Race-by-race guide and tips for Hawkesbury on Sunday

Race 2 – 12:55PM ADZ TYRE & BATTERY CG& E MAIDEN HANDICAP (1300M)

7. Heads Will Roll kept working to the line on debut to finish seventh but on the heels of AeeceeBeau. There is less depth here and looks suited getting slightly out in trip from 1200m to 1300m. Kathy O’Hara and Gary Portelli are flying as a pair lately.

Dangers: 9. Urban Warrior was scratched from Wyong yesterday for this and although beaten a long way, the winner is no slouch. Might want a drier track, which is the query as hasn’t looked overly comfortable in wet ground.

How to play it: Heads Will Roll win.

Odds & evens: Odds.

Race 3 – 1:30PM SUMMIT LANDSCAPES MAIDEN PLATE (1800M)

6. Zounate ran second at Canterbury last start behind Brutality, which looks a strong reference for this. The son of Zoustar stretches to 1800m for the first time but if he runs the trip out, he only has to hold his form to win this moderate maiden.

Dangers: 9. Jazirat ran fourth as an easing favourite at Gosford last start but was a month between runs and under pressure a long way out. Strips fitter for this and out in trip looks to suit. 8. Hit The High Note is limited but a coming winner too.

How to play it: Zounate win.

Odds & evens: Odds.

Race 4 – 2:05PM PKB AUTOCLAVE SERVICES 2 & 3YO MAIDEN HANDICAP (1000M)

Wouldn’t typically expect to see a daughter of Adelaide show the zip that 5. Barossa Rosa did in a recent Wyong trial but she railed around the 845m in the fastest of the heats. Draws barrier one so expect Grant Buckley to use her natural speed to give a sight on debut.

Dangers: There are chances right down the page here with Brad Widdup’s pair 3. Beachamp and 7.Nags To Riches also trialling well while of the raced horses 2. Tolerate brings the best form.

How to play it: Barossa Rosa win.

Odds & evens: Odds.

Race 5 – 2:40PM JULIE ALLNUTT’S BIRTHDAY BENCHMARK 64 HANDICAP (1000M)

The last time we saw 6. Front Money at the races she was unlucky not to beat Mo’s Crown. That was her second start having won so well on debut. Looks a filly worth following through the grades at this time of year and no surprise Brenton Avdulla sticks having trialled her recently.

Dangers: 2. Little Red Shoes is a track specialist (4:2-0-1) and although she didn’t fire last preparation, her trials suggest that Jason Coyle has her back on track. 5. Can I Rock last two starts have been on speed dominated. She’s ready to win again.

How to play it: Front Money win.

Odds & Evens: Evens.

Race 6 – 3:20PM THE GALSTON CLUB CLASS 1 HANDICAP (1300M)

4. Syncline was expected to be too good for his rivals at Taree first-up when sent around a very skinny quote but it was an annihilation, clocking a three lengths faster time than the Class 1 on the same day. Looks a three-year-old worth sticking with.

Dangers: 2. Elvezio has had a stable change since being deep ended in his first racing preparation running in two Group races after beating Favra at Newcastle. 1. Sam Spade won his maiden in good style last start.

How to play it: Syncline win.

Odds & Evens: Evens.

Race 7 – 3:55PM VARDY THOROUGHBREDS BENCHMARK 64 HANDICAP(1500M)

Like the way 5. Shamamour has hit the line in his last two starts. The first of those was behind Quantico at Newcastle before running fourth here behind Rabbit Clause. Back out to the mile looks perfect fifth-up and there should be enough speed on for him.

Dangers: 7. Timely Shadow broke her maiden last start over this track and trip, holding off Mooy. Her form was rock solid prior to that too, not finishing far away from Blaze A Trail first up.

How to play it: Shamamour win.

Odds & Evens: Odds.

Race 8 – 4:35PM ASCEND SALES TROPHIES CONDITIONAL BENCHMARK70 HANDICAP (1800M)

3. Dame Kiri is in career-best form at the moment. As is her typical style, she came late with a surging finish to just miss at Newcastle last start behind Celtic Love. Was a dominant winner at this track the start prior. On trial at the trip but this race has limited winning chances.

Dangers: The bar plates come off 6. Deepwood Vale, which is always a positive sign. Looked to have his chance at Scone last start but third there. Has since won and his two runs prior to that were rock solid in deeper races.

How to play it: Dame Kiri win.

Odds & evens: Split.
