Race 7 Number 3 Aerohappiness
Had genuine excuses last start when crowded upon jumping and losing significant ground. After that, he was steadied and settled at the rear of the field, before producing a huge finish which saw him post some of the best closing splits of the day to check home into fourth, beaten 2 ¼ lengths behind AETHERO.
This is a winnable race for him this week and he looks one of defending champion trainer John Size’s leading contenders to secure him another title.
Race 9 Number 5 Young Legend
Won nicely at this track and distance two starts ago before going on a to run a visually disappointing fifth at his next start, fading inside the final 200m. However, when examining the early speed from each race, it reveals his last start was run at four-to-five lengths faster to the 800m, 600m and 400m, therefore his 1 ½ length beaten margin still boasted plenty of merit.
Rated a touch softer this week should see him back in the money and a longer price without Zac Purton in the saddle.

Race 6 Number 1 Defining Moment
Looks very well placed dropping to Class 4 after a series a promising runs in Class 3 where he posted some impressive final splits. Stepping back up to 1800m should see him hard to hold out under Zac Purton.
Race 11 Number 11 Glorious Spectrum
Produced an enormous first-up run when settling at the rear of the field over 1200m before scorching home in 22.20 seconds, which ranked third best of the meeting at +5 lengths above average. A talented horse with ratings points up his sleeve who will relish the 1400m second-up.
