(3) STREET BYTE im­proved with blink­ers last time out but starts wide out.

Watch debu­tante (14) AFRICAN DAISY. If fan­cied, she could beat the males.

RACE 2 (1,600M)

(8) ONLY TO WIN re­ceives weight all round and will cap­i­talise.

Sta­ble­mates (1) SO­CIAL OR­DER (comes off a rest), (2) SIL­VER GOD (now gelded) and (6) CAR­BON ATOM (needed his last out­ing) are all ca­pa­ble of tak­ing hon­ours. How­ever, three-year-old Car­bon Atom has a handy weight and gets the nod. Watch the money.

RACE 4 (1,600M)

(11) UN­TIL DAWN en­joys this track and fin­ished nearly four lengths in front of (6) ITSMYDARLIN (1.5kg bet­ter) last time out. How­ever, the lat­ter needed the out­ing and could turn it around.

(2) CHITENGO was rested af­ter her first vic­tory but ap­pears to have plenty more to of­fer.

(9) GOLD SHADES could get into the pic­ture on re­cent form.

(4) SAMARRA catch­ing up late.

(3) CATKIN needed his last out­ing and, from pole po­si­tion, will be prom­i­nent through­out. (7) PENNY ROYAL and sta­ble­mate (13) RE­GAL GRAD­U­A­TION will need to get luck from wide draws.

RACE 6 (1,475M)

RACE 7 (1,475M)

(5) MARDI GRAS was only 3.5 lengths off sub­se­quent July win­ner Do It Again re­cently. He had a fresh­ener last time out and and should be hard to peg back in the leg of this Grand Se­ries.

(7) BOLD VIK­ING beat (9) FULL OF AT­TI­TUDE by 0.75 lengths. The lat­ter came out and franked the form.
