Has had a career filled with unlucky tales, if he draws a good gate, he can't get out, if he draws a bad gate he can't get in.

Flemington Race 5, No. 2 SAMOVARE
Classy mare who will start as short favourite, but I think anything around $2 is real value. First up last time she had to lug 60kg and was extremely brave, just going down.

Rosehill Race 3, No 7 ARBEITSAM
Progressive type and a typical, tough Waterhouse horse that should be able to run them along here. Last time at this trip he was run down late by Vaucluse Bay who spanked them at his next start and he does drop 7kg off that run. It'll take a big effo...
