No1 MONTREAL (BEST BET) resumes here from a long break and brings brilliant form to this race, he beat Improvement on debut running brilliant time, and then got a shocking ride from Tommy behind Pipeline and Bratislava. He has been gelded coming into his second preparation and has been trialing up well. I think he is a serious horse and will be winning.
No3 YEAS AND NAYS has been a touch disappointing in the career thus far, but should fill a hole here.
No4 FULL OF BEANS got the kill last start at the country level and finds a race to run well in.
No2 HE’S BLESSED is next best here.
VALUE RUNNER: No4 FULL OF BEANS
No5 SEINE NET (NEXT BEST BET) should be winning this race stepping up in distance to 2100m which looks to suit given her breeding, she was just touched off last start in what should be a solid form race. Avdulla going on is a big help here as he will lift her if need be, but she looks too good form them.
No6 MERICAN has been building well towards this and the step to 2100m looks to suit.
No3 GEEGEEAYE has been going ok enough at this distance range.
No1 EYOTA has won a race at least? 2100m?
VALUE RUNNER: No6 MERICAN
No2 TEAHUPO’O was quite good on debut, finding the line quite well. The step up to 1600m is much more suitable.
No5 ROYAL PATRIOT has been good in both starts for Martin and now steps up to the 1600m and should run well.
No3 ENLIGHTENED BOY has been warming up well in both starts late, and gets Angland on who is in great form.
No4 ICE EMPEROR looks to be next best here in the small field.
VALUE RUNNER: No5 ROYAL PATRIOT
No4 THRILLED ran into a nice horse last start and finished off quite well, the step to 1350m looks ideal and he gets one more chance.
No2 CHOICE HARVEST was strong though the line last start, and the step up to 1350m here suits.
No3 EMPEROR HARADA comes out of some strong maidens and ran super-fast time last start (32.99) for the last 600m.
No1 ART OF MORE has more ability than the record shows, and finds a weaker maiden.
VALUE RUNNER: No3 EMPEROR HARADA
No6 ZABEEL’S CHOICE has been trialing up very well coming into the debut run and looks to be a smart horse. 1200m on debut no issue here.
No5 SMART ENOUGH gets the winkers on for the debut run here and looks to have been trialing up well enough.
No4 CYBER INTERVENTION (BEST ROUGHIE) gets a soft run on the map here from barrier 1. The trials have been quite good.
No2 SPENCER resumes here and comes out of some solid enough races last time in.
VALUE RUNNER: No4 CYBER INTERVENTION
No2 INVINCIBLE GEORGE is quite a nice horse who has a good record over a short career, thus far. The win last start was quite strong. He is hard to beat here.
No3 FRANCESCO gets the tongue tie on for the first time here and has been trialing well coming in.
No5 LIVE TO DREAM was good enough first-up over a distance that didn’t suit. The step to 1350m here is a good next step.
No7 HAND FROM ABOVE is a new addition to the Waugh stable. Avdulla on from a soft gate, watch the betting.
VALUE RUNNER: No7 HAND FROM ABOVE
