Bet365 Mdn Plate 1900m
Track: ALLWEATHER Rain Early
No obvious leader. Black Rushin' has tactical speed. Blinkers are on to Oceans Edge who might be looking to be more positive. MISS BEALS may not have quite gotten home up to 2200m last time. Back to 1900m now where she ran so well two starts back behind a solid winner who has run well again since. Form looks solid for a fairly modest maiden here. PAT'S LAD has been kept fresh. Up in trip off a break is some query but form has been good enough to have him right around the mark. UNSULLIED ran well at Bairnsdale last time and that run brings him into consideration with upside at the trip SUGGESTED PLAY: Backing Miss Beals back in trip.
