Sale R1 No.8 - READY REVIEW
Comes out of a slick race at Bendigo 10 days ago over the 1100m when getting within 2 lengths of Wazzenme (ran super in town yesterday), that race rated well enough to see him go close and if anything he looks even further suited to 1200m (strong late). That day at Bendigo was on a very soft surface so fancy that type of track again will pose no issue. Inside marble might see him take a closer sit in transit!

Sale R3 No.8 - SUPER MARIO (x2 NAP)
Went nicely on debut in AUS for C.Alderson at Pakenham two weeks ago over the 2200, that was on the syntho at Pakenham so keen to see him get back onto the turf. He should have gone close to winning on that occasion, jockey fell asleep at the wheel while winner was off and gone. He was five weeks between runs, too, so keen he takes good benefit/strips fitter and proves really hard to beat here. Inside draw no issue.

Sale R5 No.2 - TYCOON FELIX
Nice horse this fella who's been racing well in good company of late, he hit the line like a coming winner at Pakenham and maybe was ridden a touch upside-down (synthetic) over the 1200m when just missing to the metro-class Devils Pinch, who had a much softer run/handier. Has shown he can get through soft tracks in the past and do like the way he maps for this (sits closer).

Sale R8 No.7 - SONSY
Former Kiwi having her Australian debut for J.Bridgman, she's got talent, has form around some very smart types of 1400m in NZ (Luen Yat Miracle) on soft tracks which rates well enough to win this. Was pleased by her trial at Pakenham ten days ago, she had plenty up her sleeve and gave every indication she could run a bolter fresh, maybe slight query drawing the rails, but if pattern suits I'm sure she'll take beating.

Casterton R7 No.3 - BASSONS
Won well here six weeks ago over the 1400m (in relative ok time) and has since been given time to freshen up, he finds himself in a really winnable BM58 surrounded by plodders so fancy with the right run in transit/soft track (conditions suit!) he has a terrific chance to make it two on the trot. Has some upside in a limited bunch!
