Race 4  No. 4  SELFIE TIME  – ($3.20 with Ladbrokes)

The Team Freedman-trained SELFIE TIME has resumed in great touch and looks a super chance here for back-to-back victories today. Last start, the Savabeel mare was second-up when she went one better by taking out 1400m Maiden Plate at Kembla Grange. Leading from barrier to box, she put almost three lengths on them over the line, clocking the fastest final 800m to 200m sectionals in the process, on a Heavy 8 that day. Dylan Gibbons steered the ship and has the job again here. Conditions look ideal and from gate five, she maps to settle on speed again. Winning form is good form. She will take beating here.




Race 7  No. 8 EUPHRATES DREAM  – ($4.40 with bet365)

In great touch since resuming, Warwick Farm galloper EUPHRATES DREAM ticks enough boxes here to suggest she will take beating in this contest. Last start, the Pride Of Dubai mare was third-up when she proved too good for a BM64 Hcp over 1100m at Wyong. Unwanted in the market ($17), she raced wide most of the way but still finished best to get the result. She ran her last 600m, 4.4 lengths quicker than benchmark, the best in this line-up by more than four lengths. The four-year-old also recorded the fastest final 800m to 200m sectionals for the race. Brenton Avdulla has the reins for the first time today and from gate seven, the mare maps to settle near mid-field. With a trouble-free run, she should be there when it counts.



Race 5  No.9  TURNAROUND TIME  – ($5.50 with Palmerbet)

Warwick Farm galloper TURNAROUND TIME is no stranger to Hawkesbury and on current form, looks right in the mix here today. Last start, the Tavistock gelding went one better by proving too good in a BM66 Hcp over 1800m on the Bathurst track. Despite racing wide, he finished best to score, running his last 600m, 3.3 lengths quicker than benchmark, the best in this field. He also posted thew fastest final 800m to 200m sectionals for the race. Reece Jones has finished on the podium twice previously with the five-year-old and has the reins again. The form on the board suggests he is in with a chance of producing his first win at the track today.
