Rail Position: True entire circuit

THINK I’M READY looked smart winning recent Toowoomba trial by a big space. Would have liked him to have drawn a little better but on debut expect he will be a factor.

SAILOR’S SECRET was in the market on debut and after showing speed was only claimed late. Had break since and expect he will be up front for a long way.

NEW ARRIVAL is another debutant. Placed in recent Doomben trial and from inside draw cannot leave him out of chances.


DODGEBALL was not beaten all that far in any of his starts at first prep. He found heavy ground at Gold Coast first-up and was never likely. He could be the big improver second-up.

I AM GOOD AT THIS chased home steadily when just missed at Grafton last start. He gets his chance to finally break maiden status.

BASIL JUNIOR comes into this ready third-up from spell. Not been beaten all that far in both runs back and from inside gate he should be right in the mix.


LAW PARTY showed nice turn-of-hoof when burst through and got the prize at Eagle Farm first-up from a spell. Fitter and he can win again.

ROLLER COASTER finished too well to get up last couple of strides first-up from break. Looks to be speed in this and he can finish over them again.

DU MARIER comes into this ready third-up from spell. Was placed at Toowoomba fresh then just bit flat last start. She can bounce back in this.


COMMAND KING started favourite at Eagle Farm last start and finished too well to get up last couple of strides. Third-up and can win again.

LORD MARKEL raced up on the speed and proved too strong at Sunshine Coast last start. Should get ideal run behind the speed and will get his chance.

ROYAL PERFORMANCE was a Gatton winner three starts back then just battled last couple. Drawn perfectly and should make presence felt.


EVERLAST resumes from a break. No luck when always wide at Sunshine Coast last time in work. Drawn awkwardly but happy to have something each way on him in this.

JACK BE LUCKY deserves a win this campaign. He has been close-up in all three runs this time in and would not be surprised to see him right in the mix.

BEANS MEANS raced up on the speed on the heavy ground at Gold Coast last start and was only claimed late. Third-up and he can get away with this.


PIVOTAL MOTION won two in a row this track then he only just missed here last start when looked unlucky. Drawn ideally and can return to winners stall.

KAVAK chased home well enough when placed at Eagle Farm last start. Comes into this ready third-up and from ideal barrier cannot dismiss.

MISS MCKINLEY raced up on the speed and just proved a touch too strong on the poly track last start. Drawn to get the perfect run in transit and she is a must for exotics.


AQUILEON started long odds on favourite here last start and he made it two in a row with soft win in the end. Lining up for three straight and must include in winning chances.

LADY SALERNO ran on strongly final stages and was just out of the placings at Doomben last start. This no harder and she looks well placed.

KIPPAX finished too well to win at Sunshine Coast last start. Been racing in consistent form and he can go on and win again.


YOU ARE PERSISTENT has been impressive winning his last couple in a canter. Jumped to the front and led throughout at Eagle Farm last start. Will try similar tactics in this.

RISING FIRE relished the heavy to win at Gold Coast on debut then went for a break. Bit disappointing fresh but is better than that and can improve.

EXPERT EYE was not beaten all that far at Eagle Farm when placed last start. Barrier draw is a concern but cannot leave out of exotics.
