Rail: Out 4.5 metres entire course
Track: Good 3.
Factors: Rail out a fair way could have some bering, but will have to watch early races to check for bias. Best Bet: Whiskey Allround (Race 6). Best Value: Ticket To Dream (Race 4). No Value: Poste Restante (Race 1).
Mukaddamah Son had plenty of racing, but nice weight drop here. Epic Terra three weeks between runs and steps up to 2200m for the first time. Maling is racing well and nicely weighted with claim. Poste Restante proved costly last start well in, but just not convinced at the short odds.
Numbers: 3, 4, 5, 1.
I'm Alone the only runner with race experience and should be in the mix. Pinch River trialled well and one of the main chances on trial win.
Numbers: 6, 1, 4, 2.
Gold Cape was far from disgraced latest, will be running on. Write Cheek hit line okay latest, gives the impression 1600m will suit. Dannyme is honest, should get a nice run. Art Thou Ready was not far away Randwick last start, up to this. elmantosh will get back, but can pick them up at the end.
Numbers: 4, 9, 6, 5.
Leviosa freshened and back to right distance. Rare Ruby has ability and won well mid-week grade latest, but big step up here. Divine City honest and slight drop in weight a bonus, alley a worry. Ticket To Dream made up ground last start, one of the main chances again.
Numbers: 6ew, 10, 3, 12.
Tax Evader resumes, trialled brilliantly at Doomben and should be too good for these. Sinister Prince should give a sight and Lucky Sound may need this but has ability.
Numbers: 5, 8, 3, 6.
Octane Flyer knocked up last start, sure to be improved. Whiskey Allround will race handy, better than these should sit on the hammer of Sammi Jain.
Numbers: 1x, 4, 6, 13.
Belltone won well last start, even with claim weight catching up. Morning captain comes in well with 3kg claim and racing well. Vintage Moss disappointed latest, can improve. Falino better suited back to this trip. Signified is honest, bad alley a slight concern.
Numbers: 3, 6, 5, 10.
Tough race to finish on. Major Mike drawn poorly and up in grade, but should be hitting the line. Snippets Caviar ran good race latest, fitter, but will need luck from the drw. Karosse another coming off a win, drawn poorly. Dienekes always thereabouts. Jack's Back ran well here then easy kill in the bush, well in with claim.
Numbers: 1, 15, 13, 11.
