Arrowfield Classic day at Kembla Grange here, this rave is always a pointer to the Oaks and is one that produces many winners throughout. Outside that we have William Buick who is here for a stint with Godolphin. Pretty sure he hasn’t ridden at Kembla. The track is currently heavy, but may get to soft and the rail is true.

NO 2 ANCIENT HISTORY (Best Bet) Going to take the punt and make this import the best of the day, the trials have been good enough and his form overseas has been good enough for a race like this.

NO 3 LIFE O’BRIEN Closed off well first-up and the step up suits.
VALUE RUNNER: NO 8 KRUSTY
NO 4 SAXAPHONE (Next Best Bet) Has good wet track stats and was just touched off in a hot maiden last start. Gets Buick and has to be hard to beat here.
