Runner Comments

1. SarkozySat behind the speed and narrowly failed to make up the ground holding second 0.2L at Moe Bm64 over 1600m. Held off rivals for a soft win 1.3L at Wangaratta Bm64 over 1590m. Nice win in a similar race at Wangaratta and can win again here.
2. Lucabelle6L back, under riding turn, just held spot 5.8L at The Valley Bm64 over 1200m. Nicely positioned in the race and tried hard when running on into third 2.4L at Bendigo Bm64 over 1400m. Extra distance will suit.
3. TrenchantTop win to reel in the leaders from midfield 1.3L at Warrnambool Bm58 over 1400m. Gave a great sight out in front but was run down for third 1.5L at Warrnambool Bm70 over 1700m.
4. Yatta IzuNever likely to threaten after being midfield in transit 3.3L at Pakenham Bm64 over 1400m. Last, tracked closer turn, sustained run 3L at The Valley F&M Bm70 over 1600m. Good run in slightly tougher company here last start. Can improve.
5. ShoplifterPositioned behind the front-runners and ran on hard to win 0.8L at Wodonga Bm64 over 1400m. Ran home determinedly over the final stages to gain second 0.8L at Seymour Bm64 over 1400m Soft 5.
6. Tongsai BossSlow to get going and it always had the task ahead hanging on sixth 3L at Morphettville 3Y Bm70 over 1200m. Nice positioned to threaten however no match for the first two when third 2.3L at Morphettville Parks 3Y Bm70 over 1400m.
7. Welcome StrykerWide no cover, no surprise dropped out 4.8L at Lakeside Bm64 over 1600m. Loomed as the winner and got to the lead when it mattered most 0.5L at Bendigo 0 - 58 over 1600m.
8. Atlantic ExpressSettled on the speed and burst clear to win softly 4.5L at Yarra Valley 0 - 58 over 1514m. Ran on nicely in the straight to gain third spot after nice run behind leaders 1L at Pakenham Bm64 over 1600m.
9. Nashville SoundRidden behind the leaders and strolled home for a soft win 1L at Warrnambool Mdn-Sw over 1700m Soft 5. Allowed every opportunity to win after sitting with the leader but faded into third 0.6L at Warrnambool Bm64 over 1700m.
10. DivanationSat behind the leaders and strolled home for a top win 2.3L at Werribee Mdn-Sw over 1625m Soft 7. Went forward to and held on well for second 0.8L at Morphettville 3Y Bm70 over 1800m Soft 6. Impressive in her two starts so must include.
11. Godzone GirlCame from a mile back to get within a few lengths 2.2L at Pakenham F&M Bm64 over 1400m. Gave a great sight out in front but was reeled in easily for third 2.2L at Stawell Bm64 over 1600m.
12. Avoid the RushTracked into the race nicely from behind the speed and just out played fourth 2.8L at Moe Bm58 over 1623m. Ran home strongly for second over the final 400m and just missed by a narrow margin 0.2L at Terang Bm58 over 1400m.
