Wentworth Park: Race 1 (7:28pm AEDT)
No. 5 Tamou Banner

Tamou Banner has been flying recently and will seek a third-consecutive win when he steps out in the first at Wentworth Park tonight. The son of Kinloch Brae franked the form that he showed two starts back when he savaged the line in great time at Gosford on Tuesday, and he’ll be suited to the central draw again. This is a step up in class and he’ll need to overcome a few handy dogs, but he does still look the one to beat.

Wentworth Park: Race 6 (9:13pm AEDT)
No. 2 Blue Moon Rising

Blue Moon Rising is a Group 1 winner and looks a nice each-way chance in the sixth at Wentworth Park tonight ($6 at publish). A son of the legendary Fernando Bale, he did miss the jump at Richmond last time out but worked home fairly to finish within five lengths and while this race is short of his best trip, he does have the class edge.

Wentworth Park: Race 8 (9:50pm AEDT)
No. 5 Umatilla

Umatilla will carry winning form into the eighth at Wentworth Park tonight and is over at the odds at his opening price ($10). The three-year-old has continued to improve with racing recently and hit the line well to finish second behind the in-form He’s All Shine two starts back, before scoring by two lengths at this track and distance last time out. If he steps, he’s good enough to be in the finish again.

Wentworth Park: Race 10 (10:35pm AEDT)
No. 1 Chickiano

Chickiano doesn’t win out of turn, but she’s been building towards a big return to the winner’s stall recently and strikes her best chance in some time in the last at Wentworth Park tonight. The two-year-old daughter of Fernando Bale worked home well after jumping from a wide box to finish second at the courser and distance last week. This does look a nice step back in class and she’s recorded the second-fastest time of any dog in the field at the trip.
