A very open first race. 9.Glorified had her chance last start and just went down. Her action says a slow track will suit better so if Grylls can get in one off somewhere, she looks the best chance. RP $3.60, $4 FF
2.Neon Moon has run two strong placings and the extra 1400m on a slow track looks ideal for her. RP $3, $3 FF
1.Drum Major did well last start when 6th outer and had to change ground and when balanced up hit the line hard in the best last 200 metres. 1300m will suit better and gets 3kgs off in an easier 3yo maiden. RP $7
2.Dark Destroyer looked good in his trial and is ready to win on debut and the early money is solid for him.
Confidence: 1/5 in an open race with many fresh up runners. Maybe the market will give us good guide
In order: 5-8-9-2-1
2.Canchero looked good winning two starts back then had a tough run last start. Drawn to get all favours and gets 3kgs off. 10.Ziegfield won well on debut and drawn to get every chance. 6.Eridani fresh up could surprise.
2.Moana looked in need of that fresh up run which was too short for her anyway. 1200m suits and she has the strongest form coming into this. Wide draw may be an asset or a liability by this time of day. RP $4, $5 FF
9.El Vencedor is a nice horse who should be improved by that fresh up run. Strong 2nd on debut.
3.Caramella ran a strong 2nd fresh up on a similar surface. Drawn to get the right trip.
2.Midnite Invasion has been racing and rating best in stronger fields and with 2kgs off against a weaker field, does look well placed. RP $3.40, $4
4.Endean Lass rates well and gets 2kgs off and is on the improve.
3.Iffraajinator ran a strong second, second up, last campaign and ran on well late fresh up.
