Last time out Pretty Pine finished 8 of 12/1660 at Wangaratta when competing in a maiden at that venue, running on reasonably well from back in the field & will likely settle back again and should be an improver.

Last time out canover finished 7 of 11/1400 m at Albury, & has placed two run from nine starts this preparation, returning to a shorter trip, he should be forward in the running and any return to recent Cranbourne form should see him competitive in this.

Last time out Razzle Dazzle Rock finished 10 of 12/1175 m in a BM 60 at Albury, he has not been in the greatest form since resuming this preparation but should be fitter for recent outings and won’t be far away in the run, he drops 8 kg from the last effort and has drawn to get some favors.
