Mccartney from the Tony Rivalland yard should give punters a good start to the day. He ran a good race when third over this distance at Hollywoodbets Scottsville last time.

It must be noted that Kitchakal has come out and finished a close second since. It is encouraging that Keagan de Melo rides on his return after a 12-week break and, in this line-up, he can shed his maiden tag.

After saddling the feature race winner yesterday, trainer Carl Hewitson sends out Lord Minver in Race 3.

He has fair consistent form lines to his credit. He stayed on when fourth over 2000m on this course last time. The son of Duke Of Marmalade has dropped to a competitive rating and from his good draw of four, he can return to winning ways.

Please note that K Sakayi will not be riding today.
