Race 1 – Maiden Plate – 1000m

A few to watch here, Nantucket ($2.20) resumes after a 23-week spell, where she placed behind Valaquenta and Our Playboy in the autumn as a two-year-old, which is good form for this hence the skinny quote.

Also Strategy ($5.50) debuts for the Lloyd Kennewell team, a $1.7m yearling purchase by I Am Invincible out of a Snitzel dam. Aquis Farm own a portion of this colt and with that price tag and breeding, it is well worth keeping an eye on.

Race 5 – Benchmark 64 – 1100m

Mick Price’s in-form Raysim ($7) broke his maiden in style last start and looks capable of making it two in a row up against a field of this caliber.

The main danger is the grey Kuna Magic ($3.70), who won in spectacular style from the back of the field on debut, drawing comparisons with Chautauqua. She looked sharp in a recent jumpout (orange silks with white sleeves), and may be too good for them here.


Race 7 – Ladies Day Cup – 1600m

The rescheduled Ladies Day Cup at listed level is here with a stronger than usual lineup for a midweek contest.

Looks Like Elvis ($5) has been racing against the absolute A Graders and accounting himself pretty well, luckless in the Group 3 Shannon Stakes and running really well in the Group 1 Epsom Handicap. This is a lot easier and he’s got the class factor over a lot of them, particularly at his pet distance.

Duca Valentinois ($26) won this race in 2017 for Godolphin, and at the long odds could be a knockout chance each way.
