No1 YARRAPOWER drops back from midweek level here and has been going quite well as of late. Avdulla jumps on and he rides Gosford brilliantly.
No3 NEVER OUT gets the tongue tie on for the first time here and that could explain the last start failure. I expect improvement here.
No4 MISS BUNNY HOP belted them at Scone last start, expect to see her jump and run again.
No2 SHARPSBURG should be much fitter for the first-up run and has a chance yet again.
VALUE RUNNER: No4 MISS BUNNY HOP
No3 ACQUME (BEST BET) comes out of one of the hottest maidens we have seen in recent times. Both second and fourth run in the coming days so we will have a good guide on the form by the time this filly goes around. She looks to be better than them and should win.
No5 TORVILL was an abject failure first-up. I don’t mind the form that she had in the first prep however.
No4 FURLANA comes out of a good race on debut and has trialled well coming in.
No6 MARIA VICTORIA has won both trials in nice fashion, the stable form is a worry however.
VALUE RUNNER: No5 TORVILL
No6 TUTU (BEST ROUGHIE) has been trialing up well coming into the fresh run, she won't be each-way odds, but deserves to be odds on.
No3 OUR ROYAL EGYPTIAN should be much fitter second-up and looks hard to beat here.
No4 STORM FORCE comes out of a good race fresh where the form has stacked up well.
No2 LONGREACH has been trialing in good order coming into the fresh run and has good form around.
VALUE RUNNER: No6 TUTU
No1 RAIDEN (NEXT BEST BET) was beaten at $1.28 fresh with some really good form around, and never looked like wining. This is a provincial and country only maiden all be it at Gosford. So it isn’t that strong a race. Big jockey change with Avdulla going on and he should be winning.
No4 OTTAMAE has been good in both runs and has a chance here at good odds.
No11 STAR BOLT wasn’t too bad last start and looks a place chance here.
No3 AYETEEM has been trialing well coming into the debut run and should run well.
VALUE RUNNER: No4 OTTAMAE
No6 WHISKEY THROTTLE
VALUE RUNNER: No1 ADDICTICRAFT
No3 MOUNT OMEI
No1 BON EQUUS
No7 STAR OF THE RING
No5 CROSSING GUARD
VALUE RUNNER: No7 STAR OF THE RING
