    6 Stoical   F:
      B(7) W(58)
     ( J-  Damian Lane )

    Won
    Dividends : $4.90 $1.90

      B(9) W(61)
     ( J-  Damian Lane )

     ( J-  Craig Williams )
    Won

    5 Reflect the Stars   F: 98X21
      B(8) W(59.5)
     ( J-  John Allen )

      B(6) W(60.5)
     ( J-  Ryan Maloney )

     ( J-  Dwayne Dunn )
    Placed

    Next Best
    8 Lianne   F: 42344
      B(2) W(58)
    Has been running in the city and running well. Draws well and if it can repeat that Flemington run, it should go close.

    2 Delusions   F: X1621
      B(3) W(61)
     ( J-  Michael Poy )
