RACE 1 - JAWHARAT DUBAI (7) progressive filly who found the line nicely at second run back when an eye-catching third over 1400m at Randwick Kensington on March 13. This is much easier and should prove too strong for these. RIP OFF (8) at her top for this and worth another chance after having no luck from the wide gate when ninth over 1400m at Randwick Kensington. Maps to get the right run from the gate and expected to figure prominently. WIZARDS (5) was far from disgraced on debut when sixth over 1300m at this track on March 9. Strips fitter now and look for him late. TAIPAN LEGEND (4) returned for second prep with a wilting eighth over 1400m at Randwick Kensington on March 13. Expecting a form reversal today from the good draw.

RACE 2 - SILVER CLIFF (8) fitter after two even career runs and finds the right race to shed her maiden status. Was up in grade when she sat on the speed for a fighting fifth over 1200m at Rosehill four weeks ago. Back to the 1100m and sure to be strong late. HELLDANCER (10) a win looks imminent after finishing in the minor money at all three runs this time in. Maps to get the right run again and looks the main danger. FLIGHTCREW (9) showed ability behind some handy types last time in and returns from a five-month break. Since fitted with two solid Rosehill trials and looks forward enough for this. NY KEE (1) has returned much stronger this time in and battled right to the line when third over 1200m at Newcastle on March 8. Wide gate no help today but has the fitness now to run on late.

RACE 3 - JE REVE (1) returns from a 29-day let-up after sitting on the speed for a tough third over 1200m at Rosehill on February 28. Will relish the claim and prove hard to catch. ALABAMA STATE (10) holding form well after bumping into some smart types at his last couple of outings. Ran into the promising Roselyn's Star when strong late to finish fourth over 1000m at Randwick Kensington 2yo on March 13. BELLENTH (4) Hellbent gelding out of a Fastnet Rock mare on debut for the Kim Waugh yard. Has shown ability in all three trials and looks ready to go for this. NOBLE ONE (6) returns from a 46-day let-up. Strong through the line in the soft (6) going when a tenacious fourth over 1200m at Nowra on February 11. A firmer track helps and has genuine top-three prospects.

RACE 4 - JUMP IN THE LINE (4) stable in great form at present. Rattled late when resumed for an eye-catching fourth over 1100m here on March 9. Wadick sticks with the claim and expected to play a leading role. INVAIDA PRINCE (9) surprised at big odds ($81), third-up when a solid third over this track and trip on March 19. On the quick back-up and not to be underestimated. MORE VOLTAGE (13) trained on the track and ready for the 1300m now after finishing fifth over 1000m here on February 21. Has a fitness edge over most of this lot and don't underestimate. JARED (3) resumed from a four-month spell with a solid sixth over 1200m at Gosford on March 16. Can race closer today from the gate and shed his maiden status.

RACE 5 - Group 3 placegetter PIONEER LASS (1) is holding her form well and will relish the drop in grade after sitting on the speed when a fading seventh over 1600m in the G3 Matron Stakes at Flemington on March 9. Extra trip suits with a quieter ride. Watch for her late. JESSANDI (10) big improver second-up when launched late to go under in a tight finish behind Reet Petite over 1600m at Canberra on March 10. Desperate for this trip now and has the upside to figure prominently from the good gate. ZARROSE (8) returns from a 29-day let-up after finishing sixth behind the promising Mare Of Mt Buller over 1500m at Rosehill on February 28. Should get the trip. NYOTA (7) all three wins have come at this track and has excellent third-up stats. Had to work hard from the wide gate and the early effort took its toll when 11th over 1500m here on March 19. Can sit on the speed today and take catching.

RACE 6 - BROADWAY BOUNCER (5) indicated a win was imminent when he motored late from well back to finish a close-up second over 1100m at this track on March 9. Claim helps again and at his top for this. Go close. UNWRITTEN (7) tough gelding who should relish the 3kg claim after sticking on well with the 59kg when fifth over 1200m at Newcastle on March 8. Fitter now but drawn out again. SOOBOOCO (6) underrated gelding who returns from a spell of three months. Finished behind some promising types last time in and since fitted with a recent trial placing on February 28. Has the ability to finish over the top of these. ROCKIN' MILLIE (9) returned from a seven-month spell as favourite when a dominant on pace winner over 1000m at Gosford on February 24. Has upside and ready to tackle this company.

RACE 7 - LA VESUVIUS (1) handy gelding with a sound record of three wins from eight starts. Returned from a spell three-and-a-half weeks ago when a plugging fifth to Tavi Time over 1400m in the Provincial CQ at Newcastle on March 2. Strips fitter now and can return to winning form over the mile with the claim. JACOB'S TIME (4) lightly raced gelding with a ton of ability. Sat on the speed when knocked up late to finish fifth over 1550m at Randwick Kensington on March 13. Close to his top now and this looks more to his liking. FROSBIE (8) had to work hard second-up from the wide gate when a tiring tenth over 1400m here in the Provincial CQ on March 9. Expecting more back in this company. NATURAL DEDUCTION (5) first-up after four months stuck on well with the 59kg when third over 1500m here on March 9. Undefeated second-up and looks to have come back much stronger.

RACE 8 - OWL WITNESS (8) fitter now after two runs back and will find this more to his liking after making ground late when ninth over this track and trip behind Short Shorts in the Provincial CQ on March 9. Sure to be strong late. KHUMBILA (6) has returned much stronger this prep and was rewarded for his consistency when a slick on-pace maiden winner over the 1300m here at the latest. This is much tougher but gets map favours from the gate. THE CRIMSON IDOL (9) tough old mare retaining her zest for racing. Has a strong record at this track and distance and can give plenty of cheek from the draw. EYEQUE (4) resuming from a four-and-a-half-month break. Showed ability last time in and since fitted with two sound trials. Blinkers come off and maps to get the right run.
