No3 KAONIC (BEST BET) looks to be a very nice horse in the making, the debut run at Warwick Farm was outstanding, he got a long way back and savaged the line there. He looks to be in the mould of Kermadec/Comin Through and probably ends up in the Carbine Club if he wins this.
No6 UNION DUES was quite good at the first start in Sydney and the race should hold up well.
No5 SMILING MANOLITO was very good on debut at Newcastle. The step to 1550m suits here.
No7 WILD ABOUT HER has been going well enough as of late and is a place hope.
VALUE RUNNER: No5 SMILING MANOLIT
No1 DORTMUND drops back in grade after a solid enough run when fav last week. The step up in trip suits here and he gets all on pace favors.
No5 INTUERI was ok enough fresh behind Malahat last start, the race has stood up well. With the blinkers on here he should improve.
No6 MATE STORY is a good young stayer who won well first-up. He can only improve off that and looks hard to beat again.
No3 CARLUCA comes out of a good race last start and looks to be next best here.
VALUE RUNNER: No6 MATE STORY
No6 BULL MARKET looks to have trialled well coming into the fresh run here. He may want a touch further in time, but is a nice type.
No8 BELLA SUCCESS (BEST ROUGHIE) has been going quite well this time in without much luck. Shinn on board, she should go well here.
No4 RENEWAL won in good style on debut and gets a perfect run from gate 1 here and will be in the finish.
No5 ZA ZI BA has been going very well this time in and looks to be a filly of some promise, the win last week was good.
VALUE RUNNER: No8 BELLA SUCCESS
No4 HISTORY REPEATS walked in as we all expected her to do last start. Up to the 1900m isn’t going to be an issue at all and she looks hard to beat.
No5 MIDNIGHT DELIGHT backs up quickly here and didn’t have the best the luck last week.
No3 TOKEN OF LOVE brings good form to this and will run on again quite well again and she only has the 54kg after the claim.
No6 KIRINI was good enough fresh and the step up to 1900m now suits her.
VALUE RUNNER: No6 KIRINI
No4 STONEBROOOK won in good fashion first-up from a spell and had a lot of improvement to come from that. He ran time that day and looks hard to beat.
No3 MARSUPIAL gets Bowman on board here and has been very good in both runs this time in, he may be looking for further now but goes well.
No1 OUR ROYAL EGYPTIAN has been in good form this time in and gets a good jockey change here with KMac on board.
No7 CRITICAL TOUCH won well last start at Canberra and gets good weight relief after the claim.
VALUE RUNNER: No1 OUR ROYAL EGYPTIAN
No6 KHAN (NEXT BEST BET) looks to have come back well this time in, he just never looked right last preparation and it’s why the Slipper plans were abandoned. He comes through some super form races. Gets a great run just behind the speed and could well blow them away here.
SCRATCHED No11 BEACON won in good fashion last start with a good jockey change and should run well again.
No5 WHITE MOSS was brilliant last time in winning three in a row. She has trialled well and could run well.
SCRATCHED No7 PARLAY VOUS is going well enough as of late and won a weak race last start.
VALUE RUNNER: No5 WHITE MOSS
No5 SLOW BURN has trialled up in awesome fashion coming into the resumption here. If he runs to his trials he will win, simple as that. Group class horse.
No1 MISSILE CODA drops back in grade here and will jump and run them along here and try to give them no chance.
No9 ACQUME drops well in grade here after taking on Alizee last start and wasn’t up to that level, she runs well here.
SCRATCHED No11 ZONK has trialled well enough coming into this and should run well fresh if she runs here.
VALUE RUNNER: No9 ACQUME
SCRATCHED No7 SAVAPINSKI has won the last two quite well and the step up in trip shouldn’t be an issue and looks hard to beat again.
No1 ESTIKHRAAJ goes brilliantly at Canterbury and saves his best for this trip. From gate 12 Bowman will need some luck however.
No3 ZAUNKONIG comes back from a good race last start where the form has held up well. Back to midweeks is suitable.
SCRATCHED No8 STATIC LIFT has been close up at the last two and finds a winnable race here.
VALUE RUNNER: No8 STATIC LIFT
