Top Pick
1 Jager Bombed   F: 24X13
  B(8) W(57.5)
 ( T-  Tony Pike )
Placed
Dividend : $1.10
Highly talented type which scored well fresh up and wasn't far behind last start. Has been well backed and we're not surprised.
Main Danger
6 Diva Express   F: 3X251
  B(6) W(55.5)
 ( J-  Vinnie Colgan )
Scored with style last start and that form should stack up nicely for this. Just needs some cover from a tricky draw.
Next Best
  B(2) W(56)
 ( J-  Craig Grylls )
Looked decent at the trials and the "not usuals" have a good record. Right in this race and should be going close.
Include in Multis
7 Kaareraway   F:
  B(3) W(54)
 ( J-  Cameron Lammas )
Placed
Dividend : $2.00
Has scored a trial win and has a light weight. That could be enough to win this race and it could offer some good value.
Longer Odds
2 Zelenski   F: 3
  B(1) W(56)
 ( J-  Trudy Thornton )
Won
Dividends : $13.70 $2.50
Did enough on debut to suggest it could run well here. Shouldn't be left out.

Remarks

There's some smart types lining up in this

Top Pick
7 Massachusetts   F: 242X2
  B(12) W(55.5)
 ( J-  Andrew Calder )
Finding it tough to win a race but it has plenty of ability. Drawing wide is the big negative but it has good barrier speed to its credit.
Main Danger
1 Here Comes Faffy   F: 50X42
  B(4) W(57.5)
 ( J-  Masa Hashizume )
Placed
Dividend : $1.70
Much better run for second last time out and the 4kg claim is only going to help its chances. Right in this and punters are coming for it.
Next Best
2 Saintly Way   F: 669X3
  B(5) W(57.5)
 ( J-  Craig Grylls )
Another which was impressive when placing last time out. Only going to improve with more racing and it should be right around the mark.
Include in Multis
3 Butterfield   F: 64
  B(10) W(57.5)
Two runs to date and wasn't that far behind them last start. Going well enough to score a minor upset here.
Longer Odds
4 Making Waves   F:
  B(8) W(57.5)
 ( J-  Sam Spratt )
Could make waves on debut and it should handle the track nicely.

Remarks

Looks an even field on paper

Main Danger
8 Mumms Jewel   F: 3X411
  B(9) W(56)
 ( J-  Cameron Lammas )
Back-to-back winner coming into this and it's still paying each-way odds. Should be right around the mark here.
Next Best
3 Salt Bay   F: 43116
  B(5) W(58)
Only fair last start but looked good prior to that, winning two on the bounce. Drawn well here and it should be going close once again.
Include in Multis
5 Copper Mine   F: 55X15
  B(2) W(58)
 ( J-  Andrew Calder )
Placed
Dividend : $2.10

Top PickThe 'Best Each Way'
4 Grand Award   F: 44X4
  B(2) W(58.5)
 ( J-  Craig Grylls )
A little disappointing to date but hasn't lost many admirers. Better than advertised and it should be going close in this.
Main Danger
  B(1) W(58.5)
Placed
Dividend : $2.90
Scored a trial win and we're surprised it's not shorter in the betting. Gets the inside draw and that could see it land on the pace.
Next Best
12 Chapeau   F: 27423
  B(13) W(56.5)
 ( J-  Cameron Lammas )
Not ideally placed with the wide barrier draw but it deserves to win a race shortly. Has been knocking on the door and the odds are appealing.
Include in Multis
1 Kiwi Ace   F: 6X426
  B(6) W(58.5)
Placed
Dividend : $2.70
Another runner which should have scored a win by now. Looked good running second two back and anything close to that is good form.
Longer Odds
2 Drake Bay   F: X0X45
  B(4) W(58.5)
 ( J-  Vinnie Colgan )
Two runs coming into this have been solid. Could add value.

Main Danger
11 Don't Doubt Me   F: 31466
  B(9) W(56)
 ( J-  Darren Danis )
Placed
Dividend : $2.70
Has a win this campaign and drops in weight to 54kg. That could make all the difference and we're confident of a good run.
Next Best
12 Boogie Easy   F: X0654
  B(11) W(55.5)
 ( J-  Trudy Thornton )
Getting closer to a win after three solid efforts. Doesn't have to improve too much to figure in the finish here.
Include in Multis
4 Call Me Murphy   F: 43X16
  B(13) W(58.5)
 ( J-  Cameron Lammas )
Needs some luck from the draw but it's ability could take it close. Nice win two back and chance to rebound from a poor showing last start.
