Places (1-2-3-4) from Barrier Draw

WAIMEA put up a solid effort last time out, his first as a gelding. He finished behind a quality sort that has now won two features over the sprints and that formline appears to be the strongest in this line-up. With the expected improvement to come, he should be too good for this field. ONE OF OUR OWN made good improvement with the blinkers on last time out. That effort came over this C&D and if repea- ting that effort, he should go very close. POTJIE is another one that has shown good improvement since having the blinkers fitted. The gelding has certainly worked and if repeating that last effort with Simons retaining the ride, he should go right into contention. LAND OF THE BRAVE returns as a gelding, after a decent debut effort behind a decent sort. He still has plenty of scope to improve and with the added weight advantage with the claimer engaged for this outing, he must be included.
