Hawkesbury - Race 4 2:40pm AEDT
Diamond Thunder has only had one race start so far, but he has stamped himself as a horse to follow and looks well placed to break his maiden at Hawkesbury this afternoon. The son of Dawn Approach took up the running at Randwick on debut and was only nabbed late by the likes of Pin Sec and Olympic. Mark Newnham’s horses are flying and Diamond Thunder can return the stable another win.
Bendigo - Race 4 3:30pm AEDT
River House will resume from a 15-week spell at Bendigo today, but he absolutely flies fresh and strikes a very winnable one here. The Cape Blanco was a strong and consistent performer for Matt Enright last time out; recording two impressive victories before ending his campaign fourth in a BM70 sprint at Caulfield. This is a drop in class from that race and he’ll take plenty of beating.
Hawkesbury - Race 7 4:25pm AEDT
Foxdown has returned to the races in pleasing form this time and looks ready to peak third-up at Hawkesbury today. The five-year-old dusted off the cobwebs with a credible performance for fourth at Bathurst last month before running two-lengths second to Godolphin galloper Cloak over 1300m last time out. The increased trip will suit, he’s drawn ideally and the $8 on offer at publish does look a touch of overs.
Bendigo - Race 8 5pm AEDT
Jawwaal has not been seen at the races since November, but he returned several pleasing efforts last time in and does look to have an edge over today’s rivals. The three-year-old son of Snitzel didn’t finish outside of the first three in five spring starts and was an impressive winner over 1400m here at Bendigo most notably.
