RACE 1 - MISS BUSSLINGER (2) nice filly desperate for this trip third-up. Strong through the line when fourth to Linebacker over 1400m in the G3 TL Baillieu Handicap at Rosehill on March 30. Dylan Gibbons keeps the ride and can race a little closer from the good gate. Go close. Group 3 placegetter BROADSIDING (3) was supported late in betting when covered ground to hold on for a tough third over 1400m in the G3 TL Baillieu Handicap at Rosehill. Drawn out today but gets the services of J Mac. Distance won't be an issue and expected to play a leading role. KILLCARE BEACHGIRL (6) well bred filly who created a big impression on debut with the claim when a slick on-pace winner over 1200m at Wyong two weeks ago. This much tougher but looks up to the task. JUST PARTY (1) started a solid odds on fav at second race start when a convincing 1.1 len winner over 1350m at Wyong on March 20. Tim Clark keeps the ride and expected to get the trip.

RACE 2 - ROBRICK (4) progressive gelding who was three weeks between runs when made ground late to finish eighth over 1200m at Rosehill in the LR Darby Munro on March 23. Undefeated this trip and look for him swooping late from the wide draw. Group 3 placegetter BUTCH CASSIDY (1) returned from a lengthy spell with an encouraging sixth in the G3 St Kingdom Stks over 1200m at Rosehill on March 30. Finished a close-up fourth in the Golden Rose last year. Hard to hold out. LIVELY (12) improving Victorian-trained filly who returned good figures when an eye-catching fourth in the G3 Typhoon Tracy Stakes at Moonee Valley last start. Trip suits and maps to get the right run. RAZORS (5) third-up today and deserves his chance in this company. Stalked the speed when when a fighting third behind Gringotts over 1400m at Rosehill on March 30. Has genuine each way claims. The chances don't end there!

RACE 3 - TAVI TIME (1) smart gelding set to peak third-up. Chased a hot speed as fav when a fighting second over 1400m at Rosehill on March 16. Kept fresh for this and watch for him launching late. Multiple Group 2 placegetter WILLINGA BEAST (15) will appreciate the drop in grade on the quick back-up after running the race of her life when tenth over 1200m here in the G1 TJ Smith Stakes last Saturday. Can race closer from the gate and play a leading role. Group 2 placegetter TERRITORY EXPRESS (8) has looked above average in his two runs back. Massive class rise second-up when rattled late to finish a narrow second in the G2 Ajax Stakes at Rosehill over 1500m. Will drift back again and charge late. WILLINGA FREEFALL (14) consistent gelding who came from a mile back second-up when an unlucky second over 1400m in the Provincial CQ at Newcastle. J Mac ride and looks good each way value. The race doesn't end there.

RACE 4 - LADY OF CAMELOT (1) returned to form off her solid second in the G1 Blue Diamond Stakes at Caulfield with a tenacious win over 1200m in the G1 Golden Slipper at Rosehill three weeks ago. Form has since been franked with Manaal winning the Sires' last week. Can carry the extra weight and win again. Multiple Group 3 placegetter ENEEZA (5) was dragged back from the wide draw and a total forgive when a gritty seventh over 1200m in the G1 Golden Slipper at Rosehill. Maps to stalk the speed today and looks the main danger. DRIFTING (3) was rewarded for her consistency when sat on the speed for a dominant 1.2 len victory of the G3 Magic Night over 1200m at Rosehill on March 16. Kept fresh and will be in this for a long way. AMEENA (12) next best.

RACE 5 - SCHWARZ (6) promising colt who stalked the hot tempo first-up when a narrow second in the LR Darby Munro Stakes over 1200m at Rosehill. J Mac sticks from the inside gate and has the numbers to go one better. OZZMOSIS (1) Coolmore Stud Stakes winner who was a total forgive on resumption, when jockey was almost dislodged on jumping finishing last in the G1 The Galaxy over 1100m at Rosehill on March 23. Not asked to do much in a recent trial and must be treated with respect. THE NOVELIST (8) speedy colt who came out hard from the outside gate on resumption before tiring late when fourth over 1200m in the LR Darby Munro Stakes at Rosehill. Undefeated second-up and will take running down again from the better draw. ARKANSAW KID (2) chased gamely into the frame first-up in the LR Sunlight Classic at Flemington. Has ability and is more than capable of featuring.

