      B(1) W(57.5)
     ( J-  Troy Harris )
    Placed
    Dividend : $1.10
    Tough to take the odds but it should be breaking maiden grades very soon. Inside draw adds to the appeal.

     ( J-  Leith Innes )
    Won
    Dividends : $8.30 $1.60
    Better run for third last time out and it could continue with that improvement. Over the odds and punters could get the value.

      B(13) W(59.5)
    Going to need luck from the draw but it has time to find cover over 2200m. In good form and it should be going close against this field.
