Rail Position: out 3 metres entire course.
Track Condition: Dead 4
Factors: Looks a tough day, many chances in most races, few shorties look way unders. Ric McMahon to fight out jockey challenge with Mick Cahill, but McMahon value at $4.50. Best bet - Mukaddamah Son (race 2), best each-way - King Ludwig (Race 6), lay of the day - I Get Around (Race 5).
Give It Away ran well on debut, sure to be improved. Voodoo Blue Magic racing well, wins have been on heavy tracks. Octane Flyer showed ability before a break, nice effort in Sydney when resuming.
Navelina will appreciate this trip.
Numbers: 1, 12, 10, 2.
Mukaddahma Son won well last start with big impost, harder here, but nice weight drop. Count Encosta always around the money, chance again.
Numbers: 4x, 2, 6, 3.
Tail And All was racing well before a break, trialled okay, but might need a run or two. The White Hope resumes, not knocked around EF trial, has ability, but short odds not enticing. Memorable Moment raced well when resuming, up in weight. Time To Plunder should be close to peak, big track suits.
Numbers: 6ew, 3, 1, 9.
Black Magic good winner latest, in money one in five this track. Gatineau River failed in wet latest, can improve here. Flying Jet resumes, goes well fresh and looks nicely placed. Alcancia been around the money, should be hitting the line.
Numbers: 2, 9, 6, 5.
I Get Around has good record down south, but company not that strong, no value. G’day Old Mate drops in grade, but rises steeply at the weights. Double Image disappointed when resuming, improvement would not surprise over extra trip. Emmalene resumes, classy.
Numbers: 6, 5, 3, 1.
Dienekes on pace runner, in well with claim. Full Blast should race on the bunny, consistent without winning many. All My Angels has run two good races, should be in the mix again. King Ludwig had no luck last start when ran on well.
Numbers: 13, 10 , 3, 15.
Adebisi is very well weighted here and should be too good after great run in Grp 1. Steel Zip usually races well fresh. Signified and River Lad racing in good form, this is tough test.
Numbers: 1, 10, 4, 3.
Congo disappointed last start, looks better suited here. Accidental made up ground and just beaten latest by Little Long Horn. Offense fitter for two runs, likely improver. Claim helps Holy Toledo, racing well.
