Top Pick
6 Hoist   F: 73331
  B(1) W(57.5)
 ( J-  Opie Bosson )
Placed
Dividend : $1.30
Got the job done nicely last start and it's good to see Opie Bosson in the saddle. Inside draw but it might look to move wider in the straight.
Main Danger
4 Korakonui   F: 55144
  B(5) W(58)
Won
Dividends : $3.70 $1.90
Impressive win three back but has been held in check since. Small field suits and it could get the last shot at them.
Next Best
3 Amorata   F: 40242
  B(4) W(58)
 ( J-  Chris Johnson )
More than capable of winning this race to break a long run of outs. Deserves to be included in this small field.
Include in Multis
5 Vittachi   F: 09428
  B(2) W(58)
 ( J-  Reese Jones )
 ( T-  Jacob McKay )
Will enjoy taking on a slightly easier field than last start. Needs to find about 1-2 lengths in order to win but is capable.
Longer Odds
  B(9)
 ( J-  )
Found confidence when scoring last start and the outside often wins against these small fields.

Remarks

Small field but an interesting affair

Hoist should run well again

Top Pick
5 Beauden   F: 71511
  B(8) W(60)
 ( J-  Chris Johnson )
Placed
Dividend : $1.50
Has found red-hot form with three wins from its last four starts. 60kg on the back which could deflate that turn-of-foot but it's a classy type.
Main Danger
7 Rock On Wood   F: 416X1
  B(9) W(58.5)
 ( J-  Ryan Elliot )
Won
Dividends : $3.30 $1.40
Resumed with a stellar victory last start and it's more than capable of putting another win together. Just needs cover from out deep.
Next Best
10 Paisley Park   F: X1315
  B(4) W(55.5)
Twice a winner already this campaign and it has looked brilliant at times. Nicely weighted and a good chance to score here.
Include in Multis
2 Sergeant Blast   F: 09X64
  B(2) W(61)
 ( J-  Sam O'Malley )
 ( T-  Sam Lennox )
Better for two runs in this campaign and the 3kg claimer in the saddle is a big help. Looks an each-way hope.
Longer Odds
1 Gorbachev   F: 24531
  B(10) W(61)
Might find some of these too slick but it could run well again and pay a nice price.

Remarks

Good betting field with many each-way types engaged

Selections (Click horse or jockey for additional information)

  View Full Field
Top Pick
10 Lady Rudolph   F: 2133
  B(4) W(57)
Yet to run worse than third in four starts to date and it should be in the money again. Drawn well and it looms as a winning hope.
Main Danger
9 Just Fabulous   F: 33130
  B(14) W(57.5)
 ( J-  Opie Bosson )
Didn't fire in the Wellington Guineas but this is easier and it looked good prior to that in the Eulogy. Worth another chance.
Next Best
1 White Shield   F: X2023
  B(12) W(59)
 ( J-  Jake Bayliss )
Beaten on its merits the last couple but it should be in this for a long way. Each way odds on offer for punters and it should be a popular pick.
Include in Multis
11 Robusto   F: 10X42
  B(8) W(57)
Placed
Dividend : $2.20
Good run for second last time out and that confidence could take it to the next level. Should have every chance to win.

8 Lala Land   F: X3548
  B(2) W(58)
 ( J-  Chris Johnson )

14 Spring Delight   F: 22101
  B(1) W(54.5)
 ( J-  Craig Grylls )
Placed
Dividend : $1.60
Scored last time out with ease. Going places and from the inside draw, it only needs to get off the rail at some stage to win.
Main Danger
1 The Chosen One   F: 22470
  B(8) W(56.5)
 ( J-  Troy Harris )
Won
Dividends : $4.20 $1.80
Last few runs have been poor, despite coming in a tough grade. Nicely weighted and it has come for specking throughout the week.
Next Best
2 Langkawi   F: 30015
  B(7) W(56.5)
 ( J-  Shaun McKay )
 ( T-  Peter McKay )
Has enough ability to beat this field on its day. Good run last time out and it only needs to find a half-length in that performance.
Include in Multis
9 Nordic   F: 22182
  B(10) W(56.5)
Must be considered a chance on recent form and it could have the last say at them. Looking ready to rise to the next level.
Longer Odds
5 Deels Done   F: 215
  B(5) W(56.5)
 ( J-  Opie Bosson )
In good hands and Bosson takes the ride. Good enough to take this out despite limited experience.

