RACE 3 (4) DIA DE REYES Horseform: Murwillumbah trainer Matt Dunn is the master of the Highway races and he clearly has confidence that this smart 4YO can be the first horse to win three of these events by scratching two of his stablemates and electing to send this horse to Sydney rather than start him at Ipswich. Won his first Highway over 1800m at Randwick last spring and picked up his second when successful first-up over 1200m in slow going at this course on May 19. Happy to follow the stable lead as he has won second up in the past and the month between runs sets him up nicely for this more suitable distance under favourable conditions.

RACE 4 (2) SO SPLENDID Horseform: Talented Savabeel mare won first-up over 1400m at Warwick Farm last prep and is clearly set to repeat after two strong trials that have her primed for this average event for her own sex. Handles affected ground confidently and is well placed over this trip fresh after she went out in winning form in January with a victory over 1800m at Sandown.

RACE 8 (6) OZARK Horseform: Ample pace in this field sets up the race for a strong closer and this Godolphin runner fits the bill as he will enjoy a soft run from his kind draw. Produced big finish first-up to win over 1000m at Randwick in April under 60.5kg then never got as crack at them after a slow start when a close fifth over 1100m at this course on June 2. Should be right in the mix in this wide open event with a 2kg drop off his last run.
