The Sunday Telegraph (Sydney) - - RACEDAY PREVIEW - with Shayne O’Cass

RACE 1

3. Hem­merle is a first starter from the as­tute Danny Wil­liams sta­ble. His trial was a good one; best to keep a good eye on any mean­ing­ful mar­ket moves. 4. Soir De Lune turned in an en­cour­ag­ing first run at Wy­ong over 1200m when $2.70 fav. 2. Al­lan­dale Raider raced handy but faded in a harder race at Hawkes­bury at his first out­ing.

Bet­ting strat­egy: Hem­merle win

RACE 2

4. Lady Eleanor is an­other Danny Wil­liams horse. The daugh­ter of Mel­bourne Cup win­ner Amer­i­cain is also out of a Dane­hill mare so she is bred to be good. Only has to run up to her third on de­but to Lu­val­uva to take this out. 1. African Rain­bow, from the Bjorn Baker camp, has tri­alled nicely for this but won’t be run­ning. 6. Xaar­foxy­lady has placed three times from five runs and should be ready to peak. Bet­ting strat­egy: Lady Eleanor win, Box tri­fecta Nos.1,4,6

RACE 3

7. Lady Demi was a barn­storm­ing win­ner on de­but in a 1200m maiden at Moruya. The daugh­ter of noted fresh sire Den­man ran 6 of 8 at Nowra first-up on Apr 1 but was only beaten 1.6 lens. That was 1000m, so the 1200m is right up her al­ley. 1. Rumba Queen is yet an­other of the Danny Wil­liams horses run­ning to­day. 8. Rush­man is one at odds.

Bet­ting strat­egy: Lady Demi win, Rush­man place

RACE 4

4. Zither is a daugh­ter of Com­mands whose prog­eny in­vari­ably race well fresh. In­deed, this first-up­per was an im­pres­sive and pop­u­lar win­ner at her first start at Kem­bla back on Mel­bourne Cup day last year. Her two tri­als are in­dica­tive of a horse go­ing well enough to take this out. 1. Bos­ton Light bat­tled on well enough in a deep race at Hawkes­bury last start. But has a big weight and drawn wide. 2. Mileage has at times shown city class abil­ity.

Bet­ting strat­egy: Zither win

RACE 5

10. With Pur­pose is a su­perbly bred filly by Pierro out of Paprika who is per­haps best known for be­ing run down in the last stride by Phelan Ready in the Magic Mil­lions. Turned in a big de­but at Muswell­brook in a 1000m race that was run in fast time. The ex­tra 100m is per­fect. 11. Wrig­gles is a lo­cally trained filly who has tri­alled well enough to have a say in the fin­ish. 2. Ex­plo­sive Mis­sile has tal­ent and like­wise has looked good at the tri­als. Bet­ting strat­egy: With Pur­pose win, box tri­fecta Nos.2,3,10,11, duet Nos.10, 11

RACE 6

2. Sub­ban is a very well bred son of Sav­abeel trained by Bryce Heys who knows the breed as well as any and bet­ter than most. The geld­ing was first-up and hav­ing only his sec­ond start when a tough, nar­row yet im­pres­sive win­ner here in a 1400m maiden on Mar 26. The step up to 1400m is per­fect. 5. Cape Wick­ham has al­ways shown tal­ent and will get bet­ter with each run. He is sec­ond-up here and go­ing down in grade. 4. Na­payshini has only won 3 from 41 but can fig­ure at odds.

Bet­ting strat­egy: Sub­ban win, quinella Nos.2,5

RACE 7

6. Mackel­lar ab­so­lutely stormed home first-up to go down by un­der a length. That was in a 1280m Class 1 at Muswell­brook. She has 1400m to­day and is a lot closer to home. 3. Swiss was a very solid win­ner here on de­but and has been ter­rific in her two runs after that. The trainer has found the per­fect race for her to­day. What­ever beats her, if any­thing, will win. 1. Mara­bel is the best of the oth­ers along with 8. Ons Vier, a last-start win­ner. Bet­ting strat­egy: Mackel­lar win, Swiss win, quinella Nos.3,6
