VALUE RUNNER: No5 SEETHING DRAKE
No7 SAINT DENIS
No6 PURE REBEL
SCRATCHED No4 MALIBU BOY
No8 WALDO WALDORF
VALUE RUNNER: No4 MALIBU BOY
No3 COOL ONE has been good at the trials coming into a debut run here. She gets a senior on rather than the apprentice for the debut and has a chance.
No7 RAINOVER MANHATTAN has been good in two career starts and gets a good claim here for Panya and has her chance.
No9 WIN THE LOTTERY (BEST ROUGHIE) was good in the first NSW start and found the line well. No shock to see Murray rush across from the gate here.
No8 SCHIFTY THINKER comes out of a good race last start and the claim for JVO and barrier 1 help here.
VALUE RUNNER: No9 WIN THE LOTTERY
No1 VANELL (BEST BET) comes into this with less convictions against him than some of his opposition today. Loved the first-up run where he led them up and was only run down late, should improve a lot fitness wise and comes out of good races last time in.
No2 THAI BOXING has let us down in the past few starts, but drops from midweek grade to this.
No6 ABATHA found the line well last start and the step to 1600m suits.
No9 JAGGER was solid fresh and looks next best here.
VALUE RUNNER: No2 THAI BOXING
No2 PARIS FOR ME
No1 OAKFIELD GENERAL
No3 OUR VENTURA
No4 SEE THE SHOW
VALUE RUNNER: No3 OUR VENTURA
No7 MAHJONG ROSE (NEXT BEST BET) gets blinkers on for the debut and looks to be a seriously fast horse. P King will drive forward from gate 3 here and give them something to chase down. But off the trials she may be too nippy.
No5 CASH IN TRANSIT will go forward from the gate here and has been well educated at the trials.
SCRATCHED No1 AYETEEM has been doing a good job at the trials and looks to be a nice horse.
No3 RISALDAR trialing well coming into a debut run and should get a soft run behind them.
VALUE RUNNER: No1 AYETEEM
No3 REACH FOR HEAVEN gets blinkers off for a fresh run and has been trialing well coming into this. He has the best form here and should be winning.
No4 CLIVEDEN just missed last start after a good win fresh, this looks to be a winnable here.
No7 TRUST ME has been going very well as of late and the trial between runs was quite good.
SCRATCHED No10 THORN IN MY SIDE gets a good claim for JVO here and the step up to 1200m suits better than 900m.
VALUE RUNNER: No7 TRUST ME
No8 ULTIMATE FANTASTY
SCRATCHED No10 CROWN MOSS
SCRATCHED No4 MOUNT OMEI
VALUE RUNNER: No10 CROWN MOSS
