  B(6) W(53)
 ( J-  Kerrin McEvoy )
 ( T-  Paul Messara )
Has looked good filling the first three positions from three starts. Has city-class talent and carrying 53kg should make its job rather easy.
Main Danger

6 Wallander   F: X3141
  B(8) W(57.5)
 ( J-  Glyn Schofield )

2 Evopex   F: 9X311
  B(10) W(59)
 ( T-  Jim Jarvis )
Back-to-back wins at Coffs Harbour coming into this and that form should hold. Has a good place percentage and punters might get a good price.

1 Cisco Bay   F: 11735
  B(1) W(59)
Placed

8 Raqeeq   F: 45214
  B(10) W(56)
 ( J-  Kerrin McEvoy )
 ( T-  Chris Waller )
Wasn't going to be suited by the pace last start and that proved true. Not much changes here but the betting support is a good sign.
Main Danger
CREAM, EMERALD GREEN VEE AND CAP
3 Just Shine   F: 1X512
  B(5) W(59)
Continues to run well and it produced three consecutive wins last campaign. Good run last start and it shouldn't be too far away from the mix.

  B(4) W(60.5)
 ( J-  Tye Angland )

Dividend : $2.20
Defeated a field full of Waller-trained runners last start and it could repeat the dose. Big weight, which makes it harder but don't rule out.

  B(6) W(58)
 ( J-  Jason Collett )

Nice win three back but it is a little one-paced. Went close behind Red Alto last start so consider here.

4 Exoteric   F: 62743

Chris Waller dominates the field with five runners

2 Sharpe Hussler   F: 7X711
  B(6) W(61)

  B(8) W(56)

9 Lightz   F: 538X1

  B(9) W(55)

7 Laburnum   F: 4X232
  B(3) W(55)

  B(8) W(53)
 ( J-  Kerrin McEvoy )
 ( T-  P & P Snowden )
Recent wins haven't been easy but it's up and running this campaign which helps. Might have turned the corner and carrying 53kg brings it right into contention.

 ( J-  Jason Collett )

9 Danawi   F: 2X2
  B(9) W(53)

Has been a punters' nightmare from two runs to date. Second in both but it didn't lose any admirers last start and it could easily take this out.

DARK GREEN, GOLD EPAULETTES
3 Spin   F: 335X1
  B(6) W(58.5)

2 Irukandji   F: 2517X
  B(4) W(58.5)
 ( J-  Tommy Berry )
Scored the big upset two back and that form would see it winning here.

Remarks

Great betting field and one of the more even for the day. This race could be a good spring form guide

Simply wins. The media are trying to suggest that Kementari is a danger but in reality, there are no dangers in a field mostly consisting of stayers resuming.
Main Danger

7 Kementari   F: 130X2
  B(7) W(58.5)
 ( J-  Glyn Schofield )
 ( T-  James Cummings )
Couldn't beat Pierata last start and won't beat Winx, but that was a nice and slightly unlucky run. Better guide for the rest of the spring and it could run second here.
