    2 Son Of Bielski   F: 172
      B(4) W(58.5)
     ( J-  Craig Grylls )
     ( T-  Glenn Old )
    Placed
    Dividend : $1.30
    Nice type in the making that should prove very tough to beat. Bookmakers have opened it at short odds, which isn't unsurprising.
    Main Danger
    5 Ludus   F: 2318X
      B(2) W(56)
    Looked good at times last campaign, including a win two starts back. Didn't handle the rise in class last start but it's better-suited here.
    Next Best
    3 Danger Dee   F: 01675
      B(3) W(58)
     ( J-  Andrew Calder )
     ( T-  Jacob McKay )
    Won
    Dividends : $12.30 $3.70
    Struggling to find its best form of late, but it has the ability. Won four starts back and it should be able to handle this class.
    Include in Multis
    4 Mannie's Power   F: 17263
      B(1) W(56.5)
     ( J-  Trudy Thornton )
    Has won this campaign and hasn't been too far away since. It gets the inside draw and that could be all it needs. Chance.
    Longer Odds
    7 Dawn Jessie   F: 00565
      B(5) W(55)
     ( J-  Shaun McKay )
     ( T-  Peter Lock )
    Needs to improve but it's not without a chance.

     ( J-  Opie Bosson )
    Won
    Dividends : $1.70 $1.10
    Showed good ability when running third last start. In the right hands and seeing Bosson in the saddle is a bonus. Expect money to come for it.
    Main Danger
    9 Hibernia Sea   F: 6933
      B(9) W(56)
     ( J-  Craig Grylls )
    Placed
    Dividend : $1.90
    Owns back-to-back third placings coming into this race. Draws wide in barrier 11 but it only needs luck to figure in the finish.
    Next Best
    13 Greedy   F:
      B(2) W(56)
     ( J-  Ryoya Kozaki )
    Another Te Akau runner that placed in a recent trial. Gets a good run from the draw and weight off its back. Chance on that.
    Include in Multis
    5 The Last Word   F: 5X8X2
      B(3) W(56.5)
    Nothing wrong with its form coming into this. Handy placing last time out and that was a nice turnaround in form. Each-way odds.
    Longer Odds
    2 Sahalainn   F: 20X7
      B(8) W(58.5)
    Ran well on debut, so include for value.

    The 'Best Each Way'
    5 Safe Passage   F:
      B(7) W(55.5)
    Won
    Dividends : $2.50 $1.40
    Looked good winning at the trials and it's bred to show early speed. Tricky draw but if it gets a safe passage throughout, it'll be tough to beat.
    Main Danger
    7 Oneroa   F:
      B(1) W(55.5)
     ( J-  Craig Grylls )
    Handy trial form and it gets the inside draw. Likely to get every chance from that draw and it has been respected in the market.
    Next Best
    2 Bo Jackson   F:
      B(8) W(57.5)
     ( J-  Trudy Thornton )
    Bred to race over longer distances but it looked good at the trials. The market support is there and it should be right around the mark.
    Include in Multis
    6 Victorem   F:
      B(6) W(55.5)
    Placed
    Dividend : $1.90
    Trial winner which is paying nice odds. They usually find form quickly from this stable and we wouldn't be surprised to see it win.
    Longer Odds
    3 Semper Fi   F:
      B(2) W(57.5)
     ( J-  Vinnie Colgan )
     ( T-  Mark Brooks )

    4 Terracotta   F: 2522
      B(9) W(55.5)
    Won
    Dividends : $2.30 $1.20
    Owns race day experience with three second placings from four starts. It's tough to overlook that form and it only needs luck from the draw.
    Main Danger
    3 Super Sid   F: 8X
      B(6) W(57.5)
     ( J-  Opie Bosson )
    Didn't show much on debut but was immediately spelled. From the in-form Te Akau stable and punters are getting nice odds. Worth including.
    Next Best
    9 Mai Tai   F:
      B(2) W(55.5)
     ( J-  Ryoya Kozaki )
    Trial winner by Atlante. Has been confidently backed and it gets in nicely on the weights. Should be included and watch for late betting moves.
    Include in Multis
    5 Fonts de L'Algar   F: 66X2
      B(7) W(55.5)
    Placed
    Dividend : $2.60
    Had very good backing last start when just going under. Better for the run and punters are getting much better odds this time around.
    Longer Odds
    1 I'm Buzz   F: 69622
      B(3) W(57.5)
     ( J-  Shaun McKay )

      B(5) W(58.5)
     ( J-  Opie Bosson )
    Placed
    Dividend : $1.50
    Running well as its form suggests. Impressive win two back before running a competitive second last time out. Opie rides so it goes on top.
    Main Danger
    2 Vichy   F: X6613
      B(7) W(59.5)
    Placed
    Dividend : $1.60

    Next Best
    10 Dam Reliable   F: 44321
      B(1) W(55.5)
     ( J-  Craig Grylls )
    Has scored two wins in a row, but it was relegated two starts back. Loyal punters cashed in last start and they could once again.
    Include in Multis
    1 Master Painton   F: 51774
      B(8) W(60)
     ( J-  Mubs Kareem )
    Never too far away from the prize and it gets 4kg off its back. Only needs to find its best to be competitive in this race.
    Longer Odds
    The 'Best Roughie'
    6 Hasabro   F: 50162

     ( J-  Opie Bosson )
    Won
    Dividends : $1.50 $1.10
    The Richards/Bosson factor could strike in the last. The only negative is the draw, but its two placings bodes well.
    Main Danger
    3 Landry   F: 237
      B(7) W(58)
    Placed
    Dividend : $1.80
    A touch disappointing last start but its two placings prior were good. Worth including and punters are getting nice odds.
    Next Best
      B(5) W(56)
     ( J-  Cameron Lammas )
    Could live up to its name. Did enough at the trials and although it's bred to handle distance races, it could fire up here.

      B(4) W(56)

    Longer Odds
    8 Catwalk Girl   F: 5
      B(1) W(56)
    Did enough on debut and securing the inside draw is a positive.