RACE 6 - ORCHESTRAL (1) is an above-average NZ filly destined for better things. Chasing her sixth straight victory today after coming with a well-timed run when a tenacious winner of the G1 Vinery Stud Stakes over 2000m at Rosehill. Fitter now and the one they have to beat again. VRC Oaks winner ZARDOZI (3) is holding her form well but will need to find a couple of lengths if she is to turn the tables on Orchestral. Marquand will need to weave his magic from the sticky gate but is proven at the trip. Group 2 winning filly AUTUMN ANGEL (5) backs up quickly after looming strongly with the 61kg when a narrow second in the G3 Adrian Knox over 2000m here last Saturday. Untried at this trip but has the figures to go to the next level. Levin Classic winner QUINTESSA (2) looks set to peak here after running on late when second in the G2 Alister Clark Stakes at Moonee Valley over 2040m on March 23. Bred to get the trip and is good each-way value.

RACE 7 - CIRCLE OF FIRE (12) progressive entire with a sense of timing at his fourth Australian start. Angled out late in the heavy (9) going as favourite when a dour long-neck winner at this track in the G2 Chairmans Hcp over 2600m last Saturday. Will prove hard to stop again. ASHRUN (3) proven performer who ran an unlucky fourth in the Melbourne Cup last year. Strong through the line when third in the G1 Tancred over 2400m at Rosehill on March 30. Gets favourable conditions and the trip won't be a problem. GLENTANEOUS (13) tough gelding who won't know himself with the 51.5kg here. Won the Bagot Hcp over 2800m last January before catching the eye when sixth as favourite over 2600m in the LR Roy Higgins Quality at Flemington on March 30. Kah rides and maps to get the right run. Group 3 winner ATHABASCAN (10) indicated he was spot on for this after charging late when a close fourth over 2400m in the G1 Tancred Stakes at Rosehill on March 30. Schiller sticks and looks primed to run the trip.

RACE 8 - VIA SISTINA (8) made her Australian debut after a lengthy break when scoring an arrogant victory over 2000m in the G1 Ranvet Stakes at Rosehill on March 23. Goes just a well second-up and has an explosive turn of foot to finish over the top of these. The one to beat. PRIDE OF JENNI (7) is a tough on-pace mare yet to win in two attempts over the 2000m. Took control early from out wide at a good tempo before being nailed late by Cascadian over 2000m in the G1 Australian Cup at Flemington on March 30. Bates keeps the ride and will give them something to catch again fourth-up. PLACE DU CARROUSEL (10) loomed into the race strongly at first Australian start but no match for Via Sistina late when second in the G1 Ranvet on March 23. Further improved now and undefeated in both second-up runs. CEOLWULF (11) three-year-old colt who backs-up quickly after charging late when a narrow second in the G1 ATC Derby over 2400m last Saturday. Striving to be the first 3yo since Intergaze (1997) to win.

RACE 9 - ZOUGOTCHA (2) classy mare back to her brilliant best after making it two-in-a-row when a gritty neck winner over 1500m in the G1 Coolmore Classic at Rosehill. Maps to get the right run again and brings the strongest figures here. TROPICAL SQUALL (14) is third-up today, and her best form is over this track and trip. Can get control here from the good gate and will prove hard to run down after her slashing fourth in the G1 Coolmore Classic from a wide gate at latest. ATISHU (1) top class mare racing in a rich vein of form. Won this race last year and comes out of a strong G1 Australian Cup when a fighting third over 2000m at Flemington. Shinn keeps the ride and will prove hard to hold out. SEMANA (5) recent form is hard to fault and was a month between runs when a dogged second in the G1 Coolmore. Maps well and has solid claims.

RACE 10 - SALTAIRE (14) is an underrated mare with the one win from 11 starts. Launched late from out wide when resumed with a game third over 1100m at Flemington behind Estriella on March 30. Goes just as well second-up and can race closer from the good gate on the limit weight. RED CARD (1) classy mare who keeps raising the bar this time in over the 1100m. Will need a good ride from the wide gate and since had a recent 740m trial at Warwick Farm. Go close. WEE NESSY (3) two runs back have been sound and comes out of a strong race when third to Chain Of Lightning over 1200m in the G3 Birthday Card Stakes at Rosehill on March 23. Value runner from the draw. TASHI (4) consistent mare holding her form well this time in. Got out late when second to Chain Of Lightning in the G3 Birthday Card. Form has since been franked and expected to be in the finish.
