Race Summary: GLOBAL DRUMMER is 1 of 2 runners for trainer Gavin Smith and he must be considered. LOVE POTION is his stable companion and the betting on both should be watched. HOMER FIDGET was not disgraced when fourth on his debut. It could be worth noting that his stable companion is the Philanthropist colt PRIVATE INITIATIVE. WANGAN MIDNIGHT and WINTER VACATION deserve respect.

Race Summary: MARY O REILLY has ability but she does not always show it. She could be theright one if at her best.

OUTLANDO’S D’AMOUR is consistent and not out of it. BRANDINA is a good filly and she can go close to winning.
