Race 2 – 5.38pm – Listed Sires Stakes Sophomore Classic

Race 5 – 7.08pm – Group 1 Sires Stakes 2YO Males Final


Cosmic Major

Barrier 5 – Driver: Tim Williams

"A super run in defeat last week. He has a better draw to work with this week so it is a good opportunity for him to turn the tables."



Willow Bay

Barrier 6 – Driver: Sam Ottley

"He was doing his best work late last week. If he can get some luck in the running this week he is a good first4 chance."



Franco Mac

Barrier 9 – Driver: Jonny Cox

"He has drawn to get a soft trip this week and has come through last week well. With some luck in the running he is more than capable of being a first4 player."



Akuta

Barrier 11 – Driver: Natalie Rasmussen

"He went a cracking race last week. He will have to do some work from the draw in this but he has shown he has the class to make his presence felt again."

Bettor Twist

Barrier 5 – Driver: Natalie Rasmussen

Suntan

Barrier 3 – Driver: Joshua Dickie
