SLUMBER PARTY (NEXT BEST BET) resumes here and was the winner of both her trials leading into her return to racing. She placed in the Gimcrack and BJ McLachlan as a two-year-old, with her only unplaced run coming in the Magic Millions. From barrier (6) with Kerrin McEvoy on-board she looks very hard to beat first-up.
SELECTIONS: No4 SLUMBER PARTY, No2 Eckstein, No3 In Times Of War, No7 Zonk
VALUE RUNNER: No5 Sweet Adaline
PALLADIAN has been a runner-up in three from four. The second to Niccolance at Rosehill looks good enough form after last Saturday's racing. Right in this with the advantage of the inside gate.
MISSILE STRIKE was a runner-up at Canterbury two runs back and wasn't far from the winner at Warwick Farm last start. The slightly shorter journey gives him the chance to win a race.
RAIDEN finished on the placegetters’ heels at Rosehill on debut. Rates a place chance with natural improvement.
SILVERWIN placed in two of his three trials at Randwick, racing handily on each occasion. Looking for a market lead on race day from an ideal gate.
SELECTIONS: No4 PALLADIAN, No3 Missile Strike, No5 Raiden, No6 Silverwin
VALUE RUNNER: No7 Weston
FUEL has won two from six and was close-up at Rosehill when resuming after covering ground in the run. Right in the mix with being fitter and second-up from an inside gate.
QUANTRILL has won two from six and was close-up at Rosehill when resuming after covering ground in the run. Right in the mix fitter second-up and from an inside gate.
PUMPKIN PIE is unbeaten in two country runs. Significant step up in grade but hard to knock the winning form.
FIFTY WAYS finished on the placegetters’ heels at Warwick Farm when resuming. Gosford winner only run in her first preparation and rates a place chance with being fitter second-up.
SELECTIONS: No6 FUEL, No3 Quantrill, No11 Pumpkin Pie, No8 Fifty Ways.
VALUE RUNNER: No8 Fifty Ways
ALLISION (BEST BET) won successive races at Gosford and Canterbury earlier this preparation. From barrier (2), she should get a lovely run through the early stages and get her opportunity at them late. She wasn't far from the winner here last start and the 2kg weight turnaround should see her turn the tables.
SELECTIONS: No4 ALLISION, No2 Balboa Park, No1 Doc Holliday, No5 Don Pellegrino
VALUE RUNNER: No1 Doc Holliday
DREAMFORCE has had two wins and two placings from four starts to date. Defeated a subsequent winner at Kembla when resuming and right up to winning this from a good gate.
GALAXY WARRIOR is putting together an excellent record with four wins and two placings from seven starts. Up 3kg for winning at this track and distance last start, but still one of the major players.
LUCKY FISH appreciated the drier track with a much-improved run at Rosehill last start. This is easier and gets his chance to return to the winner's list on top of the ground again.
LIAPARI former New Zealander having first Australian start. Has form around Dubaiinstyle in NZ so a definite market watch here.
SELECTIONS: No2 DREAMFORCE, No3 Galaxy Warrior, No6 Lucky Fish, No5 Liapari
VALUE RUNNER: No5 Liapari
SWEET REDEMPTION resumes after being the winner of both trials leading into this. Won two races last preparation and was Group 3 placed. Looks set for a first-up win.
BELLA GALEANO (Best Roughie) hit the line strongly when runner-up at Hawkesbury when resuming and the winner has since won again. Fitter second-up and worth including in the wider exotics.
AIR APPARENT resumes for new stable and should be fit enough after three trials. Finished on the placegetters’ heels at Sandown last time in and has to be respected here fresh.
NASSAK has won two from three, including an all-the-way win at Kembla last start. Well beaten only city run to date but still scope for improvement.
SELECTIONS: No1 SWEET REDEMPTION, No4 Bella Galeano, No6 Air Apparent
VALUE RUNNER: No4 Bella Galeano
NEW TIPPERARY has won three from six. Wasn't far from the winner at Rosehill when resuming and the extra distance is a plus.
MONTAUK finished his race off nicely at Rosehill when resuming. Fitter second-up and suited stepping up to the mile.
POWER OF PATCH placed at Warwick Farm when resuming. Fitter second-up and is a winner at the mile. Right in the mix.
ZOURKHAN had a chequered path in the straight here when resuming last start. Rates as one of the key chances here with the first-up run under his belt.
SELECTIONS: No3 NEW TIPPERARY, No2 Montauk, No6 Power Of Patch, No4 Zourkhan
VALUE RUNNER: No3 New Tipperary
YUMA DESERT won three on the trot last preparation. Just a run short at Rosehill when resuming and was run down late. The one to beat fitter second-up.
KENTUCKY MISS chasing back-to-back victories after winning a Stakes race at Flemington last start. 32-days between runs but has won a trial in the interim. Right in the mix again.
UPSCALE defeated a subsequent winner when resuming at this track and distance last start. Drops 2kg and nothing to suggest she cannot win again.
FAITH'S ENCORE is unbeaten in two runs at Warwick Farm and chasing back-to-back wins. Back slightly in distance but still the one to beat.
SELECTIONS: No2 YUMA DESERT, No9 Kentucky Miss, No10 Upscale, No11 Faith’s Encore
VALUE RUNNER: No6 Petrossian
