3 Magico   F: 52101
  B(7) W(58.5)

  B(14) W(58.5)
 ( J-  Hazel Schofer )
Placed
Dividend : $2.20

  B(13) W(58.5)
 ( T-  Lisa Latta )

Dividends : $6.10 $2.50
Good win three back and it could have put the writing on the wall last start. Drawn deep but that could be the place to come.
Include in Multis
14 Rose Bowl   F: X118X
  B(1) W(56)
Inside draw is good and it showed its ability last campaign. Scored two wins and that form would take it close.
Longer Odds
10 Sea Star   F: 376X0
  B(6) W(58)
