Hollywoodbets-sponsored Trainer Gavin Smith sends out Cruise Control in Race 5 and he is the possible Pick 6 banker.

He showed good speed over 1200m on the turf last time but was caught late. He finished 0.2 lengths behind Evies First that day.

He is 3.5kgs better off at the weights today and that should be enough for the tables to be turned.

The son of Querari is unbeaten from two starts on this course and he should keep that record intact.

Kabon Kapi from the Zietsman Oosthuizen stable represents decent each way value in Race 8.

She is much better than her last start in the Non-Black Type Lady’s Bracelet. It must be noted that multiple horses from that form line have come out and won since.

Her two previous outings on this course were fair. he daughter of Flower Alley won her only attempt over this course and distance.

With the services of 4kgs claiming apprentice Trent Mayhew, she should give the males a run for their money.
