BM 85 Handicap (BR5) – Keep It Moist won over this course and distance last Saturday and looks well placed to salute again off the quick back-up. He goes up in the weights for that success but has a great record here and is well drawn. Dansal has been racing consistently well during this campaign and is fairly treated at the weights after the 3kg claim for Alisha Taylor. De Dozen Stars and Usain Prince both won last time out and warrant respect.
Selections: Keep It Moist, Dansal, Usain Prince, De Dozen Stars 

F & M NMW Handicap (BR6) – Britaila Kate carried a big weight to victory here last time out and is the one to beat again having drawn perfectly in barrier one. Although this is a step up in class, she is in form and looks fairly treated at the weights relative to some of her rivals. Gotta Be Lucky was a dominant winner over this trip last month and looks well placed in this grade, while Flying Fuji and Style Music are interesting a big odds. La Tikka Rosa is having her first start in Queensland and will go very close if she can bring her Melbourne form up north.
Selections: Britaila Kate, La Tikka Rosa, Flying Fuji, Gotta Be Lucky 

Open Handicap (BR7) – Kelso Wood had a phenomenal strike rate during the 2012/13 racing season and has a strong chance to get a winner at the first metropolitan meeting of the new campaign with Benny’s Buttons. Although this contest is tougher than the one he was successful in last time out, the authority of that victory suggests he will go close again here. Essington has been racing well up north and will appreciate a big drop in weight, while Gundy Son and old stager Ollie Vollie will be charging home at the finish.
Selections: Benny’s Buttons, Essington, Gundy Son, Ollie Vollie 

C, G & E NMW Handicap (BR8) – Covert Charmour has won five of his past six races in Central Queensland but faces a real acid test at his first start in a metropolitan race. If he can reproduce the sort of run that saw him win his past two starts by a combined margin of six and a half lengths he would be the one to beat, even though he has to overcome the obstacle of being drawn in barrier 18. Bribie is another horse drawn wide who has good enough form for a race of this standard. He was narrowly beaten by Alcancia over this trip two starts back and will be motoring home at the death. Confident Star and Last Lap has claims in a tricky event to finish the program.
Selections: Covert Charmour, Confident Star, Bribie, Last Lap
