FAIRVIEW PREVIEWS

RACE 1 (1,900M)

(1) ROCKET RIDER put a good local debut, albeit on the turf last time out. He should go well if he handles the Polytrack.

(2) ZAKUMI has his third start as a gelding and that looks to have done the trick. He should also be in the shake-up.

(8) LONG SHOT is slowly finding form and can earn.

RACE 2 (1,300M)

(1) SOUL SACRIFICE is crying out for career win No. 2 and should get into the action. He finished well last start and will have come on from that run.

The main danger could be (5) CRIME OF PASSION, who was a good maiden winner last start. She gets a good draw and must be included.

RACE 3 (1,300M)

(1) AGE OF AQUARIUS has been thereabouts in his career thus far and should again be in the firing line. The drop in trip will suit and, with a positive ride, could prove hard to beat.

(6) FIRTH OF CLYDE has been disappointing in his last two starts but can start to improve.

(8) ARABIAN APPROVAL has an exacta chance if repeating his last run.

RACE 4 (1,300M)

(1) SAIL INTOTHECLOUDS has finished runner-up in her last two starts and should fight this out. She was slightly disappointing on the Poly early on but is worth another chance.

The value in the race could be (14) STONE TOWN. She is a five-year-old mare and must have a problem or two. She has been running on and will enjoy this trip with Yeni up.

RACE 5 (2,200M)

Some collateral form that needs attention.

(3) NAVAL INTELLIGENCE gets the nod after running on over shorter and this distance should be right up his alley.

(2) SANFONEIRO ran on strongly last start and must be a runner.

Front-runner (8) ZOO BISCUIT could defy the handicapper if allowed to dictate.

RACE 6 (1,200M)

(4) DADDY COOL has been knocking on the door in recent starts and must be a runner. He has enjoyed being fitted with blinkers which stay on and he must be included although jumping from a wide draw.

(12) BLACK PLATINUM enjoyed the Polytrack last start and should earn again.

(3) STRONG MAN SAM and (1) HAMLETS SPEEDO can pop up.

RACE 7 (1,300M)

A competitive Aloe Handicap where (2) GOLDANDSILVER could prove best. She has run against some decent sorts and, although trying the surface for the first time, must be the one to beat.

(1) GARDEN TREASURE has her second run after a rest and will strip fitter.

(5) RUSTIC ROMANCE is better than her last run suggests.

RACE 8 (1,600M)

(2) FIVE MOONS was fitted with blinkers last start and that seemed to do the trick. They stay on here and Five Moons should be in the firing line, particularly from drawn No. 1.

(3) CARELESS LOVE may have found the distance too far in her last two starts and is better suited to this trip.

(10) STRONG SCENT gets weight off the back and has a money chance.
