Runner Comments

1. DerocheGot the campaign off to a strong start winning when fresh and has outstanding form at this track. six of 10 wins have come from dry ground. The testing material.
2. Still A StarResuming from a long 52 week spell and last start win at Launceston took streak to four in a row. In good shape from recent trial successes. Hard to go past.
3. Mystical PursuitWon once this prep at Hobart two runs back and a track specialist winning five times at Launceston. Won four of six as a favourite. Must be considered.
4. Ethical SolutionLast start winner at Hobart on a soft track when fresh. Likely to race on the speed and Joe Bowditch has had success aboard previously. Winning chance.
5. MelodeonDid nothing to threaten last start at Caulfield when fresh but will come to hand quickly and a winner when last second-up at Moonee Valley. Drops in weight. Needs the breaks.
6. ManilenyaFinished seven lengths off the winner last start at Hobart on a soft track and won once this prep at Hobart five runs back. Drawn ideally but appears tested.
7. Runaway GirlWas able to place at long odds last start at Hobart when resuming and goes well at Launceston. Ran third at Hobart when last second-up. Can surprise.
8. Lucky LilComing off a win at Hobart and two wins from five attempts this campaign. No wins in five past runs at Launceston. Not here.
9. French Heiress1-1/2 len win of 6 (1) $2.05F 57.0 Pompeia, Gee Gees Punter 1350m Devonport Synthetic (Bm60) Synthetic Jan 11. Sht hd, 1/2 hd 3rd of 8 (2) $8.00 55.5 Gee Gees Queenie, Louis' Choice 1420m Launceston (Bm66) Good(4) Jan 27.
