BEST BET: Race 7 No 9 MYSTIFIED
The drop back in grade is the key here today as it was very competitive in a tougher class race on this track last start. Settled near the speed to be beaten by less the two lengths. Huge run two starts back at Flemington when missing by half a length in the AR Creswick Final beaten by Highland beat. Hard to go past, the one to beat!
QUADDIE PICKS (races 5-6-7-8):
3,5,6,11 – 1,3,6,9 – 188.8.131.52 – 1,4,6,11
No5 TRANSFIXED Won well by 4.8 lengths last start over the hurdles and will look to produce a similar effort which will see him go close to winning again. Settled near the rear before storming home last start to win with ease. The one to beat.
No2 ABOUT THE JOURNEY
No1 BOLD ZAMOUR
No2 EL DESPERADO Trialed well leading into into her debut when finishing down the track beaten by three lengths. Will strip fitter second up and she does drops down in grade here today. Hard to go past in this small field.
No6 SHERA KHAN
No1 SUPREME POLARITY Huge run when returning from a spell when storming home late to miss by half a length. Huge run! Has won second up before and will strip fitter here today. Extra 200 meters will suit so watch for it storming home down the outside. Big chance.
No9 MISS JANE
No4 SUDDEN WEALTH
No2 HASTA LA GORBY
No1 BALFS CHOICE Flying of late winning its last three starts and ready to make it four on the trot. Will settle near the rear but watch for it powering home. Hard to go past on its current form. Top hope.
No2 SANDHILL WARRIOR
No6 LONDON FOG
No5 THE WILLYBE Good run at Sandown last start in a slightly tougher race so this grade should suit and the inside draw is very handy. The distance is no issue as its won over 2100 meters across the Tasman last preparation. Will be in this for a long way.
No6 RING DOOR REGGIE
No3 WELCOME NED
No6 GROOVE WITH ME Up in grade but is holding its form well which included a strong 2 length victory at Gawler two starts back. Unbeaten over the distance and placed at the track. Good chance in an open event.
