    F: 37   B(1)  W(56.5)
     ( J- Michael McNab )
     ( T- M & M Pitman )
    But for slow starts would have cleared maidens by now. Note Pitman's have put top jock Michael McNab on and from inside gate, we think it wins

     ( J- Chris Carmine )

    Place
    F: 87241   B(2)  W(58.5)
     ( J- Michael McNab )
     ( T- M & M Pitman )
    This one was slow from wide draw here two weeks ago but finished strongly and won comfortably. Drawn 2 this time and well placed with McNab on board to go back to back
    Main Danger

    F: 36793   B(4)  W(57.5)
     ( J- Lee Callaway )
     ( T- Amanda Higgins )

     ( J- Kylie Williams )
     ( T- M & M Pitman )
    Showed signs of improved form two back but disappointed when switched back to the turf last start. Pitman's runner that has to be rated with rails draw
    Consider

     ( J- Megan Taylor )
     ( T- Meg Cunneen )

     ( J- Diego Montes de Oca )
     ( T- M & M Pitman )
    Another Pitman runner that was tried against best 3yo's last campaign. Suggests it has a good reputation and will have improved from first run back

     ( J- Lisa Allpress )
     ( T- Fraser Auret )
    Auret runner down from the north that was only just caught last time at Otaki. That would appear to be better form than most here and with good draw and Lisa on the reins, looks likely to be the third 'toppie' to win from 3 races

    Place
    F: 44110   B(5)  W(54.0)
     ( J- Lisa Allpress )
     ( T- Karen Fursdon )
    After two impressive wins on the synthetic over 1200m, disappointed last time over 1400m when slow away and never in the race. too good to discount and with Lisa Allpress taking the reins, we expect to see it return to the winners circle
    Main Danger

    Won
    F: 3210X   B(1)  W(62.0)
     ( J- Michael McNab )
     ( T- Paul Harris )
    Ex Aussie galloper that was good enough to win 6 in Hong Kong. Last race there a year ago but has trialed well for resumption and Paul Harris has big targets this campaign

    F: 43305   B(7)  W(54.0)
     ( J- Kylie Williams )
     ( T- Steve Tyler )
    Quality galloper that can't be underestimated. Over raced on first run on synthetic here two weeks ago and will be a better proposition this time

     ( J- Michael McNab )
     ( T- M & M Pitman )
    Debuted in a strong maiden at Timaru last month and was finishing nicely when checked. Pitman/McNab combination again and big chance to add to what looks like a good day for them

    F: 0340X   B(10)  W(56.5)
     ( J- Lisa Allpress )
     ( T- L & R Didham )

     ( J- Lee Callaway )
     ( T- Paul Harris )

    Had to be impressed with debut run on synthetic, Chris Johnson bringing it home wide out. Can back up in what looks like an easier field

     ( J- Michael McNab )
