Track Condition: Good 4

Rail Position: Out 4m entire circuit

LUNA ROSA was in the market at Doomben on debut. She showed speed but did not let down on the heavy ground. If she gets firmer ground here she maybe too speedy for these.

SAILOR’S SECRET jumped to the front and gave nothing else a chance here first-up and got his maiden out of the way. From ideal barrier draw here he can win again.

SHALOOK comes into this ready to find best form third-up from spell. She has been placed in both runs back and she will be right in the mix.


AHIKA resumes from spell. She was not beaten all that far in two runs last time in work. Had trial to get her ready for this and from ideal barrier draw should get all the favours.

POIGNANT resumes. She has been good in all three starts. Only the one run last prep at Wyong when luckless covering plenty of extra ground. Recent trial win has her ready for this.

UZERLI finished the race off strongly when placed at Sunshine Coast first-up. Sure to be better from the run and if she can overcome awkward gate should be right in the mix.


KING SHALAA comes into this ready third-up from spell. He was placed at Sunshine Coast first-up then backed that up last start when again in placings. Drawn perfectly and can win this.

BRONZE DRAGON has been racing in consistent form. Placed in all three starts this time in and expect he will be in the mix for a long way.

FIELD REGIMENT resumes. Started odds on at Ballina before break but just found one better when odds on favourite. Comes off solid recent trial and must consider.


VAPORIZING started favourite at Eagle Farm last start but missed start and could only get going late to just miss placing. Third-up and if he can jump with them he can win this.

DOCTOR TEEKAY resumes. Won all three starts this track last time in work. Couple of trials to get him ready for first-up tilt and cannot leave out of winning chances.

PLUTOCRAT resumes from spell. She usually races well fresh (4:1-1-0) and two recent trial wins suggests she is ready to find best first-up.


ZELIFY won with something in hand in similar race at Doomben last start. Will go forward from awkward gate and she can win again.

DYNAMIC DUO looks ready to win this prep. Been placed in all three runs leading into this and although has wide gate he will be in the finish again.

ONE SHY RUBY resumes. She has a solid first-up record (4:1-2-0). Sprinted too well to win at Sunshine Coast when first-up last time in work. Recent trial was sound.


PAREDO was in the market when fresh here last start but she just did not finish the race off well enough after racing just off the speed. Won recent trial and she will be competitive in this.

SENSHI SPIRIT chased home steadily when just out of the placings at Grafton first-up. Sure to be better from that outing and she looks an each way chance.

REALITY was poor in town last start but he had not been too bad in two previous starts and although drawn wide cannot leave out of exotics.


ROLLER COASTER has been working through his classes with authority winning first couple of runs back from spell. Drawn to get the perfect run in transit and he can win again.

VITESSE FRANCAIS was luckless at Eagle Farm last start when held-up final 200m but still ran into a minor placing. This no harder and he can return to winners stall.

STORM HARBOUR comes into this ready third-up from spell. He has not been beaten all that far in both runs back and from ideal barrier her should make presence felt.


Liked the way GIULIA chased home and got up in the final stride to win maiden at the Gold Coast last start. Will improve off that outing and can win again.

QUIZ SHOW had perfect run and got the job done winning his maiden at Doomben first-up from spell. Barrier a concern but he looks like he can go on from that effort.

BEARHUG comes into this ready third-up from a spell. Poor start was costly at Toowoomba last start but still ran into minor placing. If he can improve beginning he can get away with this.


DESERT DREAMER started a short favourite at Doomben first-up and he got the job done despite having no favours. Should get better run here and can win again.

HIDDEN EYES looks ready to produce best form coming into this third-up from spell. He was placed here when fresh then went to Sunshine Coast and battled. This nice race for him.

ASWAAT resumes from a spell. She only has the one placing first-up from a break and will be better when she gets over further but this not difficult and she can sneak into a minor placing.
