No2 QUEEN OF WANDS drops in grade here and comes back to 1600m which suits much better, hard to beat.
No4 BOB’S A DAZZLER absolutely trotted in last start carrying the big weight, no reason to drop off when dropping 5kgs here.
No8 OLTRE FINITO wasn’t too bad last start in an 80k race at Canterbury, he closed off well there and should run well.
No1 GLITRA found the line well last start and should appreciate the step up to the 1600m here.
VALUE RUNNER: No8 OLTRE FINITO
No3 TAPA (BEST ROUGHIE) resumes here and has some good form around her and should run well fresh.
No2 LATITUDE finally broke through last start and could go on with it now.
No9 DANISHKI has been in quite good form as of late, she gets a good run on the map and can settle closer in the run.
No12 JUST IMAGINE doesn’t have the best of records, but has been going well enough as of late.
VALUE RUNNER: No3 TAPA
No2 MAKES YOU THINK (NEXT BEST BET) did a very good job when winning on debut, when very well backed. The step up to 1200m should be much more suitable here and he gets a great run on the map and should be too strong.
No1 IGGY THE MOOCHER has the first start for the new stable here and has trialled well.
No3 PLECTRUM won in good style last start when breaking the maiden. 1200m may be a worry though.
No6 GENERAL NELSON has been in good enough form as of late and should be in the finish somewhere.
VALUE RUNNER: No6 GENERAL NELSON
No3 DANDY TOFF has been in solid enough form as of late and looks hard to beat here.
No10 OUR BOY BEN has trialled well between runs and has been in solid enough form this time in to go close.
No11 TYCOON ROSSA ran into a horse from Waller’s last start and was no match, that form should be good enough.
No5 LEDECKY gets good weight relief with the claim here, and has been in good form.
VALUE RUNNER: No11 TYCOON ROSSA
