Top Pick
5 Chanceux   F: 4X
  B(7) W(56.5)
 ( J-  Dylan Turner )
Wasn't the worst run for fourth on debut before being spelled immediately. Returns here and it has been well backed.
Main Danger
1 Bruzo   F: 029
  B(8) W(58)
 ( J-  Lisa Allpress )
Won
Dividends : $2.40 $1.20
Didn't show much last start but it looked good when running second two back. Big chance on that performance and it could run as the favourite.
Next Best
4 My Hugo   F: 79
  B(2) W(58)
 ( J-  Rosie Myers )
 ( T-  Kevin Myers )
Only moderate in two starts to date but it doesn't have to beat much here. Betting suggests punters should expect improvement.
Include in Multis
7 Pop Diva   F: 0500X
  B(1) W(56.5)
 ( J-  Chris Johnson )
Placed
Dividend : $2.30
Had its chances to impress last campaign. Didn't do that but it should get a nice run and run close to the pace.
Longer Odds
  B(3) W(56)
 ( J-  Ryan Elliot )
Jockey is riding well and that's a positive.

Remarks

Not much covering this lot

Top Pick
5 Island Bay   F: 71653
  B(7) W(54.5)
 ( J-  Ryan Elliot )
Has been around the mark this campaign, scoring a win four back. Went well last start and the light weight is ideal.
Main Danger
6 Pipiana   F: X9220
  B(1) W(54)
 ( J-  Lisa Allpress )
Showed little last start but its form prior was much better. Consecutive second placings and this could be its race to win.
Next Best
2 Pippi Rea   F: 09339
  B(2) W(58.5)
Won
Dividends : $5.00 $2.60
Has competed against better fields than this and coped well. Rider is in good form and it will likely go forward and kick strongly.
Include in Multis
1 Saber   F: 383X9
  B(6) W(59.5)
Gets a 3kg claimer in the saddle which is needed. Out of form but this is the race where it could get back into winning action.

Top Pick
2 Whale Song   F: 4223
  B(8) W(58)
Three placings from four starts and it's only a matter of time before it breaks through. 3kg claim and every chance to take this out.
Main Danger
3 Duke Of Plumpton   F: 25
  B(12) W(58)
 ( J-  Rosie Myers )
 ( T-  Kevin Myers )
Won
Dividends : $3.90 $1.60
Nice effort for second on debut and it was there abouts last start. Tricky draw but they might be coming wide.
Next Best
1 Albaron   F: 9X273
  B(13) W(58.5)
 ( J-  Sarah MacNab )
 ( T-  Kevin Myers )
Twice-placed already this preparation. Has plenty of upside and it will just need a solid ride from out wide to take this out. Nice odds.
Include in Multis
7 Cailin   F: 03564
  B(9) W(56.5)
 ( J-  Lisa Allpress )
Always around the mark and it just needs to find a length to win. Lisa Allpress rides and that experience can count for something.
Longer Odds
6 Wanderin Over   F: 02X9
  B(11) W(56.5)
 ( J-  Kin Kwo )
One good performance from three starts but a similar effort would see it run close.

Remarks

Form out of this race should stack up nicely

Whale Song should hit the notes

  B(12) W(56)
 ( J-  Lisa Allpress )
Won
Dividends : $6.30 $2.30
Former northern runner which should be due to show its best form. Three-times placed this preparation and the odds on offer are generous.
Main Danger
4 Hombre   F: 32042
  B(8) W(58)
 ( J-  Robert Hannam )
Ran home nicely for second last start and it will build on that effort. Overdue a winning turn and that could come here.
Next Best
6 Orleans Rock   F:
  B(3) W(58)
 ( J-  Sarah MacNab )
 ( T-  Kevin Myers )
There's good support on debut after winning a trial over 1200m. That suggests it could be a stayer in the making but include here.

