SATURDAY 19 AUGUST - RANDWICK

Rail Position: +3M ENTIRE CIRCUIT.

GOLD STANDARD (Race 5, 2:25PM, 1300M, No.8, jockey Tommy Berry, 53kg)
Gold Standard (Sebring/Consiton Gem) takes a step up in class as he contests the Group 3 ‘Up And Coming Stakes’ over 1300m. The good looking son of Sebring won his last start at Canterbury impressively, he’s improved since that run and now he has a chance to show just how good he is at his first Black Type assignment. He has been working well at home, he has plenty of class about him and we are confident he will be right there in the finish in his toughest test to date. A good winning chance.

ECUADOR (Race 6, 3:00PM, 1400M, No.6, jockey Adam Hyeronimus, 59kg)
Ecuador (High Chaparral/Bak Da Princess) takes on the mighty Winx in the Group 2 ‘Warwick Stakes’. The gelding is in great form at home, he has had three solid trials leading into the run, although he will certainly improve fitness wise for the run. Winx will be a tough nut to crack but he has finished second to her before, and he can do it again on Saturday. He has a great each-way chance.

SWEET REDEMPTION (Race 7, 3:40PM, 1300M, No.4, jockey Adam Hyeronimus, 55kg)
Sweet Redemption (Snitzel/Redeeming Lass) runs in a Group 3 open race for fillies and mares. She has been coming up a treat this preparation and we expect her to give a very bold showing. Traditionally she improves with the first up run under her belt and we expect that to be the case again, although she is certainly fit enough to do herself justice and pass the post in front. She has drawn well in barrier 1 and weighted well. She has a good winning chance.

SATURDAY 19 AUGUST - KEMBLA GRANGE

Rail Position: TRUE ENTIRE CIRCUIT.

HISTORY REPEATS (Race 2, 12:59PM, 1200M, No.5, jockey Grant Buckley, 56kg)
History Repeats (More Than Ready/Tuesday Joy) resumes her preparation and makes her second career start on the racecourse. She has been really impressing in her morning track work and this was replicated with a good second in her only trial this preparation two weeks ago. She is a fine filly who will only improve with age, we are expecting a very good run first up and she has a very strong winning chance.

DANTE ROSSETTI (Race 3, 1:34PM, 1400M, No.4, jockey Blake Spriggs, 58kg)
Dante Rossetti (Sebring/Cute Emily) has improved no end from his debut run at Warwick Farm two weeks ago. The penny has really dropped with this colt, his morning track work has improved in leaps and bounds, he’s much more relaxed and is finding the line well. The step up in trip will be a massive benefit and he has a good winning chance.

POLDARK (Race 8, 4:44PM, 1600M, No.10, jockey Koby Jennings, 56.5kg)
Poldark (Pentire/Bluegrass) was disappointing last start and you can put a line through that run as nothing went to plan for the gelding. He’s much more focused in his track work since that run and we are confident of a much improved performance. If he breaks well and gets into a good rhythm, he has a great winning chance.

SUNDAY 20 AUGUST - PAKENHAM (SYNTHETIC)

Rail Position: TRUE ENTIRE CIRCUIT.

MIREBEAU (Race 4, 2:25PM, 1600M, No.3, jockey Beau Mertens (a), 58.5kg)
Mirebeau (Al Maher/Misstari) steps back up in trip which he will certainly appreciate. He tackles the synthetic surface at Pakenham for the first time, and if he takes to it well, we are expecting a much improved run. He’s drawn well in barrier 2 and he has a good each-way chance.
