4 Cha Siu Bao   F: 33536
  B(1) W(57)
Placed
Dividend : $2.20
Has always possessed more ability than it shows. Just needs the right in transit to show its best. That could happen here from the inside barrier.

  B(4) W(57)
Won
Dividends : $4.70 $1.90
Got the job done nicely last time out and the jockey is riding some winners of late. Has been well backed and looms as a chance.
Next Best

10 Mark Two   F: 09X88
  B(10) W(54)
 ( J-  Craig Grylls )

Just off the mark but it could add some value in this.

  B(3) W(59)

Main Danger
9 Jennifer Eccles   F: 3

Next Best
3 Long Jack   F: 2

11 Wild Seas   F: 32101
  B(2) W(56.5)

Two wins from its last three starts and drawing well should help. Can throw in the odd bad run but it looks tough to beat here.
Main Danger
