Top Pick
12 Calling Us Home   F: 33
  B(10) W(55)
Placed
Dividend : $1.20
Has run two good placings against much stronger opposition than what it faces here. Way too short in the market but it should be winning.
Main Danger
5 Clooney   F: 7
  B(2) W(57)
 ( J-  Jason Laking )
Only a fair seventh on debut but it wasn't far away from the winner at Timaru. Nicely bred to show some early toe so consider.
Next Best
1 Lincoln Zephyr   F: 40557
  B(6) W(58.5)
 ( J-  Chris Johnson )
Has an experience edge which could count in this field. Chris Johnson being in the saddle won't hurt its chances either.
Include in Multis
8 Vouch   F: 05X64
  B(7) W(56.5)
 ( J-  Doni Prastiyou )
Improving run for fourth last time out and it could score at nice odds. Likely to firm in on the day as punters get cautious with the favourite.
Longer Odds
7 Smart Garden   F: 65X26
  B(2) W(56.5)
 ( J-  Terry Moseley )
Has produced some good efforts to date and it just needs to find a length to win at double-figure odds.

Remarks

All the money with the favourite

Top Pick
6 Ataahuadreamsrfree   F: 342X2
  B(14) W(56.5)
 ( J-  BB Hong )
Indicative Odds: $3.40
Had every chance to win last start but gets a better chance here. Nice type, tough draw but it should enjoy the apprentice claim.
Main Danger
2 Jiminy Cricket   F: 0X044
  B(2) W(58.5)
 ( J-  Terry Moseley )
Indicative Odds: $6.50
Should have delivered a placing this campaign but it gets a good chance to improve on its recent fourths. Drawn well with an experience rider in the saddle.
Next Best
7 Rita Aura   F: 94X45
  B(13) W(56.5)
 ( J-  Lee Callaway )
Indicative Odds: $6.50
Probably not as talented as its name sake but it could offer some value here. This stable often has success when coming south.
Include in Multis
13 Bellarosina   F: 7X05
  B(10) W(55)
 ( J-  Tanya Jonker )
Indicative Odds: $14.00
Hasn't had much experience compared to many of these but it gets in well at 53kg and it ran well enough to win last start.
Longer Odds
10 Cinto Bay   F: 00X6
  B(1) W(56.5)
 ( J-  Jason Laking )
Indicative Odds: $13.00
Much better showing last start and it has each-way claims in this.

Remarks

Another huge betting field with only a handful of runners quoted at single-figure odds

5 Vino Bella   F: 4X
  B(4) W(57)
 ( J-  Jason Laking )
Placed
Dividend : $1.50
Backed and beaten on debut up north but that form should translate well against this opposition. Stable is firing.
Main Danger
2 Miss Sweet Pee   F: 62
  B(7) W(57)
 ( J-  Chris Johnson )
Placed
Dividend : $1.30
Much better effort for second at Otaki last start after running sixth behind Aotea Lad on debut. Not easy here but it's a good chance.
Next Best
3 Our Rosette   F: 2
  B(2) W(57)
 ( J-  Andrew Calder )
Didn't face much on debut but did hit the line with good purpose. Drawn well and senior rider Andrew Calder in the saddle is a positive.
Include in Multis
4 Emma's Chance   F: 3
  B(3) W(57)
 ( T-  Pat Collins )
Third on debut and gets an apprentice claim in this. Might need to find a length or two but it has had only one start so it could improve.
Longer Odds
7 Take A Risk   F: 5
  B(1) W(57)
 ( J-  Terry Moseley )
Not too far behind them last start and it could add some value at odds.

Remarks

There should be some nice types to come out of this

Top Pick
6 Lake Chalice   F: X1175
  B(3) W(57.5)
 ( J-  Rohan Mudhoo )
Placed
Dividend : $1.70
Needs to lift on its last couple of efforts but it should find this slightly easier. Form prior was good and the 3kg claim makes it tough to beat.
Main Danger
3 Strowan   F: L1237
  B(5) W(58.5)
 ( J-  Doni Prastiyou )
Placed
Dividend : $1.70
Another which needs to rebound after a sub-par effort last start. More than capable of doing that and it should be right around the mark.
Next Best
7 Odisha   F: 7676X
  B(1) W(57.5)
 ( J-  Andrew Calder )
Inside draw is ideal and it could show some cheek fresh up. Former northerner so it brings in that solid form line.
Include in Multis
2 Flytime   F: 93433
  B(6) W(59)
 ( J-  Krishna Mudhoo )
Won
Dividends : $6.60 $2.30
Back-to-back placings coming into this and it gets some weight off its back. Has class and a win wouldn't surprise many here.
Longer Odds
1 Enzedjewel   F: 58X05
  B(9) W(59.5)
 ( J-  BB Hong )
Better effort when fifth last start and it's a knockout chance with the claimer in the saddle.

