Pinjarra Next Best Bet - Race 3 No. 1 Trevern
Third-up and staying at the 1200m following a narrow defeat on May 6, this gelding should be able to give a big sight once again and on an each-way/1x3 basis, appeals over the odds-on favourite who's a leading hope, but he did have every chance on debut.
Trevern did all but deny Justhandy in that second-up effort, a galloper who had some decent form around his first two preparations and that quinella were clearing out, while for Maiden company, the time stacked up well compared to the Class 5 later in the program.
The three-year-old drops from 57kg to 55.5kg courtesy of the smart claim from Laqdar Ramoly, who has barrier one at his disposal and with a little more improvement predicted, he can give this a shake.

Pinjarra Best Bet - Race 5 No. 4 Vane Tempest
The main threat for this filly does appear to be What About Moi, who I think is a genuine city class galloper in time, but both fresh over 1200m, the favourite gets the nod given that gelding will get over longer trips.
Tipped out after catching the eye on debut back in August, the daughter of Snippetson was dominant when returning on January 6, leading throughout to win in slick time for the January 6 meeting from Pinjarra. comfortably bettering the other six furlong sprints for that card.
Winning three starts later and then spelled following her March 7 attempt at Ascot, she returns with the blinkers off and the racing Ear Muffs have also been removed, with Vane Tempest needing to settle a little more if she's to contest stronger races this campaign.

Pinjarra Value Bet - Race 8 No. 2 Convalesce
Many of the Steve Wolfe-trained runners do improve deeper into their preparations and this gelding looks no exception, now closing in on a peak performance third-up over what is a more suitable distance.
There was clearly an opinion of Convalesce early given he was fancied against some slick juveniles over his initial four outings, however, has clearly needed a little more time and with maturity, is looking a galloper that will get over a trip.
Finishing just half a length off Son Son (won two of his next three in town) via his 1500m attempt last December, that form is certainly good enough for a Provincial Class 1 and this field does have a long tail to it outside of the three-year-old's.
