Warwick Farm Race 2 Tip #6 Nakeeta Jane $5.50
Loved the run first-up when she was last on the turn, but reeled them in down the straight to just miss.
She will have taken plenty from that effort and I think she can improve here.
Very keen to see if she can go one better.
Warwick Farm Race 7 Tip #3 Chabreet $3.30
Outstanding win first-up and looks to get a similar passage here in transit.
The team Snowden trained colt bumped into a couple of sharp ones in his first prep, but i’m betting he’s come back a better horse this time in.
He just needs to reproduce his efforts from Newcastle to go very close here.

Warwick Farm Race 1 Tip #2 Fortification $4.00
This colt from the Gwenda Markwell yard fought on well to run fourth on debut.
Caught three-wide on-pace, the son of Redoute's Choice would have been forgiven for finishing near last, however he showed plenty of fight to finish only 4.2 lengths off the winner.
Markwell then sent him straight to the paddock for a spell.
He has since had one Warwick Farm trial in preparation for this run.
The booking of gun jockey James McDonald is a key indication that this horse is flying.
Drawn perfectly in barrier one, expect McDonald to hold the fence and make every post a winner.
Cranbourne Race 7 Tip #4 I Did it Again $2.25
This gelding by Nicconi impressed in his trial, matching it with Written Choice at Cranbourne.
He subsequently went to Geelong and ran fourth but looked to lack fitness first-up.
There looked to be plenty of improvement in his condition off his first-up run and given the solid support in early markets, it's likely he'll improve significantly.
Drawn perfectly in barrier two, look for jockey Dwayne Dunn to ride positively with I Did it Again proving too strong for his rivals.

Track comment: Warwick Farm is rated a Good 4 with the rail in the true position the entire circuit.
With warm weather predicted, expect the track to be bone dry and leaders to prove hard to catch.
Warwick Farm Race 3 Tip #12 Voila $4.00
This filly by Choisir did all but win first-up over the 1150m at Randwick-Kensington.
The Chris Waller stable have teamed up with Hugh Bowman on this occasion and from the perfect draw, you'd expect Bowman to jump to the fence and lead.
Dropping back to the 1100m is a plus based on her last performance and given the likelihood of a leader bias, this filly should get all the favours.
Warwick Farm Race 5 Tip #2 Ridicule $4.00
This mare by So You Think ran on well to finish third to Smart Melody at her last start.
Smart Melody franked that form last Saturday with a Listed race win down the Flemington straight.
Ridicule ran on well when first-up behind Smart Meldoy and looked like she would take huge improvement from the run.
Now stripping fitter and with a good record second-up and over the 1200m, this girl from the Brad Widdup yard should be ready to show her best and could well blow these away.
With apprentice Sam Weatherly claiming 2kg, expect a positive ride from barrier three with the mare proving too strong for her rivals.
