William Hill Mdn Plate 1533m
Track: GOOD 4 Mostly Clear Rail: Out 7m Entire Circuit. (Pent: 4.58).
Our Obsession can push forward and Press Release can track him across. Nangawooka will be prominent from a low draw. BIANAJEUNEY is third up and comes off a run at Moe that stacks up well for this. Ran well without luck when resuming and the latest on testing ground can bring her right on to peak here. NANGAWOOKA looks to get the right run and has been right around the mark in recent runs at Cranbourne. This hardly looks tougher for him. PRESS RELEASE also comes off a good run at Cranbourne that stacks up. SUGGESTED PLAY: Backing Bianajeuney.

Find this unsuitable. Not ready yet.
