4.00 p.m. R1 11 Sportscaster (7 g Fastnet Rock - Gypsy Dancer) - Jerlyn Seow (a4); drew barrier 11 of 12 in the $30,000 Class 5 1100 metres on poly-track and carries 52kg. He requires more distance to make an impact.

4.30 p.m. R2 1 King Arthur  (3 g I Am Invincible - Pentasia) - Harry Kasim; drew outside barrier (13) in the $75,000 Restricted Maiden 1200 metres on turf and carries 57kg. In good form, he will go back and be ridden for luck from bad draw (13) - the first of a Mark Walker trio in this event.

4.30 p.m. R2 2 Reignite  (3 g Sebring - Risk Aversion) - Vlad Duric; drew barrier 9 of 13 in the $75,000 Restricted Maiden 1200 metres on turf and carries 57kg. The second runner for the stable, he had no luck last time from wide draw (10) and needs right trip from barrier nine to rate a top four chance.

4.30 p.m. R2 7 Our Final Offer (3 g Deep Field - Egyptian Melody) - Louis Beuzelin; drew barrier 8 of 13 in the $75,000 Restricted Maiden 1200 metres on turf and carries 57kg. The third of the trainer's runners in this race, he is another who didn't have the rub of the green first up and he can improve.

5.00 p.m. R3 1 Sacred Gift  (5 g Zoustar - Calcatta) - Jerlyn Seow (a4); drew barrier 2 of 11 in the $50,000 Class 4 1100 metres on poly-track and carries 55kg. He rates a top four prospect from the handy two barrier.

5.30 p.m. R4 9 Accumulation  (6 g Rip Van Winkle - Vega Sicila) - CC Wong; drew barrier 8 of 14 in the $30,000 Class 5 1400 metres on turf and carries 51.5kg. While he is better over more distance, but still can deliver a dividend.

6.30 p.m. R6 5 Red Riding Wood  (7 g Redwood - Dreamcatcher) - Harry Kasim; drew barrier 11 of 14 in the $30,000 Class 5 1800 metres on turf and carries 55kg. He has a tricky draw (11) to navigate but nonetheless, he is up to a first four finish.

8.00 p.m. R9 2 Red Rover (6 g O'Reilly - Pin Up) - Vlad Duric; drew barrier 10 of 12 in the $50,000 Class 4 1200 metres on poly-track and carries 58kg. He was a big improver last start for third and looks a first four proposition with the champion rider engaged.

8.00 p.m. R9 5 What You Like (7 g Savabeel - Kinsella) - Jerlyn Seow (a4); drew barrier 1 of 12 in the $50,000 Class 4 1200 metres on poly-track and carries 51.5kg. Drawn to be dangerous (1), he carries a lightweight and has first four claims.

8.00 p.m. R9 13 Inherit  (5 g Pierro - In the Future) - unfixed; drew barrier 11 of 12 in the $50,000 Class 4 1200 metres on poly-track and carries 55.5kg. Currently sitting one on the ballot, a start looks unlikely.

9.00 p.m. R11 10 Buddy Buddy (6 g Dubawi - Born Something) - CC Wong; drew barrier 4 of 10 in the $70,000 Class 3 1800 metres on turf and carries 50.5kg.He faces a tougher field here but is down in weights however, he needs rain to show his best.

9.30 p.m. R12 1 Mystery Power  (4 g No Nay Never - Gems) - Vlad Duric; drew barrier 8 of 12 in the $50,000 Class 4 1200 metres on poly-track and carries 58.5kg. He never handled wet track last time, and having his first start on poly, he has top four prospects - one of three in the race for Mark Walker.

9.30 p.m. R12 2 Just Landed (5 g Jimmy Choux - Lionstar) - Jerlyn Seow (a4); drew barrier 3 of 12 in the $50,000 Class 4 1200 metres on poly-track and carries 53.5kg. In good form, look for him to be finishing strongly with the advantage of the handy draw and apprentice claim.

9.30 p.m. R12 5 Exdream  (5 g Dream Ahead - Sboog) - CC Wong; drew barrier 5 of 12 in the $50,000 Class 4 1200 metres on poly-track and carries 54kg. Back on the poly, he has been working well enough to feature in the first four.
