What a tough race. LUCKY VARIETY has to be considered after she ran a good 5th in what looks like being a very strong juvenile race last start. She was on debut that day and should strip wider and fitter. Better suited here.
ITHADTOBEZOU trialled like a star recently. Watch market as money will come for her.
SPICY HOTPOT was a game 3rd in a similar race when resuming. This is her 2nd start and should have improved a length or so.
This might just be the weakest fillies race ever to run in town. Nothing can win it!
BE LITTLE DARLIN’ did make up good ground when 4th in a recent trial. Has yet to race but does seem a trier.
FLYING STEP was placed at Bathurst last start at big odds which followed a 4th at Kembla at $71. at least is on the improve.
KIRISHI is yet to race or yet to show anything in any of her 4 trials to date, but, is with Chris Waller and Jay Mac rides so has to be considered.
Tip: FLYING STEP
Last prep EVER BELLA was showing signs of being pretty handy. She raced twice, at this level in town and Gosford and on both occasions she was up there all the way finishing 3rd in each race. Since looked solid in recent trial. Big show.
Big step up from barrier trial to race day but OPERATIVE may be up to it. He led all the way and easily won recent trial. Might be very smart.
CONTEMPORARY has the makings of a nice type. Certainly looked that way placing at Flemington on debut. Been disappointing since but has the ability to run on and is fitter now following a 5th at Gosford last start when resuming.
This bloke COLOUR SERGEANT is pretty handy and is getting better every start. The fitter he gets the better he races and scored impressively at BM 72 level last start in a Midway. Big show.
TINNIE WINNIE is smart too and after winning just prior to a spell, came out this level and was even mo0re impressive scoring first up. Looks to be on the rise.
YGGDRASIL is honest and tough and gets home hard. Placed at past 5 starts in slightly weaker grade but weighted well here.
Tip: TINNIE WINNIE
Good betting race. PRINCE INVINCIBLE returned from a spell with a new trainer in Sara Ryan and led until final 100m in similar race. It was a gutsy run and carries 2kg less this time. Is fitter too.
BARTOSELLI went out for a spell after 4 terrific runs last campaign. Clearly has lots of talent and trialled well leading into this first up. respect him a lot.
ASPEN CHASE steps up a fair bit in class here but is in great touch winning past two out of town. Likes it wet and has claims.
The rails draw and Hughie to ride brings SUNBORN into play here. She has loads of talent on her day and showed that winning this grade first-up before inglorious run 2nd up. Should strip super fit now and gets all then reads.
PLEADING is very h0nest and talented. Won four in a row before a spell, then last campaign her two starts, all at this level, were excellent, placing both times. Resumes again here with a helpful 2kg claim. Big danger.
ZAIN’S GIRL is handy and is very fit. After a couple of useful 4ths, placed this company and can again.
Tough race to access. Some really nice types emerging.
Oh I did like the way MR TIPLA made his way home through the mud last start at this level to grab 3rd. Track will be drier here and the gets a 2kg claim which brings him right into contention this time.
BLACK QUEEN is one of those always reliable types. She rises to the occasion when asked and is 2nd up here after an eye-catching 4th. Big show.
CAMAGUEY has foot on the till. Has been a solid and on both occasions, impressive 2nd this level at last two runs. Certain to be in the money again.
