NICCONI LEGGERA would have been odds on had she not drawn the outside barrier, which is usually deadly from this start. But she does have a lot of pace and several of her main rivals have also got bad barriers.
One of those to draw badly was RARE OCCURRENCE, who was one of the early stars of the two-year-old season. She has worked very well in recent weeks and the stable usually has them ready first up.
REAL CLASSIC trialled very well at the Gold Coast and is one horse which is drawn well. His trials have indicated that he can hit the line hard while taking up a good position from the barrier draw. Real Classic is a half brother to the handy Siegfried, which indicates he will be even better at 1400m or further. But fresh, he will be hard to beat.
OINK is looking for at least 1200m but there are no suitable two-year-olds of that distance in Brisbane at the moment. He trialled in blinkers at Deagon recently and made short work of an ordinary field. Oink's best chance is a mad speed early here.
The interesting runner is He's For Real, who is a full brother to Magic Millions winner Real Surreal. No trials but he is reported to be handy and the stable is noted for first up winners who have not trialled officially.
