1 Class Above   F: 01133
  B(1) W(68)
 ( J-  Ryan Elliot )
 ( T-  Kevin Myers )
Won
Dividends : $2.80 $1.30
As its name suggests, it could be a class above this field. Running well this preparation and getting 3kg off its back only help. Top chance.
Main Danger
2 The Bieber   F: X00X2
  B(2) W(68)
 ( J-  Lemmy Douglas )
 ( T-  Ken Duncan )
Placed
Dividend : $2.70
Huge run for second at massive odds last start. That was an encouraging sign and it should run well again. Adds some value.
Next Best
4 El Bayardo   F: 17X55
  B(8) W(68)
 ( J-  Hamish McNeill )
Hasn't been too far away this season and it should be fitter for those two runs. Right in this.
Include in Multis
7 Cool Hand Duke   F: 07X75
  B(9) W(68)
 ( J-  Aaron Kuru )
 ( T-  John Bary )
Better run on the flat last start and it looks a natural hurdler. Punters are getting nice odds to take the risk.
Longer Odds
6 Brakbar   F: 8444X
  B(4) W(68)
 ( J-  Mathew Gillies )
Another handy flat performer which should be in the thick of the action at nice odds.

Remarks

Many of these could go on with it over the jumps

Include in Multis
3 Delegate   F: 00800
  B(8) W(65)
 ( J-  Mathew Gillies )
