1-ASHLEY’S DESIRE...winless this semester but noticing the solid late kicks she has produced last couple sts.


3-GOLD STAR PETER...back down to NW 2 class where he did very well 2 starts back. Capable of winning here.

7-MAYBE NED...recent form has been sharp lately. Drawing outside doesn’t help so he must be on engine.

6-LUKAS HALL...improved big time in last. Trotted last 1/2 in :58.3 in solid effort. Merits consideration here.

2-REVRAC HARBOUR...not much on pepre these days but does have fastest win time of all in this field. 15/1.

4-SHADYS ART...got messed up in a logjam in last & happy to survive without much incident. Turns it on late.

7-LAYER CAKE...had to go 1st up backside in last & couldn’t seal the deal. Outside post forces cover flow trip.

3-HAPPY TO SCOOT...doesn’t win often but can really rock and roll late. Drew well & merits consideration.
