    Top Pick
    1 Shezathinka   F: X2628
      B(2) W(59)
    Won
    Dividends : $2.40 $1.30
    Didn't fire last start but that came against a decent field. Facing a smaller field should help and its best would be good enough to win.
    Main Danger
    2 Elate   F: 0X756
      B(5) W(58.5)
    Placed
    Dividend : $1.80
    Owns stakes-winning form and it only needs a boost in confidence. Looks the biggest danger to the favourite.
    Next Best
    3 Capellani   F: 47119
      B(3) W(58.5)
     ( J-  Ryan Elliot )
    Bubble burst last start but it looked good prior to that. Can't be ruled out on one bad run, so include in win selections.
    Longer Odds
    5 Hattie Bee   F: 41769
      B(4) W(56.5)
     ( J-  Cameron Lammas )
    Owns the talent and could upset them at odds.

    Remarks

    Small field with the money coming for the first two runners

    Shezathinka has the potential

     ( J-  Lisa Allpress )
    Won
    Dividends : $1.30 $1.00
    Ran back-to-back second placings before running last in the Guineas. It's a fair drop in class and it could break maidens. Runs at very short odds.

      B(5) W(57)
    Placed
    Dividend : $1.40

      B(7) W(57.5)
     ( T-  Danica Guy )

    Has race day experience and that should hold it in good stead. Could turn its form around and figure in the finish.

    5 Skori   F:
      B(9) W(57.5)
    Gets an apprentice claim and that helps.

      B(6) W(58)
     ( J-  Shaun McKay )
     ( T-  Peter McKay )
    Needs to bounce back after a disappointing run last start. However, its form prior was good and that bodes well for this.
    Main Danger
    1 Claiborne   F: 430X
      B(3) W(58.5)
    Won
    Dividends : $4.40 $2.40
    Another that needs to forget its most recent effort. Its third placing second-up was solid and it gets a good run from the draw.
    Next Best
    7 Manhattan Girl   F: 03X5
      B(7) W(56)
     ( J-  Lisa Allpress )
     ( T-  John Bary )
    Made good ground late last start and it should be well-placed for a good run. Allpress rides and she's in good form this season.
    Include in Multis
      B(5) W(58)
     ( J-  Craig Grylls )
     ( T-  Tony Pike )
    Scored a trial win nine months ago. Has been patiently handled and that could pay off. Upset chance.

     ( J-  Ryan Elliot )
    Won
    Dividends : $1.70 $1.30
    Back-to-back second placings to open its career. Drawn a touch wide but it's in the right hands and the money is on.
    Main Danger
    4 Starring Role   F: 27636
      B(6) W(57)
     ( T-  Glenn Old )
    Placed
    Dividend : $1.30
    Has had many chances to break through and hasn't taken them, However, it meets an even field and it could capitalise.
    Next Best
    7 Arabia   F: 79X6
      B(2) W(57)
    Not too bad when sixth last time out. Better for the fresh up run and it has been specked at odds.
    Include in Multis
    5 Amazing Maria   F: 4
      B(1) W(57)
     ( J-  Craig Grylls )
    Did enough on debut and it gets the inside draw to its advantage. Paying nice odds and it shouldn't be too far away from them.
    Longer Odds
      B(11) W(57)
     ( T-  Cody Cole )
    Watch late betting moves. It could be one to watch.

    6 Mannie's Power   F: 72633
      B(5) W(56.5)
     ( J-  Trudy Thornton )
    Could cap off some consistent form with a win. It gets a good, strong rider in the saddle and it should see it fighting out the finish at odds.
    Main Danger
    5 Baby Face   F: 351X5
      B(9) W(56.5)
    Placed
    Dividend : $1.60

      B(8) W(55.5)

      B(1) W(58)
     ( T-  Cody Cole )

     ( T-  Glenn Old )
    Won
    Dividends : $2.50 $1.00
    Needs to lift a touch but it's dropping back from a tough race last start. Has been confidently backed and we're not surprised.

      B(6) W(56.5)
    Placed
