KAEPERNICK comes up as the (NEXT BEST) here after he was awesome when a mile off them in the Lightning. He drops massively in grade here and if he is able to sit a touch closer in the run, he is more than able to close them down. Jennings had the ride on him last start and should only benefit from that experience.
CRAFTINESS has a good second-up record and has trialled well between runs and has to be given a chance from the good gate.
KURO if at his best is well worth a chance here. He has shown he is well above average in the past, it’s a case of whether he wants to show it or not which is the problem.
BACHMAN resumes here after a good preparation without winning, he has an imposing record and must be respected.
SELECTIONS: No 2 KAEPERNICK, No 6 Craftiness, No 8 Kuro, No 9 Bachman.
VALUE RUNNER: No 9 Bachman.
