Top PickThe 'Day's Best'
6 Rubira   F: X5580
  B(6) W(55.5)
Placed
Dividend : $1.20
Scratched from Ellerslie on Saturday and this is an easier target. Has been facing some tough fields of late and this is easier.
Main Danger
2 Ocean Billy   F: 761
  B(4) W(57.5)
 ( J-  Chelsea Burdan )
 ( T-  Bill Pomare )
Didn't look good at its first two starts but turned that around nicely to score last start. Gets a valuable 4kg claim and just needs a good ride.
Next Best
7 Savastep   F: 24251
  B(2) W(55.5)
 ( J-  Craig Grylls )
Built strongly to score last time out. Capable of putting wins together now and an inside draw sees it land close to the pace and kick strongly.
Include in Multis
8 Patsys Lass   F: 08924
  B(5) W(55.5)
Mixing its form but it could run into the money. Good backing late.
Longer Odds
5 Mont Ventoux   F: 37485
  B(7) W(56)
 ( J-  Shaun McKay )
Placed
Dividend : $3.90
Due to an improved run and it could battle away for a nice dividend.

Remarks

Different form lines throughout his field

Rubira looks a good bet

5 Nordic   F: 21828
  B(1) W(58)
 ( J-  Craig Grylls )
Placed
Dividend : $1.40
Did well to score earlier this season but it promised to kick on and hasn't. Allow another chance in a race like this.
Main Danger
6 Mamba   F: 162X2
  B(5) W(57.5)
Returned to racing with a good second placing. Likely to improve with the experience and it's paying nice odds to run a race here.
Next Best
8 Sweet Treat   F: 22422
  B(3) W(57.5)
 ( J-  Ryan Elliot )
Won
Dividends : $4.30 $1.60
Four second placings from its last five. Looks ready to win a race but for punters' sake, it will need to be showing winning form shortly.
Include in Multis
2 Scaglioni   F: 50465
  B(8) W(58.5)
 ( J-  Rebecca Scott )
Placed
Dividend : $3.00

4 Suffice To Say   F: X0031
  B(7) W(58.5)
 ( J-  Chris Johnson )
Did enough last start when winning to ensure it should be included here again.

Remarks

Couple of nice types have been well backed

Has been the best-backed runner after running second in both starts to date. Clearly has talent and it should be running well again here.
Main Danger
6 Mexican Tycoon   F: 25X44
  B(3) W(58)
 ( J-  Sam Spratt )
Placed
Dividend : $2.00

  B(5) W(58)
 ( J-  Cameron Lammas )
 ( T-  Tony Pike )

  B(10) W(58.5)
 ( J-  Ryan Elliot )

Top Pick
2 Sleeping Beauty   F: 11362
  B(3) W(57.5)
 ( J-  Darren Danis )
Chances increase significantly if the rain comes overnight. Loves the rain-affected ground and remains a top chance even if the track stays dry.
Main Danger
3 Prom Queen   F: 1253X
  B(5) W(54)
Hasn't quite fulfilled the promise it once showed, but it has far too much speed to discount. Goes forward and should provide some excitement.
Next Best
6 Malambo   F: 0480X
  B(7) W(54)
 ( J-  Ryan Elliot )
Didn't get all favours across the Tasman but this is easier. Another runner with break-neck speed and it should be in this for a long way.
Include in Multis
8 Te Toro Pearl   F: 111X2
  B(4) W(54)
 ( J-  Cameron Lammas )
 ( T-  Jon Miller )
Produced a string of wins last campaign and returned in fine order last start. Comes right into calculations with the 54kg on its back.

Top PickThe 'Best Each Way'
11 Voler Pour Moi   F: 38161
  B(5) W(55)
 ( J-  Darren Danis )
Tough to overlook its most recent form with two wins from its last three starts. Carries 7kg less than Beauden so include.
Main Danger
5 Azaboy   F: X4X93
  B(1) W(58.5)
 ( J-  Andrew Calder )
Won
Dividends : $4.90 $1.90
Gets the inside draw and it's coming off a third placing. That was its best run for some time now and that's a positive for this.
Next Best
7 Mental Telepathy   F: 74907
  B(4) W(57.5)
 ( J-  Craig Grylls )
Form appears average but conditions suit better here. Nicely backed in the market and that should tell punters something.
Include in Multis
10 Valante   F: 23642
  B(10) W(55.5)
 ( T-  Graeme Lord )
Good run for second last time out and it could build on that effort. Nice chance.
Longer Odds
6 Storming The Tower   F: 525X8
  B(3) W(58)
 ( J-  Vinnie Colgan )
 ( T-  John Bell )
Can run the odd cheeky race at this distance. Don't discount.

  B(10) W(58.5)
 ( J-  Cameron Lammas )
Won
Dividends : $1.90 $1.20
Living up to its name and although drawn wide, it will likely sit back and come with a big burst late. Nice types in the making.
Main Danger
15 Fast And Furious   F: 85X64
  B(3) W(56)
 ( J-  Andrew Calder )
Improving this season and another win shouldn't be too far off. Drawn well and it could add some value at nice odds.

 ( J-  Andrew Calder )
 ( T-  K & G Opie )
Won
Dividends : $2.60 $1.50
Didn't show much last time out but form either side of a spell was good. Drawn well and it should be right around the mark.
Main Danger
9 Pop Star Princess   F: 65226
  B(2) W(55.5)
Placed
Dividend : $1.40
Hasn't had the best of times this season, mostly off the track. Form prior to last start was good and that should take it close.
