Race 5, No. 11 VERRY ELLEEGANT
Ticks all the boxes and even gets the services of leading hoop James McDonald. Draws perfect in 2, is at home in these conditions winning 3 from 4 and she won second up last time in. Should settle in the middle of them and have the last crack at them.
Race 1, No. 4 YOU MAKE ME SMILE
Amazing how a market works as this was a beaten favorite when running fourth when outclassed in a group 3 race and is a price here of $6 in his right grade and gets conditions to suit as he like the give in the ground. Form has been franked with the second horse coming out and winning a listed race and this will take a lot of beating in this BM88 where he can lead all the way.
Hard to find a jockey that has an outstanding book of rides on a meet like James McDonald. He has 8 rides with 4 of them being favorite with chances on at least another 3 rides. He is in for a huge day.
