Horse: Asharani
Message: (Saturday, Randwick Race 4, JHB Carr Stakes) Asharani has won two from two since joining (Lees’) stable, and faces her stiffest test so far. But she is doing everything right, and deserves her chance in a Group 3.

Horse: Le Romain
Message: (Saturday, Randwick Race 7, All Aged Stakes) He has raced in winkers on a couple of occasions, and it was time for a change (blinkers). Hopefully, they will help sharpen him as he is coming back from the mile of the Doncaster and has drawn the outside (barrier 14).

Horse: Miss Que
Message: (Saturday, Randwick Race 8, Hall Mark Stakes) Blinkers on Miss Que in the Hall Mark Stakes. It’s not going to be an easy task, but we’ll be more positive on her than at recent starts.

Horse: Take It Intern
Message: (Saturday, Randwick Race 9, Jcdecaux Hcp) Take It Intern is a nice horse, who will definitely take improvement from this first-up run. All the same, I’m giving him an each-way chance from a decent draw (barrier 5).

Horse: Articus
Message: (Saturday, Randwick Race 9, Jcdecaux Hcp) Articus would like it softer, but has raced well fresh in the past.

Horse: Al Mah Haha
Message: (Saturday, Randwick Race 1, TAB Highway Hcp) Even with 62kg for Saturday, Burleigh and connections were not tempted to claim as Al Mah Haha is big and strong enough to cope. He’s not an apprentice’s horse, he needs an experienced senior. ‘Richie’ (jockey Richard Bensley) understands him, rode him in the Goulburn final and most of the time. Al Mah Haha has freshened up and thriving with an impressive jump out at Goulburn on Tuesday morning.

Horse: Champagne Cuddles
Message: (Saturday, Randwick Race 7, All Aged Stakes) It was a fantastic run (in the TJ Smith Stakes) and she was probably a bit stiff not to run second. Once again, she was up against some really good horses (in the All Aged Stakes on Saturday) and she’s been knocking on the door in Group Ones. She deserves her chance at it. It’s not an easy race, it never is in Group Ones, but she’s really well.

Horse: Greysful Glamour
Message: (Saturday, Randwick Race 3, Frank Packer Plate) The filly became bogged down in a number of wet tracks this campaign. The Victoria Oaks runner-up will take on the boys in the 2000-metre contest having been reserved for fillies grade so far in the autumn. They went too quick the other day. She’s shown previously her best isn’t on wet ground. Blinkers will be put on her to try to give her a bit of confidence, but on her work she’ll run really well.

Horse: Lanciato
Message: (Saturday, Randwick Race 7, All Aged Stakes) He’s a little bit of a specialist in that he needs good ground, he probably doesn’t quite run a mile and 1200 metres is probably a touch short for him. He’s really moulded himself into a 1400 metre, dry track, lightweight horse. The stable wants Josh Parr to adopt more aggressive riding tactics on Lanciato. He’s in good shape and it’s just a matter of a few things going his way now.
