Malaguerra can show us that he is an elite talent. He has been going about his business through the grades as easy as you’d like and running some amazing times. His win last start showed his versatility as he was held up hopelessly and still sprinted when the gap presented for what was a soft win. This is a big step up in grade to WFA Group 1 level but he is well up to it.
Press Statement has had this race targeted all preparation, hence the four weeks between runs since the George Ryder behind Winx. The drop back to 1400m suits him and his sire, Hinchinbrook, ran second behind Hay List on a big track in this race five years ago. Press Statement himself is proven in the going.
Kermadec has been bleeding from the mouth in the mounting yard in his last two runs and it could be a reason behind his Doncaster flop. He is better suited back to the 1400m and the soft conditions are in his favour.
Goldstream could be a blowout first up in Australia. He has had two trials leading in which have been quite good. It might be worth taking a line through his run behind Highland Reel in America and if Kris Less has got some sprint in his legs, he could cause a surprise.
