Race 6:  No.3  BOOROWA GIRL  ($6.50 with Unibet)

The Bathurst-based BOOROWA GIRL has found her mojo of late and in the conditions today, looks a big chance of victory at odds. Last start, the Xtravagant mare finally shook the maiden monkey when she beat home a 12-strong field over 1200m on her home track on a Heavy 8 that day. She ran the trip out, 4.8 lengths slower than benchmark, a new personal best and the best here by more than 3 lengths. In crossing the line two lengths ahead on them, she posted the fastest final 800m to 200m sectionals for the race as well. Yet to miss a podium finish in three starts on heavy tracks, Jake Barrett sticks with her today and after his claim, the mare carries a half kilo under the limit, giving her a slight edge on the forecast wet track. In her current form, she will give this contest a real fright today.



Race 4:  No.1  LORD FINLAND  ($3.40 with TAB)

The Bjorn Baker-trained LORD FINLAND has looked impressive at his first two starts and this contest looks a little easier for him to break through today. Last start, the All Too Hard gelding came off a runner-up effort on debut at Bathurst when he rung-up another podium finish at Goulburn in a 1300m Maiden Hcp. After box-seating early, he chased home the leader and battled on gamely to take home third prize that day. He should strip even fitter for those two runs which will puts him right in the mix for a victory today.



Race 8:  No.6  MONEY NOT MY GOD  ($8 with Palmerbet)

Narromine galloper, MONEY NOT MY GOD, has done enough this time in to be a big chance of victory today at odds. Last start, the Headwater gelding made it three-straight top-two finishes when he beat all but one to the line in a Class 1 Hcp over 1200m at Corowa. Grant Buckley was aboard that day an on a Heavy 10 track, he ran the fastest final 800m to 200m sectionals, beaten a neck in the end. He won his maiden here two starts back and is currently in career-best form. He is ideally drawn in gate four and maps to settle just behind the pace. He has the runs on the board and looks a solid each-way chance in this contest.
