Race 1: Chevalier Aluminum Engineering Handicap

#3 Infinity Win is racing well. Expect he flies the lids and plays catch me if you can in the opener. He's done enough so far to fire himself into contention. #13 Sparkling Dolphin gets Zac Purton for the first time. He won first-up last prep and does appear nailed on to go close once more at his seasonal resumption. #8 Circuit Splendor has trialled trial and looks forward enough to figure on debut. #2 Eight Trigrams has done nothing wrong. Expect he gives it his all in a bid for back-to-back wins.

Race 2: Chevalier Car Dealership Handicap

#6 Super Elegance is better than his record suggests. He can contend in this grade and the inside gate affords him every opportunity to bounce back, especially at a decent price. #10 Darci Joy is after back-to-back wins. He remains in Class 4 which suits. #9 Light Of Wanshi gets the services of Zac Purton for the first time. He's shown his capabilities and the inside draw gives him his chance. #1 Oscar Glory is racing in superb form with a win three starts ago to his name before his narrow defeat last time out. 

Race 3: Chevalier Construction Handicap

#6 This Is Guts caught the eye in a recent trail when leading throughout to cross the line first. Expect he tries the same again from gate one under Blake Shinn. #8 Everyone's Victory is doing everything right except win. He can make his presence felt once again here on his preferred surface. #5 Packing Kingdom has trialled well on the dirt previously. Expect improvement with Zac Purton hopping up. #2 Whizz Kid draws favourably. He can test this lot.

Race 4: Chevalier E & M Engineering Handicap

#5 Little Player is closing on in a first win. He made a stack of ground last time out, enough so to warrant consideration for this contest. #10 Victorious Leader won well first-up and since then has performed with plenty of merit. Zac Purton gets the leg-up and he has plenty of claims here. #4 King's Trooper draws ideally. He hasn't won for a while but he has shown glimpses of returning to that level for some time now. Don't be surprised if he bounces out of the ground. #3 Golden Four is next best. Expect a fast-finish.

Race 5: Chevalier Environmental Engineering Handicap

#3 California Concord rarely runs a bad race. He draws well for this contest and a forward position in the run should ensure he is offered every chance. He has race experience over a number of these. #2 Five Elements looks a very sharp talent for leading trainer Frankie Lor. He's had two runs and in each he has shown that a win is nearing. #5 Solid Impact has some ability. He's progressing well and is open to further improvement. #4 High Rise Soldier can box on for prize money.

Race 6: Chevalier Healthcare Investment Handicap

#9 Happy Daily is in superb form at present. He was a touch unlucky last start and with the right run split at the right time he nearly wins that race. He's worth taking a chance on here. #2 Boom Stitch is a lightly raced talent. It wouldn't surprise to see him go one better here, especially over seven furlongs which he relished last time out. #3 Flying Sword is after back-to-back wins. He's racing well and remains in this grade. #4 Baebae Tsoi finished a close-up third on debut. This looks a bit more difficult though. 

Race 7: The Chevalier Cup Handicap

#6 Excellent Proposal will have taken plenty of benefit from his first-up run. Expect improvement here getting out to a mile too as a two-time course and distance winner. #4 Lucky Express is after back-to-back wins. He's competitive over the mile and the retention of Zac Purton's services bode well. #9 The Rock only needs to offset the wide gate to be a contender here. Expect he does that and settles close to the speed with the hope of expending minimal effort. #1 Buddies is the pacesetter. He'll take catching.

Race 8: Chevalier Lifts & Escalators Handicap

#10 Perfect Maryknoll looks to have his fair share of ability. He was a high-class performer in Australia and the mile looks his go here. Expect improvement off the back of his fast-finishing effort last time out. #9 Xiang Yin is looking for a hat-trick of wins. He's in sublime form and has shown that Class 3 is of no issue to him. #1 Hit The Shot steps out on debut. He'll be on a Four-Year-Old Classic Series trail having placed in the G1 Victoria Derby prior to export. One to follow. #6 Super Ten can bounce back.

Race 9: Chevalier Property Development & Operations Handicap

#7 Northern Dragon showed a stack of potential two starts ago when rattling home for a narrow second over this course and distance. Expect he can bounce back to that level here and he is likely to be very good value to do so. #1 When You Believe has proven his capabilities. He's first-up and the services of Zac Purton command respect. #8 Elon has claims switching back to the dirt, especially with a good gate here. #5 Harmony Spirit is next best.

Race 10: Chevalier Property Investment Handicap

#8 Blaze Warrior can bounce back from his first defeat last time out. He looks to have held his condition well and while difficult this contest is suitable. #1 Master Montaro has his fair share of class. He too can bounce back to form here. #3 My Sugar is looking to rack up his fourth consecutive win. Zac Purton sticks aboard and he looks capable once more, though he has had soundness issues in the past. #6 Ima Single Man sizzled over this course and distance last time out. He has claims if he can offset the wide gate.
