      B(1) W(58.5)
     ( J-  Lisa Allpress )
    Placed
    Dividend : $1.60
    Didn't fire last start but form prior was good. Scored an impressive win two back and it should use the inside draw well.
    Main Danger
    3 Roc Legend   F: 15
      B(6) W(59)
    Did the job nicely on debut before running fifth behind Off Shaw. That form could stack up and it has been well backed to win.

     ( J-  Robert Hannam )
    Won
    Dividends : $3.50 $2.20
    Wasn't doing much until it won last time out. That breakthrough win could see it start winning more consistently. Right in this.
    Include in Multis
    1 Zac Brown   F: 87720
      B(3) W(59.5)
     ( J-  Holly Andrew )
    Another that needs to overcome a poor run last time out. Is talented at best and the small field could help it.
    Longer Odds
    6 Sheza Beach Babe   F: 51X03
      B(7) W(56.5)
     ( J-  Madan Singh )
    Better run last start when third. Could run well in this.

     ( T-  John Bary )

    Dividend : $1.70
    Capable type that scored a good win two back and didn't have all luck in running last time out. Light weight of 54kg helps.

     ( J-  Chelsea Burdan )
    Won

    4 Maria Dior   F: 7X872
      B(3) W(54)
     ( J-  Temyia Taiaroa )
    Getting better with every run this time in. Not an easy race to win but 51kg is ideal. Shouldn't be far away.

    2 Stradivarius   F: 54836
      B(4) W(58.5)
     ( J-  Leah Hemi )

     ( J-  Temyia Taiaroa )
