      B(1) W(59.5)
     ( J-  Troy Harris )
    Won
    Dividends : $3.70 $1.70
    Getting closer to a win after consecutive second placings this term. Gets the gun run from the inside draw and it should prove tough to beat.
    Main Danger
    2 Leaf   F: 17491
      B(10) W(59.5)
    Scored nicely last start, making it two wins from its last five attempts. Tricky draw but it's good enough to continue that form.
    Next Best
    5 Peace Train   F: 67X1
      B(6) W(59)
    Turned its form around nicely to score last start. Looks likely to kick on with it now and the money is there again.

    6 River Run   F: 8159X
      B(7) W(59)
     ( J-  Leith Innes )

    Looks to have ability despite owning an inconsistent form line. Stable is running well and that roll could continue.

      B(3) W(55)
    Won
    Dividends : $2.70 $1.40
    Well-bred type which looked the goods at the trials. Has been well supported with bookmakers and we're expecting a big effort.
    Main Danger
      B(1) W(57)
     ( J-  Craig Grylls )
    Bred to show early speed and that was evident at the trials. Gets the inside draw and that's important over this distance at Te Rapa.
    Next Best
    4 O'Canada   F:
      B(4) W(57)
     ( J-  Sam Spratt )
    Another speedy customer which could look to roll forward. Has shown enough ability at the trials to warrant attention.
    Include in Multis
    3 Lionize   F: 5
      B(7) W(57)

    The 'Best Each Way'
    12 Sai Fah   F: 31123
      B(9) W(54)
    Placed
    Dividend : $2.00
    Tough to look past its form considering it's down in the weights at 54kg. That makes it tough to beat and punters are getting value odds.
    Main Danger
    8 Short Fuse   F: 52X87
      B(3) W(55.5)
     ( J-  Cameron Lammas )
    Better than what it has been showing in two runs back from a spell. Draws well here and we're expecting a much-improved effort.
    Next Best
    5 Swisswatch   F: 1744X
      B(6) W(57.5)
     ( J-  Sam Weatherley )
    Placed
    Dividend : $2.40
    Returns from a spell and it usually finds form quickly. Likely to push forward and try lead throughout.
    Include in Multis
    2 Pop Star Princess   F: X6156
      B(1) W(57.5)
    Won
    Dividends : $5.30 $1.90
    Mixing its form of late but is talented at best. Drawn to receive all favours and it's another on-pace type. Consider here.
    Longer Odds
    4 Cyber Attack   F: 798X9
      B(2) W(57.5)
     ( J-  Jason Waddell )

      B(6) W(60)
     ( J-  Rebecca Scott )
    Placed
    Dividend : $2.30
    Solid placing fresh up and it should only improve with the run. Gets a valuable 3kg off its back and there's value in the odds.
    Main Danger
    3 Captive   F: 03301
      B(7) W(59)
     ( J-  Sam Spratt )
    Turned around a poor effort two back to score nicely last start. Could kick on with it now but the odds are a little short. Must be included.

      B(4) W(59)
     ( J-  Jason Waddell )
    Placed
    Dividend : $1.50
    Took an age to break through and although it wasn't a quick race, it could strengthen up and win again. Worth including.

    Not running up to the best of its ability. Better run for fourth last start so keep it safe at each-way odds.
    Longer Odds
    8 Los Angeles   F: 0X082
      B(10) W(57.5)
     ( J-  Trudy Thornton )
    Better run for second last start. Goes over the odds in this.

     ( T-  John Bell )
    Won
    Dividends : $3.80 $1.60
    Looked gone on the turn last start but picked up late. That's the sign of a good type and it's a quality animal. Deserves to run as favourite.
    Main Danger
    3 Scott Base   F: 874X3
      B(5) W(58.5)
     ( J-  Troy Harris )
    Needed the run last start and we're expecting better this time around. Drawn well and it will be putting in the big bounds late.

    8 Campari   F: 20X73
      B(2) W(53)
     ( J-  Craig Grylls )

    Include in Multis
    9 Pierina   F: X3381
      B(9) W(53)
    Threw its hat into the ring when winning last start. There has been good support for this and that's a good sign.

    2 Lincoln King   F: X2011

    Tough from the draw but it has really hit form its last couple of starts. Could continue on its winning ways here. Good enough odds to take.

    1 In A Twinkling   F: 74011
      B(6) W(59)

    7 Strolling Vagabond   F: 52372

    1 Yearn   F: 37X21
      B(13) W(57)
