Junction (Eagle Farm Race 7 No. 5)
This six-year-old Real Saga gelding trained by Mark Currie at Toowoomba has eight wins and 10 places from 35 starts. He didn’t seem to like the heavy going when he finished 3.8 lengths 7th in the Listed Australian Turf Club Trophy over 1400m at the Gold Coast on 13 March, then was going well until hampered at the 150m and getting swamped late for 0.7 length 4th over 1400m at Eagle Farm on 3 April. He drops 3kg from that run and should fight out the finish.
Bonaparte (Eagle Farm Race 9 No. 6):
This five-year-old Pierro gelding has three wins and eight places from 18 starts and has won two of five starts this campaign. He led into the straight but was run down late for 0.5 length 2nd over 1650m at Doomben on 3 March, then faded late for 2.05 lengths 4th over 1600m at Eagle Farm on 20 March. He comes back to 1400m here and is worth an each-way bet.
Kylease (Eagle Farm Race 8 No. 5):
This five-year-old Choisir mare is the early favourite in the Listed Ascot Quality Handicap over 1000m. She didn’t handle the heavy track when 10.9 lengths 7th over 1100m at Gold Coast on 13 March, then hit the front at the 250m but was run down late for 0.3 length 2nd over 1000m at Eagle Farm on 3 April. This happened at her previous run over 1000m at Eagle Farm and I am prepared to risk her here.

Our Terang Tips for Tuesday's meeting. Key Comments The rail is true. The best bet comes off a 9 length romping and looks every chance of going one better despite the rise in grade. Best Bet Galloping Guru (Terang Race 7 No.2) Galloping Guru atoned with 2 luckless runs and put a 9 length margin on them. Goes up in grade but looks progressive and can head to the front and prove tough to mow down. Expecting the support to come prior to
Our Kembla Grange Tips for Tuesday's meeting. Key Comments The rail is in 6 metres. The best bet comes up in race 3 and looks very hard to hold out from the good draw with Jennings steering and hailing from the Doyle yard. Best Bet Reigning King (Kembla Grange Race 3 No. 2) Bumped into a good one fresh and was solid in defeat. Its only win came second up in the past so this looks a very suitable race and slightly easier
Our Kempsey Tips for Monday's meeting. Key Comments The rail is true. The best bet has been heavily backed. Best Bet Fools Play (Kempsey Race 3 No. 7) Has claims against this bunch. Drawn perfectly and should give this race a shake from the kind barrier. The booking of Mc Guren is suitable and this race is ideal. $2.40 Best Each Way Hard To Dismiss (Kempsey Race 7 No.8 ) Doesn't win out of turn

Leading hope to break his maiden status. $2.70 Each Way Thinking Game (York Race 7 No. 8) He was overhauled late over 1940m
