Race 4, No. 10 NINDAMOS
Could not of been more impressive on debut when given a chance to balance up and came from last for a soft win in the end. Draws out again and will be ridden quiet so he can posses his great turn of foot and get over the top of them. Out of a group 1 mare in Neroli and he also looks a serious horse in the making.
Race 5, No. 1 SWEET SCANDLE
Looked to race flat and was disappointing when second up as she looked a moral beat when resuming this campaign. Hasn't drawn well at all and will need a great ride from Weatherly to overcome the outside gate but she does drop in grade and looks over the odds here at $7.
Brenton Avdulla strikes at 22% here for the current season, he has 6 nice rides today.
Race 3, No. 1 LA SCOPA
Just missed in his last two in town since returning from the paddock and he does look a good thing being the best horse in the race on ratings. Punters are all over him and so they should backing him into even money after opening up at 6/4.
Leg 1: 1,2,4,7
Leg 2: 1,2,5,9
Leg 3: 3,5,8,11
Leg 4: 1,8,9,11

Race 1: 11-8-1-5. Comes down from Queensland and was good on debut in a lead up to the Magic Millions, will pay to keep an eye on the market with these juveniles.
Race 2: 2-1-6-5. Falls right away this race with the scratings. Will be winning.
Race 3: 1-6-5-13. Looks ready to win and he will find this race more to his liking than previous runs.
Race 4: 10-12-9-3. Best see above.
Race 5: 1-5-4-7. Value see above.
Race 6: 2-1-4-7. Gets back onto firmer ground and should dictate the race, another that is over the odds at $9.
Race 7: 1-5-2-9. Best horse in the race and will find this easier than previous, only concern is the lack of pace in the race so McDonald will have to be on his game.
Race 8: 11-8-3-5. Can take the next step after giving nothing else a chance when winning a highway first up. Can lead all the way over this trip where she has won 4 from 5.
Race 9: 9-11-1-8. Is better on top of the ground even though he wasn't disgraced on the wet last start. Not a strong race and he can take it out.
