 ( J-  Craig Grylls )

 ( J-  Cameron Lammas )
 ( T-  Glenn Old )

  B(6) W(57.5)
 ( J-  Trudy Thornton )
 ( T-  Jim Pender )

Won
Dividends : $5.20 $2.00
Good effort to run second fresh up and we're expecting another tidy effort here. Drawing wide could be ideal at this time of the day.
Main Danger
7 Glorious Ocean   F: 4215
  B(5) W(57)
 ( J-  Lisa Allpress )
Scored a good win two back and wasn't all that far behind last start. Nice start to its career and it should continue here.

Dividend : $1.20
Showed plenty when running second fresh up. Trainer goes well at Rotorua and we're not surprised to see it well-backed to score.
Main Danger
3 Flautino   F: 53
  B(5) W(57.5)
 ( J-  Ryan Elliot )
Has had only two starts which is a negative on a deep track, but they have been nice efforts. Indicated a win isn't far off when third last start.
Next Best
8 Midnite Invasion   F: 7

Placed
Dividend : $3.50
Didn't find clear running room on debut. Went to the line well enough and it should be right around the mark.

5 Our Fine Wine   F: 5X4

Could age well and it has been close in two starts to date. Drawn along the inside so might head forward and move out in the straight.

Only fair its first two starts but improvement is expected. Didn't have much luck last start so stick with it and the odds are appealing.
