  B(2) W(56.5)
 ( J-  Rosie Myers )
Won
Dividends : $3.60 $1.80

  B(11) W(58.5)
 ( T-  Roger Allen )
Placed
Dividend : $2.00

  B(8) W(56.5)
 ( J-  Chris Johnson )
 ( T-  Sylvia Kay )

  B(10) W(59)
 ( J-  Hazel Schofer )
Won
Dividends : $2.20 $1.30

  B(3) W(58)
Overdue a win and although it will have to lump a big weight, it's more than capable. Has been specked throughout the week.
Next Best
5 Hard To Be Humble   F: 160X6
