MAXILDO is a well bred son of Fiorente out of Extra Virgin on debut for the Jon O’Connor stable and won a recent Gawler trial impressively by 3.1 lengths. Michael Hickmott has a pair of debutantes.

RACE 2 - 12:12PM Sportsbet Fast Form Handicap (1550 METRES)

ALPINE FLYER is a good mare who was impressive winning the Queen Of The Hills at Oakbank first-up from a spell before she did a good job up on speed when 5th behind Chicago Storm in the City Of Adelaide last time. She gets in nicely with the claim and that is very good form lines for this. WORSFOLD is a former local who is more than capable in a race like this. He made some ground behind Jabbawockeez at Warrnambool last time and can run well here. TEST THE LAW is an improver here. He was 3rd behind Second To Nun in the Strathalbyn Cup before a freshen up and then was beaten 7.8 lengths behind Sweetened last time. The jump from 1250m to 1550m suits. JENKINS has a good record here and was 2nd behind Typhoon Harmony on the outer track last time. TEXAN WINDSTORM was a winner here two starts back beating Imbibe before he was beaten 2.7 lengths behind Jazz Affair here. ROSE OF DUPORTH was well beaten at her local debut behind Aviatress but has won a Gawler trial since.

RACE 3 - 12:47PM The Fotobase Group Handicap (1400 METRES)

MY KHALIFA has won six of 12 here and looks ready to win a race again. He was OK beaten 2.12 lengths behind Edison at Caulfield before he was beaten 8.5 lengths behind En Francais in the G3 Cummings last time. He draws out, but gets some weight relief and should go well. EASY CAMPESE is another who is bursting to win a race having been placed at his past four, the latest behind EAST INDIAMAN, who gets in well with the light weight from a wide draw, here last time. He draws a good barrier. WINDSTORM has very good form for a race like this beaten 3.3 lengths behind Makram at Flemington before he was beaten 7.55 lengths behind Von Hauke in the G3 Shaftsbury Avenue last time. He draws a nice gate and can run well even with the massive weight. Stablemate

POLAND is another who is right up to winning this. He was 4th beaten 5,75 lengths behind Sghirripa in the G3 Standish back in January and comes off a 7.6 length 11th behind Maharba in the Listed Hareeba at Mornington. He gets the blinkers back on here. LAST GIRL LOVE has been in the money at two of her three runs here and has trialled up well for her return.

PLAY: Something on MY KHALIFA each-way.

KINETIC JEWEL is a smart filly who has won two of her five starts and defeated Walk Like An Angel two runs back before chasing that horse home in the Rebel Raider Final when beaten 4.7 lengths as a $3.70 favourite before a break. The early price has been snapped up but she looks perfectly placed. ESSEFFNINETY has a handy record and hasn’t raced since beaten 3.3 lengths in 6th behind Junqueira on the Gold Coast back in January. Her fresh record is very good. STORYTELLER was $4.20-$3.30 favourite when 4th behind Losesomewinmore on the Parks before he was beaten 2.2 lengths behind Classy Kenny last time out. He gets some weight relief.

RACE 5 - 1:57PM Sportsbet Nobody Does It Easier Handicap (1950 METRES)

SIR KINGSFORD is flying and comes off another dominant front running win on the outer track over Enciphering over the 1800m. He’s also accepted in Melbourne but will give them something to chase if he runs here and was $5.50-$3.70 in early betting. AMMOR AMOR had no luck when beaten 5.3 lengths behind Sir Kingsford two starts back before he was well backed last time and beaten 2.4 lengths behind Sir Kingsford again last time. He’ll appreciate getting up in trip, went up big odds ($17-$7) and is sure to run well. THE NEPHEW had some backing at odds when beaten 10 lengths behind See What I See at Mornington last time, he draws a sticky gate but looks an improver in a race like this. LAKE’S FOLLY ran well beaten 1.4 lengths in 4th behind Hoops on the Parks two starts back before he was beaten 7.7 lengths behind The Map in the G3 Queen Elizabeth Cup last time. He draws out but looks well placed. Stablemate EXALTED FIRE was OK when beaten 1.6 lengths in the Hoops on the Parks. DISAGREEABLE MISS was a winner here three starts back beating Crimson Vine and her latest was OK beaten 7.7 lengths in 5th behind The Map in the QE II Cup.

SELECTIONS: 1 SIR KINGSFORD, 7 Ammo Amor, 4 The Nephew, 5 Lake’s Folly

PLAY: Backing SIR KINGSFORD again.

