Exec GM of racing & operations, Craig Baker, rates:
Race 8 | HR FISKEN & SONS LTD 1400 | 4:38 pm
On what is a tough punting day, my best is Dubai Diva (#10) in race 8. The daughter of Pride Of Dubai is close to a win after a last start second and, in what is not an overly strong race, looks well placed to break through.
Sponsorship manager, Bill Heap rates:
Gates open: 11:15am
First race: 12:15pm
Last race: 4:38pm
