Main Danger
1 Maybeashowoff   F: 7457X
  B(2) W(57.5)

Has race day experience which is a positive. Looked good at the recent trials and it gets a 2kg claim to help with the weight. Nice chance.

3 Diva Express   F: X2516
  B(5) W(55.5)
 ( J-  Sam Spratt )
Scored a win two back and it wasn't too far behind last time out. Rarely too far away from them and deserves to be included at the price.

Top Pick
6 Lily d'Or   F:
  B(11) W(56.5)
Trial winner which could make a winning debut. Not the hardest field of all time and late betting movement will be a good guide.
Main Danger
3 Massachusetts   F: 42X28
  B(7) W(56.5)
 ( J-  Andrew Calder )
Won
Dividends : $2.20 $1.20
Very disappointing last time out but it's better than that and it was a funny-run race. Should bring that experience here and rebound nicely.
Next Best
11 Quintuple Twins   F: 776X6
  B(8) W(56.5)
 ( J-  Sam Spratt )
Gets the benefit of the home track and that could help turn the form around. Has attracted attention in the betting.
Include in Multis
4 Kayture   F: 45X
  B(3) W(56.5)

Top Pick
3 Star Treasure   F: 20312
  B(3) W(56.5)
 ( J-  Sam Spratt )
Has been performing well against some nice types. Good winner two back and wasn't all that far away when second last start. Big chance.
Main Danger
7 Von Trapp   F: X2621
  B(2) W(54)
 ( J-  Andrew Calder )
Placed
Dividend : $1.60
Built up to the win last start and it could kick on with it now. Harder here but having 54kg on the back helps and it has upside.
Next Best
5 Memories Only   F: 42714
  B(6) W(55)
 ( T-  Linda Laing )
Runs well at this track with six starts for a win and two placings. Doesn't win often but it could get some of this.
Include in Multis
4 Time To Fly   F: X5271
  B(4) W(55.5)
 ( J-  Trudy Thornton )
 ( T-  Alan Tait )
Comes into this with a last-start win and it will get a good, strong ride from Thornton. Right in this with a good trip in transit.

Top Pick
6 Amazing Az   F: 140X3
  B(3) W(54)
 ( J-  Craig Grylls )
Placed
Dividend : $1.80
Might have needed the run last time out. Form prior was good enough to win this and with 54kg on its back, it looks a strong winning chance.
Main Danger
2 Go Nicholas   F: 00063
  B(5) W(59)
 ( J-  Taiki Yanagida )
Returned to form when running third last start. That ended a long run of poor runs and it could continue to improve. Chance.
Next Best
4 Light Shadow   F: 04341
  B(2) W(56)
Won
Dividends : $4.00 $2.50
Was running consistent races before winning last start. Not easy here but it could add some value at each-way odds.
Include in Multis
5 Crafty Jess   F: 51278
  B(6) W(55)
Last couple have been below par but the ability is there. Stick with it as it has enough ability to win. Small field should help as well.
Longer Odds
1 Irish Call   F: 028X0
  B(4) W(59.5)
 ( J-  Trudy Thornton )
Upsets typically happen in small fields. Worth including because of that.

Remarks

Top Pick
5 One Kotukustreet   F: 169X2
  B(10) W(57.5)
Almost got the job done last start and it should build nicely from that. Money has been there throughout the week so put on top.
Main Danger
6 Viola Vega   F: 836X1
  B(3) W(57)
 ( J-  Rowena Smyth )
Placed
Dividend : $2.10
Scored by 3.5 lengths last start and that should be a good form guide for this. Another runner which has been specked during the week.
Next Best
13 Cavalini   F: X76X3
  B(2) W(55.5)
 ( J-  Leith Innes )
Much better effort for third last time out. Battling runs prior to that but it might have turned the corner and be in the finish.
Include in Multis
9 Lowprofile   F: 17X28
  B(15) W(56.5)
 ( J-  Taiki Yanagida )
Needs to rebound after last start and get some luck from the draw. Form prior included a win so include here based on that.
Longer Odds
14 Raspberry Sweet   F: 258X0

Expecting quick improvement now.

5 Redcayenne   F: X1143
  B(9) W(54.5)
 ( J-  Craig Grylls )

Battled away nicely last start and that form bodes well for this. Scored consecutive wins earlier this season so put on top.
Main Danger
6 Poker Face   F: 64551
  B(1) W(54)
 ( J-  Trudy Thornton )
Won
Dividends : $4.00 $1.60
Doesn't always put two runs together but it has been hitting the line nicely. Gets in light at 54kg and the inside draw is ideal.
Next Best
3 He's Cavalier   F: 80332
  B(5) W(58)
 ( J-  Rebecca Scott )
Nearing a win after three consecutive placings. Has been hammered in the betting and punters should take note. Good hope.

Much-improved effort for second last start. Has always been a confidence runner and that could spur it on.

Classy type which is coming off a gritty second placing. More than capable of winning this and it gets a dream run off the inside.
Next Best

  B(6) W(56.5)
Back-to-back winner earlier this campaign. Looks to get a good run from the draw and the home track advantage should help.