RACE 6 - 2:32PM Triple M Handicap (1250 METRES)

EPISODIC has found form winning her maiden at Oakbank before she was impressive here scoring a 2 length win over The Stalker. She draws out but a repeat effort would go a long way to winning again and was nominated in Melbourne but stays here. EXALTED DAME can run well here, she was 2nd behind Grinzinger Prince five runs back before winning at Murray Bridge. She gets some weight relief from a good gate and can improve on her latest beaten 7.7 lengths behind Delightful Shecky and has been specked since markets went up ($11-$6.50). WILLYBEAFACTOR has been freshened and his form was solid beforehand winning here three starts back. EL CAPONY is on debut for the Bain/Taylor stable and was a Mornington winner in October and was beaten 3.15 length 4th behind Simply Sparklez at Moonee Valley in December. He’s trialled OK. FOURTH POWER has won three win succession and draws a good gate with the claim.

LONRODEX was beaten a half-length by Celsius Star in the Listed Hills Railway at Oakbank before he was 6.9 lengths behind subsequent G1 Goodwood winner Benedetta in the G3 Irwin last time. He draws a good gate and looks great each-way value. Richard and Chantelle Jolly have two leading hopes here and the early money has been for KLABEL who resumes and is a winner first-up. He has won three of 11, never been out of the top two in three runs on the Parks and was $3.70 to $3.10 early. Stablemate KEEP READING has been placed at three of four first-up runs and chased home subsequent G1 winner Queman at both runs before a spell. He has the two trials under his belt and looks suited her with the claim. MAGIC MAX was a good winner here two runs back before running 12th beaten 5.2 lengths behind Extremely Lucky in the G3 Hawkes Stakes which is good form for this. WONDERWOMEN was a winner here in December, beating Klabel, and trialled OK behind Master Eight at Gawler for his return. Stablemate METRO LEGEND was good in the Railway at Oakbank and then beaten 5.9 lengths at Bendigo. He has won a Gawler trial since and can run well. LUNAR HERO can make the speed from a good barrier.

SELECTIONS: 4 LONRODEX, 9 Klabel, 3 Magic Max, 1 Keep Reading

PLAY: Keen on LONRODEX each-way.

RACE 8 - 3:52PM Thomas Farms Handicap (1300 METRES)

MERCHANT BOSS looks a big improver here second-up. He led when beaten a half-length behind King Moya at Murray Bridge and has been in the money at five of seven starts here in the Parks, he can be on speed and give them something to chase. SUPER ALANA was a Balaklava winner three runs back and comes out of the G2 Queen Of The South when beaten 10 lengths behind Seonee, this is a big drop in class and she’s been specked at a price. FAVOURITE CHILD was OK first-up in SA when beaten 2.1 lengths behind The Cassini at Murray Bridge and has trialled well since. HOT OFF has a handy record and was a 5.3 length Balaklava winner two starts back before he looked the winner before getting over run late when beaten 1.1 lengths in 6th behind The Cassini at Murray Bridge. He draws out but looks should be in the mix here. MY MALOO is fitter for one run back when he made ground behind Classy Kenny. TRANTORO was a Gawler winner before being sent out favourite behind Episodic here last time. Stablemate SET ON YOU has ability and was a Gawler winner in November.

STRANGELESS has been around the mark in Victoria and was beaten 1.45 lengths in 5th at Benalla last time.

SELECTIONS: 3 MERCHANT BOSS, 12 Super Alana, 11 Favourite Child, 8 Hot Off

PLAY: Backing MERCHANT BOSS each-way.

RACE 9 - 4:30PM Sportsbet Same Race Multi Handicap (1550 METRES)

MARACOURT is proving a touch costly for supporters but finds a suitable race here back in class on last time, he has plenty of weight but was again doing his best work late behind East Indiaman and has been placed at four of six runs here on the Parks. TIPPA looked good winning from off the speed at Mildura two runs back and then far from disgraced up in class in the Adelaide Guineas when beaten 7.5 lengths behind Poifect. He looks the danger. ALFANO is a former NSW galloper with the Bain and Taylor stable and was OK first-up when narrowly beaten by The Cassini at Murray Bridge. ICHIBANSAN was good first-up when 2nd behind Ballon D’Or back in March and then well beaten behind Sweetened last time. He’s been freshened and has trialled OK since. Stablemate SUPERIOR SAM is capable of improving in a race like this. I’M KENNY comes off a Gawler win beating A Touch Frosty who was a good winner on Wednesday at Murray Bridge.

SELECTIONS: 1 MARACOURT, 8 Tippa, 4 Alfano, 3 Ichibansan
