The Sunday Telegraph (Sydney) - - RACEDAY PREVIEW - with SHAYNE O’CASS

RACE 1

1. She’s Choosie won her first three starts then went to Doomben and was all at sea on the Heavy 8. Hope­fully it’s not too wet for her to­day but any­thing in the slow range should be rea­son­able. One thing in her favour is she should lead. 2. Ja­maican Dream is a de­but win­ner from the pow­er­ful Paul Perry yard. 5. Zof­fay Magic was an nose be­hind Ja­maican Dream at her first run.

Bet­ting strat­egy: She’s Choosie will be short but will win

RACE 2

14. Shiver Me Tim­bers has placed at 5 of 7 starts. Gets her big chance to­day sec­ond-up from a favourable draw. 6. Thun­der has been un­placed in all six runs but is rarely far away. Will be strong late. 5. Rest­less is another of Paul Perry’s big chances on the card.

Bet­ting strat­egy: Shiver Me Tim­bers win

RACE 3

7. Grand Peril is win­less still af­ter 23 starts but the daugh­ter of Dubleo has placed at al­most one-third of her runs. Drawn a bit wide but that may not mat­ter as much on the wet track. 9. Mon­ster High has been pretty close at her past three. In­clude in the plac­ings. 10. Per­fect Times has the ser­vices of Vic­torem’s jockey Ben Looker and thus will get ev­ery chance.

Bet­ting strat­egy: Grand Peril each way, box tri­fecta Nos. 2,7,9,10

RACE 4

4. Stoke It Up is a last-start win­ner who has drawn four so is al­most cer­tain to be up on the speed. Ob­vi­ously a very fit and in-form gal­loper and can take the next step. 5. Josie’s Saga is ‘3312’ at her past four runs. Con­sider. 7. Du­rant is a Gabby En­gle­brecht­trained son of Un­cle Mo and will find this com­pany eas­ier than what he faced at Goul­burn and Or­ange.

Bet­ting strat­egy: Stoke It Up win

RACE 5

4. Prada Miss is a High­way win­ner at Rose­hill from back in the win­ter. The lo­cally trained mare will ap­pre­ci­ate the step up to 1400m af­ter her clos­ing ef­fort in the Quirindi Light­ning first-up. 2. I Wanna Be A Jeep is no doubt go­ing to have con­sid­er­able sup­port. Fit and won two of his past three. 6. Im­age Of Love has won at the venue.

Bet­ting strat­egy: Prada Miss win, box tri­fecta Nos. 2,4,6,7,8

RACE 6

6. Elite Dubleo is a good, hon­est sprinter. A win­ner of eight of 40 starts with another 17 plac­ings, this geld­ing was at his best as re­cently as last start at Grafton, win­ning over 1000m in fast time. Loves the wet and will be there from start to fin­ish. 7. Melted Mo­ments has won three of five runs here at home. 11. Devlann is back sharply in dis­tance but is fly­ing.

Bet­ting strat­egy: Elite Dubleo each way, Devlann place

RACE 7

4. Hirokin fought back to win Bathurst Cup. We were a bit con­cerned about him at 1900m but trainer Jar­rod Austin said he has been placed up to 2200m in town. 11. Kasharn is up from 1550m to­day but he is in good nick and has the draw to tag along in be­hind the speed. 5. Loud Enough just doesn’t run poorly.

Bet­ting strat­egy: Hirokin each way, box tri­fecta Nos.4,5,7,10,11

RACE 8

1. Call Me Brad has a big weight with no claim but he can carry the 62kg with the off­set of the in­side draw. 8. No­rah Girl has the ser­vices of Greg Ryan and it’ll take one of his best rides to ne­go­ti­ate the wide al­ley. 11. The Scary Ferri will strip fit­ter for first-up fourth. 2. Two ‘N’ Wellgo has claims with Chad Lever up.

Bet­ting strat­egy: Call Me Brad win
