Track Condition: Good 4
Rail Position: Out 10m entire circuit
ROZNAMIA was well supported into short favourite on debut and he got the job done. Drawn ideally and can make it two from two.
AMENOPHIS hit the line solidly from the back in is jumpout. He looks ready for the racetrack and expect plenty of stable support on debut.
JAMARRA was disappointing at Flemington last start but he had been racing in consistent form previously and he gets chance to bounce back in this.
FIELDS OF IVY is ready to win third-up from spell. She has not been beaten all that far in either run back from a spell and with apprentice claim she looks well placed.
Liked the way that RATHLIN finished the race off a grabbed minor placing at Murray Bridge last start. Nice barrier and can sneak into a minor placing.
PEIDRA won fresh then last three runs has not been beaten all that far. Drawn to get the perfect run in transit and must respect.
Tip: FIELDS OF IVY
SURICATE chased home solidly when placed in small field in Adelaide last start. Third-up from spell and can sneak a minor placing.
DEFROSTED finished the race off strongly and grabbed placing at The Valley last start. Expect she will be right in the mix and she looks each-way value.
DEVOUT HERO looked in need of the run when made late ground when just missed placing at The Valley last start. Drawn ideally and strips fitter for this.
MY WHISPER sprinted clear and won with something in hand here last start. That made it two from two this campaign and she can win again.
WHITE HIBISCUS does not win out of turn but she got the job done here last start and no reason she cannot go on with it again.
GLINT OF HOPE started long odds on at Pakenham when resuming and she won with something in hand. Fitter and will be right in the mix.
Tip: MY WHISPER
DETONATOR JACK showed an exciting turn-of-hoof and put them away quickly winning at Bendigo on debut. Looks above average and he can win again.
YAPHET chased home the smart Stretto here first-up from spell. Fitter and drawn to get all the favours. Drawn to get perfect run and should be in finish.
FLASH FEELING got his maiden out of the way at Pakenham last start when got up in last stride. He gets ideal run and would not leave him out of exotics.
Tip: DETONATOR JACK
MILETUS is threatening to win in this class. Chased home steadily when placed here last start and he finds similar race. He can get away with this.
HEART OF A LION won maiden in a canter two starts back then just miss last start. Racing well enough to be a factor in this.
TANAKA SON was beaten less than 2 lengths in a Tasmanian Derby two starts back before poor run last start. If he finds best form he can figure.
LEMPICKA looks a promising filly who has been working through her classes with ease. Untapped ability and she can go on her winning ways.
SPARRING won his maiden at Albury first-up then he fought the race out tenaciously here last start and just missed. Drawn ideally and he looks winning chance.
MIDNIGHT CHARM has been racing in consistent form but just finding it hard to win. He will be right in the mix again.
AUSTRATA gets his chance to win. Placed in all three starts this time in and was not beaten all that far here last start. Top chance.
RAPID ACHIEVER won here fresh then just left her run a little too late last start. Third-up from spell and can return to winners stall.
THE NEPHEW won the Tasmanian Derby last start. Back to Melbourne and only needs that form to be right in the mix.
