Race 5 No.1. Howmuchdoyouloveme. This is a very tricky race with the Waterhouse trained Sookie probably being the horse to beat. This gelding has proven he can carry big weights in the past and at his best he surely would win this race. He has not trialled and might be very fresh, but he won’t find an easier race first up with less weight. He certainly can win but Sookie is the one to beat. Quinella maybe or an each way bet on Howmuchdoyouloveme.
Race 6 No.3. Sea Lord. Won this race last year and looks well placed again this year. The obvious danger is Moment Of Change, but that horse is $1.70 and he has not won a race for a long time now. He also has a wide barrier and will be behind Sea Lord in the run.
