Race 1 – Fresh For Kids Plate (1000m)

This is an exciting race with a number of promising two-year- olds. Conchita won like a potential star on debut before she had issues at her second start, but her recent barrier trials suggests she is back to her best.

Blazing Steel, Star Crossed and Infra Dig all won in good style last start and can take the step forward required to win this race. Brenton Avdulla is easily the best jockey riding in Sydney on Saturday and he could prove the difference on Infra Dig.

Race 2 – Eric Kime Handicap (1400m)

Elle Lou returned to the races with a very impressive performance and there is no reason she can’t make it two wins from as many starts this preparation. She loves a track with give in it and she will get that again this weekend.

Her stablemate Pioneering could be the main danger. She did not have a great deal of luck last start and I like the fact that Chris Waller has kept her at 1400m.

Rustic Melody is the value runner. Her past two starts have been very poor, but she is capable of a spike performance that would be more than good enough to win this race.

Race 3 – Highway Handicap (1000m)

This is an interesting Highway Handicap. Portatorio is a lightly-raced gelding and he looks to have more upside than any other horse in this field. He ran good time at both Taree and Grafton and he has the benefit of Avdulla in the saddle.

Star Shaft has been building towards a win and he gets his chance this weekend. He has not missed a placing in his three previous third-up runs.

Mossman’s Gold is another horse with upside and is over the odds at his current price.

Race 4 – Your Local Greengrocer Handicap (2000m)

Chris Waller has a strong hand in this race. El Novio is set to start as favourite, but it is Destination Tucson that could offer the value.

She won in good style at Gosford last start and she has always looked like a filly that will improve when she gets out over more ground.

Colonel Custer was unlucky not to win last start and he can go one better this Saturday. Sonorous is a much better horse than his Australia debut suggests and he had plenty of excuses for that effort.

Race 5 – Sydney Markets Foundation Handicap (1100m)

This is the first of three races that the promising Spieth has been included in and he is the favourite in all three. He has gone to another level this preparation and he has a clear class edge over his rivals in this race.

The horse to beat if Spieth heads to another race is Yuma Desert. She has done nothing wrong in two race starts this preparation and she will make her own luck from barrier six.

Dark Eyes resumes for Gai Waterhouse and he is a much better chance than his odds suggest. It would not surprise to see Way Too Good produce an improved performance at a good price.

Race 6 – Stayers Cup (3200m)

Eleven stayers are set to contest what will likely be a very slow 3200 metres event. Tunes was only narrowly denied in the Adelaide Cup in February – his only previous start over 3200 metres – and he is one horse that is guaranteed to get the trip.

Zatopaz has the best recent form, but this is a sharp step up in trip and he does not win out of turn. Opinion has produced absolutely nothing so far this preparation, but this might be the trip he is looking for at this stage of his career and he is the class horse in this field.

Race 7 – Colin Gray Handicap (2000m)

Vassal is a progressive stayer and he looks very tough to beat in what is a fairly average race. He has now recorded three wins on the trot and I like the fact that Waller has given him a barrier trial between runs. The booking of Avdulla is key once again.

This is interesting placement with Doukhan as he is set to resume over 2000m. He doesn’t have a bad first-up record and he is a genuine stayer.

Tucanchoo looks the main danger and there was a lot to like about his first-up win.

Race 8 – June Stakes (1100m)

Spieth is currently a clear favourite in this race, but at the time of writing he still requires two more scratchings to be guaranteed a start. He is the horse to beat if he earns a start.

Outside of Spieth, this is a very open race. Oxford Poet was excellent first-up and should take a step forward this weekend. Brook Road comes out of a hot form race and he should be suited by the strong early tempo.

Danish Twist, Palazzo Pubblico and Le Cordon Bleu are all in great form, while Kuro trialled strongly between races.

Race 9 – Glenn Wheeler Handicap (1200m)

This is the final race that could feature Spieth. I sound like a broken record, but he is clearly the horse to beat. There is very little between the other leading chances and the market suggests that much.

All Summer Long rarely produces a poor performance and he does like soft ground and the same can be said about Cosmopol.

The horse that stands out at big odds is Shadow Lord. Two of his four race wins have come on a heavy track, he has never missed a placing second-up and he was good first-up. He is big overs at his current price.
