     ( J-  Michael McNab )

    8 Spirited   F: 7205X

      B(9) W(58.5)

      B(7) W(56.5)

     ( J-  Darryl Bradley )
    Won
    Dividends : $6.50 $2.40
    Good enough to win consecutive races when last in work. That form should hold up nicely and although short of its best, it should go close.
    Main Danger
    2 Paisley Park   F: 32432
      B(4) W(60)
     ( J-  Trudy Thornton )
    Not lacking fitness and that could play a big factor here. Good effort for second last time out and it should push them close at nice odds.

    19 Ricky Baker   F: 257X7
      B(3) W(55)
    Kylie Fawcett's runner was very unlucky last time, being hampered 150m out. Course winner twice and good draw