Top Pick
4 The Growler   F: 28532
  B(4) W(59)
 ( J-  BB Hong )
Knocking on the door after placing at its last two. Gets a 3kg claimer in the saddle and it looms as a strong winning chance.
Main Danger
13 Frosted   F: 16822
  B(13) W(56)
Going to need a good ride from deep but it will appreciate the weight after running second in consecutive starts. Right in this.
Next Best
9 Torre Del Greco   F: 45722
  B(10) W(57.5)
 ( J-  Sarah MacNab )
 ( T-  Kevin Myers )
Won
Dividends : $6.00 $2.10
Looks ready to score an elusive win after consecutive placings. Another Myers runner and it will likely get back and flash home late.
Include in Multis
1 Fly To The Sky   F: 84624
  B(11) W(60)
 ( J-  Terry Moseley )
Placed
Dividend : $3.30
Drawn 15 but it has the class to put this field away. Big weight but it's paying good enough odds to include in this.
Longer Odds
12 Major Ish Choux   F: 61028
  B(1) W(56.5)
 ( J-  Chris Johnson )
Has won and placed this campaign. A return to that form takes it close.

Top PickThe 'Day's Best'
7 Saignon   F: 72428
  B(2) W(56.5)
 ( J-  Ryan Elliot )
Slightly out of form but those efforts have come against tough opposition. It would put a couple of lengths on this field at its best.
Main Danger
1 Hoofbeat   F: 14976
  B(4) W(60)
Won
Dividends : $5.70 $2.20
Gets some weight off its back to help with some moderate recent runs. Drawn well and it should be able to get back into the thick of the action.
Next Best
3 Hee's Our Secret   F: 16030
  B(3) W(58)
 ( J-  Dylan Turner )
Another which needs to turn around some poor form. Gets every chance to do that here and the four-time winner has ability.
Include in Multis
5 Jin Lu   F: 27601
  B(1) W(57.5)
 ( J-  Terry Moseley )
Placed
Dividend : $2.30
Owns winning form after scoring last start and it could easily make it two on the bounce. Inside draw is ideal.
Longer Odds
12 Zayzay   F: 05366
  B(5) W(54)
 ( J-  Rosie Myers )
Only needs to improve slightly to win at the light weight.

Top Pick
9 Hey Happy   F: 244
  B(9) W(58)
 ( J-  Rosie Myers )
 ( T-  Kevin Myers )
Three starts for three solid performances. Most of the early money has come its way and the Myers connection could strike.
Main Danger
3 King Of The Dance   F: X7802
  B(4) W(58.5)
Much better run last time out when second. Has always shown some promise to exit maiden grades and the claim helps.
Next Best
12 Fine And Dandee   F: 46424
  B(12) W(56.5)
 ( J-  Lee Callaway )
 ( T-  Nicky Lloyd )
Hasn't been too far away this season and it should be right around the mark.
Include in Multis
2 Grant   F: 45728
  B(7) W(58.5)
 ( J-  Chris Johnson )
Not the most exciting horse, or name for that matter, but it's a chance here. Has gone close in the past and this isn't a strong maiden.
Longer OddsThe 'Best Roughie'
4 Princeville   F: X0X93
  B(5) W(58.5)
 ( J-  Sarah MacNab )
 ( T-  Kevin Myers )
Nothing wrong with its placing last time out. Goes into the mix because of that.

  B(4) W(59.5)
 ( J-  Chris Johnson )
Won
Dividends : $2.90 $2.00
Former northerner which is seeking a new lease on life. Not in the best form but this is the ideal race to recapture it.
Main Danger
6 Smoke House Bay   F: 22275
  B(3) W(54)
Tends to get back and run on nicely. This race could be dictated by the tempo but with 53kg on its back, it's right in the mix.

  B(7) W(55)
 ( J-  Sarah MacNab )

Include in Multis
4 Chic   F: 43985
  B(5) W(55.5)
 ( T-  Kevin Myers )
Just needs some confidence to return. Battling efforts of late but it shouldn't be discounted and bookies are keeping it safe.
Longer Odds
3 Koxinga   F: 65560
  B(1) W(57.5)
