Top Pick
11 Ruby Negroni   F: 335
  B(5) W(54)
 ( T-  Jason Price )
Indicative Odds: $3.60
Has had three runs in this campaign and that fitness bodes well for this. Gets a good run from the draw and a light weight on the back.
Main Danger
6 Luminous   F: 223X
  B(11) W(56.5)
 ( J-  Michael McNab )
Indicative Odds: $3.40
Three starts for three placings when last in work. Awkward draw but it has potential and could break maiden grades here.
Next Best
8 Damesel   F: X3545
  B(4) W(56.5)
Indicative Odds: $10.00
Has been right around the mark in four starts this time in. Doesn't need to improve too much to take this out. Nice odds.

18 Mamarella   F: 78
  B(12) W(56.5)
 ( J-  Leith Innes )
Indicative Odds: $10.00
Has been well backed in two disappointing runs to date. Looks better than that and dropping back in distance could help.

  B(3) W(56.5)
 ( J-  Michael McNab )
Indicative Odds: $2.40
Showed good pace when last in work and it could hit the ground running. Has been backed accordingly and getting a good barrier helps.
Main Danger
1 Parisian   F: 2
  B(17) W(58.5)
 ( J-  Ryan Elliot )
Indicative Odds: $4.50
Would have been shorter in the betting had it not been for the barrier. Needs an awful amount of luck but it has the talent to win.

  B(4) W(56.5)
 ( J-  Darren Danis )

 ( J-  Eilish McCall )
 ( T-  Danica Guy )

6 Petrachor   F: 1
  B(12) W(57)
 ( J-  Cameron Lammas )
Indicative Odds: $6.50
Drawn wide but it looked handy on debut when winning at Hastings. Has a nice turn-of-foot and it should be respected here.
Main Danger
3 You're Welcome   F: 15X
  B(3) W(59)
 ( J-  Opie Bosson )
Indicative Odds: $4.00
Did the job nicely on debut but disappointed as the odds-on favourite following that. Drawn to get a good run and Opie is a key booking.
Next Best
7 Quizzy Lizzy   F: 13
  B(13) W(57)
Indicative Odds: $6.50
Another debut winner which didn't quite lived up to expectations last start. Drawn wide but that could be the place to be in the wet.

  B(11) W(54.5)
 ( J-  Craig Grylls )

Top Pick
11 Petite Rose   F: 3
  B(10) W(54)
Indicative Odds: $3.00
Wasn't beaten far on debut and the rise in distance should be ideal. Gets in light with 51kg and that brings it right into contention.
Main Danger
13 Good Luck Charm   F:
  B(7) W(56)
 ( J-  Craig Grylls )
Indicative Odds: $4.00
Has trial form coming into this and the Charm Spirit progeny are running well. Follow any positive betting moves come race day.
Next Best
1 New York Jazz   F: 4
  B(11) W(58.5)
Indicative Odds: $4.60
Just over a length behind the winner on debut and it has upside. Drawn deep but has been well backed and should go close.
Include in Multis
3 Snakeye   F:
  B(13) W(58.5)
 ( J-  Troy Harris )
Indicative Odds: $8.00
Bred to handle the wet and it has solid trial form. Drifting in the betting but should run as one of the better each-way types.

  B(1) W(58.5)

  B(3) W(58.5)
 ( J-  Chris Johnson )
 ( T-  John Bary )
Indicative Odds: $4.60
Drifting in the betting but it showed enough last preparation to warrant attention here. Another draw well and it could sit off the favourites back and launch late.
Next Best
4 Princess Rihanna   F: 710X4
  B(4) W(59)
 ( J-  Taiki Yanagida )
Indicative Odds: $5.50

Include in Multis
13 Mohaka   F: 172X2
  B(6) W(56)
 ( J-  Robert Hannam )
Indicative Odds: $10.00
Owns consistent form and Hannan could sit it on the speed and kick strongly. Punters are getting good odds for the risk.
Longer Odds
10 Joy Anna   F: 43630
  B(8) W(58)
Indicative Odds: $19.00
Punters are patiently waiting for an improved run. That could come here.
