Top Pick
9 La Soeur   F: X5313
  B(4) W(56.5)
 ( J-  Lisa Allpress )
Won
Dividends : $5.10 $1.90
Good win two back and it was working home nicely last start. Gets an experienced rider and every chance from a good barrier draw.
Main Danger
6 Constant Barrage   F: 74632
  B(1) W(57.5)
 ( J-  Sam O'Malley )
 ( T-  Geoff Haigh )
Knocking on the door after two placings. Getting better with every run this preparation and the inside draw and apprentice claim helps.
Next Best
7 Stunning   F: 01542
  B(5) W(57)
 ( J-  Chris Johnson )
 ( T-  Lisa Latta )
Placed
Dividend : $2.30
Can be stunning on occasions but consistency is a little off. If they go quickly up front, it should be closing hard late.
Include in Multis
3 Uncle Bro   F: 64217
  B(9) W(59)
Showed what it can do two back but was well-held last start. Tricky draw but Parkes will need to work his magic. Each way chance.
Longer Odds
2 Pierian Spring   F: 91552
  B(2) W(59)
 ( J-  Ryan Elliot )
Capable rider in the saddle and it might try pinch this race around the turn.

Remarks

Many winning chances in the first

Top Pick
  B(1) W(55.5)
 ( J-  Craig Grylls )
Placed
Dividend : $1.80
Trial form is only average but it gets the inside draw and the progeny of Dundeel couldn't be running any better. Watch betting moves.

  B(2) W(57.5)
 ( T-  Roger Allen )
Placed
Dividend : $1.30

Next Best
3 Desert Magic   F: 53
  B(5) W(57.5)
Won
Dividends : $4.30 $1.50
Handy enough run for third last start. Warrants attention and it gets a slight weight claim in its favour.
Include in Multis
5 Carpe Diem   F:
  B(4) W(57.5)
 ( J-  Chris Johnson )
Always a chance and it could add some value to this race.

  B(8) W(57.5)
Has some ability and a 3kg claimer in the saddle. Showed speed last campaign so don't rule out.

Remarks

The form out of this race should stack up nicely

1 Virtuoso Lad   F: 51457

  B(2) W(58.5)
 ( J-  Craig Grylls )
Won
Dividends : $6.50 $2.40
She's not bad indeed. Good win last time out and punters are getting good each-way odds.
Main Danger
3 Grand Mayson   F: 42332
  B(1) W(59)
 ( J-  Vinnie Colgan )
Comes into this with four consecutive placings and that should be good enough form. Inside draw and it should be going close once again.
Next Best
10 Magico   F: 42521
  B(3) W(56.5)
 ( J-  Jake Bayliss )

Top Pick
3 All Paid Up   F: 1
  B(9) W(58.5)
Scored nicely on debut at Tauranga and despite the betting drift, it should be right around the mark again. Could mature into a nice type.
Main Danger
10 Chickaberinda   F: 1292
  B(1) W(57)
Nice win on debut and hasn't been far away in two of its three runs since. Gets the inside running and should go close.
Next Best
2 Malo Bik   F: 52357
  B(5) W(59)
Finds it tough to win a race but the ability is there. Should be included at each way odds as it puts itself in the race every time.

  B(10) W(56.5)
 ( J-  Lisa Allpress )
 ( T-  Kevin Gray )

  B(2) W(58.5)
 ( J-  Leith Innes )
Placed
Dividend : $1.40

  B(1) W(59.5)
 ( J-  Ryan Elliot )
Won
Dividends : $4.20 $1.60

7 Irish Flame   F: 14991
  B(8) W(58.5)
 ( J-  Craig Grylls )
Has book-ended to win with not much in the saddle, but found form last start. Good enough to kick on with it.
Include in Multis

3 Jessiegee   F: 52412

Main Danger
4 Artiste   F: 33141
  B(13) W(57)
Broke through for another win last start when sustaining a good run. Has good form lines for this and should go close again.

Include in Multis
15 Sinarahma   F: 13524
  B(5) W(57)
Just behind the winners of late and will need to find a length to win, but it's capable of doing that. Nice odds.
Longer Odds
16 Tantalising   F: 52113
  B(15) W(57)
