The Sunday Telegraph (Sydney) - - RACEDAY PREVIEW -

PORT MAC­QUARIE — ADAM SHERRY

RACE 1

Mon­ica’s Star pro­duced a solid ef­fort on de­but to fin­ish sec­ond to Zel­ly­may over this dis­tance here on Oct 11. Can go one bet­ter. Two Up was also run­nerup on de­but be­hind Tal­lis here Oct 12 over 1010m. Reuben James will find this eas­ier than re­cent ef­forts at Scone, Muswell­brook and New­cas­tle’s Beau­mont. Handy third two runs back.

Bet: Mon­ica’s Star win. Quinella and Tri­fecta 1, 2, 3, 4

RACE 2

Stormi­aire, mak­ing her de­but for the Wayne Wilkes sta­ble, has good speed and can con­trol the race. Top­weight Ser­bel­loni looks the main dan­ger and has placed sec­ond at three of past four starts. Leave Me Some raced greenly when sec­ond to Got The Gig­gles at Tun­curry on de­but. Fresh­ened and look for an­other for­ward show­ing.

Bet: Stormi­aire each way, Quinella and Tri­fecta 1, 4, 5, 12

RACE 3

Greenskeep­er hasn’t had much go his way in fin­ish­ing sec­ond at six of past seven starts. He only needs even luck and can break his maiden sta­tus this af­ter­noon. Au­tumn Rain started a short-priced favourite at Gunnedah first-up when a well-held third to Sir Clooney who ran them off their feet. Ca­pa­ble of bet­ter. Deed Of Gift worked home fairly for fifth at Ta­ree on de­but on Oct 18.

Bet: Greenskeep­er win. Quinella and Tri­fecta 3 / 4, 9, 10, 11

RACE 4

Ro­man Can­dle has worked well to be just be­hind the placeget­ters at three starts since a sec­ond at Scone back in Au­gust. Up to 2012m will suit. Oak­woods Hope was bet­ter last start when third in a class 1 at Tun­curry on Sept 13. Pri­vately Epic and Red In­tu­ition were sec­ond and third re­spec­tively here last start and can be there­abouts again.

Bet: Ro­man Can­dle win

RACE 5

Queens went from a class 1 to a class 3 at Ta­ree last start and wasn’t dis­graced when a two-length fifth. Back to her right grade here and will go close. Up The Stairs won at Tun­curry two starts back be­fore a game third to the handy First Time Lucky here on Oct 12. Yu Long Sheng Hui comes out of that same Tun­curry race where he was sec­ond. Meets Up The Stairs 1.5kg worse and has drawn wider this time. Bet: Queens win. Quinella and Tri­fecta 9 / 1, 3, 4

RACE 6

Wel­ter didn’t beat an overly strong field on de­but here on Oct 12 but the way he put them away late was very good. Up in class and weight but looks a promis­ing type. Per­fect will find this much eas­ier than the class 2 field she tack­led when re­sum­ing on Oct 11. Was held up late and should have fin­ished much closer. Ardee won here at first start for new trainer John Sprague on Oct 11.

Bet: Wel­ter win. Quinella 6, 12

RACE 7

Tal­lis broke his maiden sta­tus with a stylish all-the­way two-length win over Two Up when re­sum­ing here on Oct 12. Drawn out wide but looks a handy type and can win again. Full Of Spirit had no luck when down the track at Grafton in his fi­nal start last sea­son. Pre­vi­ous runs were good in­clud­ing a win here two starts back. For­mer Vic­to­rian Gisela’s Crown de­buted for new trainer Damien Lane with a handy win at Coon­am­ble on Oct 13.

Bet: Tal­lis win. Quinella and Tri­fecta 1, 4, 5, 9
