WELLINGTON - David Taggart
Race 4, No. 1 SOCIAL PIRATE
Looked in need of the run first up despite being sent out favorite. Should be leading here with the blinkers going on again and has won 2nd up in the past. Is one from one on the soft track and hopefully he gets a soft lead as he has to carry weight.
Race 3, No. 6 ZIOPTIMUS
Draws the pole and should be leading if not the gun run in the box seat. Steps up to the 1400m which may be a concern but is in the astute Kehoe stable and clearly they think it won't be a worry. Is at odds of $7.

WODONGA - Alex Marsh
Race 2, No. 8 PIERRO BELLE
Pulled up with a few issues on debut in the listed Talindert and was then tipped out. Shown ability at the trials either side of that performance and does look ready to go here fresh after two good hit-outs. Doesn't look the strongest maiden to kick-off her campaign.
