Lucky Houdalakis: No 8 Clifton Cougar is trying further and I am hoping for improvement.
Joe Soma: No 10 Rock Me Twice is working well but the draw is a major concern.
Craig Mayhew: No 12 Spirit Law is a nice filly but might be a bit green; No 14 Winter Sparkler is a nice filly but will need the experience.

Cedric Jonker: No 13 Surfer Dude – I am hoping for a fair run.
Scott Kenny: No 1 Lone Survivor is fit and well and must be a runner again. It is a competitive race.
Mike Azzie: No 6 Reach For The Line is a thief horse. If he tries he can win.
Robbie Sage: No 8 Steak And Ale is having his first run after a gelding and might need this run.
