PACIFIC COIN (7) was returning from a spell last start when showing early hustle to find a forward position. Only 6m away, that margin could have been smaller had the gaps opened sooner. The second line is a stinger but with the right trail through in the early stages, he can knock them off.
SCHEU CREEK (5) has a smart record here at the Burg but is not aided by the tough gate. Working home soundly to grab the bronze at headquarters three starts back, he was in for the fight when facing the breeze here 2 starts back and grinding out a 3rd. He might need to roll the sleeves again here.
MAJOR SLIP UP (8) has 3 wins and 2 minors in his 8 appearances at this track but will need to negotiate the ODM tag from gate 8. Making an early error last start, he struck trouble here 2 back. If he can get around cleanly, he comes into calculations.
BETTOR WATCH HIM (6) will be requiring some luck and factors in his favour at some point from this alley, two assets that have deserted him in recent outings. Likely pegged away he will be probing.
SELECTIONS: PACIFIC COIN (7), SCHEU CREEK (5), MAJOR SLIP UP (8), BETTOR WATCH HIM (6)
SUGGESTED BET: PACIFIC COIN (7) to win
