UK import having his second Australian start. He was heavily backed first up first at Pakenham where he sat outside the leader and booted clear to win by 5.8 lengths. He should roll forward again here from a wide gate and with Jamie Kah going on can keep his unbeaten Australian record intact. Looks a real talent!
Sonaree is second up from a spell. He finished fourth at Caulfield first up, fighting on well after riding a fast speed. He is a horse that improves significantly with a run under his belt and has a good Sandown record. I’ve mapped him outside lead again here and if he can find that spot I think he can be in this for a long way.
Queen Guinevere has come up as the early favourite in race number three on the card. She was okay last time out on her home track at Bendigo but doesn’t win out of turn. This looks an even contest so I am happy to risk her given she is the clear favourite in the early betting.

The rail is in the true position. Bullock has been riding in terrific form and comes up with a strong card again. He looks the jockey to follow on a card full of favourites that are hard to beat. Best Bet Sardonyx (Scone Race 2 No.3 ) A key scratching comes out and leaves Sardonyx very hard to beat. Maps well, Bullock steers and gets the right race here. Hard to beat at goods still. $2.90 Best Each Way
Our Newcastle tips for Monday's meeting. Key Comments The rail is in 5 metres. Heavy conditions expected so looking towards runners that are proven on wet tracks. Best Bet Dale (Newcastle Race 6 No. 2) No prizes for finding this runner but put in a solid effort on debut and drops miles in grade. In smartly at the weights here and with no jockey booked yet does look very hard to hold out in this thin maiden. $1.40 l
Our Nowra Tips for Monday's meeting. Key Comments The track is in the heavy range. The rail is true. Best Bet Deni Gal (Nowra Race 7 No. 4) None of these win out of turn but Deni Gal has good claims with a superb record at the track and a good record with Guymer steering. He has won twice from 6 goes aboard which is a very good sign given the horse is 3 wins from 22 starts. Hard to beat and maps
