  B(4) W(55)
 ( J-  Dwayne Dunn )
Won
Dividends : $2.40 $1.30

  B(5) W(55)
 ( J-  Ben Allen (a) )
 ( T-  Darren, Weir )
Placed
Dividend : $1.80
Form is average but its recent runs have come behind the likes of Graff, Sandbar and a number of Group 1 performers. Needs to lift but don't discount.

8 Walk the Talk   F: 7611
  B(3) W(55)

Top Pick
BLACK AND WHITE CHECKS, RED SLEEVES, WHITE CAP
5 Sheezdashing   F: 223X3
  B(7) W(56.5)
Probably not suited by the small field as it likes to get back and rattle home, but that was a stunning turn-of-foot in defeat last start and it has the blinking light on.
Main Danger
PALE GREEN, PURPLE QUARTERS, HOOPED SLEEVES, CHECKED CAP
1 I Am a Star   F: 0X431
  B(3) W(57)
 ( J-  Ben Melham )
 ( T-  Shane, Nichols )
Won
Dividends : $1.60 $1.10
Likely to lead and try dictate play from in front. That suits around this track and it should get the run to suit. Short odds the only negative.
Next Best
MCCAULEY TARTAN, BLACK SLEEVES, EMERALD GREEN CAP, RED POM POM
4 Mrs Gardenia   F: 16X18
  B(1) W(57)
 ( J-  Ben Allen (a) )
 ( T-  Darren, Weir )
Placed
Dividend : $2.50
4.7 lengths behind I Am A Star last start but it has bounce-back capabilities. Should enjoy the inside draw and it could add some value at nice odds.
Include in Multis
GREEN, RED SLEEVES, WHITE ARMBANDS, RED CAP
3 Samovare   F: 20X89
  B(6) W(57)
 ( J-  Damien Oliver )
Hasn't shown up in two runs this time in but it went close last campaign. Needs to find a length but don't discount.
Longer Odds
WHITE, NAVY SEAMS, MULTI BLUE AND GREY CHECKED SLEEVES AND CAP
2 Kenedna   F: 4X0X0
  B(2) W(57)
 ( J-  Damian Lane )
 ( T-  Darren, Weir )
Could surprise with the run under the belt. Has plenty of class.

Remarks

Small field which should make for interesting tactics

  B(5) W(57)
 ( J-  Brad Rawiller )
 ( T-  Jarrod, McLean )
Has enjoyed The Valley its last two starts and there has been a flood of money come for it. Drawn well and it could kick away on the turn once again.
Main Danger

  B(9) W(58.5)
 ( J-  Ben Melham )

Won
Dividends : $4.90 $1.80

Next Best
ROYAL BLUE, WHITE HOOPS, WHITE SLEEVES WITH ROYAL BLUE STARS, RED CAP
1 Harlem   F: 67X00
  B(2) W(59.5)
 ( J-  Michael Walker )

  B(7) W(55.5)
 ( J-  Andrew Mallyon )

9 Dollar Dollar Bill   F: 84111
  B(3) W(54)
 ( J-  Jamie Kah )

2 Amadeus   F: 2240X
  B(5) W(58.5)

  B(6) W(55)
