Pretty Pine is a four-year-old mare who was last seen finishing third of eight over a mile a week ago at Seymour, she goes up in trip here and is likely to get a nice run off the speed and should be prominent at the post.

T: C Widdison J: C MacFarlane (a3) (60.5kg)

As Bad As Tyson is a five-year-old gelding who was last seen finishing fifth of 12/1523m in a BM70 handicap at Mooney Valley and comes into this full of confidence from that run.

He is currently a $4.80 chance having won twice this preparation from seven runs, and will be enhanced by the claiming apprentice.

Cash Crisis is a four-year-old gelding whose having an outstanding preparation this time through, winning once and placing three times from four outings with the last run at Albury a fortnight ago finishing second of 6/1175m.

He has good early speed and looks a likely contender.

Razzle Dazzle Rock is a seven-year-old gelding who was last seen racing at Wodonga 26 weeks ago finishing fifth of 7 on that occasion.

He resumes with no barrier trial for new trainer Craig Widdison, having not won in six occasions first up, a number of gear changes have also been altered with the tongue control and lugging bit off for the first time with Craig adding a tongue tie to the runner's attire.

In the straight.
