Race 1: 2-3-6-4. Wet track is the genuine query but otherwise in great form and should be able to dictate this up front.
Race 2: 2-5-14-1. Shocking maiden, running out of chances but should be in the finish on recent form. Needs to take closer order early for Darmanin today from the inside alley.
Race 3: 4-1-5-3. Best Value see below.
Race 4: 2-1-11-8. Around $6-$7 he might be the each way play in a rather open race. Big win fresh, a little flat second up but is better suited back on this track.
Race 5: 7-1-2-3. Looks about the best race of the carnival. Rather short Mystic Journey but time to beat the older brigade if she's to go over and attack the Melbourne carnival.
Race 6: 3-1-8-6. He's quirky, but banking on ability to get Mandela Effect home fresh who as he has fairly high ceiling. Chillout a genuine threat third up too.
Race 7: 4-3-1-2. Each way at around $6, she looked the best value in a competitive Strutt Stakes. Second up effort at Geelong against the older horses was strong.
Race 8: 3-2-1-4. Decent enough edition of the cup but sticking with the local Eastender to take it out. Won two in a row, fit now and over 2400m, he's probably the best stayer in the field.
Race 9: 6-2-8-9. Best ...
