Race 8: KOWHAI SUNRISE (19, Mark), UR 5, 2500m std: “If she goes away, she’s actually going good enough to be a chance.”

Race 7: GOODNESS GRACIOUS ME (10, Jonny Cox), mob. 2400m: “They deleted her race, a fillies and mares mile down there, so she’s in this instead.  Providing she gets a bit of luck she’s an each-way chance against the colts. She’s a tough wee thing. she lacks brilliance but tries hard enough.”
