Liked the way CHARM OFFENSIVE chased when just missing the placings, finishing 1.2 lengths behind Tough Larry at Kensington Randwick (Kensington) last start. Go on his narrow defeat two starts back when beaten by half a length at Hawkesbury. Rates well and is a key player.
1st: No1 CHARM OFFENSIVE 2nd: *SCRATCHED* No4 His Kingdom; 3rd: No8 Dapples 4th: No6 Blevio
NAI’A is out the astute Godolphin stable and will be ready to fire second-up here today. Chased hard when beaten by less than a length behind So Bizarre at Wyong when resuming from a spell a fortnight back. The winner has since run a cracking race behind the exciting Girl Tuesday. Looks to have found the right race here today. Major player.
1st: No4 NAI’A 2nd: No3 Cool And Neat; 3rd: No5 Twilighter; 4th: No9 Tudor Prince
Looking to make it successive victories, SEMPER FIDELIS is a clear top pick here today. Looked impressive when defeating Molly Malone by 2.2 lengths at Hawkesbury three weeks back and will be out to make it back-to-back wins. Has drawn to get the run of the race, will strip fitter second-up and could prove hard to beat. Top pick.
1st: No8 SEMPER FIDELIS 2nd: No6 Tycoon Mar; 3rd: *SCRATCHED* No2 Our Royal Egyptian 4th: No1 Speed Hero
CONCLUDER is an ultra-consistent gelding that’s drawn to get the run of the race and looms as a serious contender here today. Hasn’t won for over 42 weeks but always gives his all and looks to have found a very winnable race today. Stick with him.
1st: No2 CONCLUDER 2nd: No3 Four Excel; 3rd: No8 Cheering 4th: No7 Septimo
Hard to go past the lightly raced DANZIE in the final event of the program. Chased hard when finishing half a length behind the winner Dream I Can at Gosford in August and will be out to atone that defeat here today. Drawn well and sure to be very competitive once again.
1st: No5 DANZIE 2nd: No4 Rockafella; 3rd: No3 Weekend Affair 4th: No2 Falster
