    4 The Grinder   F:
      B(3) W(58.5)
     ( J-  Lisa Allpress )
    Placed
    Dividend : $1.50
    On debut and it's a nicely-bred type. There is good betting support and that's a good sign. Should prove tough to beat.
    Main Danger
    1 Outa Cash   F: 3X302
      B(1) W(58.5)
     ( J-  Robert Hannam )
     ( T-  Gary Vile )
    Fought nicely when second last start after looking the winner. Knocking on the door and the inside draw is ideal. Goes close.
    Next Best
    5 Horlistic   F: 3
      B(2) W(56.5)
     ( T-  Ilone Kelly )
    Won
    Dividends : $4.80 $1.90
    Did enough when third on debut. Gets some weight relief for this run and a win wouldn't surprise.
    Include in Multis
    6 Polizzi   F: 5X67X
      B(5) W(56.5)
     ( J-  Jordan Bassett )
    A touch disappointing to date but dropping right down in weight should see improvement. Punters are getting nice odds.
    Longer Odds

      B(6) W(58.5)
     ( J-  Leah Hemi )
     ( T-  R W King )

      B(5) W(57.5)
    Won
    Dividends : $3.20 $2.30
    Will enjoy these conditions for its debut run. Has the breeding to suggest that it won't take long to get off the mark. Watch for late betting moves.
    Main Danger
    3 Martina Rose   F: 3
      B(7) W(55.5)
     ( J-  Lisa Allpress )
    Hit the line nicely enough on debut to warrant attention. Should be fitter for the run and be right around the mark. Must include.

    1 Sola Power   F: 5
      B(2) W(57.5)
     ( J-  Holly Andrew )

    Longer Odds
    7 Silent Approach   F: 9X
      B(6) W(55.5)
     ( T-  Gary Vile )

      B(4) W(55.5)
     ( J-  Lisa Allpress )

    5 Chickaberinda   F: 26X61
      B(1) W(57.5)

      B(3) W(59)
    Placed
    Dividend : $2.70
