Race 4, No. 3 BALLER
Looks a good thing dropping into this benchmark where he has been racing very well in much harder company. Nash will go forward on him from an outside gate and I'm sure he is just here to get his confidence up as there will be better races install for him.
Race 2, No. 5 NICCONITA
Ready to go here third up and has good form coming out of her last start where she ran 4th with the second horse dominating here in the last on Wednesday. Hasn't won here but does race well as she has had 3 seconds under her belt. Loos a very nice each way play at $12.
James McDonald has had a slow start to the season after winning last years premiership. He has 7 very nice rides and will be worth following.
Race 8, No. 12 STAR OF THE SEAS
Been a little go here for a mare that has gone nicely through her grades last prep. This is her biggest test to date but has been very well supported by the punters. Opened up $26 and has been crunched into $14.

Race 1: 3-2-4-1. Great race to kick start the meeting as we have 3 very good horses that are on the up and will play a roll over Spring.
Race 2: 5-18-6-4. Value see above.
Race 3: 1-3-6-7. Always races well fresh and she looks to have the class factor on these. Trialed up along side Libertini which is a big push going forward.
Race 4: 3-4-5-7. Best see above.
Race 5: 2-4-1-3.Could not of been anymore impressive first up and she just wins this.
Race 6: 3-6-4-1.How can you separate any of these, what a race for such a small field.
Race 7: 1-12-11-15. Better suited over the mile and he has great 2nd up form. Just wins.
Race 8: 4-2-8-14. A quality race with many chances with most improving on what they do here.
Race 9: 2-6-10-17. Not the worst and he will get a soft run throughout where others fancy runners draw out.
