Track: Dead 5.
Factors: Rain affected track will assist some runners after a run of hard tracks. Best Bet: Anna Lizzie (Race 6). Best Value: Triskele (Race 5). No Value: Trajet (Race 2). Jockey Challenge: Ric McMahon ($1.90), overs - Chris Munce ($4.60).
Totally Sure should beat these on first start, when narrowly beaten. I'm Alone won Gold Coast trial in good fashion.
Numbers: 5, 3.
Claim and sting out of the track will help Mukaddamah Son. Dead going also a help for Break The Ice. Borehole should lead and will be hard to run down. Trajet in the mix.
Numbers: 1, 5, 7, 2.
Belltone beaten just under five lengths in Group 1 latest, claim helps. stablemate Signified is consistent with placings last two. Pellegrini is nice horse resuming from a break, trialled okay, but may need this. Miss Imagica backs up, drops in weight, could take catching.
Numbers: 1, 4, 3, 7.
Whiskey Allround returns after short Melbourne campaign, looks the one to beat. Octane Flyer resumes, has ability, watch betting. Enquare ran some nice races over winter carnival, resumes and pay to respect.
Numbers: 2, 5, 3, 4.
Tough race. Aldini disappointed last start, can improve this track. Triskele up in grade, but nice weight drop and should be close to peak. Theft fought on well last start, drop back in a distance a plus, weight and bad alley a big concern.
Numbers: 9ew, 5, 1, 6.
Anna Lizzie had no luck latest when too far back, when bias made it hard to make ground. she is beautifully placed here, should get all the favours and be too good.
Numbers: 6x, 5, 3, 8.
Regular is well named, goes around again and in with a chance, but should be looking for the paddock soon. Magic In Motion disappointed latest, fourth jockey change here in as many starts. Elmantosh trapped deep latest and fought on, looks the one to beat. Sir Knox races well here and sting out of track a bonus. Falino won well latest, query at the 1600m.
Numbers: 10, 8, 11, 9.
Rocky King fitter for first-up run, has good second-up record. Cape Kidnappers class runner has had issues (six-year-old/eight starts) but sting out will help and goes super first-up.
Numbers: 1, 3, 6, 5.
