We’re back racing on the Hillside this Wednesday.

Eight races are set to be run and won with the rail in the true position.

The track is a good 4 and conditions may not be too pleasant for horses and participants, with temperatures expected to reach the high 30s.

Our Ladbrokes preview can be found below.

Race 1 - 3:40pm AEDT

FAST FORM PLATE MAIDEN SW (1400 METRES)

Jammin Jimmy was well supported on debut and the four year old son of Jimmy Creed raced accordingly.

Whilst he didn’t land the prize, he performed very well and will have taken good improvement from the outing. 

From an awkward draw he settled worse than midfield but was always deep and worked home strongly into second.

The slight rise in trip will suit and he’ll appreciate getting out onto the bigger track.

John Allen retains the ride for the inform Mitch Freedman stable and with any luck from the draw, he’ll take some beating.

Race 2 - 4:15pm AEDT

ROYAL MEETING - GROUP 1 WINNER NOW GROUP 1 SIRE MAIDEN 3YO SW (1400 METRES)

Grid Girl makes her Australian debut after having the two starts in NZ.

Now under the care of team Hayes, the three year old filly has placed in both outings and looks to have plenty of upside.

A daughter of Time Test, she has been given three jump outs and has performed particularly well in two of those.

Her most recent, which was over 1100m at Werribee, saw her work to the line under little pressure alongside two very smart gallopers. 

1400m looks ideal for her kicking off and she’s drawn to get the right run under Jye McNeil.

Race 3 - 4:50pm AEDT

TOBIN BROTHERS CELEBATING LIVES HANDICAP BM64 (1600 METRES)

Warlords recorded a solid first up victory when resuming off a break.

The son of Saxon Warrior had shown good ability early on, saluting on debut, but after turning out two disappointing performances he was gelded and sent to the paddock. 

The procedure seems to have had the desired effect as he looked very good in a Cranbourne jump out before getting the job done first up over 1400m.

With that run under his belt, the rise to 1600m looks ideal and I think he’ll continue to improve.

Celine Gaudray goes onboard, she’ll take 1.5kgs off and can afford him every chance form he low draw.

Race 4 - 5:25pm AEDT

JOCKEY WATCH HANDICAP BM70 (2400 METRES)

Speranzoso has been racing in super form and showed plenty of determination to score at Caulfield last start.

Given a short freshen up, he looked strong winning a mile jump out two weeks ago and comes here in top order.

The former UK galloper took a while to hit his straps but has continued to improve this campaign and he looks perfectly placed here over the 2400m.

Damian Lane partnered him to victory last start and he will again do the steering for Clayton Douglas.

Race 5 - 6:00pm AEDT

EVERGREEN TURF HANDICAP BM64 (1800 METRES)

Marion Street didn’t have the best of luck when resuming at Pakenham but bounced back with a solid effort there 14 days later.

After settling in the second half of the field she worked home nicely, giving the impression she’s ready for further. 

Only lightly raced, she broke her maiden in good style last prep, when stepping up to 1723m at just her third start.

A daughter of Reliable Man, she looks well suited up to this trip and will appreciate the drop in the weights.

Blake Shinn sticks with her and she’s set to receive a cosy run from the inside draw.

Race 6 - 6:30pm AEST

BET WITH MATES HANDICAP BM70 (1400 METRES)

Hell Hound didn’t get things to suit first up but I’m confident she can bounce back here.

After settling at the tail she was left flat footed when the sprint went on and never really looked comfortable in the straight. 

She’s proven herself a very capable mare and was performing well in stronger company last campaign.

The inside draw will see her settle closer in the run under Michael Dee, who goes onboard for the Price / Kent team.

Race 7 - 7:00pm AEDT

IVE HANDICAP BM64 (1300 METRES)

Hazel Baby returned to the races in fine form, shooting through along the rail to take out the last event at Moonee Valley earlier this month.

The Toronado mare has performed consistency throughout her nine start career and apart from her debut run on a heavy track, she’s always been thereabouts.

The form around her is solid and she’s winner at her only start over this track and trip. 

Jamie Kah stays in the saddle and from gate two she’s set to enjoy a similar run to last time.

Race 8 - 7:30pm AEST

SAME RACE MULTI HANDICAP BM70 (1400 METRES)

Eye Of The Eagle produced a very encouraging effort when resuming at Moonee Valley.

The four year old has always displayed plenty of natural talent and was unlucky not have finished closer on a couple of occasions last preparation. 

His first up appearance showed he’s come back in good order and the way he found the line certainly suggests he’ll appreciate the rise to 1400m.

He’s drawn to get the right run and Jamie Mott knows him well.
