Warwick Farm galloper PACKER (best odds currently $3.30 with Ladbrokes) is in great touch of late and lines-up here in search of back-to-back victories today. Last start, the Written Tycoon gelding came off a hat-trick of minor placings to finally break through for his Maiden win, here on a Heavy 10 over 1400m. He ran the fastest final 800m to 200m sectionals on the wet track to win by a length on the line. Brock Ryan sticks with him here and drawn the fence today, he looks the one to beat.


The Bjorn Baker-trained COOL ENCOUNTER (best odds currently $2.10 with bet365) resumes off a lengthy six-month break and with a gear change looks a genuine winning chance in this field. Last start, the Fighting Sun gelding ended his last campaign with a Maiden win over 1280m at Orange. He was on a Soft 7 that day and recently finished second in a Rosehill trial on a Heavy 8 surface. He finished second on debut and has two trials behind him now which should have him pumped for this assignment. Baker has put a tongue tie on him today (for the first time) and with Alysha Collett on board here, he is scratched from Race 4 to run here and looks a solid chance on fresh legs.


The Matt Smith-trained ZOU LOVER (best odds currently $2.20 with bet365) returns to Nowra today in search of back-to-back victories here. Last start, the Zoustar filly was fresh off an 18-week spell when she destroyed her maiden rivals, here over 1100m. On a Heavy 10 that day, she ran her last 600m, 6 lengths quicker than benchmark, the best in this line-up by 2 lengths as she crossed the line 6.5 lengths ahead of them. She also managed to record the fastest final 800m to 200m sectionals for the race. Resumes don’t come too much better than that as Blake Spriggs sticks with her here. From gate three, she maps to settle right behind the leaders and should prove mighty hard to hold out in the run home.
