Wgt: 59.0kg
Draw: 8 (12 Runners)
Predicted Betting: 33/1

She showed good improvement last time out when dropping back to the minimum trip, despite overcoming a wide draw. She returns to the same course and distance as her last start and we certainly believe she has plenty of scope to improve. Her work has been very good leading up to this race and she will be looking to show further improvement, if finding a bit of luck in running from gate 8. Jason Gates retains the ride and she has a place chance.

Winning Form Comment: Gates retains ride. Expect natural progression.

1400m – MR 68 Handicap

2 – Agent Murphy
Trainer: Alyson Wright
Jockey: Jason Gates (-1.5kg)
Wgt: 60.0kg
Draw: 2 (14 Runners)
Predicted Betting: 5/1

He definitely needed his comeback run last time out, but it still turned out to be quite the educational run for everyone concerned. The jockey reported that he was over-exerting himself to stay with the fast 1000m tempo and he will love a more relaxed gallop, over a bit further. This was contrary to what we expected to see and hear, but when scrutinizing his pedigree, the 1400m is definitely within his grasp and he lands a useful draw for his second attempt over this trip. He will be fitter and stronger this time, but he may not be ready to win and we will be happy to see him just improve on his last start. He has a good place chance.

Winning Form Comment: Drops in class. Needed comeback run. Well drawn and chance if enjoys the poly.
