Race 2: MOLLY DOOKER (1, Samantha Ottley), 2600m std: “First starter, who qualified poor, but expect a better showing.”

Race 4: ROBYN’S GEM (11, Sheree Tomlinson), mob. 2000m: “Depends on what she does on Friday.”

Race 7: MANINTHEMIRROR (7, Laura McKay) & HIS ROYAL HARNESS (9, Sheree Tomlinson), mob. 2600m: “Maninthemirror got a win and a Met Multiplier two weeks ago but is up in grade and has a tough draw.”

“His Royal Harness had a good win two weeks ago and seems well. Hopes’ horse (Saying Grace) looks the hardest to beat but if he get luck he can threaten.”
