  B(5) W(66)
 ( T-  Kevin Myers )
Won
Dividends : $2.90 $1.50
Can't seemingly find a winnable race so they're reverting to the hurdles now. That could be the turning point for the talented type.

2 Mesmerize   F: 2285X
  B(1) W(68)
 ( J-  Shaun Phelan )
Placed
Dividend : $2.10
Fresh up and faces a tough field here. Gets an easy run from the inside draw and it could lob into a nice position.
Include in Multis
8 Medini   F: 0X897
  B(6) W(66)
 ( J-  Buddy Lammas )
Form is average but the hurdles might switch it on. Chance based on that but this is a tricky field.
Longer Odds
6 Mandalay   F: F586X
  B(8) W(66)
 ( J-  Toni Moki )
 ( T-  Kevin Myers )
From a good jumping stable and it could add some value.

  B(5) W(66.5)
 ( T-  Kevin Myers )

Dividend : $1.30
Knocking on the door after consecutive second placings. Fought well to the line last start and anything close should see it going close.

5 Napoleon   F: 2705X
  B(1) W(65)
 ( J-  Shaun Fannin )
 ( T-  Kevin Myers )
A winner of only three races but there have been some good bets placed. Drawn well and it won't take long to find form again.

  B(3) W(68)

Include in Multis
6 Suffice To Say   F: 00316
  B(2) W(65)

Recent winner and that form could be good enough for this.

Main Danger
1 Max   F: 1156X
  B(2) W(72.5)
