6 Wolff Boss   F:
  B(8) W(58)

  B(10) W(56)
 ( J-  Michael Walker )
Placed

  B(5) W(55.5)
 ( J-  Linda Meech )
Won
Dividends : $1.40 $1.00
Twice-placed from three starts but they have come against nice fields. Drops nicely in weight to 55.5kg here and should be tough to beat.

7 Super Flare   F: 27024
  B(2) W(58)
 ( J-  Jack Martin )
 ( T-  Pat Carey )

  B(3) W(55.5)
 ( J-  Declan Bates )
Placed
Dividend : $1.40

  B(6) W(57)
 ( J-  Zac Spain )
Placed
Dividend : $1.80

Former Kiwi which has been just behind the pace this preparation. Has ability on its day and the inside draw suits.

Top Pick
3 Danbana   F: 34X16
  B(1) W(60)
 ( J-  Linda Meech )
Placed
Dividend : $1.80
Only fair last start but that might have been second-up syndrome. Better to go on the fresh up win as a form guide.
Main Danger
2 Young Harry Cool   F: 22148
  B(3) W(61)
 ( J-  Jamie Mott )
 ( T-  Colin Scott )
Won
Dividends : $2.80 $1.40
Needs to turn around a fair effort last start but it has the ability. Looked good prior when winning at Echuca and a similar effort takes it close.
Next Best
6 Theodolite   F: 90393
  B(7) W(60)
 ( J-  Jordan Childs )
Yet to win from six starts this time in but it's only a matter of time before it breaks through. Has been holding steady in the betting which is a good sign.
Include in Multis
1 Freedoms   F: 12317
  B(10) W(62.5)
Mixing its form a touch but it has two recent wins to boast. Big weight but deserves it and it won't matter over this distance.
Longer OddsThe 'Best Roughie'
7 Equiamico   F: 23754
  B(12) W(59.5)
 ( J-  Lucinda Doodt )

2 Gone Rogue   F: 31

Nothing wrong with that win last time out and it could rise through the grades now. Drawn well and gets some weight relief.
Main Danger
8 Ocean Essence   F: 39042
  B(11) W(59.5)
 ( J-  Brad Rawiller )
Placed
Dividend : $1.40
Good money coming for the favourite. Much better effort when second last start and it has faced harder fields than this. Looks the challenger.
Next Best
4 Sebeat   F: X0212
  B(10) W(61.5)
 ( J-  Carleen Hefel )
Placed
Dividend : $2.00
Last three starts have been its career best. Includes a win and two second placings. No reason why it won't continue in that vein of form.
Include in Multis
3 Il Divo   F: X5264
  B(4) W(61.5)
 ( J-  Logan McNeil )
Could sing a sweet tune here. All around the mark in four starts this time in and although not always the most consistent, it has win claims.

Placed
Dividend : $2.00
Beaten favourite last start but it wasn't disgraced. Looks better-suited to this and it should settle on the pace and be tough to catch.
Main Danger
9 Manasari   F: 2X181
  B(4) W(59)
 ( J-  Ben Allen )
Comes from the Lindsay Park stables and they're tough to beat. Owns two wins from its last three starts and should be in the thick of it.

Won
Dividends : $6.40 $2.20
