Horses previewed in numerical order
Race 8             Rating 70 1400m
2 GALAXY STAR – Opie Bosson
Resuming from a spell he ran along in front after being first out then quickened when asked and found plenty to win at Hawera over 1200m on Slow7, on the back of a smart trial win here. Up in grade and distance for this assignment he has the services of a top rider, jumps from handy gate, and appears capable of reaching a higher grade.  
5 VOLKSWOOD – Hayden Tinsley
Following a very nice trial win in May he got home to score on debut under hands and heels after being posted wide in the run at Wanganui over 1200m on Dead4 with this rider aboard. His dam won twice over a mile and he appears the type to appreciate stepping to 1400m at his second start.
10 BELLES FAST – Lisa Allpress
Unsuited by heavy going in both starts since resuming this filly showed a torrent of speed to win as a two-year-old at New Plymouth over 1000m on good footing before being narrowly beaten by Icepin at Ellerslie next start. With blinkers on for this assignment she has the natural speed to take up a handy position, or lead, and should appreciate the footing on offer.
