THEANSWERMYFRIEND absolutely lambasted his rivals careering away to a 1 ½ length win over 1600m at Caulfield on October 12. He looks like the step up in distance here won’t be an issue and he has the red hot Dwayne Dunn replacing Chris Parnham in his chase for a Black Type here.
PRETTY PUNK looked super impressive in posting a big win over 1800m at Morphettville last start on October 8. He was steady throughout betting at $6.50 and has a superior draw in (7) here and will carry only 56kg. He makes strong appeal.
NEMRUD will be better here after tearing home to run second to Moqueen over 1600m at Randwick on October 1. Godolphin’s top rider James McDonald goes on board for his Victorian assault here and will be right in the mix.
ZOFFMAN looms as one of the chances here. He scored a brilliant 2 ¼ length win on a Heavy 9 in a maiden at Warrnambool on October 5. Dean Yendall keeps the ride and he will be again fancied after being at $2.90 last start. This is harder, but would respect.
SELECTIONS: No1 THEANSWERMYFRIEND, No2 Pretty Punk, No4 Nemrud, No9 Zoffman.
VALUE RUNNER: No9 Zoffman.
