No3 COSMIC POWERS (BEST BET) was ridden to a pretty first up by Shinn. She was cuddled for too long and Sebring Express got the momentum. It was too late by the time Shinn realized. She should be much fitter now second up and looks hard to beat again.
No7 JAYAQUA has trialed quite well coming into the fresh run and should run well.
No6 MOSSMAN GORGE has been gelded coming into the second preparation and is a big market watch.
No1 EXCLAMATION is a nice enough horse, but the winning post seemed to scare last time.
VALUE RUNNER: No6 MOSSMAN GORGE
No2 EXPLOSIVE MISSILE has been trialing the house down coming into the debut run and looks hard to beat.
No3 PRIVILY has improved with each trial before the debut run and looks hard to beat.
No7 ALL TOO GOOD (BEST ROUGHIE) comes out of a good run on debut and should improve on the track here after a good trial.
No10 TEODOSIO comes out of a solid race on debut and should be improved fitness-wise.
VALUE RUNNER: No7 ALL TOO GOOD
No8 COULTHARD (NEXT BEST) resumes from a break here and has been gelded coming into this second preparation. Harron and Snowden must have an opinion of this horse, given that he is a gelding and still in the stable as they are all about stallions. The trials have been good and he looks a carnival horse.
No2 PURE REBEL has been good in all runs this time in and should run well again.
No1 BOLORD drops well in grade here and wasn’t too bad last start.
No6 VALKNUT won well with a big weight at Warren upon resumption and should run well again second up.
VALUE RUNNER: No1 BOLORD
SCRATCHED No6 MEROVEE
SCRATCHED No1 AUGUSTUS
VALUE RUNNER: No11 SEABABE
No2 YEAH BRAVO
No8 GRACIOUS GREY
SCRATCHED No1 LUNAR SPIN
No3 BON EQUUS
VALUE RUNNER: No8 GRACIOUS GREY
SCRATCHED No8 TAHSIN should be well suited stepping up in trip second up and looks to be a nice horse.
No5 CHAVISH just missed last start and looks set to peak here.
No4 COOLCRAFT won the Chavish race well last start and should run well yet again here.
SCRATCHED No13 ONSLAUGHT was $6 - $14 last start and still ran on quite well for fourth and this is a drop in grade.
VALUE RUNNER: No4 COOLCRAFT
