SEYMOUR  R1 #4  BAIT ZAIN  $24.00

The debut 9th of 12 does not read well on paper but the maiden this filly contested on debut looks to be a decent form race. The 2nd placed horse Catadude has won a maiden and then won again up in grade. The 4th and 5th placed horses have gone close at their next starts running 2nd. The 7th  placed horse River Span came out yesterday and bolted in. Blinkers go on this filly for her second start and hopefully she can put in a better performance for us and her connections. #14 Sunday Diamond might be worth a couple dollars, only got to see the vision of the jump-out over the concluding stages near the winning post but she was not far behind a couple Patrick Payne runners, including Bastyan.


This filly went to Bendigo for her debut and raced in some tough conditions. The rain was pelting down, and she may not have handled the track all that well. I think the form from that race will stack up with a few promising types going around. Her jump-out leading into that debut was decent against older gallopers and she gets another chance here with the winkers going on.

SEYMOUR R3 #9  QUINTUS $13.20  #2 BANJO SHARK $14.60

I thought QUINTUS went well enough on debut when finishing 2.7L behind Horowitz. He was then disappointing at Pakenham when racing on the synthetic, but the margin was a bit unfair as he copped some interference in the straight. He since has been back to the jump-outs on the grass and beat a few winners. BANJO SHARK caught the eye in a Cranbourne jump-out when crossing the line with Mister Monaro. Leale finished behind, she is proven to be much better than maiden grade. Quality Diamond was also behind and has subsequently run well at Moonee Valley. #1 ALLOUT STROPIE still looks to be improving with every start and can be included in exotics.


I think the 5th behind Pinkham at Seymour reads well for this. She looked to be strong enough through the line and was still up near the front of the pack after the winning post. Shantara has come out and franked the form by winning.


I liked the trial at Ballina when she beat home a few that go alright, including Removal. The run at Grafton was disappointing but she has been given plenty of time to improve.

WAGGA R3 #10  SAINT HENRY $26.50

Ran ok first up at Albury when running 6th behind Sunrise Ruby. That filly looks to have nice ability and I would not be shocked to see her in town at some stage. The 2nd placed horse Jack the Brumby is also racing well and had form around Fenech. Saint Henry will be fitter for the run and also drops 4kg.
