Next Best Bet: R2 – 7. PURE ELATION
Best Roughie: R7 – 4. ROMAN SON
No1 ADANA (BEST BET) looks to be well sit up to win this race at start two and could well go onto the sires next weekend if he was to win this. The form out of the debut should be quite good, and the trial since has been good enough.
No10 SHINJU has been trialing well coming into this and with the blinkers on for the debut.
No3 ALTAIR gets Bowman here over the other Waller horses and gets a good run on the map from gate 2.
No6 MOMENTUM FACTOR comes out of what is a good race last start and should run well here.
VALUE RUNNER: No10 SHINJU
No7 PURE ELATION (NEXT BEST BET) brings Golden Slipper form to win this, getting so close to Estijaab last start in the Reisling when making her run up the wrong part of the track. She gets a better barrier here (11) and should be too good back to 1100m.
No5 GODODDIN comes out of a very good race on debut and has trialed well coming into the fresh run.
No2 BOLD ARIAL brings solid enough form to this race with runs around Fiesta and Aylmerton.
No10 VITESSE gets a quiet run just in behind the speed here and has trialled well.
VALUE RUNNER: No2 BOLD ARIAL
No8 ICON OF DUBAI was a strong winner fresh at Kembla and should be much fitter for that run and be hard to beat here as he has come back well.
No6 THY KINGDOM COME got a kill fresh in what was a weak race and will be much improved second-up.
No5 SEAWAY resumes here and is a very nice horse, he may be on his way to a Queensland campaign.
No2 SPARKY LAD brings good form to this from the end of summer and has been trialing well.
VALUE RUNNER: No5 SEAWAY
No2 TAMARACK gets up to 2400m which looks to be much suitable and I don’t think the form out of the past two should be good enough.
No3 MAZAZ backs up quickly and should be happier out to the 2400m yet again.
No4 LETTER TO JULIETTE made a long run last start and was only run down late and should run well here.
No8 JUST KEEP GIVING comes out of what is an ok enough race last start and can run well again here.
VALUE RUNNER: No4 LETTER TO JULIETTE
No4 VELLOR was a good winner last start at the provincials and that form should hold up well enough here.
No2 ARTEMIS ROSE looks set to peak third-up from a spell and was beaten in a driving finish last start.
No7 RESIN was a good winner last start and Dinnigan has since won and the form has held up well. She is a brilliant bred filly.
No1 I AM POPPY comes across from NZ and has been trialing in good order coming into this and should run well.
VALUE RUNNER: No4 VELLOR
No6 IN TIMES OF WAR resumes here and I can’t believe I’m tipping her, but she has trialled brilliantly and brings some fantastic form to this.
No7 TREKKING gets one last chance here after a big run fresh in what has proven to be a good race.
No4 SPENDING TO WIN found the line well at Canberra last start in a fast run race and should run well here.
No1 LAKE LUGARNO comes out of the same race last start as Spending To Win and gets Bowman here and will be hard to catch.
VALUE RUNNER: No4 SPENDING TO WIN
No1 TIP TOP was too big and strong for them last start, up to the mile shouldn’t be an issue whatsoever and she should be too strong.
No3 OUR MANTRA was a good winner with the big weight last start, staying at the mile suits and he should run well.
No4 ROMAN SUN (BEST ROUGHIE) charged through the line fresh and getting up to the 1600m second-up is ideal.
No7 SONDELON was a good winner in the two races that he has run in, and he should step up to midweek level good enough.
VALUE RUNNER: No4 ROMAN SUN
No14 KEYMASTER trotted in last start at Bathurst and the form out of that race has held up well enough.
No12 CUBA found the line well enough fresh and should improve into the prep as Thompson horses always do.
No7 ART OF EXCELLENCE should run well enough fresh here after a good trial in slick time and he has a good fresh record.
No6 VINCERO pulled up with an issue fresh and has trialed well since and should run well here at home.
VALUE RUNNER: No14 KEYMASTER
