Race 3- Australian Bloodstock Maiden Plate 1200m

Plaisir has poor barrier manners, but he is the class runner and races best on this track.

Sensacova has good form on this track.


5- Nothing Too Hard

Race 5- New Zealand Bloodstock 4YO & Up Maiden Plate 1600m

Alam Mo Na is a promising stayer which will appreciate the 1600 second up. She ran on well at the end of 1400 first up and she will be hard to hold out.

Deelbraka has been runner up in seven of his eleven starts and he is well weighted after the claim.
