Top Pick
4 Sweet Treat   F: 24221
  B(4) W(56.5)
 ( J-  Ryan Elliot )
Placed
Dividend : $1.30
Broke through for the win last time out and it looks well-placed for this. Right in the thick of it and punters have come.
Main Danger
2 Amorata   F: 24232
  B(2) W(58)
Knocking on the door of a win after multiple placings coming into this. Nice odds on offer for a consistent type.
Next Best
3 Anarchy   F: 57103
  B(8) W(57.5)
 ( J-  Leith Innes )
 ( T-  Tony Pike )
Did the job nicely enough three back at Hastings. Should be suited by this track and it's a top chance.
Include in Multis
7 Desert Storm   F: X0254
  B(1) W(54)
Won
Dividends : $9.20 $2.50
Not quite letting down well enough to win of late but it could improve to win here. Inside draw and light weight helps.
Longer Odds
5 Nothing Trivial   F: 75435
  B(7) W(55)
 ( J-  Darren Danis )
Usually around the mark and the odds make it an obvious inclusion.

Remarks

Interesting to have a 2400m race kick off the card

Top Pick
1 Rainbow Dash   F: 1261
  B(2) W(57)
Placed
Dividend : $1.20
Looked like a rising talent when scoring last start. Could be one to rise through the grades and it's worth putting on top.
Main Danger
6 Catalyst   F:
  B(8) W(56.5)
There's good support on debut and that's a good sign. Dual trial winner and the breeding is impressive. Big chance.
Next Best
3 Super Pursuit   F: 2
  B(7) W(56.5)
 ( J-  Andrew Calder )
Solid run for second on debut and it should strengthen up from that. Might need some early luck from the draw but it shouldn't be far away from the speed.
Include in Multis
4 Mongolian Heaven   F: 53
  B(6) W(56.5)
Doesn't often take long for the "Mongolian" runners to win. Paying nice odds and punters should expect improvement.

14 Showbeel   F:
  B(5) W(54.5)
Nice breeding and it could run a cheeky race on debut.

Top Pick
13 Just Treasure   F: 8X473
  B(9) W(56.5)
 ( J-  Shaun McKay )
Placed
Dividend : $2.30
Not the most attractive form line but it ran well for third last start and it could be the big improver from that race. Odds make it worth the risk.
Main Danger
8 Pineapple Lump   F: 43
  B(3) W(58)
 ( J-  Opie Bosson )
Placed
Dividend : $1.30
Wasn't overly delicious when well-backed last start but it's another which will improve and win soon. That win could come here.
Next Best
15 Baby Face   F: 52
  B(16) W(56)
Fair run on debut before running second last start. Looks tough to beat and it should enjoy a nice trip throughout.
Include in Multis
7 Operator   F: 482X4
  B(5) W(58)
 ( T-  Tony Pike )

  B(2) W(57.5)
 ( J-  Cameron Lammas )
Won
Dividends : $2.20 $1.40
Scored a big win two back and was outclassed last start. Better suited to this level of racing and it should go close.
Next Best
5 Sahar   F: 16X44
  B(7) W(57.5)
 ( J-  Opie Bosson )
Ready to show its best after two fourth placings. Gets Opie in the saddle and we'll likely see a betting push on the day.
Include in Multis
8 Socialights   F: 20X31
  B(5) W(55.5)
Odds are steadily dropping following a good win last start. Facing a steep rise in class but we wouldn't discount its chances.

  B(2) W(56)
 ( J-  Leith Innes )
 ( T-  Tony Pike )
Placed
Dividend : $1.60
The Sacred's never take long to win and it looked good running second last start. Right in this and the odds appeal.
Next Best
8 The Garrison   F: 45X35
  B(1) W(58)
 ( J-  Darren Danis )
Drawn to get a good run off the inside barrier. That's going to help this talented type which could score an overdue win.
Include in Multis
1 Jet Set   F: 7352
  B(5) W(58.5)
 ( J-  Opie Bosson )
Nearing a win after two placings from four starts. In the right hands here and it should be close to the mark at double-figure odds.
Longer OddsThe 'Best Roughie'
13 Into The Groove   F: 85X35
  B(9) W(56.5)
Never too far away from the mark and it has a turn-of-foot which could be sparked here.

Top PickThe 'Best Each Way'
7 Hasahalo   F: 0X069
  B(5) W(57)
 ( J-  Sam Spratt )
Has a better turn-of-foot than most here and it was a tragedy beaten last start. Looks well-placed here to run a big race and it's over the odds.
Main Danger
4 Pretty To Sea   F: 18315
  B(9) W(58.5)
 ( J-  Leith Innes )
Former Australian which won nicely two back. Kicked on well last start and it should be tough to beat.
Next Best
8 She's Not Bad   F: 35511
  B(11) W(56.5)
 ( J-  Opie Bosson )
Rising through the grades nicely after consecutive wins. Showed them a clean pair of heels last start and that should be a good form guide.
Include in Multis
5 Hanger   F: 10323
  B(4) W(58.5)
 ( J-  Ryan Elliot )
Turning into a "gunna" but it's slightly too good to leave out. Drawn well and this is D-Day as to whether it has stakes ability.
Longer Odds
6 Swisswatch   F: 29174
  B(13) W(57.5)
Could go forward and lead them throughout. Worth including at the odds.
