ROSEHILL R1 #2  SMART IMAGE  $3.10

I thought Smart Image was super on debut when winning at Warwick Farm. He savaged the line once he was in the clear and looked like he had a good desire to win. I think he will be even more suited with some more pace on.

DOOMBEN R9 #7 GREEN JACKET $12.20

He was strong through the line, beating Reus two starts ago at Doomben. Reus has since franked the form by winning again, including the Grafton Guineas. Green Jacket then somehow found a way to win last start after being held up for a large part of the straight but got up in the shadows of the post.

GOSFORD R2 #3  ABSOLUTE LEGEND $1.62

I think this son of Not a Single Doubt is fairly talented. He has trialled on four occasions and shown something each time. He recently won the trial at Randwick under his own steam on the heavy and looks ready to kick off his career with a win. #2 KUZCO LAD is better than maiden grade in my opinion and can hopefully run 2nd.

GOSFORD R3 #1 ZARZOU $3.15

He was not beaten far at Newcastle when Zakat flashed home down the outside. Zakat franked the form by winning again next start up in grade. He then closed off ok at the next start when running 4th behind Menagerie. He beat home Soul Purpose who has since won a race. Trials this time have been in decent company. Next best #5 MINIFINN has been thereabouts and will win a maiden soon.

GOSFORD R5 #1  CALIFORNIA SKY  $4.80 #8 SKY LAB $4.45

California Sky is going to keep improving up in distance. He battled on well last time when stepping up to the 1400m and only found one better, who swooped late. The 3rd horse has since franked the form by winning.  SKY LAB is in the same boat. Stormed home on debut in a race that the form has been franked on a few occasions now. He then came from a mile back but closed off nicely last start, running the fastest last 400m of the race.

MORPHETTVILLE R3 #6 DEEVINE  $10.20 #8  RENOUF $6.30

I liked the way Deevine attacked the line when running 2nd behind the smart Hypersonic at Murray Bridge. He was then impressive again when winning at Gawler, looking strong through the line when stepping out to the 1200m. Looks progressive. Took a while for the penny to drop but RENOUF has come back better this preparation. She has been behind a few that look handy at her past couple starts and gets a few kg off here.

COONABARABRAN R2 #10 ZARIZ RAIDER $14.80

Trialled well before the debut behind Westlink. Forgive the debut run at Dubbo, he was caught wide and pulled up lame.
