Wyong - Race 5 2:50pm AEST
Hibiscus Lady has trialed in very sharp fashion ahead of her return to the races and she is very well-placed in this contest. She won her only previous start over 1000 metres in impressive fashion and she gave her rivals no chance over 900 metres at Newcastle. She can go straight to the front and prove very tough to run down.
Wyong - Race 7 4:05pm AEST
El Coyote has recorded two wins on the trot in impressive fashion and there is no reason that he can’t continue his winning ways. He will need some luck in running from the wide barrier draw, but he does have a nice turn-of-foot and he is well and truly over the odds at his current odds of $8.
Wyong - Race 8 4:40pm AEST
Magnolia Power has form around the likes of Terminology and Haut Brion Her and there are definitely no horses of that quality in this field. The wide barrier draw isn’t ideal, but she does have tactical versatility and Sam Clenton is riding well. She is the best horse in this race and represents value at the current price.
Pakenham - Race 8 4:00pm AEST
There has been plenty of early money for Thurmanator and that should come as no surprise. He should now be at peak fitness following his tough effort at Pakenham last start and he looks ideally placed here. He ran all the best closing sectionals last start and a repeat of that effort would make him tough to hold out.
