As was the case with last week's juvenile races, betting moves will shed plenty of light on the likely outcome.
There are good reports beginning to surface for the ability of PINCH PASSION. He hasn't trialled officially but whispers are becoming noisier that he's a smart performer. If the money starts to flow for him, it will be worth following.
WICKED EXPRESS is from the Liam Birchley stable, who has a great record with juveniles. Apprentice Jimmy Orman has the mount and he hinted after riding Real Princess for the stable last week that there are several that are better performers, which ensures the focus will be kept on this colt.
PURE LUCK is a big, leggy type with a huge stride for a juvenile and scored in emphatic fashion at his only start at Toowoomba a fortnight ago. The filly he beat, Real Princess, won at Doomben last Saturday so the form has been franked. Race experience is a huge advantage for two-year-olds and he has it.
WIRRAWAY hasn't trialled publicly but trainer Kelso Wood has put the blinkers on for his first start, which indicates he's had a jump-out at some stage of his prep.
It's also worth keeping a close watch on the Tony Gollan-trained first starter SHE'S OUR STAR.
SELECTIONS: NO 7 PINCH PASSION, NO 8 WICKED EXPRESS, NO 1 PURE LUCK, NO 9 WIRRAWAY.
VALUE RUNNER: NO 9 WIRRAWAY.
