RACE 1 - CRIMSON VINE (5) has progressed nicely this time in, most recently digging deep to get the verdict in this grade. Carries more weight this time as she shoots to bring up the hat-trick but she only needs to hold her form to be very competitive. MASTER OF ZERPRISE (6) closed off solidly into fourth behind Crimson Vine at the latest. Meets her 2kgs better this time and is unbeaten over this journey. Warrants serious consideration. DISAGREEABLE MISS (4) is yet to threaten this campaign but has been tackling tougher opposition. Will appreciate the class drop and is among the chances on best figures. Don't dismiss. CANFORD (1) next best.

RACE 2 - A SAMURAI MIND (1) followed up his barnstorming maiden win with a solid chase into fourth in the LR Morphettville Guineas last start. Progressive type that is perfectly placed to play a major role. Leading player. ARTFUL TAWNY (4) was denied a head of scoring in this grade a fortnight ago. Cherry-ripe now with the three runs under his belt and is one of the key threats. BOLTED IN (3) came with a good run home to get within a length of the winner in third at Oakbank last time out. Strips fitter on the short turnaround and is drawn to get a cosy run from the inside pillar. Don't take lightly. ANGELIC APPEAL (5) was below her best last time out in the Clare Lindop Stakes but is better suited this back in this grade. Was a determined winner here two back against similar company. Can feature on best form. ORION THE HUNTER (2) picked up sharply and arrived just in time to get the verdict last time out at Benalla. Needs to go up a rung or two but is worth keeping safe.

RACE 3 - COPPERFIELD (2) has ran into two sharp winners in his two runs back. Hasn't won for a long time but strips fitter third up and will relish the rise in trip. Ready. FIELD THE MOMENT (5) is yet to strike through this time in but has been finishing thereabouts. Wasn't able to live up to market expectation last start but was doing her best work late. Expect her to eat up the extra 150m. INTO THE LIGHT (4) hasn't taken a step wrong in her last two. Tougher this time but is an improving type that can go on with it. FANMALIA (1) came with a big run from well back at Murray Bridge to score a barnstorming win. Boasts a strong record over this journey and is among the key chances. RUBINI (6) continues to find the line nicely. This is tougher but he gets in well at the weights and is worth keeping on side.

RACE 4 - STORYTELLER (2) let down nicely when bursting through a gap late to score here first up. Expect him to improve with that run under the belt and inside draw should see him prominent. Pannell sticks and can repeat the dose. LOSESOMEWINMORE (3) is ready to make his return for the sharp R & C Jolly stable. Was a handy maiden winner before heading to the paddock and should be forward enough following an Oakbank trial placing. Leading hoop in Toeroek reuniting is another push for his chances. ARTISTIC GENIUS (1) made light work of his rivals last time out at Ballarat when putting over 2L to his nearest rival. Strips fitter third up and doesn't have to improve much to be fighting out the finish. SUNZOU (4) resumes and makes his stable debut for Travis Doudle. Showed good ability back in NSW and has to be taken seriously if he can recapture that form. MINTULEE (6) was a nice winner here two back in this grade. Not as effective last time out but is worth keeping onside.

RACE 5 - KARAVAS (1) is a highly promising filly set to return for the R & C Jolly camp. Was an impressive winner of the G3 Ottawa on Oaks Day, beating home subsequent Blue Diamond winner Hayasugi by 2.4L. Her form is irresistible. ALL WOKE (2) lengthened nicely over the concluding stages to make an immediate impact on debut last start. Improvement to come and is drawn favourably. LINCOLNSHIRE (7) is a Starspangledbanner filly stepping out on debut for the Moody & Coleman team. Has shown ability in her jumpouts and shouldn't have to spend a penny from the draw. In the mix. Smaller cases can also be made for fellow debutants in BENDING AWAY (6) (Clarken & O'Shea) and MADAME MASERATI (8) (Kennewell & Yeomans). Worth considering in exotics.

RACE 6 - TRUMPSTA (1) knuckled down gamely to get the verdict last time out, following up his solid first-up run here last month. No tougher this time and is aided at the weights with the 3kg claimer engaged. Is a track and trip specialist that will take plenty of stitching. BOND STREET BEAU (2) progressed nicely at the latest when chasing strongly into the placings at HQ. Cherry-ripe now as he steps out to a winning trip. Gets a great chance to break a long run of outs. SCENIC HOST (5) is another who doesn't win out of turn but does rate highly on best figures. Has found the frame in both starts over this journey and takes benefit from Tourneur reuniting. Not without claims. RED SEQUOIA (10) is in the mix on best form.

RACE 7 - OVERSTRIKE (6) showed plenty of early dash first up at Murray Bridge and dug deep late to score by the barest of margins. Sure to have come on with that run under the belt. Can repeat the dose. ZEBELLA (5) showed a nice turn of foot when winning two back here and then followed it up with another strong finish at this track last time out three weeks ago. Ticking along nicely and only needs to hold her form to be competitive. THREE RINGS (7) has been an eye-catcher in both runs back this time in. Drawn to settle closer this time. Expect him to be featuring. MANHATTEN TIMES (1) has struggled to threaten of late when tackling stronger opposition. Will appreciate the sharp class drop and is aided at the weights with the 3kg claimer engaged. Don't take lightly. KOMACHI (8) next best.

RACE 8 - JAZZ AFFAIR (7) never looked likely here first up when always well back but got going late to savage the line and grab a minor cheque. Sure to have come on with that run under the belt and the inside draw should see her settle much closer, with Toeroek sticking. Expect her to take plenty of stopping. FALLEN (5) didn't give her rivals a sniff fresh when leading pillar-to-post. Was only denied half a length from making it two on the bounce, last time at Cranbourne. Cherry -ripe now and is drawn favourably. Expect her to be in this for a long way. BELLALIQUE (1) made light work of her rivals at Strathalbyn when scoring in CL2 company. This is tougher but she doesn't have to improve much to feature. ALAINGE (4) had excuses first up (lame) when finishing outside of the placings as favourite. Willing to forgive on best efforts and is worth including.

RACE 9 - DELIGHTFUL SHECKY (2) was a mighty impressive winner when resuming at HQ last time out. Yet to salute second up but loves this trip and is expected to take some beating. FLYWAY (7) was only warming to his task late when returning last start, managed to make inroads late but was still beaten 5L by Delightful Shecky. Drawn much kinder this time and meets the winner 2.5kgs better at the weights. The booking of Toeroek is another obvious push for his chances. Can atone. CLARENCE (5) went close to making it two on the bounce to kick-start the campaign. Fitter again and has Crowther sticking. Right in this. SAN LUCIDO (6) is racing well and drops back to a preferred trip. Worth considering.
