    7 Claddagh   F: 23144
      B(2) W(67)
     ( J-  Ryan Elliot )
    Won
    Dividends : $1.60 $1.10
    Scored well three back and has run two good races against tough opposition since. Has been set at a low price by bookmakers so it loses value.
    Main Danger
    5 Mamba   F: 62X24
      B(8) W(67.5)
    Placed
    Dividend : $1.30
    Was well-supported last start when battling on well for fourth. Form prior to that was good and the only worry is its lack of winning form.
    Next Best
    9 Top Actress   F: 00490
      B(4) W(65)
    Late scratched last time out. Form appears average but it has a nice turn-of-foot and running at highweight level could help.

      B(1) W(58.5)

      B(12) W(58.5)
    Nothing wrong with its form heading into this. Could give Chris Dell an overdue win.

      B(10) W(57.5)
     ( J-  Cameron Lammas )

      B(11) W(59)
     ( J-  Craig Grylls )
    Used to race against some better than average thoroughbreds. Showed some form last time out and it's long over another win.
    Next Best
    10 Goboniego   F: 5116X

      B(2) W(59)
