BEST BET: Race 6 No 9 PORTATORIO
Drawn perfectly and looks well placed here today to get the victory he deserves since resuming from a spell. Started favorite but couldn’t reel in the leader at Port Macquarie last start beaten by half a length. Can atone for that narrow defeat here today.

No1 RAGGED RASCAL
