Dibaba can look to cross and Whatta Conk might be happy to trail. Little Bliss has speed but if they go forward she may not find the pegs but could get cover from Sadhana who may go forward. Stick Man is likely to get off the fence. SUGGESTED BET - DIBABA TO WIN
Horse 6 Off Front Line Expected Early Pace Pattern Rating Comment
WHATTA CONK
Form: 5 9 7 8 s
FT
Forward with a Trail
$17.00 First up. Form fell away last time in. Gets the right draw. A trifecta chance.
DAN FERNANDO NZ
Form: 8 9 3 6 9
MT
Midfield with a Trail
$21.00 Plain at his past couple, so needs a lift.
REDBELLY JACK
Form: 8 8 6 4 7
MT
Midfield with a Trail
$21.00 Form is just moderate and another who would need to find more.
DIBABA
Form: 8 6 3 9 3
LD
Leader
$2.50 Ran well last time when she followed a hot speed. Can look for the front and is a leading hope.
LITTLE BLISS
Form: 1 5 8 4 5
FT
Forward with a Trail
$34.00 Has GS but crossing looks tough and this race does look a test.
SADHANA NZ
Form: 1 2 5 8 7
LD
Leader
$13.00 May have a crack at crossing but the draw has added to her task, although she is capable with the right run. Keep in mind.
Back Row
STICK MAN NZ
Form: s 2 2 4 3
BT
Back with a Trail
$2.75 Has an awkward gate but he has been racing well in races that have stacked up form wise. Must respect.
LUKE JOHN NZ
Form: 3 3 s 1 8
BT
Back with a Trail
$5.50 Never a factor last time. His form in NZ is solid and this is a step back. In the mix.
