RACE 1 - MANZOR MAGIC (3) was just too far back to challenge for the victory but did close off nicely over 2200m at Ascot. He'll find this a touch easier now and his last couple of efforts have put in solid ratings. Finds the right race now and can shed the maiden tag. MISSEDTHEDEEL (5) was 40-1 last start but wasn't far away when finishing 1.8L off the winner. She'll be fitter for that effort, and she steps out to this trip for the first time which should suit this daughter of Dundeel. Can be an improver. DEMONSTRATION (1) was only 0.5L off the winner last time out over 2200m at this track and appears to have his hoof on the till. He's had a few goes now, but he rates well in this field and can put his best foot forward. SKITTISH (2) comes through the same race as Demonstration and must be included alongside that runner. RUBICK DELIGHT (7) was good when getting out to this trip last campaign and is worth keeping safe.

RACE 2 - OLIVIA'SMEMUMMA (7) was no match for a dominant winner here 11 days ago, but rates highly off that event. She'll be right on the pace from an outside draw which is ideal down the straight course. Still has plenty of upside and if she can repeat her latest effort, she'll take plenty of beating. SOMETHING ROYAL (10) bumped into a smart one on debut before being sent for a spell after a disappointing effort. It's worth noting she did jump a 2-1 chance that day. Up against the older horses now, but she'll be fitter for recent trials and can make her presence felt down in the weights. ROUNDABOUT GLORY (2) was only fair first-up over 1000m at Albany, though the form out of the race has been red-hot. The draw may be a little sticky down the straight, but he laid the foundations for a promising campaign fresh. Big chance. ONLY US (1) may find them a bit sharp over this trip but is worth keeping an eye on for future races.

RACE 3 - DUG ANOTHER HOLE (3) is improving with every run, just missing over the 1200m journey on the Scarpside here last start. Now out in trip which looks to suit, he draws for the run of the race down low. Can continue on his upward trend and knock over the maiden today. CABLE ROCK (1) disappointed at Ascot last start when in the market. That effort followed a narrow defeat at Belmont over 1300m. He's obviously better than he showed last time out and he can bounce back today. SNIP OF GOSSIP (2) was good first-up over 1200m despite being a 25-1 chance. He improved sharply second-up last preparation off a similar set up and the fact Steve Parnham sticks is a positive sign. Right in the mix. FINAL TRADE (5) should appreciate the rise in trip and is worth including from a nice alley. STRYKER'S GAL (7) steps out in trip for the first time and can improve.

RACE 4 - LET SPARKS FLY (10) jumped favourite first-up at Geraldton and was horrible there. Happy to overlook the fresh effort as the figures from her debut campaign are right up to winning this. Vast improvement is expected, and she should get every chance today. RUBICK LASS (9) wasn't far off over 1406m here 11 days ago and can sit closer from the favourable alley this time. Had ten goes to shed the maiden tag now, but lands in a suitable race. Can make her presence felt. PERCUSSION PRINCE (3) just missed two back before a 3L defeat here over 1300m most recently. The wide draw may be a concern, but the gelding is racing well and should be in the finish on recent efforts. DESERT EDGE (5) resumes on the back of a handy trial at Lark Hill recently. Won't be far away. ROYALE MUCK UP (4) can be an improver with the blinkers on first time.

RACE 5 - RED TORI (1) finished 3.3L off the winner as favourite on the Scarpside here first-up and should have come on from that effort. She'd trialled well coming into the fresh effort and she'll be fitter for that run where she just felt the pinch late. Can improve second-up and take plenty of beating. FEARLESS TALK (7) was only caught late in the race first-up after leading the field over the 1200m on the Scarpside. She's a second-up winner previously and she's nicely placed with the claim of Corver. Can be prominent again and take plenty of catching. GRACE ROSE (4) steps out to 1200m again today after keeping up well over the 1000m at Ascot last start. He was a winner here two starts back and can return to that level today. PANDORA GIRL (3) is 0/5 at the trip but is racing well of late. Worth including.

RACE 6 - SIMPLE LOGIC (2) has been mixing his form of late but was a winner on the Scarpside here two back. On the quick back-up but maps beautifully from the inside and rates highly off the last couple of efforts. Can get the job done. WUHAN WARRIOR (7) was a strong winner first-up when holding on for victory at Narrogin. He does tend to dip second-up which is a niggle, but he's on the quick back-up today and he drops right in weight. Can work to the front and take plenty of catching. FOREST WAR (5) is better than he showed last start, winning over 1300m here two starts ago. Can sit just off the speed from a favourable alley and is sure to be strong late if the leader's overdo things. SPEED DREAM (1) comes into this without a trial but his form at the end of last campaign holds him in good stead. Include. SEMIGEL (6) won't be far away if he handles the quick turnaround.

RACE 7 - The promising RICHANCO (4) led and bolted in over this course and distance last time out, scoring an impressive debut victory. He looks an above average horse and we'll get a guide on his form through earlier races. Can work his way through the grades with a win in this. WEERAECHOUX (8) resumes today with a nice trial at Lark Hill under his belt. He's a winner first-up in the past and Brad Parnham sticks from the trial. Can make a statement on resumption. ELBOW LOUNGE (2) should benefit from the fresh run on the Scarpside here and can be an improver. PROTEGE (3) is a progressive type with nice formlines from last campaign. No public trials make him very interesting.

RACE 8 - PROFIT POCKET (2) can bring up the hat-trick after an impressive 2.5L victory at Ascot last time out. She looks a progressive mare and the rise in trip shouldn't be an issue for her. Big tick with Steve Parnham riding and she can continue her winning streak. CANGGU (6) sat outside the leader and won comfortably over this course and distance last time out. He's hit his straps since getting to the mile and he'll do no work to find the front from an inside alley. He's the main danger. FLASH DUCATI (1) was scratched from Albany on Friday to run here and draws the inside as she rises up to the mile again. Can sit much closer than she has in recent efforts and her form reads very nicely for a race of this calibre. Lively candidate. DARK LOOKS (4) looks to have found a suitable event and won't be far away. DANCING CHOOSE (5) is better than he showed last time out and steps out to the mile for the first time. Include.
