Rail Position: 1 metre entire course.
Track: Good 3.
Factors: Small fields the order of the day and will make for interesting tactical battles. Best Bet: Vienna Royale (Race 2). Best Value: Arado (Race 4). No Value: Hallside Rose (Race 6).
Two-year-old fillies start their career here. Three trial winners here, Totally Sure, Aimee and Grapevine, early money for Totally Sure, Grapevine ran best time. Totally Sure has tough task from wide gate.
Numbers: 4, 9, 1, 7.
Second division, colts and geldings. Guesswork for several, but Vienna Royale trialled brilliantly and won by big margin. Is the one to beat if runs up to that.
Numbers: 10x, 5, 2, 7.
Small but class field. Magic In Motion rises steeply in weights and on quick back-up. Write Cheek ran on well latest, looks suited here. Anna Lizzie scored well first-up when finished off strongly. Small field here surprisingly could work against her. Pickabee overcame difficulties to win last start.
Numbers: 2, 3, 5, 1.
Tongue tie off Regular is interesting gear change, up a while now, but honest. Theft should lead and give them something to catch, trip a big query. Arado better suited this trip, close to peak now. Billy Aucash should be suited by expected speed.
Numbers: 6ew, 5, 2, 4.
Most of the regulars are back to do battle. Mukaddamah Son is super consistent and carries weight. Raeburn is close to another win. Claim helps Maling and Sam's Town will appreciate this trip.
Numbers: 1, 3, 4, 2.
Queen Of The Lochs in the money all three starts, should be thereabouts again. Friendly Dragon ran on well from the rear latest, can run a big race if can be closer on the turn. Londehero won well when resuming, in the mix again. Hallside Rose resumes and deserves respect on form before a spell.
Numbers: 2, 6, 5, 4.
Elusive King far from disgraced last start, fitter for two runs. Dolly Dolly up in grade after first-up win, well weighted again with claim. Elmantosh up in grade after impressive win, has ability and this not overly strong. Listen Son up to a mile, should race on the speed. Muhaajir is nearing peak, chance here.
Numbers: 7, 9, 5, 8.
Hard to line a few of these up. Bahsa mixes form, winner here and good draw, can improve. Quick's The Word has been racing well in Sydney. Spot The Rock has had two runs from a break, races well this track. Urgent Bells hit the line well Newcastle last start.
Numbers: 3, 9, 8, 1.
