RACE 5 (5) MANICURE: This is a quality fillies race with the impressive Victorian So Far Sokool in for a solid test from strong local opposition. One of those is MANICURE who is primed for a peak performance after two excellent efforts since resuming in hot form races over 1200m. Beaten by a bad barrier and wide run when she just failed to nail Houtzen in the G3 PJ Bell last time and the depth of that form stood up when seventh placed Catchy came out to beat the colts in the G2 Arrowfield Sprint at Randwick last Saturday. Gets her chance this time over the extra trip from a favourable draw.

RACE 6 (3) OUTRAGEOUS: Not sure the ATC Sires’ Produce is a reliable form line on face value given the luckless runs behind the upset winner El Dorado Dreaming. That said this impressive youngster from the Team Hawkes stable should have gone close to winning that G1 event after he had little room for most of the straight before bursting through late to claim third place. This has been his target race and he looks the right type to come into his own over the extra 200 metres. Appeals as a strong each-way play in an open race.

RACE 8 (6) INTERLOCUTER: In a wide open race this lightly-raced import is ready to find the form that saw him win three races from 1600m to 1900m last spring before placing in the G2 Villiers Stakes. He has put in two encouraging efforts since resuming in unsuitable shorter events and ticks the right boxes as he boasts a strong Randwick, is unbeaten when third-up and is well drawn to enjoy a soft run. A positive report about his progress in training from the Godolphin stable makes him a sound bet at attractive odds.
