Interesting race. I like the look of MISS HORSBORO in this. She gets back but has a finishing spurt which she showed last start when a solid finishing 3rd at Queanbeyan this grade over 1460m. Is fitter now too being 3rd up. Has only raced 4 times and that was by far her best effort as she was last for home and a long way off the leader. Should settle closer in the run today and the extra trip is in her favour. NEVER ASTERN can bob for 2nd a big paying quinella.


I’m looking forward to this race. There is very little in talent between the Nat Jarvis trained pair DRAGONS BREATH and AWESOME AUDREY. The latter is unbeaten from just one run in maiden grade and steps up a fair way in class here. Which means I lean toward the stablemate. Dragons Breath had a great prep last season winning twice and placing twice from 5 runs. From this great draw will sit back in 3rd spot and just may have come up even better this time around. Quinella them.


The last time this enigmatic mare MORE SHOTS raced over this trip on a soft track she was ridden by  Brendon Ward. Ward is back on today and that day he last rode her on a soft track, she led all the way to win easily by nearly 3 lengths. Her past 4 starts have been poor missing a place every time but that combo of winning is back here and at big odds she may well be on speed all the ay and win again. SHAKA ROCK can run 2nd.
