Top Pick
1 Twin Spinner   F: 20624
  B(5) W(58.5)
Won
Dividends : $4.20 $1.70
Hasn't been too far behind them so far and it gets some weight off its back. Should handle conditions and be competitive.
Main Danger
10 Unacceptable   F: X3X02
  B(2) W(56.5)
 ( J-  Craig Grylls )
 ( T-  John Bell )
Placed
Dividend : $1.80
Needed the fresh up run and it was much-improved when running second last start. Drawn well and should be around the mark.
Next Best
3 Hvar   F: X6558
  B(11) W(58.5)
 ( J-  Andrew Calder )
Has had its chances to win but meets a relatively easy field here. Should improve and drawing wide on this track might help somewhat. Chance.
Include in Multis
2 Dr Velocious   F: 69843
  B(3) W(58.5)
Capped off some moderate form with a placing last time out. That could be good enough form for this so consider here at each-way odds.
Longer Odds
11 Gocara   F: X8030
  B(10) W(56.5)
 ( J-  Trudy Thornton )
Mixed form but it has upset claims.

Remarks

Nice field to open up the card

Top Pick
5 Nulli Secundus   F: 05214
  B(5) W(56)
 ( J-  Rebecca Scott )
Won
Dividends : $2.50 $1.70
Couldn't be stopped when winning two starts back. Not a bad fourth last start and with 3kg coming off its back, that helps.
Main Danger
2 Windy Height   F: 0X705
  B(3) W(58.5)
Placed
Dividend : $1.70
Probably needed all three runs back in this campaign. Ready to fire now and it has been well backed in the betting. Nice chance.
Next Best
1 Joe Cargo   F: 00339
  B(4) W(59)
 ( J-  Reese Jones )
Only average last start but form prior when placing was much better. Needs to regain that confidence and it could go close.
Include in Multis
8 Wagner   F: 75X95
  B(7) W(54)
 ( J-  Rowena Smyth )
Should be suited down in the weights. 54kg on the back helps and it should go close with some luck in running. Nice odds.
Longer Odds
7 Raaj   F: 7684B
  B(1) W(54)
Enjoys the conditions and will battle away gamely in the straight.

Remarks

Small field but it should be a good race

Nulli should go close

  B(5) W(57.5)
 ( J-  Andrew Calder )
 ( T-  Steven Reid )
Placed
Dividend : $1.30
Didn't lose any admirers when running second on debut. Looks to have the most talent and should be breaking maiden grades soon.
Main Danger
4 Sir Ralph   F: 09X6
  B(4) W(57.5)
 ( J-  Cameron Lammas )
Form doesn't appeal but it wasn't too far away last start and improvement is to come. Watch for any late betting moves with this runner.
Next Best
2 Fast Mover   F: 67X63
  B(1) W(57.5)
 ( J-  Shaun McKay )
Placed
Dividend : $2.70
Much better effort for third last time out. Gets an inside draw and should be able to sit close to the pace and kick strongly.
Include in Multis
11 Keep It Real   F: 09X06
  B(3) W(55.5)
 ( J-  Tegan Newman )
Not an easy race to kick off with but trial form has been solid. Worth including here at each-way odds.
Longer Odds
12 Mama   F:
  B(8) W(55.5)
Another debutante which could surprise and run a good race.

1 Call Me Bob   F: 20X46
  B(5) W(59)
 ( T-  Nigel Tiley )

Main Danger
4 Vincentius   F: 10X04
  B(12) W(57)
 ( J-  Darren Danis )
Made good ground last start. Was a winner four back so the ability is there and it gets some weight off its back. Goes close.
Next Best
6 Good Vibes   F: 80X61
  B(4) W(54)
 ( J-  Rowena Smyth )
Last-start winner which gets in light and could easily go back-to-back. Could start as favourite and go back-to-back.
Include in Multis
7 Dudewithattitude   F: 56003
  B(1) W(54)
 ( J-  Trudy Thornton )

  B(2) W(56.5)
 ( J-  Darren Danis )

Main Danger
7 Frozen   F: 24
  B(6) W(56.5)
Won
Dividends : $2.60 $1.40
Two close-up runs to date and that form should hold up nicely. Drawn well and we'd be surprised if it wasn't fighting out the finish.

4 Tumbril   F: 35
  B(3) W(58.5)
 ( J-  Craig Grylls )
 ( T-  John Bell )

Include in Multis
10 Damesel   F: 45X35
  B(7) W(56.5)

Resumed with a tidy effort for fourth. Drops down nicely in weight to 55kg and Danielle Johnson returns to ride. Goes close.
Next Best
1 Botti   F: 300X8
