MONTREAL (Race 2, 1.20pm, 1200m, No. 8, rider Tommy Berry, 57.5kg).
Montreal (Lonhro/Cirque Du Soileil), three-year-old colt. This colt showed very good ability winning on debut and now makes the step to Saturday metropolitan class which he gives every impression he will handle comfortably. He’s improved from his first up run, he has been training very strongly and in a race which has some quality about it, he’s a good winning chance.
THE BULL (Race 7, 4.20pm, 2000m, No. 14, rider Brenton Avdulla, 54kg).
The Bull (Lope De Vega/It’s Houdini), four-year-old gelding. He has been up and running for a long time but shows absolutely no sign of training off, he keeps rising to every challenge and having now had the run over 2000m, he should run it out strongly. He finally gets some weight relief on Saturday and in his first attempt at Listed grade, he is an each-way chance.
SWEET REDEMPTION (Race 8, 5.00pm, 1500m, No. 13, rider Brenton Avdulla, 54kg).
Sweet Redemption (Snitzel/Redeeming Lass), four-year-old mare. She continues to thrive in her work and is demonstrating that on the racetrack with some top class performances. She is a very well-travelled mare who deserves to break through for a Stakes win, she is in terrific form and in a strong sort of event, she is a good each-way chance.

GOLD EMBLEM (Race 4, 2.49pm, 1150m, No. 3, rider Paul King, 57.5kg).
Gold Emblem (Medaglia D’Oro/Bella Brocco), three-year-old gelding. He has tuned up for his first up run with two solid trials, this gelding showed good ability as a two-year-old and has strengthened and developed into a lovely three-year-old. He is training well, he has had the benefit of race experience in previous preparations and first up is a good each-way chance.
FLYING DEE JAY (Race 5, 3.21pm, 1350m, No. 4, rider Paul King, 56.5kg).
Flying Dee Jay (High Chaparral/D J Lightning), three-year-old filly. She trialled well behind the smart Miss Debutante before finding them a bit sharp on debut over 1200m in town, she has taken enormous benefit from the run, the step up to 1350m is in her favour and expect to see significant improvement at her second start. Each-way chance.

Rail: 3m 1300m-W/Post, True Remainder
POLDARK (Race 6, 4.05pm, 1500m, No. 6, rider Rachel King (a2), 56kg).
Poldark (Pentire/Bluegrass), four-year-old gelding. He will improve with the run under his belt this preparation and stepping up in trip. He is bred to stay, all he wants is more ground and while this distance is probably still short of his best, he is still capable of running a good race in this sort of class. He’s an each-way chance, with further improvement to come.
SEBRARIAN (Race 6, 4.05pm, 1500m, No. 7, rider Adam Hyeronimus, 56.5kg).
Sebrarian (Sebring/Anabarbarian), three-year-old gelding. The blinkers have been applied to this gelding to spark him up in his races, he has been working well all preparation but needs to deliver on raceday. He definitely has the ability and the gives the impression that the further he goes, the better he will be. If he can bounce back he’s a very good each-way chance.
