Selections based on a soft track.
Race 1 – 1:10PM ANDERSENS FLOORING SHOWCASE 3YO MAIDEN PLATE (1200 METRES)
7. Villasaurus is on debut for the strong stable of Albury trainer Donna Scott, and the gelding has had two trials on soft surfaces at Corowa, winning each of them.

Dangers: 1. Dynamic One is coming off a last-start fifth in city grade and this race looks within his reach. 5. Ruff and 8. Ticklebelly have contested recent trials and performed well enough to be considered place chances here.
How to play it: Villasaurus WIN. Quinella 1,7.
Race 2 – 1:45PM D & S TABER ELECTRICAL SHOWCASE CLASS 1 HANDICAP (1000 METRES)
8. Impatient Miss had done all her racing in Victoria before crossing the border to win here last time out on a heavy track when racing in a prominent position. From a good barrier in this, Impatient Miss can again be on the speed and she should give plenty of cheek.
Dangers: 4. Miller Time can give Donna Scott the first two winners of the day. The mare was a winner at Albury on soft ground at her first start. She has had two runs since resuming and performed well enough in both, again on rain-affected surfaces. She’s drawn well here and has the advantage of the apprentice claim. 7. Insane Volt is back here after being in TAB Highway grade in city company last time out. 1. Black Tahitian can figure in the placings again.
How to play it: Impatient Miss EACH WAY.
Race 3 – 2:20PM RUBY TUESDAY COUNTRY BOOSTED SHOWCASE 4YO & UP MAIDEN PLATE (1200 METRES)
1. Bulleyes is a lightly raced gelding resuming from a spell here having been fitted with two barrier trials. He has been placed in one of his three starts and that was on a rain-affected surface. Expect him to be primed to run well here with Nick Heywood in the saddle.
Dangers: 2. Daicos has been placed in three of his six starts and only needs to run up to his best to be around the mark here again. 3. Inveterate wasn’t beaten far when leading at Forbes last time out and can figure prominently, while 5. Rainmaker is on the improve and shouldn’t be taken lightly.
How to play it: Bulleyes WIN.
Race 4 – 2:55PM LAMBPRO COUNTRY BOOSTED SHOWCASE BENCHMARK 58 HANDICAP (1000 METRES)
2. Spinosaurus was disappointing at Forbes last time out in class two company, but should find this an easier assignment. His two runs before that were sound, and he has proven adept enough on wet ground.
Dangers: 6. Galbalan is resuming from a spell and is capable of racing well fresh, while 3. Backwater Trader has been around the mark since scoring at Albury five starts ago. 1. Platara has sound place claims.
How to play it: Spinosaurus WIN.
Race 5 – 3:35PM WDF ACCOUNTING + ADVISORY SHOWCASE BENCHMARK 66 HANDICAP (1600 METRES)
2. Spitfire started his career in the Gary Portelli stable, where he showed ability. Since moving to the Matthew Dale camp, Spitfire has recorded three wins and a further four minor placings. He hasn’t been disgraced in his latest two city starts, finishing seventh in TAB Highway grade in each of them. This race looks made to order.
Dangers: 1. Sky Diamonds was second-up from a spell when she finished fourth at Kembla Grange last time out. She’s handy on her day and the step up to 1600m should suit. 4. Blessed Award and 6. Nic’s Hero look to be the best of the rest.
How to play it: Spitfire WIN.
Race 6 – 4:10PM JJ’S WASTE & RECYCLING SHOWCASE CLASS 1 & MAIDEN PLATE (1600 METRES)
12. Princess Nefertiti has recorded one win and five placings from just six starts. She has performed well on rain-affected ground and only has to overcome a wide alley in this to be regarded as the one to beat.
Dangers: 2. Oneofthetwelve was just behind the placings at Nowra last Sunday and can get into the placings here with a repeat performance. 9. Twisted Quixote won narrowly here on debut at big odds but shouldn’t be taken lightly, while 6. Spiritly has place prospects.
How to play it: Princess Nefertiti WIN.
Race 7 – 4:45PM UNION CLUB HOTEL SHOWCASE IAN REID SPRINT OPEN HCP (1200 METRES)
1. Magnetic is resuming from a spell here and has had the benefit of a barrier trial. The gelding contested better grade races than this last campaign, including a midfield finish in the Wagga Town Plate. He goes well fresh and handles wet ground.
Dangers: 4. Ten Bells has been contesting city-grade races in each of her three runs since resuming. This looks more to her liking and she can bounce back into form. 9. Brenlyn’s Trooper is a last-start winner at this track and warrants respect, while 5. Neverstandingstill has been racing in city grade in Melbourne.
How to play it: Magnetic EACH WAY.
Race 8 – 5:20PM WAGGA RSL CLUB SHOWCASE CLASS 3 HANDICAP (1200 METRES)
5. Missile Leader looked good when overcoming trouble to win on the Acton track at Canberra last time out. He’s yet to miss a place from four starts and has plenty of upside. He is the best bet of the day.
Dangers: 2. Bellman resumes from a spell here but is a first-up winner and is also a soft track winner. 1. Wild Irish Rover has solid Corowa form either side of a TAB Highway failure at Randwick. 9. I Am Mighty has won her past two starts at Nowra and the Sapphire Coast but place looks best for her in this.
How to play it: Missile Leader WIN.
Race 1: (7) Villasaurus
Race 8: (5) Missile Leader
Race 2: (8) Impatient Miss
