Race 6 - (1400 METRES) - VALENTINO ROSSA - 5th. Trainer: Jason Coyle.
Honest campaigner who caught the eye here late off a freshen up and most of his better form is around the mile, so expect good improvement off this hit-out. Prior to his winter efforts (he doesn't handle wet tracks) he won convincingly at BM78 level before a runner-up effort to Mantastic who was a listed winner that prep. Low enough rating at 77 and can be placed to win soon.
Race 8 - (1200 METRES) - IRUKANDJI - 5th. Trainer: Bjorn Baker.
Ex Team Hawkes galloper who was first up here for the Bjorn Baker and he does have a good habit of taking these type of gallopers back through the grades and with his 73 rating, he'll pick up races. His only win to date was at Group 3 level as a 2yo before some honest efforts at that level as an early 3yo and has come home well here given he will get over more ground.

Certainly no world beater as his record suggests but with his very low rating, should be one dropping well in grade to provincial or even country level now and off this strong performance which indicated a mile will suit now, he'll be hard to beat to beat back to that sort of company. He's another that wasn't quite at home on the soft tracks and was...
