't take lightly. BOND STREET BEAU (6) returns and it's worth noting he filled a minor placing when resuming last time in work. Has found a suitable race and is worth including. GHETTO SUPASTAR (3) makes the trip across from Victoria and has claims.

RACE 5 - EASY DUN (2) caught plenty of eyes on debut when letting rip with an impressive turn of foot to pick up and spit out his rivals at Bendigo. Looks a handy one that can really go on with it. AIR ASSAULT (1) performed well above market expectation when sticking on bravely into fourth when resuming in the LR City of Marion here last start. Is another handy operator and is already a G3 winner. Main danger. TIME TO CHAT (9) got off the mark in good order two back at Sandown-Hillside. Not as effective last start in the G2 Autumn Classic at Caulfield. Faces another tricky assignment but warrants respect off debut effort. POPPIN' CHAMPAGNE (10) had a clear margin when entering the lane and maintained the advantage in a dominant display to get off the mark at Moe. Open to further improvement and gets a key jockey switch in Jamie Kah piloting. Don't take lightly. HARLEY'N'ROSE (3) doesn't win out of turn but is a capable type on his day and carries a clear fitness edge. In the mix.

RACE 6 - MERIDIUS (4) doesn't win out of turn, going just over a year between wins at this stage but rarely finishes far away from the winner. The rise in trip should suit at this point of the prep and winning hoop in Kah sticking is a positive. Well placed to play a major role. WILD IMAGINATION (5) returned with a bang on the Parks track when leading pillar-to-post. Tougher this time but has the state's leading rider in Toeroek recommitted. Is tested here but could stand up to the mark. THIRSTY GUEST (9) hit the line nicely behind Wild Imagination when resuming last time. Gets weight relief and is unbeaten second up. SECOND TO NUN (6) drops back in trip today but can feature if he runs up to recent efforts.

RACE 7 - Cracking edition of the Adelaide Cup with many differing form lines coming to the fore. AMADE (1) perhaps the superior and most exposed form over this sort of journey. The ten-year-old was an eye-catcher last start at Moonee Valley in the Listed company when rattling home from the rear to earn a minor placing. Shoulders a terrific record over this journey and is rock-hard fit. Gets the nod. THE MAP (4) can be considered best of the home brigade and has emerged as a progressive staying type. Was an impressive winner fresh in the LR JRA Plate and then came within a length of saluting in the Lord Reims last start. Cherry-ripe third up and reunites with Jamie Kah, who piloted her to success in her most impressive win to date. Expect him to be right there at the business end. Launceston Cup winner EXCELLERATION (3) lived right up to market expectation when scoring with a bit up his sleeve. Open to further improvement but is untested over this journey. ALHAMBRA LAD (2) next best.

RACE 8 - GREY RIVER (5) resumes and has been readied for this with an impressive Gawler trial win. Will no doubt be looking for further but goes well fresh and is 2/3 over this journey. Will be picking them up late if they are running along early. AUSTMARR (9) capitalised on her narrow defeat two back with a dominant all-the-way winner at the latest. Loses nothing in the saddle with the in-form Jamie Kah hopping on. Doesn't have to improve much to be fighting out the finish again. AITCH TWO OH (2) made light work of her rivals when resuming here last time. Not a great deal tougher this. CELSIUS STAR (6) won well over this course and distance last start and is drawn beautifully today. Keep safe.

RACE 9 - PRAIRIE FLOWER (2) settled well back last time then wound up strongly in the straight to finish a length away second over this journey at Ararat. Shoulders a handy record over the track and trip. Gets her chance to break a long run of outs. THE GREAT BABY (8) returns and it's worth noting he filled a minor placing when returning from a spell last time in work. Boasts a strong record over the track and trip and is aided at the weights with the 3kg claimer engaged. Can make a bright return. DUNMAGHLAS (4) was in the money at each run this time in before scoring at Strathalbyn last time. Expected to cross from wide out. Should give backers a sight.
