Race 3: ZENA MAC (6, Wayne Higgs),  & AFFORDABLE (13, Brent Borcoskie), mob. 2600m: “I haven’t had Zena Mac long but is working nice enough. A good each-way chance if driven right.”

“Affordable is from down south and hadn’t impressed, so needs to improve.”

Race 6: BETTOR LUCK (14, Michelle Neilson), mob. 2600m: “Going bood but drawn bad.  A good each-way chance if he gets a cart into it.”

Race 7: REKLAW SUPREME (4, Wayne Higgs), 3200m std: “Is racing good and on a drop-back. With a quiet run in transit, can get some of it.”
