Rail Position: + 2m 1200m to 350m, cutaway applies

Track Conditions: Good 4

Track Comments: Should be nice and fair today. Long back straight from 1400m shute.

Race 4, No 2 Tuivasa
Nice trial at Hawksbury and he didn’t have all that much luck here fresh in a bumping dual down the straight. He does draw wide but he has 600m to get in and generally jumps poorly anyway. I think the penny has dropped and he certainly has the ability with clear running $5.00
Race 5, No 1 Road To Shangri La
Didn’t mind him first up, he let them get away from them a bit but will be much better for it. Second-up last prep slowly away but still won here at same distance so I think he has been set for this and a bit of support in the market boosts confidence $9.50

Jean Van Overmeire still claiming 1.5kg and has 5 rides today. Win 21.74% and Place 52.17% here at Bathurst and the average price winner is $6.50 worth following.

Race 2, No 4 Harperzozo
Better from the run at Newcastle and was a good second up run last prep 3rd. Backed from $5.00 into $3.30
Bathurst R5: 1, 5
Bathurst R6: 2, 5, 6, 7, 12
Bathurst R7: Field
Bathurst R8: 4, 5, 12

Rail Position: True

Track Conditions: Synthetic

Track Comments: Always plays reasonably fair

Race 3, No. 3 Marco Man
Has been very good this time in and competed in town last start in the highway race beaten less than 3 lengths to Zamex who has since won another highway. The favorite is clearly the danger but it also has his share of problems as that it’s been over 12 months since he raced where he won his maiden in good style.
Race 6, No.3  Lord Denman
Is never far away in this grade and is a synthetic winner. You are getting overs of $10 due to the wide gate.

Brendan “Snowy” Ward is just two wins off the Canberra premiership and has a very good book of 6 rides today .

Race 5 No. 8 Orsippus
Blinkers go on here for this market mover who steps up to a distance for the first time. Has been backed from $8 into $4.80
R5 (Leg 1): 4,6,7,8,9,11
R6 (Leg 2): 1,3,5,12
R7 (Leg 3): 1,2,3,4,9
R8 (Leg 4): 4
$30 gets you 25%
