Top Pick
2 Smoke House Bay   F: 41622
  B(8) W(58.5)
 ( J-  Chris Johnson )
Placed
Dividend : $1.50
Has been running good races with back-to-back second placings. Chris Johnson rides and that's going to be a positive in the small field.
Main Danger
1 Lady Bealey   F: X5541
  B(9) W(59)
 ( J-  Rohan Mudhoo )
Did the job nicely last time out and having a claimer in the saddle is ideal. No reason why it shouldn't be winning again.
Next Best
3 Te Quiera   F: 27011
  B(5) W(58.5)
 ( J-  Corey Campbell )
Searching for its third consecutive win and that doesn't happen all that often. Likely to be well-backed once again.
Include in Multis
4 Letsbringiton   F: 18021
  B(1) W(58)
 ( J-  Robert Hannam )
Placed
Dividend : $2.40
Another recent winner which has the confidence sky high. Inside draw should be a positive in the first race of the day.
Longer Odds
5 Oligarch   F: 83350
  B(7) W(58)
 ( J-  Jacob Lowry )
 ( T-  Mark Harris )
Average last start but is capable of improving quickly.

Remarks

A few nice each-way types in this.

Top PickThe 'Day's Best'
5 Our Hail Mary   F: 11
  B(10) W(56.5)
Unbeaten from two starts and has looked impressive in doing so. Tricky draw but that doesn't always matter over this distance. Looks a nice type in the making.
Main Danger
4 Khimar War   F: X3062
  B(13) W(57.5)
 ( J-  Jacob Lowry )
Won
Dividends : $9.50 $2.90
Most of its form has come against some smart types. Drawn deep but it has good tactical speed and it could run in the money once again.
Next Best
1 Fire Show   F: 34457
  B(5) W(57.5)
 ( J-  Corey Campbell )
Placed
Dividend : $3.20
Showed good ability as a juvenile and it gets a chance to return to that form here. Can do that and offer good odds.
Include in Multis
2 Highly Unlikely   F: 31573
  B(7) W(57.5)
Rarely too far away from the winner and it drops down to 54.5kg. That helps and it wouldn't be a surprise to see it winning.
Longer Odds
7 Hombre   F: 32332
  B(6) W(56)
 ( J-  Chris Johnson )
Good odds on offer for this consistent gelding. Yet to win but yet to produce a bad effort all the same.

Remarks

Plenty of interest with the favourite.

Dividend : $2.90
Has been handy in all four runs to date and it has good natural pace. 52kg on the back and every chance to take this out.
Next Best
4 Diva Express   F: 643X2
  B(6) W(55)
 ( J-  Lee Callaway )
Went close when fresh up and it was always going to improve with the run. Has pace and it should be right around the mark again.

  B(5) W(55)
 ( J-  Terry Moseley )
Won
Dividends : $7.50 $3.10

  B(1) W(57)

Hasn't shown power yet but the inside draw helps so expect a better effort.

Main Danger
12 Superstatic   F: 41576
