Pakenham R1 No.10 - MISS SALINGER
She is a debutant who trialled really nicely at Cranbourne on a soft track 23/5 over 800m (runner-up from the hitout went well on debut), suggest she's quite comfortably the best of this lot and does map for a beautiful run in the box-seat stalking the leaders. Like the kick off at the 1200m, too.

Wyong R6 No.1 - ECHO PRINCE
Nice horse who was just a touch soft late first-up at Newcastle over the 1200m, did all the work leading early, kicked at the bend and was just nabbed in the closing stages. No doubt strips fitter and the tempo progressing to the 1300m will be nowhere near as hot. Does get through soft tracks no issue so fancy he's clearly the one to beat (pattern may suit).

Wyong R7 No.8 - CONARCHIE
He is the clear stand-out in whats a very poor race, his last three efforts in town are all easily good enough to take care of this lot, interesting to note was ridden upside-down two weeks ago at Canterbury over the 1250m and did make outstanding ground. Proven to be fairly versatile but would assume he'd basically lead on his ear from the inside draw. Track no issues.

Pakenham R5 No.1 - AMBER CAVALIER
Went ok first-up on a soft track at Bendigo, has traditionally been a real improver second-up (2 wins from 6) and should be further suited to 1200m. Gets in well with the claim from apprentice L.Riordan and should find the front quite comfortably. Did finish within a length of Kings Command (saturday winner) earlier this year over the six furlongs
Amber Cavalier - 1pt @ 7.00
Pakenham R3 No.2 - COMADI
Comes out of a really slick race here at Pakenham on the turf three weeks ago over the 1200m when first-up for 13 months, winner is certainly above average and the race rated well. Not too concerned by the wide draw as he'll roll forward from the wide alley and possibly lead them up. Think he's a better horse at 1400m and can only take good physical benefit from the hit-out.
Comadi - 1pt @ 3.40
