Steve's Choice is a six-year-old mare having raced two weeks ago at Jerilderie, in a BM55 handicap finishing second of 10/1000m arriving 0.54 behind Sarona Downs.

Will probably race forward here, and drops a kg off her last start, needs a good surface to be at her best and rates an each way contender.

Race six on the card will see the Lillypilly Wines-Lillypilly Cup over 1150 m with $20,000 there for the taking with As Bad As Tyson saddling up for the team jumping from barrier (5).

As Bad As Tyson is a consistent five-year-old gelding who was last seen finishing third of 12/1170 m seven weeks ago at Echuca in a BM 78 Hcp, when beaten by Foreign Affair on that occasion under Linda Meech.

Craig has given the five year old gelding a let up from that last outing, having won or placed five of his last 7, 3 out of four have come via a dry surface.

As Bad As Tyson will likely race on the speed and looks primed to run a bottler here.

Best of luck to all connected on Monday at Leeton.
