     ( J-  Robert Hannam )
     ( T-  Lisa Latta )

     ( J-  Leah Hemi )

      B(4) W(56.5)
     ( J-  Dylan Turner )
    Placed
    Dividend : $1.10
    Big run for third last time out. Looks a nice type in the making and it should be taking this out at its best. Ideal barrier and weight.

      B(2) W(56)
     ( J-  Lisa Allpress )
     ( T-  Matt Dixon )

     ( T-  Lisa Latta )

      B(10) W(58)
     ( J-  Mereana Hudson )

    Turned its form around in style last start when running second. 3kg comes off the back and we wouldn't be leaving it out.

    11 La Soeur   F: 1313X
      B(6) W(56)
     ( J-  Leah Hemi )
