Numbers: 3, 9, 5, 2.
General Exhibit resumes, trialled well and races well this track. Rocky King led and was impressive winner last start. Seek And Find also fitter for one run back.
Numbers: 2, 7, 6, 1.
Cataloni should be close to peak now, latest effort hit the line well. Volkhere is honest and better placed here with claim, looks the one to beat. Maling consistent and should be thereabouts again. Save The Star far from disgraced latest, lightweight hope.
Numbers: 1x, 5, 3, 13.
Missy Longstocking is the class runner, wide alley a slight concern, but at best could sit three wide and beat these. Enquare should make up the quinella.
Numbers: 1x, 2, 5, 4.
Padrino is on speed runner racing well. Hot Saga in money 10 of 14 up north, toughest test, but deserves respect. Flamboyer turned in super effort latest when first run in a month, will go forward from wide gate and take running down. Miss Husson always around the money and should be running on, lie stablemate Kalandula. Amexed hit the line well latest.
Numbers: 3ew, 10, 15, 9.
Hampden led and battled on latest, blinkers off here. Renewed Vitality fitter for first-up run, this trips suits, likely improver. Stablemates Congo and The White Hope, the latter the better horse and has good second-up record. Jopa up in grade, no weight and should be getting home hard.
Numbers: 7, 2, 6, 8/13.
Tough race. Famous Seamus up to these, but wide alley from this start makes it very tough. Benny's Buttons and Facile Tigre fitter for one run back and both go well second-up. Doubtfilly made up plenty of ground against own sex latest. Audacious Spirit knocked up when resuming, likely improver. Delago Bolt gets back, but should be suited by hot tempo and meets Famous Seamus much better at weights on Flemington run.
Numbers: 5, 6, 15, 2.
Qfighter down in grade after disappointing first-up run when raced ungenerously, can improve, but short odds not attractive. Peace Talks likes it longer, but if bias favours run on, could be one for exotics. Viking Hearts goes well here and another that will be running on. Love Rocks led and won well latest, looks the one to beat again.
Numbers: 14, 11, 7, 16.