Remarks

 ( J-  Shaun McKay )
 ( T-  Peter McKay )
Won
Dividends : $2.60 $1.40
Likes to run fourth this campaign but has these for speed. Gets a good run from the draw and it should settle close and kick strongly.
Main Danger
11 Heart Of Stone   F: 2X1
  B(1) W(55.5)
 ( J-  Chris Johnson )
 ( T-  John Bary )
Placed
Dividend : $1.60
Gets the inside draw so it could dictate where the top pick goes. Nice win last start and it could have matured into a handy filly.

 ( J-  Opie Bosson )
 ( T-  Jacob McKay )
Placed
Dividend : $2.40
Did the job nicely three back and hasn't been far away since. Always around the mark and this should be no different.
Include in Multis
3 Bit Lippy   F: 89630
  B(8) W(58.5)
 ( J-  Craig Grylls )
Out of form but its early ability would see it running close. Has won over $100,000 and it shouldn't be discounted.
Longer OddsThe 'Best Roughie'
5 What A Smasher   F: 60212
  B(3) W(57.5)
 ( J-  Holly Andrew )
 ( T-  Kevin Gray )

  B(5) W(56.5)
 ( J-  Opie Bosson )
Won
Dividends : $1.70 $1.30
Winner of three from five and they have all been quality wins. Dug deep to score at Ellerslie last start and that's the sign of a good horse.
Main Danger
2 Equinox   F: 151
  B(1) W(56.5)
Didn't do it as easily has predicted last start but it still got the job done. Gets the inside draw and it could kick away at the top of the straight.
Next Best
6 Aalaalune   F: 24632
  B(7) W(54.5)
 ( J-  Reese Jones )
 ( T-  Jacob McKay )
Obviously has talent but lack of wins are a concern. Needs to show it can win and not just run on every start. Interesting runner.
Include in Multis
4 Holy Mongolemperor   F: 52
  B(8) W(56.5)
 ( J-  Troy Harris )
Rattled home for second in a tough race last start. Sign of good things to come and a win here wouldn't shock.
Longer Odds
8 Bavella   F: 11X64
  B(2) W(54.5)
 ( J-  Leith Innes )
 ( T-  Lance Noble )
Struggling its last two but goes into the mix based on previous form.

3 Beefeater   F: 82943
  B(7) W(55.5)
 ( J-  Chris Johnson )
Placed
Dividend : $1.80
Hasn't been too far away from the winner of late and this isn't a strong field. Tricky draw but Chris Johnson will be patient and look for gaps late.
Main Danger
4 Magnum   F: 32477
  B(4) W(55)
 ( J-  Ryan Elliot )
Placed
Dividend : $1.50
Back-to-back moderate performances but in races stronger than this. Nicely weighted and it gets a good chance to score.
Next Best
7 Sweepstake   F: 32042
  B(3) W(53)
 ( J-  Lisa Allpress )
Much better effort for second last time out and getting in with 53kg with Lisa Allpress in the saddle is ideal. Each way claims.
Include in Multis
2 Tomelilla   F: 3319X
  B(5) W(58)
 ( J-  Troy Harris )
Resumes here and its best should take it close. Carries more weight than most but the odds are appealing.
Longer Odds
8 La Bella Rosa   F: 41485
  B(8) W(53)
 ( J-  Leah Hemi )

Handy type which has a light weight and upset claims.

  B(7) W(55)
 ( J-  Ryan Elliot )

Wouldn't mind it a little wetter but it has class on its side. Nicely weighted at 55kg and it should be right around the mark.
Main Danger
8 Hunta Pence   F: 25711
  B(11) W(55)
Has turned the corner this preparation with quality back-to-back wins. Beating some nice types along the way so include here.

Include in Multis
6 Giovanni Canaletto   F: X4603
  B(9) W(55)
 ( J-  Jake Bayliss )
Only a one-run winner but there's quality there. Backed nicely for this and it should be threatening down the straight.

7 Jewel Of Patch   F: 211X5
