RACE 1 - Tough race. THE THREE HUNDRED (9) talented colt who will relish the sharp class drop today third-up. Held a forward position early before tiring late when ninth in the G3 Pago Pago Stakes over 1200m at Rosehill on March 16. Likely to go forward from the gate and take catching. FROEBEL STAR (6) nice filly with ability. Held on well at second race start when a close-up sixth over 1000m in the LR Lonhro Plate at Randwick on February 10. Tongue-tie goes on and looks a genuine top-three prospect. AGENDA SETTER (3) returned for second prep with a disappointing tenth over 1200m in the G3 Pago Pago Stakes at Rosehill on March 16. Blinkers go on and sure to be competitive in this line up. TUILERIES (16) is a So You Think filly stepping out on debut for the Snowdens. Has impressed at the trials and any market confidence needs to be respected.

RACE 2 - FOR VICTORY (5) a win looks imminent fourth-up after finishing strongly when third over 1550m at Randwick Kensington in BM78 company on March 13. This easier and J Mac takes the ride. Go close. UNION GAP (1) has a tidy win record and returns today with good fresh figures. Stuck on well when a gritty third over 2400m at Rosehill on July 22. Two searching 1200m trials should see him forward enough for this. MR BUSTER (3) staying type who returns from a layoff of six months. Showed ability at his two Australian runs last time in and has been given further time to develop. Not asked to do much in two trials and market moves must be closely monitored. LEICA STORM (8) is racing in great order. Comes in on the fresh side and has to be included in the chances.

RACE 3 - STAND ASIDE (7) four-start maiden resuming for his third prep. Since fitted with two trials and expected to go out hard from the good gate. Will prove one of the hardest to hold out. LITTLE JEANIE (13) former New Zealand filly who made her Australian debut with a sound second over 1400m at Randwick Kensington on March 13. J Mac keeps the ride but will need luck from the awkward gate. DARLING DOWNS (12) resumed for second prep with an eye catching fourth over 1100m at Randwick Kensington on March 13. Desperate for this trip and further now and look for her late. The resuming CHILLY CHARLIE (3) also holds claims.

RACE 4 - KANDINSKY ABSTRACT (10) promising colt resuming after racing in group and listed company last time in. Expected to have strengthened-up over the break and should be ready to go with two trials. Gets all the favours with J Mac on from the soft gate. SETTEVELI (9) returns from a spell of nine months and now in the Snowden yard. Both wins have come over this trip and two recent 1000m trials were full of merit. Big market watch. FLYING DESTINY (2) resumes and is unbeaten first up. Has trialled well in readiness and boasts a handy record over this journey. Should be giving this a serious shake. POWER OF THE BRAVE (6) also returns and should be forward enough off the back of a Hawkesbury trial win. Don't take lightly.

RACE 5 - Tricky race. HUESCA (4) opened his prep with a win two runs ago. Not disgraced at latest in this grade when sat on the speed for a fighting fourth over 1400m at Sandown-Hillside on March 20. Goes well here and will prove hard to run down. CADETSHIP (5) consistent gelding holding his form well this time in. Raced a little flat on the quick back-up when fifth over 1400m at this track on March 6. Best form will see him prove hard to stop. ROMEO'S CHOICE (8) has been a model of consistency this time in and tried hard at latest with the 60kg when a close second over 1400m at Randwick Kensington. Trained on the track and not to be underestimated. GREEN SHADOWS (10) returns and strips fitter for two sound Rosehill trials. Has shown glimpses of ability without doing much winning and is worth keeping onside.

RACE 6 - UNFLINCHING (8) tough sprinter with a good record over this trip. Comes to Sydney now after resuming with a gritty on pace second over 955m at Moonee Valley on March 8. Gets in light with the claim and sure to give plenty of cheek. Group 2 winner SWISS EXILE (7) turned in an eye-catching run over 1100m at Ballarat last time out when a fast finishing third with the 61kg. Will relish the fast tempo and drop in weight. Value runner. QUICK TEMPO (5) third-up today and won third-up in the past. Jason Collett sticks after making good ground late when fifth over 1100m in the G3 M Mccarten at Rosehill on March 16. Has the ability to finish over the top of this lot. DASHING LEGEND (9) is another that will find this easier and clearly shoulders her share of ability. Need to include.

RACE 7 - TERRESTAR (8) at her top now and indicated a win was imminent when ran on late from the wide gate to finish a close-up second over 1400m at this track on March 6. Berry sticks and no excuses from the inside draw. The one to beat. DEFINING (3) lightly raced mare who carried the 58kg well when resumed with a tough head victory at today's track and trip on March 6. Drawn out again and has the upside to continue on her winning ways. DESIAH (4) races best with her runs spaced and found the line nicely from midfield when second at Rosehill over this trip on February 28. Claim helps and has each way prospects. LOVE CHILD (12) returned for second prep with a tiring tenth over 1500m at Hawkesbury on March 19. Expecting more here after showing plenty of potential last time in.
