Next Best
8 Rosie Marie   F: 7X823
 ( J-  Terry Moseley )

Top PickThe 'Day's Best'
5 Swiss Eire   F: 00213
Pitman apprentice would have had choice of rides. This Rogerson cast-off does look better bet
Main Danger
4 Zakynthos   F: 47823
 ( J-  Chris Johnson )
Still not the sharpest of beginners. Lot hinges on Johnson, who fills gap left by apprentice.
Next Best
3 Villeret   F: 258X3
 ( J-  Gee Saejorhor )
Likes to run close to pace - surprised he's only had one run at the carnival.
Include in Multis
2 Nopele   F: 25811
 ( J-  Kate Cowan )
Going for third win for the Clotworthy road show. Draw against him
Longer Odds
6 Promising   F: 37226
Failed to threaten Kumara. Race weary? Down a grade today

Remarks

Stipe Comment: LA ROCHETTA - Improved quickly onto the heels of HAPI ELLA passing the 75 metres and went to the line without being fully tested by its rider

Top Pick
2 Timy Tyler   F: 08413
Very sound after 90 starts. Slower ground come at the right time. Pitman apprentice on again
Main Danger
7 Katiem Marie   F: 39613
 ( T-  Kevin Myers )
Dam was terrific winter mare but she prefers it lot drier. Still she's racing with greater confidence.
Next Best
5 Pamir   F: 21415
 ( J-  Rohan Mudhoo )
 ( T-  John Luxton )
Carnival newcomer. Obviously been set for this race.
Include in Multis
4 Yamato Nadeshiko   F: 74501
 ( J-  Tanya Jonker )
Freegoer who will take some heading with soft lead. Jock has produced some stunning rides at the carnival
Longer Odds
6 Florence Ivy   F: 86025
 ( J-  Kate Cowan )
Arguably the most disappointing of the Clotworthy clan, though was only length away from winning the Kumara Nuggets

Remarks

Stipe Comment: KATIEM MARIE - Slow to begin. Held up rounding the final bend making contact with other runner only gaining clear running room inside the final 200 metres.

1 Elfee   F: 41517
 ( J-  Chris Johnson )
Been lapping up the sunshine waiting for this day. This game mare should come through for the Pitmans
Main Danger
2 Flying Sardine   F: 56944
 ( J-  Rohan Mudhoo )
Ground made to measure today and the 3kgclaim promises to help turn up heat on likely favourite
Next Best
5 Residential   F: 35541
 ( J-  Gosen Jogoo )
Like Elfee, this race has been earmarked for her. By Pins she has rarely tackled anything worse than a dead rated track, however

Not old self and racing in the shadow of Elfee but it's been quite since she carried 54kgs
