Read the reasons for our selections below:
Ipswich - Race 4 No. 9 Red Bloom
Back to Ipswich, her favourite track where she is unbeaten in four goes, I am shocked that this mare has not opened up as favourite.
Red Bloom loves the 1350m journey and has shown that she can put in a flat one on other circuits yet turn her form right around when at this track.
She was a three length winner here two back and off that performance, she is going to be very hard to beat here.
Rosehill - Race 5 No. 1 Nikohli Beagle
Moved to trainer Jarrod Austin ahead of his second racing preparation, NIKOHLI BEAGLE created an immediate impression for the new yard, recording a winning hat-trick late in 2020. Following an impressive trial, he landed good bets for us fresh and there's improvement to come. Tactically versatile and with Nash Rawiller sticking, the price is fair for what looks a glorified midweek race.
Rosehill - Race 6 No. 12 Tycoonist
On the seven-day turnaround, TYCOONIST was very unlucky on June 5. Settling towards the rear after jumping from a wide alley, the luck simply never came in the run home, with the son of Zoustar flashing home when out at the 100m. With three runs under the belt and down in the weights from a low draw, this is about D-Day with James McDonald now taking the reins.
Ipswich - Race 6 No. 3 Desert Lord
This galloper can produce a barnstorming finish on his day and although his fresh form does not look the best, his first-up win last time in was breathtaking.
He is going to be giving them a start, but I feel that Desert Lord is the most talented horse in the race and although is well exposed, you cannot help but think he could pinch a nice race one day.
Watch down the outside as if he is within six lengths of them on the bend, I do not think they will be beating him.
