ARARAT - Alex Marsh
Race 5, No 1 ZANAHARY
Has found his niche getting up to these trips and it was a relatively soft win in the end at Yarra Valley after doing all donkey work. Don't see many win a 64 like that than drop to a 58 but he still gets in okay with 58.5kg after the claim. No reason why he can't get win number 3 on the board here.
Race 8, No. 6 LUCKY LESLIE
Thought he stuck on okay at Warrnambool against the pattern and should appreciate coming back to what's a pretty bad BM58. Narrowly defeated by Innocent Lily 3 starts back and that was the last time he was in this grade, she has since won again. Has claims in this and he's at a nice each way price of around $9.
NEWCASTLE - David Taggart
Race 3, No. 1 KATHMANDU
Just missed when backed for a fortune last start when running very good time. The winner came out and ran well in a BM72 after turning the tab...
