Weather: fine, track: Dead5, rail: true. No rain forecast.

2.53 p.m. R4 1 Beau Geste  (5 g Pour Moi - Villa Wanda) - Chris Johnson; Spelled after winning in July, a capable staying type that has won twice to 2000 metres, he has two trials under his belt and resumes in the $10,000 Rating 65 1400 metres. A three-quarter brother to multiple Group One winning Wall Street (Montjeu), he has the ability to produce a bold first-up effort from barrier one. 

2.53 p.m. R4 8 Spirit of Galway (4 m Rip Van Winkle - Galway) - Ryan Elliot; staged an unbelievable performance to win the Pearl Series Maiden 1400 metres on 1 January at Hastings, and steps up in the Rating 65 1400 metres. She had been consistent recording two seconds, four thirds, and a fourth from eight prior starts, and the type to measure up admirably from barrier two.
