Race 4: EASTBURN MARA (5, Blair Orange), mob. 2200m: “Is racing good and had no luck last week. From the draw and with the right run, can place.”

Race 6: OASIS DREAM (3, Blair Orange), 2200m std: “Racing honestly and a strong winning chance.”

Race 7: CLASSIEBEE (7, Blair Orange) & FAIR DINKUM BROMAC (8, Kimberly Butt), mob. 2200m:

Race 6: MASTER LAVROS (6, Mark), 2, 20m, 2600m std: “This a nice race to start off in and will be a true run race with the Fiery Ginga in there. Master Lavros has been trialling alright and his class means he’ll be hard to beat.”
