R4 #2 Haveago Charlie – Much improved galloper this preparation. His two runs back have both contained solid hidden merit. First up at Cessnock over the 1350m on a Heavy 9 surface he was checked out of it when going to run a clear second. Second up he went to Kempsey on a Heavy 10 over 1450m – very wide and working throughout there on a solid tempo – his effort was again strong to battle away. He looks likely to appreciate the softer draw this time – Robert Thompson sticks and should be strong to the line. Can find strong queries against all of the runners hard in the market and this bloke looks great value.

R7 #2 Happy Go Plucky – Another Alan Denham trained runner that looks primed to go here. Very strong late first up around the tight Cessnock circuit. Went to Newcastle in a deeper race last start and uncharacteristically took up the running there – over run by two smart gallopers late there. Fitter again for that run – suited back to this grade at the similar distance. Really cannot find a danger with solid claims. Looks his race to lose.
