Top Pick
8 Salt Bay   F: 14311

 ( J-  Darren Danis )
Capped off consistent performances with a win last time out. Gets a 2kg claim in the saddle and that could make all the difference.
Next Best
3 Malambo   F: 480X4
  B(1) W(58)

  B(4) W(68)

 ( J-  Buddy Lammas )
 ( T-  Ken Duncan )
Won

Next Best
1 Thenamesbond   F: 68PX0

Proven jumper which rarely goes a bad race at Te Rapa. Should be right around the mark as usual.
Include in Multis
7 Magic Wonder   F: 11X68
  B(7) W(66)
 ( J-  Mathew Gillies )
 ( T-  Jo Rathbone )

  B(9) W(65)
Battles away and it could add some value to selections.

Top PickThe 'Best Each Way'
13 Hasabro   F: X9134
  B(4) W(54)
Made good ground last start and that should benefit it going forward. Has experience in Australia and that should take it a long way.
Main Danger
11 Bobby Dee   F: 17463
  B(12) W(55)
 ( J-  Craig Grylls )
Won
Dividends : $4.00 $1.90
Good form around some stakes graded races. Drawn deep but it will likely settle worse of midfield and come with a big late run.
Next Best
3 Artiste   F: 31415
  B(7) W(57.5)
Not the most consistent winner but it's rarely far away. Scored well two back and wasn't overly disappointing last start. Chance again.
Include in Multis
9 Cha Siu Bao   F: 13353
  B(14) W(55.5)
 ( J-  Shaun McKay )
Three third placings from its last four starts and it could be around the mark here. Just needs to race within itself.
Longer Odds
2 Excalibur   F: 46064
  B(2) W(59.5)
 ( J-  Troy Harris )
Has race fitness to call upon and an inside draw helps.

  B(6) W(56.5)

Main Danger
8 Folk Dress   F: 4211
  B(7) W(54.5)
 ( J-  Craig Grylls )
Living up to its reputation with quality back-to-back wins. Gets in well off on the weights and it should have every chance to shine.
Next Best
10 Ramazzotti   F: 1
  B(2) W(54.5)
Placed
Dividend : $2.80
Impressive on debut and it has many more wins to come. Drawn well and will likely sit just behind the speed and flash late.

Won
Dividends : $6.60 $1.90

Next Best
11 Eleanor Rigby   F: 38167

Include in Multis
1 Beached As Bro   F: 241X5
  B(3) W(59)
