Top Pick
3 Our Rosette   F:
 ( J-  )
Placed
Dividend : $1.10
Three placings from five starts to date and it won't take much longer to break maiden grades. Has been heavily backed to win.
Main Danger
 ( J-  )

Early money suggests it could make a winning debut. Doesn't have to beat much here and punters are getting good odds.
Next Best

Showed enough in limited runs last campaign. Improved nicely when fourth last time out and it could go well in this.
Include in Multis
6 Hot Tap   F:
 ( J-  )
Needs to lift based on what we saw last time in work. Better for the experience and it could offer some value.

 ( J-  )
Did the job nicely last time out and that form should carry through to this. Inside draw is ideal so put on top here.
Main Danger

Suited to this race after running second in consecutive starts. Has won this campaign and it deserves to be right in the mix.

Three wins already this campaign and although given a big weight in this, it could carry it to victory. Nice odds on offer.

2 Kiwi Ida   F:
 ( J-  )
Won
Dividends : $5.00 $2.20
Owns plenty of ability and although drawn wide, it should get back and storm home late. Knows how to win against this level of opposition.
Main Danger
1 Elfee   F:
 ( J-  )
Placed
Dividend : $3.20
Didn't fire last time out and although drawn wide, it has the ability to fire in this grade. Has been backed throughout the week.
Next Best
9 Beneficial   F:
 ( J-  )
Poor run to end last campaign but it ran well for third when fresh up. 54kg brings it right into contention.
Include in Multis
 ( J-  )
No good last start but that came in a tough race. Easier opposition here and if there's pace up front, it will be finishing off nicely.
Longer Odds
7 Zabay   F:

Getting close with two placings and it could add some value.

Showed why it's highly regarded when winning last time out. Could kick on with it now.
Main Danger
2 Johnny Jones   F:

Top Pick
8 Orepuki Lad   F:
 ( J-  )
Placed
Dividend : $1.60
Beaten last start but gets 53.5kg on the back here and the inside draw. That makes it awfully tough to beat and it has been well-backed to date.
Main Danger
1 Tommy Tucker   F:
 ( J-  )
60kg on the back won't help its chances but it has been improved with recent racing. Nice odds on offer so include here.
Next Best
3 Shakti   F:
 ( J-  )
In hot form after winning last time out. Hasn't run a bad race for some time now and punters are getting good odds.
Include in Multis
9 Shezatoucha   F:
 ( J-  )
Impressive winner four back and it has placed twice since. 53kg helps here and it could land on the speed and kick hard.
Longer Odds
2 The Gordonian   F:
 ( J-  )
More than capable of winning a race like this.

Remarks

A few runners have been specked in the feature race
