    Top Pick
    3 Kitchener   F:
      B(6) W(55.5)
    Short odds on offer but it's tough to overlook this customer. Three trials for three wins and only bad luck would stop it.
    Main Danger
    6 Awareness   F:

     ( J-  Chelsea Burdan )
    Won
    Dividends : $4.70 $1.60
    Gets in nicely on the weights at 52.5kg with the 3kg claim. Nicely bred and showed enough at the trials to win.
    Next Best
    4 O'Jessica   F: 7
      B(4) W(55.5)
     ( J-  Sam Spratt )
    Has race day experience which is positive. There's plenty of improvement to come and we're expecting a better result.

      B(1) W(55.5)
    Placed
    Dividend : $4.30
    Has two starts where it didn't show much, but there is support in the betting. Inside draw helps and it gets a 1kg claimer.
    Longer Odds
    1 Jaydeear   F:
      B(2) W(57.5)
     ( J-  Trudy Thornton )
     ( T-  Rick Wells )

    Top Pick
    1 Lord Polonius   F: 28X34
      B(5) W(58.5)
    Has been well backed to win this season but hasn't come up with the goods. Gets its best chance to break through here. Home track helps.
    Main Danger
    5 Ripped   F:
      B(2) W(57)
     ( J-  Andrew Calder )
    Won
    Dividends : $3.60 $2.20
    Bred to show some speed and that was evident in a recent trial. Meets a solid field on debut but it has more potential than most.
    Next Best
    6 Shipshape   F: 634X5
      B(4) W(56.5)
     ( J-  Sam Spratt )
    Didn't quite get a good run in transit last start, but battled on well enough. Drawn well and punters are getting good odds.
    Include in Multis
    4 Well Chosen   F: 89X4
      B(3) W(57)
    Better run for fourth last start and it shouldn't be too far away from them. Worth including.
    Longer Odds
    7 Melusina   F:
      B(1) W(56.5)
     ( J-  Shaun McKay )
    On debut and it gets the inside draw to jump from. Trial form has been solid and it could add some value.

    Not much between the majority of this field

    2 Way South   F: 4483
      B(2) W(58.5)
     ( J-  Masa Hashizume )
    Better run for third last time out and it gets every chance to win this. Nicely drawn and gets 3kg coming off its back. Value runner.
    Main Danger
    1 Navel Affair   F: 663
      B(3) W(58.5)
    Another which took a couple of runs to show its best. Handy third placing last start and it should be breaking through soon.
    Next Best
    5 Hvar   F: 80X76
      B(8) W(58.5)
     ( J-  Andrew Calder )
    Running out of chances but should find this find a little easier than recent targets. We're prepared to give only one more chance.

      B(6) W(58.5)

    The 'Day's Best'
    5 Playsameanpinball   F: 52
      B(8) W(57)
     ( J-  Shaun McKay )
     ( T-  Steven Cole )
    Much better run when flashing home for second last time out. Tricky draw but it should be very tough to hold out. Big chance.
    Main Danger
    8 Spelterini   F: 64373
      B(4) W(56.5)
     ( J-  Trudy Thornton )
    Won
    Dividends : $5.50 $1.90
    Two placings from its last three starts. Looks a type which could go to the next level now and break through for the maiden win.
    Next Best
      B(3) W(58.5)
     ( T-  Chris Wood )
    Did enough when fourth on debut to suggest it could win here. Drawn well and punters are getting fair each-way odds.
    Include in Multis
    9 Sepella   F: 8277X
      B(2) W(56.5)
     ( J-  Andrew Calder )
    Placed
    Dividend : $1.60
    Returns from a spell after running a couple of disappointing sevenths last campaign. Ran second prior to that, so consider on that.
    Longer Odds
    2 Burton   F: 53376
      B(6) W(58.5)
     ( J-  Masa Hashizume )
    The ability is there. Just needs to put the mind on the job. Nice odds on offer.

      B(6) W(59)
    Won
    Dividends : $3.20 $2.10
    Didn't fire last start but that was an impressive win fresh up. Has more ability than most here and that could show against this field.
    Main Danger
    3 Cameahotfriday   F: 65675
      B(3) W(58)
     ( J-  Sam Spratt )
    Form doesn't look that great but it's rarely too far away from the prize. Gets a good chance to score an overdue win here.
    Next Best
    2 Fluorobus   F: 4X043
      B(2) W(58.5)
     ( J-  Andrew Calder )
    Put the writing on the wall when third last start. Could continue that progression and it won't get a better chance to win.
    Include in Multis
    5 Fast Summer Rock   F: 8X17
      B(5) W(55)
    Scored an impressive win fresh up but didn't fire a shot last start. Could have suffered from second-up syndrome, so don't drop just yet.

    9 Annie's Song   F: 1757
      B(1) W(56)
    Won
    Dividends : $2.10 $1.20
    Couldn't have been more impressive on debut. Hasn't had much luck since but gets every chance off the inside draw here. Should be going close.
    Main Danger
    2 Annie Okay   F: 28670
      B(2) W(58)
     ( J-  Shaun McKay )
    We could see an Annie quinella. Last few starts haven't been great but the ability is there and an inside draw is ideal. Should improve.
    Next Best
    6 Boogie Easy   F: 42166
      B(10) W(57)
    Impressed when winning earlier this campaign. Only fair since and is drawn wide, but it comes into this with some luck. Consider.
