No3 TIME OUT OF MIND dominant winner on debut and then found the Inglis Sprint a bridge too far at his second start, the trials have been good.
No4 UPTOWN LAD has been quite good at the trials coming into this, form from last prep quite good.
No2 HAV A NIP should find this a touch easier than the races he has run in so far this campaign and has his chance.
No1 NERETVA looks to be next best here.
VALUE RUNNER: No2 HAV A NIP
No8 RISEN (BEST ROUGHIE) has trialled well on two occasions leading into this, we may get a better price due to it coming from Gary Moore’s yard.
No4 DELUXE ROCKER has done what Gai horses do at the trials – jump and run, he looks a ready-made 2yo and is hard to beat.
No13 TOUCH OF MINK is well bred and has trialled well coming into this, Smith has his team going well and they are presenting well in the yard.
No2 HIGH DIVE comes out of what looks to be a good race at Hawkesbury and the form should hold up.
VALUE RUNNER: No8 RISEN
No7 SO YOU MERGE
No3 NIGHT MANAGER
VALUE RUNNER: No7 SO YOU MERG

No8 TILLY’S WALTZ
No1 ASKED TO LEAVE

No5 STREET PURSUIT (BEST BET) has trialled in imposing fashion coming into this first-up run here. The debut run has held up quite strong form wise and although he was beaten eighth-lengths there, he ran a quick late sectional. With the blinkers on he will be sharper here.
No6 QUATTRO FOGILE comes out of a good debut race and hasn’t trialled leading into this with a slot of gear changes, watch the market.
No7 JAWDAA comes out of a good debut race and has trialled well enough coming into this.
No4 MOKI is ready to breakthrough and has been running quite well as of late and has a chance here.
VALUE RUNNER: No6 QUATTRO FOGILE
No2 OVER THE AIR
No11 NOT TO BE CAUGHT
VALUE RUNNER: No7 SULIEN
No6 TEST THE WORLD (NEXT BEST BET) has legitimate group form around her and looks well set up for a fresh kill here, she was brilliant on debut before going to town and just getting rolled twice and had Invincible Gem around her! The trial was brilliant and she should win.
No5 SOVEREIGN EMINENCE resumed well enough at Wyong in a good race and should be improved.
No8 STRIKE FOR VICTORY finished off well fresh at Scone and ran a really good sectional late, she will be finishing off strong.
No1 FIFTY WAYS has been trialing up well enough to have a chance here.
VALUE RUNNER: No5 SOVEREIGN EMINENCE
