No4 EL DORADO MINE gets a soft run of it here just behind the speed for Collett and looks set to peak third-up.
No1 GRAND FINALIST has been disappointing at the last two starts when odds on and he gets one last chance here.
No2 OROKONUI won well on debut and finds a good race to tackle here second-up.
VALUE RUNNER: No4 EL DORARDO MINE
No4 CRIMSON HALO has been going quite well in recent times and looks to have found that winning edge again.
No5 HUANG YAOSHI broke the maiden in good fashion last start and looks a horse on the way up.
No2 CONCESSIONS has been going well enough this time in and finds a winnable race.
No1 ANTHONY’S BEST drops in grade and distance here and should run well again.
VALUE RUNNER: No2 CONCESSIONS
No7 POETIC CHARMER (BEST BET) should be winning this race the way he found the line when fresh. He comes out of some very good form last time in as well and the step up to 1300m here should be suitable, Shinn riding on a Sunday should be noted.
No9 LAUSSEL was quite good on debut in a solid race and should run well.
No6 HIGH POWER has been trialing well coming into this and should run well.
No3 COOL ONE should run well on the home track first-up from a spell.
VALUE RUNNER: No3 COOL ONE
No2 DYNAMIC BID (BEST ROUGHIE) has been going quite well this time in and gets a run to sit just in behind them here and looks hard to beat.
No1 MALAIGO was quite good when winning first-up in fast time at Kembla and should run well again.
No7 DREAMY BELLE won well on debut at Scone and while this is a step up she should run well.
No3 IRONHEART looks to be next best here.
VALUE RUNNER: No2 DYNAMIC BID
No4 MELIBOEA (NEXT BEST BET) finds as weak a race that she has run in over her career. The two trials coming in have been nothing short of fantastic and we see Shinn with only a few rides here from barrier 4 she sits just behind the speed here and should be too strong late.
No1 GOOD AS DONE has been doing a good job at the trials coming in and should run well.
No5 SMITH was quite good on debut and should run well.
No7 MISS ANTARES comes out of a good race on debut and has trialled well.
VALUE RUNNER: No5 SMITH
No3 KRYSTAL has been good in both runs this time in and the 1600m should be much more suitable.
No2 WALLANGARRA gets out to a trip which is much more suitable here and second-up in Australia should run well.
No6 COOL DUDE comes out of a good race last start and quickly stepping up to 1600m here looks suitable.
No8 ALL TOO GOOD has been running as if this trip would be suitable and should run well.
VALUE RUNNER: No6 COOL DUDE
No1 OUR BELISA was quite good first-up in a race which has held up quite well form wise and should run well again.
No2 SOIREE won well last start and the two trials coming in have been fantastic and she looks well set.
No8 PERSIA won the maiden well last start and could well be a horse who is Oaks-bound off her breeding.
No5 CONCISELY is a get back run on horse who has been going ok enough and should run on again.
VALUE RUNNER: No5 CONCISELY
No7 UNDAUNTED looks to jump and run them along here. He finds a weak race and when Hippo gets in front, good luck stopping him.
No2 ITASCA has been going quite well as of late and at home looks hard to beat.
No4 CHAYANNE just missed last start at Kembla and looks to get a good run on the map here.
No6 MOMENTUM TO WIN has been going quite well as of late and the 2000m should not be an issue here.
VALUE RUNNER: No4 CHAYANNE
