Grafton - Race 4 2.55pm AEST
Princess Elle has recorded two wins from as many starts since being transferred to the care of Jason Reilly and she is unbeaten at Grafton. She is clearly racing in career best form and she is a mare that makes her own luck right on the speed. 1015 metres is ideal for her and there is no reason that she can’t make it three wins on the trot.
Mildura - Race 7 4.30pm AEST
Midnight Cowboy won in impressive fashion at Mildura first-up and he was only narrowly denied at Swan Hill last start after he didn’t have a great deal of luck in running. He maps to get an easier run in transit in this contest and if he can maintain that type of form he is well-placed to return to winning form.
Launceston - Race 3 6.30pm AEST
The Inevitable made his racing debut with a fast-finishing second behind Clever Charlotte at Hobart and on exposed form he does have a clear class edge over what is far from the strongest field. He has the benefit of Sigrid Carr in the saddle and he has an excellent opportunity to record a maiden race win.
Launceston - Race 8 8:35pm AEST
There are only four horses left in this field following the scratchings and it is the outsider of the field that is the value. He is a much better horse than his last start effort at Hobart suggests and before that he scored a tough win. I like the fact that Scott Brunton has given him a barrier trial between races and he can surprise at juicy odds.
