No12 LILYMORN Has been most consistent but the alley (13) is a setback.
VALUE RUNNER: No12 LILYMORN
No2 RAGAZZO DEL CORSA (BEST BET) Gets his chance to win again. He posted a smart win here carrying 59.5kg two starts ago and kept on chasing last start when fourth over 1200m at Sandown on February 22. Noel Callow is the new rider and he is weighted on 60.5kg. Unbeaten at this track.

No3 NIC NAC Bounced back into top form with a stylish 3 ¼ length win.
No4 MUCCINO Loves this track but his first-up record is a bit soft.
VALUE RUNNER: No3 NIC NAC
NO2 NEW GRADUATE Steamed home to post two outer country wins her last campaign. Had little luck first-up when six deep on the corner and finished 10th at Bendigo against her own sex on February 28. Is a Darren Weir-trained mare.
No3 INTERCHANGE EMILY She won her maiden against her own sex in good style at Sale before running a solid third against in a higher grade over 1214m at Moe last time on February 19. Has appeal.
No1 STAR IMPULSE She has been a consistent mare and pay to forgive her last start here when running eighth over 1200m against her own sex last week. She is on the quick back up but is worth consideration.
No6 SAVVY BELLE She was strong in betting before running a steady fourth over 1400m at Sale on February 5. She has been freshened up for this and top jockey Luke Nolen replaces an apprentice.
VALUE RUNNER: No1 STAR IMPULSE
No8 TRINITY HILL She posted a smart win over 1411m at Sale last start on February 14. Goes up in weight to 58.5kg an increase of 2kg but she is flying at the moment and is a good chance.

No1 HOKKAIDO Will carry top-weight on 61kg but has the experienced Steve Arnold to ride. Ran a solid fourth over 1400m at Sandown last week and is race hardened. Was specked from $14 into $10.
No12 YACHT CLUB (BEST ROUGHIE) She is unbeaten at her two country starts. She resumes here off a smart trial where she ran second over 1100m at Echuca on February 14. Has only 55kg.
VALUE RUNNER: No11 YACHT CLUB
No6 ROSTI (NEXT BEST BET) Is another talented son of champion stallion Snitzel. He won brilliantly at his debut before finishing a good third over 1400m at Sandown at his last start on February 15. Thomas Sadler replaces Damien Oliver who is not riding at this meeting and he drops a half kilo to 59kg here. One of the better bets.
No7 POSITIVE CARRY Was elevated into top class off two smart efforts in the country. Resumes here and makes appeal.
No3 LE BOSS He finally broke through for a win. Has been consistent and respect.
No8 TRE DIECI Has top hoop Steve Arnold to ride and better on a dry track here.
VALUE RUNNER: No7 POSITIVE CARRY
