    Place
    F: 45118   B(7)  W(60.5)
     ( J- Damien Oliver )
     ( T- Julius Sandhu )
    It had good betting support when running eighth last start. It wasn't a bad effort and its two wins prior were excellent.

    5 Ruru  
    F: X4415   B(10)  W(59.0)
     ( J- Damian Lane )
     ( T- Chris Waller )
    Yet to race on the track but it looked good winning two starts back at Sandown. A repeat of that performance takes it close.

    F: X3614   B(3)  W(59.0)
     ( J- Jordan Childs )
     ( T- Matt Cumani )

    4 Russians  
    F: 41   B(6)  W(57.0)
     ( J- Damien Oliver )
     ( T- James Cummings )
    Over the odds given the way it won last time out. Having Damien Oliver in the saddle helps and we'll take the odds available.

    F: X2103   B(5)  W(56.0)
     ( J- John Allen )
     ( T- Matthew Williams )

     ( J- Josh Richards )
     ( T- Ben & JD Hayes )
    Scored back-to-back wins before running second last time out. It could turn the tables with the claimer in the saddle.

    F: 24831   B(3)  W(60.5)
     ( J- Teodore Nugent )
     ( T- Maher/Eustace )
    It defeated a similar field by 1.5 lengths last start. Tough to overlook that form and it's paying value odds.

     ( J- Josh Richards )
     ( T- Maher/Eustace )
    A lovely type with a big future. A winner of three races already this preparation and the 2kg claim helps. Goes close with luck.

    Dividend : $2.50, $1.60
    Won
    F: X3211   B(13)  W(61.0)

    F: 52X41   B(3)  W(61.5)
     ( J- Tatum Bull )

    Better when fifth last time out and it placed at its only start on the track. Solid betting moves are a good sign.

    Won
    F: 1X438   B(1)  W(61.0)
     ( J- Josh Richards )

    5 Curly Burgin  
    F: 01417   B(8)  W(59.0)
     ( J- Logan McNeil )
     ( T- David Bourne )
    No chance to win last start after getting too far back. Drops in weight and if it jumps with them, it should finish close.
    Consider
    8 Translator  
    F: X0034   B(4)  W(58.5)
     ( J- Blaike McDougall )
     ( T- Nigel Blackiston )
    Wouldn't mind some moisture on the track and it's an even field and it could take advantage. Expect a solid effort.

     ( J- Teodore Nugent )
     ( T- Steve Richards )
    It could push forward and run them into the ground. Gets the inside draw, so finding the front won't be much of an issue.

    F: 33191   B(2)  W(58.0)
     ( J- Linda Meech )
     ( T- Anthony & Sam Freedman )
    Two wins from its last three starts. It typically needs things to go its way, but there is market confidence. Another well-drawn runner.

    F: 86X19   B(3)  W(53.0)
     ( J- Josh Richards )

    Didn't fire from the barriers last start so it could pay to forgive that effort. Carries 51kg and that is a light weight.

    F: X9600   B(7)  W(60.0)