Remarks

Very even market with many winning chances

Strowan could go close

Top Pick
6 Pinup Coup   F: 34442
  B(9) W(56.5)
 ( J-  Chris Johnson )
Hasn't won for a little while but a win isn't far away. Just needs a good ride from Johnson and it could finish over the top of them.
Main Danger
8 Rockoneve   F: 51674
  B(2) W(55.5)
Big run for fourth last start and it's capable of producing a similar effort again. Odds are attractive but it has obvious winning claims.
Next Best
1 Final Say   F: 17X42
  B(7) W(60.5)
 ( J-  BB Hong )
Placed
Dividend : $2.20
Improved with the run for second at Kurow and it's another good ride for BB Hong with the 3kg claim. Tough to beat and the odds appeal.
Include in Multis
2 Forged   F: 43695
  B(3) W(59.5)
 ( J-  Krishna Mudhoo )
 ( T-  Mike McCann )
Gets a good draw and that could be key in a race like this. Can win and it would boost payouts nicely.
Longer Odds
7 Showpin   F: 03013
  B(5) W(56)
Won
Dividends : $7.40 $2.00
Nothing wrong with its form and if it gets a good ride, it's right in the mix at nice odds.

Two runners well-favoured and they're quality types

Top Pick
1 King Kane   F: 40246
  B(8) W(59.5)
Form doesn't indicate it but it's rarely far away from the finish. Gets a must-needed claimer in the saddle and it looks the best of a moderate field.
Main Danger
3 Abrahams   F: 87031
  B(4) W(58.5)
 ( J-  Chris Johnson )
 ( T-  Terri Rae )
Won
Dividends : $6.90 $2.20
Scored an overdue win last start and it might kick on with it now. Evenly drawn and should be in a top position to strike late.
Next Best
4 Attimo   F: 00361
  B(11) W(58)
 ( J-  Tanya Jonker )
 ( T-  Kenny Moore )
Another last start winner which ran some slick time at Reefton. Not always the best form guide for Riccarton but include on that performance alone.
Include in Multis
7 Perfidia   F: 27548
  B(12) W(56.5)
Slightly out of form but it won't take much to turn that around. Drawn wide but there should be plenty of chances to get cover in this.
Longer OddsThe 'Best Roughie'
5 Ride The Storm   F: 80317
  B(3) W(58)
 ( J-  Andrew Calder )
Did the job nicely two back and a return to that form takes it close. Goes into the mix at the odds.

Remarks

Another even betting field on paper. Punters will have no trouble finding value with most runners.

Top Pick
4 Anythingcouldhappn   F: X5111
  B(6) W(54)
 ( J-  Chris Johnson )
Placed
Dividend : $1.30
Tough to overlook its recent form. On a winning streak and it could be the next staying star to come from the south. Weight helps.
Main Danger
1 Kaharau   F: 51837
  B(5) W(60)
No doubting its ability but it does have to jump a significant weight of 58kg. Likely to get back and come into the race down the lengthy straight.
Next Best
6 Smoke House Bay   F: 51041
  B(8) W(54)
 ( J-  Tanya Jonker )
Scored nicely last start and with only 52kg on the back, it surely has to come into contention. Include for value.
Include in Multis
3 Shezatoucha   F: 04134
  B(2) W(54)
 ( J-  Terry Moseley )
Won
Dividends : $8.30 $2.30
Rarely runs a bad race and it wasn't too far away from them last start. Good win three back and it should go close again in an even contest.
Longer Odds
2 Five Kings   F: 92162
  B(7) W(54)
 ( J-  Rahul Beeharry )
Always possesses the ability to flash home at big odds. That could happen here.

9 Tee Cee Coup   F: 09X1
  B(3) W(55.5)

Showed its true ability last time out and it could go on with it now. In the right hands and punters are getting a serious price.
Main Danger
14 Hapi Ella   F: 56772
  B(10) W(54)
 ( J-  Lee Callaway )
Indicative Odds: $9.00
Possesses plenty of speed but isn't the biggest. Just needs some clear air and it could finish with a big burst. Well-related type.
Next Best
2 Acekingsuited   F: 38727
  B(4) W(58.5)
 ( J-  Jacob Lowry )
Indicative Odds: $7.50

Include in Multis
7 Saronic Miss   F: 4360X
  B(11) W(57)

Comes down south with a nice win under its belt last time out. There's some big opinions of this runner and it could be worth following.
Main Danger
7 The Precious One   F: X1252
  B(10) W(53)
 ( J-  Lee Callaway )
No doubt that it has the best exposed form. Gets in well off at the weights with 53kg and it just needs to live up to expectations.
Next Best
5 Kiwi Ida   F: 12115
  B(11) W(57)
Placed
Dividend : $1.80
Lets the race unfold and then comes with a big run. Will it be big enough to run some smart types down? History says possibly.
Include in Multis
1 Son Of Maher   F: 56674
  B(8) W(60)
 ( J-  Andrew Calder )
Group-performed runner which needs to regain that confidence. Big weight won't help but with a smart ride, it could steal this in the straight.
Longer Odds
3 El Bee Darci   F: 91137
  B(9) W(58)
Always capable of blowing them away at odds. Goes into the mix at big odds.

3 Red River Rock   F: 32335
