Rail Position: Out 1m entire circuit
TAMILAIDE has always shown potential and seems to be finally living up to his ability winning last couple with ease. Will get ideal run and can make it three in a row.
DEEP SCEIVA is not far off a win this prep. Placed here first-up then not beaten all that far last start. Third-up from spell and she will be in the mix.
GROUP THINK jumped to the front and led all the way here two starts back then fought on behind Tamilaide last start. He will be the one to catch.
FLYING RUPERT made a big impression at his only trial when he demolished them winning his only trial at Deagon by over 5 lengths. Drawn perfectly and will be short price on debut.
CAPITAL TOWER resumes from spell. He was dominant in both wins at first prep and recent trial win was good enough to suggest he will be right in the mix.
EXECUTIVE STRESS looked a little unlucky not to have finished closer here on debut when struck some trouble from the corner. Drawn perfectly and he can figure in the exotics.
Tip: FLYING RUPERT
SHE’SGOTTHEBOOM jumped to the front and gave them a galloping lesson here on debut. Drawn to drive through and lead again and she will be the one to catch.
BURNISH GOLD raced on the speed before bolting away soon after straightening for impressive win first-up at Sunshine Coast. Better from the outing and can win again.
STUCK IN A DREAM finished the race off strongly but just found one better final stages. Better from the race experience and would not leave out of minor spots.
SLOW HANDS has not saluted for a while but he keeps getting very close and looks nice each way odds in a winnable race. Drawn to get perfect run and happy to put on top.
SEAT OF POWER was tenacious fighting back to get the prize here last start. Expect he will roll forward and lead these and he will take catching again.
OUR CANDIDATE has been building up to finding his best form. Finds an easier race and would not be surprised to see him in the finish.
Tip: SLOW HANDS
Was on KNIGHT MARINER first-up from spell and thought he ran on solidly when not beaten all that far. Sure to be better from that outing and he gets chance to return to winners stall.
DEALMAKER just got too far back at Rosehill first-up from spell and although made ground could not get close. Gets out to 1600m which will suit.
ALWAYS ON SHOW was sent out favourite here last start. She went forward and sat up on the speed before taking over soon after straightening and proved too good. She can go on with it here.
Tip: KNIGHT MARINER
SEA RAIDER won a couple in a row before just missing behind Profit last start. Should get the ideal run in behind the speed and will have last crack at leaders.
PROFIT has found a purple patch of form winning last two starts. Clear winner at Sunshine Coast two back then finished too well winning here last start. No reason he cannot win again.
HAIL MANHATTAN chased home soundly to finish just out of placings here last start. He looks ready to find best form and can sneak into a placing.
Tip: SEA RAIDER
GO WANDJI resumes from a spell. He is unbeaten in both first-up tries and yet to miss a place in seven starts. He looks the one to beat first-up.
MISCHIEF MANAGED raced up on the speed but just fell short when placed fresh at Sunshine Coast. Better from the outing and she won second-up last time in work.
LIZA WITH A ZEE was luckless at Sunshine Coast last start when always wide and entitled to tire. Barrier is her concern in this.
Tip: GO WANDJI
BLACKJACK BOOM made it two from two this prep when he held off late challenge to win at Sunshine Coast last outing. Drawn perfectly and can win again.
AMITY GAL won maiden with something in hand at Sunshine Coast on debut then went to town and was only overran final stages. Needs lick from barrier but she will get through the ground.
ZUMA CALIFORNIA showed good speed at Sunshine Coast first-up but fitness told final stages and he faded. Fitter from the outing and he will be an improver.
Tip: BLACKJACK BOOM
VINCO came from a long way off them at Gold Coast first-up when just out of placings. Won second-up last time in work and he has the ability to win this.
RACECOURSE ROAD was run down last stride at Sunshine Coast last start. He has been placed in two of three starts this time in and he looks close to a win.
GOGOL made it two in a row winning at Gold Coast last start. Finds similar and no reason he cannot make it three on the trot.
Going to keep a close eye on the market for the return of CARDIFF. The David Vandyke trained gelding won fresh last time in work and although drawn wide going to have something each way.
TRAMONTO started favourite here last start and after he showed plenty of speed he faded final stages. He will be fitter from the outing and will be right in the mix.
SHAMROCK LU was enormous winning at Sunshine Coast last start after racing wide he proved too strong. This touch harder but cannot knock winning form.
