Buzz Bomb is ticking for a win

Race 1 (1,200m)

(3) AMANATTO made a promising Vaal debut. The experience could count enough to see her home.

(16) FEEL THE WIND showed some pace on debut and should come on with the experience.

(15) JET LAVISH needed her last run on the Poly. Back on turf, and blinkers back on.

(14) PULL A FAST ONE has shown some ability. Money chance.


Race 2 (1,200m)

(14) WORLD PHAROAH just needed his last run and that form has panned out well.

(11) MY BOY LOLLIPOP flopped on the Poly after making a smart debut. He is still the most experienced runner in the field.

Race 3 (1,400m)

(1) BLOWIN IN THE WIND has her first outing for the in-form Alyson Wright stable.

(2) FACILE showed up well on debut over course and distance. She should come on a few lengths.

(6) LITTLEBLACKGEM is better than her last effort. Extra suits.

(10) THE QUEEN BEE seems limited but never runs badly.


Race 4 (1,600m)

(3) BUZZ BOMB was a beaten favourite when making his handicap debut. Can improve with fair weight.

(4) VERMACILLI drops back to what may prove to be a more suitable trip.

(10) CRESTED EAGLE has drawn out but has shown some improvement of late and is down in class.

(12) DOWN BY THE RIVER is not the easiest but has come well of late and can finish in the money.


Race 6 (1,950m)

(8) ESCAPE ARTIST has been consistent. She takes a 3kg drop in handicap, together with a big drop in class.

(5) PINSTRIPE has been trying further but could prove more effective over this trip.
