Form analyst Matt Jones is confident an unbeaten filly to has more than enough class on her side to win again at Muswellbrook while a wide draw won’t stop Bob Milligan’s gelding from being nice to punters at Grafton.

Race 2, No.3: WINSIDE
She’s a filly who is very promising, having won her opening two runs to kick off her career and she’s well placed at a track she’s already won at.
Race 8, No.7: IAMACRUMPET
She just keeps on coming up and winning, prep after prep. She’s got the right draw to beat a good field of sprinters here and win for the fourth time at her home track.
Race 5: 1, 3, 5, 7
Race 6: 1, 2
Race 7: 1, 3, 5, 6

JOCKEY TO WATCH
Aaron Bullock can have a winning day with the likes of Swift Turtle, Alastor and Fanciful Dream.
Race 7, No.2: BEING NAUGHTY
He has to overcome a wide draw like he did last time when getting a good ride then going on to win with ease. He’s got the scope to go on with it now.
TRAINER TO WATCH
Matthew Dunn is always hard to hold out in this part of the state and Our Flaming Moes, Titration and Coastal Prince are his leading hopes.
THE INSIDE MAIL FOR MUSWELLBROOK
Take To Heart is well placed here and ticks all the boxes heading into the race. She will sit in behind the leaders and look to find a gap and pounce late and she’s a proven second-up performer. Salsa Man has to go up in trip a little but carry 5kg more this time and he’s shown the ability to come from back in the field and win but he’s been doing that with lesser weights so he’ll have his work cut out. Adios Steve is an each-way hope while the blinkers have been put on Mabel Josephine for the first time and if they do the trick and improve her a bit she’s hard to beat at a track she’s won at.
Bet: Mabel Josephine to win
Chaready was given a soft trial ahead of this after a five-week freshen. He ran a very encouraging fourth on debut in March and looks better suited to 1280m now and should get a great run with cover off the fence. Kurlansky will be in front of him on the home turn and he comes back to country grade off a nice second at Newcastle a month ago. Any improvement puts him in the finish. Tupou can travel a bit closer in the run from the gate while first starter Swift Tuttle is a big watch off encouraging trial form.
Bet: Chaready to win

Alastor likes to jump and be on the speed and from barrier eight should be able to sit outside the leader and build off what was a very promising first preparation which included two seconds and a first from three runs. Mr Severino has shown that he can make his own luck by racing positive and it will be interesting to see if he does that from a wide gate under a new stable. He is well placed in this grade. Ficsmm Dave put in a nice lead-up trial off a long break but goes well fresh and will be coming from off the speed to attack late. He’s won a provincial race well already.
Bet: Ficsmm Dave to win
Scott Singleton is confident his horse Remlaps Gem is the best runner in the race even though it’s stacked with some good short-course country sprinters like Iamacrumpet who won at Newcastle last time and loves running at her home track. She ticks all the boxes as she takes on the up-and-comer Remlaps Gem who has already won a Highway race and bolted in a trial ahead of this fresh run. Fanciful Dream is back from a Group 3 race and before that was racing in Sydney Saturday grade for some time so she won’t know what hit her here. A great race.
Bet: Iamacrumpet to win
THE INSIDE MAIL FOR GRAFTON
Hardedge got caught wide here last time before going away for a spell. He’s since won a trial in nice fashion and gets a gate to ensure he doesn’t get that bad luck and we’ll get to see what he’s got. Titration was better second-up on the Gold Coast and if he continues that trend at start three on a firmer track he’s in with a chance. Latin Dayz has placed at his past three runs but even at his unplaced runs he’s not been far off the winner and he’s been less than half a length off the winner at his past three.
Bet: Latin Dayz to win
Tolerate comes back in trip which is probably a good thing and she’s got the early gate speed to cross them from a wide draw. Luck is needed but the consistency is there. Being Naughty also has a wide draw but overcame one last start at Port Macquarie to win in fine fashion, thanks to a good ride, and it was a win that has been coming for some time now so id he takes confidence out of it like most do he can go on with it. Canexcell gets a dry track again which is what he needs and the good gate now means he’ll get an easier run in transit this time.
Bet: Being Naughty to win

September Girl proved last start that she belongs in this grade last start when a close fourth after drawing wide. That’s not the case here and she gets the dream run. Zac Attack didn’t get the luck at the barrier draw and will likely sit off the speed and look for luck to run on and threaten late. He’s won four from 12. Evopex has been kept fresh for this off a four-week break since running third at the track and he’s more than used to this grade. He meets Kievann better at the weights this time after being defeated by him a month ago.
Bet: Quinella 2, 8
Swanston should push forward and sit outside the leader which has helped him maintain consistency of late so he can be relied upon to go close. Coastal Price led all the way to win first-up then flopped in town at Doomben last start but deserves another chance in country grade and third-up. Hurricane Max needs to get off the fence early because he tends to over race if cluttered up on the rail. He’s going along well though. Zavy’s Hope race well here and runs well fresh over a mile.
Bet: Hurricane Max each way
