Jockeys will be mounting in the Birdcage so the Owners Drink vouchers will be redeemable in the Flemington Lounge, or Fosters Lounge (if you're a WRC Member.) The parade ring bar will be closed.


TRACK

Rain earlier in the week was ideal. The drying, windy weather that is forecast to continue will see the track come back to a Dead4/Dead5 for racing Friday.

FEATURE RACE PREVIEW

Race 8 Valachi Downs Mile

Sherrif (5) was very good at Hastings when running home strongly late in a similar race. Dropping to 54.5kg here looks ideal and he is clearly the one to beat. Tiptronic (1) is a Group One winner on the course and is fitter for recent racing. The 63kg he is being asked to carry is the concern. Fiscal Fantasy (2) is a genuine Group performing mare who will be better for her run resuming over 1600m at Ellerslie.
