Track Condition: Soft 5

Rail Position: Out 8m entire circuit

ZATTASTAR has been threatening to break her maiden status after a string of competitive runs this campaign. Only needs to hold that form and she will be right in the mix.

EASIER SAID made good late ground at Sunshine Coast first-up from break when ran into close placing. She will be better from that outing and drawn to get ideal run in transit.

BITTER ROMANCE chased home steadily enough on the heavy ground at Grafton last start. This not a difficult affair and she will get all the favours from ideal barrier.


EVERLAST has been screaming out to get his maiden out of the way. Beaten less than a length on the poly track last start and if he holds that form must respect.

EQAUVESCENT looks the likely leader and he led them up for a long way at Gatton last start before being overran. He may steal a break on the corner and takes catching.

BRAZEN BRECCIA resumes from a break. He was placed in three starts prior to break and recent trials will have him ready for this.


SAFEEYA resumes from spell. She finally found her best form winning last couple at Sunshine Coast before break. Given a trial to get ready for this and she may just be too good for this.

KUDU was making good late ground back on the fence on the poly track last start. Drawn to get a perfect sit in behind the speed and he will be in finish.

OURCONI just got too far off them at Gold Coast last start but she made good late ground and finished just out of placings. He can sneak a minor spot in this.


CONTRERAS won his maiden three starts back by a big margin then followed up with and other strong win at Sunshine Coast. Not beaten all that far at Grafton last start and this no harder.

GENTLE PRINCE drove through to win in similar race two starts back then just missed in a driving finish last start. He gets chance to return to winners stall.

NOBLE CAT held them all off for a strong maiden win at Doomben last start. This is a step up but he has been given a trial to keep fit and must consider.


HONESTYANDLOYALTY was well supported into short favourite on the poly track last start and just missed in a driving finish. Gets his chance to go one better and win maiden.

YANGARI has not been beaten all that far in recent starts. Drawn a touch awkwardly but if he can find a position with cover her should be right in the mix.

FEIRME PRINCE comes to Queensland off some sound NSW provincial form. Placed at Wyong two starts back and if he can find that form would be a factor.


CARNEROS won when fresh last time in work then progressed to better races before break. Won trial leading into this and from ideal draw can win this.

MISTA OMEGA won his maiden with something in hand at Eagle Farm last start. He will give them a start from the corner but has big finish and must consider.

ASCOT EXPRESS resumes from a spell. He was placed this track/distance when first-up last time in work and he raced consistently throughout campaign. If forward enough he will be in finish.


RED RUBI demolished them at Doomben two starts back in similar race to this then forget last start when never out of trouble at any stage. She can bounce back and win this.

AVOLONTE is another that was luckless when always wide at Eagle Farm last start and she was entitled to weakened. She had won a couple straight previously and must consider.

OURCONI has been racing in consistent form of late and just out of placings last start. Would not leave him out of exotics in this field.


VACCINE was well supported first-up at Doomben and she got the job done with a soft win in the end. Needs some magic from wide gate but she goes on top again.

Thought that SHNITTY should have won here first-up break when she was badly held-up before getting going late. Drawn ideally and with ounce of luck will be right in this.

EVA DANIELA has not been beaten all that far in recent starts. This not a difficult affair and if she holds that form would give this a shake.
