Skilendra (Launceston Race 5 No. 9):
This five-year-old Skilled mare has had six starts for three places and has never finished further back than 5th. She was wide with no cover early before chasing hard for 3.35 lengths 4th over 1400m on 25 November, then she came from well back for 0.75, 0.4 lengths 3rd over 1400m at Launceston on 9 December. Resuming from a 12 week let-up she gets the winkers on for the first time and looks well worth an each-way bet in this mid-week maiden.
