The Saturday preview can be seen here
Race 1 at Matamata looks an open race but Rusalka looks like she will get the right run and Sunburst drops back in class and struck doing that last time.
The speed map shows an even tempo with Sagunto likely to hunt out wide to lead with Valetti trailing. An even tempo likely suiting all runners.
Confidence: 1/5 in an open race.
9.Rusalka took a few goes to win two starts back at Te Rapa but showed it was no fluke with a very good third behind the smart Les Crayeres last start rating an FR 100. She comes in here on a nice weight with 3kgs off and maps to get a winning run. Nice eachway chance. RP $5, $6 FF
6.Sunburst – her last win was at Tauranga over this distance when dropping back from a stronger R72 race. She drops back from the very strong Douro Cup field to this and with a decent run from the wide draw, could upset.
