      B(3) W(55)
    Placed

      B(1) W(58.5)
     ( J-  Sam Weatherley )
    Won
    Dividends : $5.90 $3.10
    Doesn't need to improve much to beat this field. Gets every chance off the inside draw and it could ride the speed.

    5 Piping Hot   F: 5X544
      B(2) W(58.5)
     ( J-  Opie Bosson )

      B(7) W(58.5)
     ( J-  Andrew Calder )

      B(5) W(58.5)
     ( J-  Opie Bosson )
    Won
    Dividends : $1.70 $1.20
    Looks set for a winning run after four consecutive placings. Has more upside than most in this field and the odds should reflect that.
    Main Danger
    7 Winklebelle   F: 5X720
      B(1) W(56)
     ( T-  Ben Foote )
    Didn't fire last start but the small field is going to help its chances. Gets the inside draw and value odds are on offer.
    Next Best
    3 Apellido   F: X8350
      B(7) W(58.5)
    Has been running against some tidy fields. Good enough to turn around a poor run last start and score at each-way odds.
    Include in Multis
    4 Patsys Lass   F: X7941
      B(4) W(57.5)
     ( J-  Rowena Smyth )
    Placed
    Dividend : $1.80
    Last-start winner which could remain in that form. The confidence is up now and it has been steady in the betting.
    Longer Odds
    5 Motuman   F: 007X5
      B(3) W(57.5)
     ( J-  Darren Danis )
    Needed the run last start so consider at odds.

     ( J-  Opie Bosson )
    Won
    Dividends : $3.20 $1.60
    Carries the big weight but is in winning form. More than capable of stringing wins together, especially staying in this grade.
    Main Danger
    4 Rhaegar   F: X4705
      B(4) W(57)
    Should find this level of racing right up its alley. Capable type that only needs some luck in running to go close.
    Next Best
    6 Savette   F: 30654
      B(2) W(56.5)
     ( J-  Chris Dell )
    Overdue a winning turn. Has been running well enough to win of late and it only needs to find a half-length. Chance.
    Include in Multis
    2 Roll The Gold   F: 5X363
      B(3) W(58)
    Good effort last time out and it could build on that. Small field should help its chances.

      B(1) W(56.5)
     ( J-  Ryan Elliot )

      B(1) W(58.5)
    Placed
    Dividend : $1.30
    Needs to win a race soon but continues to run competitive races. Won't need to do any work from the draw and it should go close.

    6 Caribbean Rose   F: 32X13
      B(4) W(57.5)
     ( J-  Opie Bosson )
    The pace of the race didn't suit last start but it still battled on nicely. Has plenty of ability and is a live chance.

    2 Le Castile   F: 58X44
      B(3) W(54)
     ( J-  Craig Grylls )
    Short odds expected and it should be beating this three-horse field. Has good sprinting form and is overdue a win.
    Main Danger
    3 Pasabahce   F: X0037
      B(2) W(54)
    Gets in nicely on the weights and it could track the speed and slingshot them late. Chance.

    2 Caught The Eye   F: 329X5
      B(9) W(58.5)
     ( T-  Scott Wenn )

    11 Sesto   F: 9
      B(8) W(55)
     ( J-  Craig Grylls )

    6 Mersey Beat   F: 85
