I AM A STAR comes into this race with strong form at the elite level. She worked hard at $21 to run a strong second in the Group 1 Thousand Guineas (1600m) here on October 8. She has Steven King staying on board and she rates as the one to beat on exposed form.
LA LUNA ROSSA had no luck when running eighth in the Group 1 Thousand Guineas (1600m) at Caulfield on October 8. Mark Zahra replaces the suspended Damien Oliver and this New Zealand filly looms as a strong chance here.
SEZANNE has the excellent record of two wins, two seconds and a third at seven starts. She ran a great third in the Group 1 Flight Stakes (1600m) at Randwick at her last start on October 1. Hugh Bowman replaces James McDonald and will lack nothing in horsemanship from a wide alley (15).
EXOCET was caught up in a traffic jam and finished off her race well to run eighth in the Group 2 Edward Manifold (1600m) at Flemington on October 2. She has the services of the in-form Dwayne Dunn and respect.
SELECTIONS: No1 I AM A STAR, No2 La Luna Rossa, No3 Sezanne, No5 Exocet.
VALUE RUNNER: No5 Exocet.
