R2 – 1.40pm. Suez Ballarat 3YO Maiden Plate – 1100m.

May 31 then raced greenly when solid 3.4-length fifth Moonee Valley Good4 as $4.60 chance June 17. Three horses from that race have won since and she faces much easier grade here. The one to beat.

Placed at two of three first-up runs and should sprint well fresh again.

No6 REALLY SURE

 

VALUE RUNNER: No6 REALLY SURE

R5 – 3.20pm. Porter Plant BM64 Handicap – 1400m.
