R4 2.30pm The Resimax Plate 1000m
GUN CASE won three on end before he upped the ante and was sent down the straight 1000m at Flemington where he got lost and ran ninth on August 6. Better suited back around a bend.
MY POPPETTE is a Group 3 Victorian winning filly who is far better suited back here than she was when running 11th in the Group 2 Dane Ripper at Eagle Farm in June. Can go well fresh.

R6 3.30pm Ladbrokes Up For The Challenge Handicap 1600m
GRAND DREAMER (Next Best Bet) was an impressive winner at Moonee Valley over 1600m on August 20. Top jockey Dwayne Dunn is staying on board and he looks to be one of the main chances in a competitive field
MAGICUS will find the competition deep here but he ran a solid fifth as a $3.30 favourite over 1200m at Moonee Valley on August 20. He should be able to find a good position and get a cosy run. Makes claims.
VOLCANIC ASH did not stop chasing and though he was outgunned by the winner Great Esteem, he fought hard all the way to the line running fourth over 1600m at Caulfield on August 13. Most honest.
MAGIC CONSUL lost no admirers when he chased hard to try to run down Great Esteem, finishing second over 1600m behind the leader at Caulfield on August 13. He is again a fighting chance but the gate (12) is no help.
SELECTIONS: No12 GRAND DREAMER, No9 Magicus, No8 Volcanic Ash, No7 Magic Consol. VALUE RUNNER: No7 Magic Consol.
