    The 'Best Each Way'
    1 Danny Green   F: X4022
      B(1) W(58.5)
     ( J-  Chris Johnson )
    Deserves to break through soon after going close at its last two starts. Doesn't need to improve to beat this field so keep it safe.
    Main Danger
    3 Pondering   F: X0442
      B(2) W(58.5)
     ( J-  Terry Moseley )
     ( T-  Kevin Myers )
    Put the writing on the wall when second last time out. Heading in the right direction and we're expecting another tidy effort.

      B(9) W(58.5)
     ( J-  Sarah Macnab )
    Placed
    Dividend : $1.90
    Needs a bit of luck from the draw but has time to find cover. Gets a valuable 2kg off its back and every little bit helps at this level.

      B(7) W(58.5)
     ( T-  Kevin Myers )
    Placed
    Dividend : $2.30
    Sparingly-raced type that did enough fresh up. Could offer punters with some value in what should be a close run race.
    Longer Odds

      B(8) W(56.5)
     ( J-  Sanu Toolooa )

    Could run a big race at big odds.

    Top Pick
    4 Highly Unlikely   F: 08202
      B(8) W(55)
    Placed
    Dividend : $1.60
    Has only one win from 21 starts but that could be doubled here. Meets an even field and a confident jockey takes the ride. Just needs a good ride from out wide.
    Main Danger
    6 Thunder Bay   F: 80X61
      B(2) W(54)
    Hit top gear when scoring nicely last start. Rises in grade but stays down in the weights at 52kg. That brings it right into contention.

      B(6) W(56)

    Won
    Dividends : $3.00 $1.20
    Has been the victim of some fairly average rides of late. Gets too far back in the run and perhaps being positive would help. Chance if that happens.
    Longer Odds
    10 Our Boy Baz   F: 75604
      B(3) W(54)
     ( J-  Kin Kwo )
     ( T-  K & A Tyler )
    51kg on the back and this race is there for the taking.

    6 Shanlane   F: X00X1
      B(3) W(58.5)
     ( T-  Kevin Myers )
    Scored nicely last week and that's going to bode well for this race. Every chance of continuing its form against this field.
    Main Danger
    8 Where's The Gold   F: 7580X
      B(1) W(55)
    Has been taking on some tough opposition and this is a solid drop in class. Gets the inside draw, good rider and a nice weight.

      B(4) W(55)
     ( J-  Kin Kwo )
    Placed
    Dividend : $2.00
    Needed a couple of runs to warm up. Much better its last couple and it gets a much-needed 3kg off its back. Chance on that.

    4 Firmament   F: 0X
      B(2) W(56.5)
    Won
    Dividends : $7.60 $3.30

      B(6) W(58.5)

    3 Promising   F: 62472
      B(8) W(57.5)
     ( J-  Kin Kwo )
     ( T-  K & A Tyler )
    Two second placings from its last four starts. Looked good last time out and it gets 3kg coming off its back here. Should go close with some luck in running.
    Main Danger
    1 Bruzo   F: 0X595
      B(4) W(59)
     ( J-  Sarah Macnab )
    Needs a confidence boost but that could come here. Wasn't too far behind them last start and the claim helps.
    Next Best
    4 Wynmoore   F: 0X034
      B(7) W(56.5)
     ( J-  Akshay Balloo )
     ( T-  Kenny Moore )
    Much better efforts recently after showing nothing either side of a spell. Looks ready to win and it's another strong win chance.
    Include in Multis
    6 Starmaker   F: X9029
      B(1) W(55)
     ( J-  Terry Moseley )
    Needs to forget about its most recent effort. Second placing prior was better and there is plenty of money placed on here. Chance.
    Longer Odds
    2 Way Above   F: 07888
      B(2) W(58)
     ( T-  Kevin Myers )
    Could improve with recent racing under the belt.

     ( J-  Kylie Williams )
    Won
    Dividends : $5.90 $2.10
    A touch disappointing last time out but form prior was good. That included two wins from three starts and it runs at value odds.
    Main Danger
    1 Meara Mary   F: 11871
      B(4) W(59)
    Defied them last start and that's a good form guide coming into this. Gets a 2kg claimer in the saddle and most of the money has come for it.
    Next Best
    5 Solomon   F: X5245
      B(5) W(56.5)
     ( J-  Jason Laking )
    Yet to win from four starts this time in but it has been close enough. Certainly good enough to take this opposition.

    7 Touch The Sky   F: 46010

    9 Our Rosette   F: 60032
      B(3) W(55)
    Should have won by now but gets a good chance to break through here. Narrowly beaten as the fav last start and the odds are shorter here. Should be tough to beat.
    Main Danger
    16 Shanlane   F:
      B(16)
     ( J-  )
    Comes into this after scoring nicely last Sunday. Turned around some fairly average form in doing so. Stick with it.

    Top Pick
    3 Swiss Eire   F: 310X3

    Handy effort to run third last time out. Usually finds form quickly and it has a good claimer in the saddle. Best-backed to win.

    8 Running Man   F: 0X575
      B(4) W(56)
