     ( J-  Jason Waddell )
    Won
    Dividends : $2.80 $1.10
    Has plenty of talent but didn't let down last time out. Drawn well and its best form would be miles too good for them here.
    Main Danger
    2 Hattie Bee   F: 57762
      B(7) W(56.5)
     ( J-  Cameron Lammas )
    Hasn't won for a while now but returned to form when finishing second last time out. Could go close with a repeat effort.

     ( J-  Shaun McKay )
    Placed
    Dividend : $1.90
    Needs to lift on recent efforts but should get a good chance to improve its form. 54kg on the back helps and it could run close.

     ( J-  Craig Grylls )
     ( T-  Jacob McKay )

      B(2) W(56.5)

      B(1) W(55.5)
     ( J-  Cameron Lammas )
    Won
    Dividends : $2.30 $1.10
    Didn't do much wrong on debut in a strong race. Inside draw is ideal here and it has attracted plenty of attention.
    Main Danger
      B(4) W(55.5)
    Trial winner and it's another runner specked at odds. Drawn to sit just behind the pace and kick strongly in the straight.
    Next Best
    4 Perfectionist   F:
      B(2) W(55.5)
     ( J-  Taiki Yanagida )
    Placed
    Dividend : $2.40
    Didn't show too much at the trials but wasn't asked to do much either. Bred to be good and this stable is firing of late.
    Longer Odds
      B(5) W(57.5)
     ( J-  Opie Bosson )
    Bred to want further but could show some cheek here.

    Remarks

    Only five in the field but the form should stack up nicely

    Top Pick
      B(9) W(57)
     ( J-  Opie Bosson )
    Won
    Dividends : $2.20 $1.10
    Showed plenty of toe at the trials and backing against this stable isn't wise. Just needs some luck from the draw but Opie rides.
    Main Danger
    8 Arya Stark   F: 2
      B(2) W(55)
     ( J-  Michael McNab )
    Placed
    Dividend : $1.80
    Did enough on debut to suggest it could win shortly. That run came on this track and it has been well-backed at each-way odds.
    Next Best
    3 Qiji Spirit   F: 2530X
      B(3) W(57)
     ( J-  Leith Innes )
     ( T-  Nigel Tiley )
    Has shown good speed at times and could run fresh up. Drawn to figure in the finish and it's another runner that has been specked. Right in this.
    Include in Multis
    10 Midnight Magic   F: 8X
      B(1) W(55)
    Placed
    Dividend : $2.10
    Didn't show much on debut but was spelled and should come back a better type. Inside draw and light weight on its back.
    Longer Odds
    5 He's The Man   F:
      B(5) W(57)
    Went well at the trials so consider at the odds.

    8 Combat Queen   F: 551
      B(1) W(57.5)
     ( J-  Opie Bosson )

    Main Danger
    5 Lady Lira   F: 99233
      B(2) W(58)
     ( J-  Craig Grylls )
    Placed
    Dividend : $2.50
    Has had chances to win of late but has been battling on nicely. Another drawn well and punters are getting odds worth taking.
    Next Best
    3 Kainui Rose   F: 94X72
      B(4) W(58.5)
     ( J-  Chelsea Burdan )
    That was a lovely effort last time out. Gets 3kg off its back and a win isn't far away. Has plenty of improvement to come.
    Include in Multis
    1 Simona   F: 41352
      B(5) W(59.5)
     ( J-  Ryan Elliot )

    4 Kylie Bax   F: X1985
      B(7) W(58)
     ( J-  Jason Waddell )
    Looked good winning fresh up but has disappointed since. Big odds on offer so consider.

      B(6) W(58.5)
     ( J-  Darren Danis )
    Placed
    Dividend : $1.60
    Should have broken maiden grades by now. Put the writing on the wall last start and the 2kg coming off its back helps.
    Next Best
    6 Intelligent Patch   F: 73
      B(3) W(57)
     ( J-  Michael McNab )
    Placed
    Dividend : $2.00
    Stable is firing at it could improve on a last start third placing. Opie rides and it should be hitting the line nicely.

    8 If At First   F: 363X4
      B(9) W(56.5)
     ( J-  Cameron Lammas )

    Longer Odds
    9 Gracies Gold   F: 5
      B(10) W(56.5)
    Could add some value at odds.
