Skilful Steps (Murray Bridge Race 4 No. 3):
This six-year-old Al Maher gelding is the early favourite in this BM 68 handicap over 1400m. He won a 1700m open handicap by 0.3 length at Penola on 14 January, where he raced up to hit the lead at the 100m and fought hard to hold them off, then started favourite but weakened right out to finish 8.2 lengths 4th over 1800m in the Clare Cup on 25 January. Resuming here after 14 weeks he is vulnerable at this distance and I am prepared to risk him.
