Race 5 No.5  WAHINE TOA – ($3.80)

WAHINE TOA should find this easier than recent runs. The Maher/Eustace mare has lined up at BenchMark 70 level at her past few starts and was unlucky not to win at Mornington over the 2000m three starts ago when 4th, beaten less than a length. She has tackled Heavy tracks at Sandown at her past couple and worked hard early on last time over the 2400m before fading into 6th position. The daughter of Dalakhani comes back to a country setting and did go 2.2 lengths slower than standard last time, which are the best last start benchmark figures of any runner, while she went 2.1 lengths faster at her start prior. Linda Meech rides and might look to cross from barrier 9. 




Race 6 No. 12 MISS DANIEL- ($4)

MISS DANIEL can go close in Race 6 of the day at Donald. The Symon Wilde-trained galloper has had four runs this time in and came across from Adelaide to tackle the Ballarat Synthetic on July 7, finishing an unlucky runner-up being Rosalia in a race that has provided three winners. She was held up that day and missed out in a photo with the winning pair putting a big gap on the rest. The daughter of Starcraft makes her first star for the stable and has attracted a heap of support in the betting. Harry Coffey rides and produces a 22% profit on turnover when combining with the stable.
