      B(6) W(60)

      B(5) W(57)
     ( J-  Sanu Toolooa )

    Top Pick
    4 Pop 'n' Rock   F: 32766
      B(5) W(56.5)
     ( J-  Kylie Williams )
    Small field helps its chances and we could see a turnaround in form. Likely to sit just off the speed and come with a good run.
    Main Danger
    1 Pinup Coup   F: 46333
      B(2) W(59)
    Placed
    Dividend : $1.50
    Owns the most talent in this race but continues to find a couple better than it. Claim helps and punters are confident of a good run.
    Next Best
    3 Red River Rock   F: 04130
      B(1) W(56.5)
     ( J-  Kozzi Asano )
    Gets back in the run, which can be tricky in these small fields. Has the talent to win and we wouldn't be surprised if it did.
    Longer Odds
    5 Shock And Awe   F: X6180
      B(3) W(54)
    More than capable after dropping to 53kg in the weights.

    Small field but it could turn into a very good race

      B(10) W(56)
    Won
    Dividends : $2.10 $1.30
    Punters have to take short odds but that was a nice performance last start. Looks set to break maiden grades soon and it could come here.
    Main Danger
    1 Five Princes   F: 95223
      B(7) W(58.5)
     ( J-  Chris Johnson )
    Had every chance to win last start but couldn't run down the winner. It will break maiden grades soon and the odds are generous.
    Next Best
    12 Vivace Lady   F: 78220
      B(2) W(56)
    Needs to rebound after showing very little last time out. Form prior was good, which included back-to-back placings. Chance.
    Include in Multis

      B(8) W(56.5)
     ( J-  Corey Campbell )

    Longer Odds
    3 Mr Fahrenheit   F: 44557
      B(9) W(58.5)

     ( J-  Chris Johnson )
    Placed
    Dividend : $1.50
    Went close last start and it looks a good chance of finally breaking through. A good ride from Johnson should get it home.
    Main Danger
    6 Keep Quiet   F: 6X
      B(5) W(58)
     ( J-  Kozzi Asano )
    Went fairly on debut before being immediately spelled. Should come back a stronger type and there is specking in the market.

      B(13) W(56.5)
     ( J-  Terry Moseley )
    Won
    Dividends : $6.60 $2.20
    Improving effort when third last start. Starting to put it all together now and it only needs luck from the wide draw.
    Include in Multis
    9 Recommended Flight   F: 40534
      B(14) W(56.5)
     ( J-  Samantha Wynne )
    Always around the mark and it's more than capable of winning this race. Shouldn't be left out.
    Longer Odds
    4 Mr Tool   F: 48X47
      B(9) W(58.5)
     ( J-  Sanu Toolooa )
    Gets a claim and that will help. Worth adding at the price.

      B(10) W(59)
     ( J-  Brett Murray )
    Placed
    Dividend : $1.70
    Coming off a win and that form could continue. Drawn a touch wide but it looks set to go well again. Odds are fair given its form.
    Main Danger
    7 Sure Is   F: 03002
      B(6) W(55)
    Not the most consistent type but it's coming off a nice effort to run second. Nicely weighted and it looks well-placed to score.

    6 Baby Menaka   F: 043X5
      B(4) W(55.5)
     ( J-  Corey Campbell )
    Won
    Dividends : $5.30 $2.00
    Did enough fresh up to be considered as a winning chance. Drops down in weight and it's another type that could go to the next level.
    Include in Multis
    5 Run Forrest Run   F: 07726
      B(9) W(56)
     ( J-  Rahul Beeharry )
    Can run on its day. Valuable 3kg comes off its back and that could be all it needs to win. Worth including.
    Longer Odds
    3 Jack Be Quick   F: 55310
      B(8) W(58)
     ( J-  Chris Johnson )
    Was quick two starts back, so consider on that effort.

    2 Charlie Awesome   F: 19064
      B(6) W(58.5)
     ( J-  Kozzi Asano )
    Form has been a touch inconsistent but the ability is there. Has a claimer riding and everything helps. Nice chance.

      B(2) W(60)
     ( J-  Sanu Toolooa )

    Dividend : $1.80
    Three consecutive placings coming into this race. Another with a claimer in the saddle and it deserves a winning turn.
    Next Best
    3 Highly Unlikely   F: 02339
      B(7) W(58)
    Looking to bounce back after battling last start. Form prior was good and we're expecting it to be right in the thick of the finish.

    Looked handy when first starting off. Form has tapered off a touch of late, but it gets all favours off the inside draw.
