Rail Position: True entire circuit

SPANISH ANGELS gave them a galloping lesson on the heavy ground at Ipswich last start. Likely to get some wet ground again and she can make it two in a row.

WICKED CHANCE was well supported here on debut but just could not match winner late. Sure to be better from the race experience and she will be in the mix.

WHISTLING SPIRIT ran them along in front here last start and they could not catch him final stages. Expect he will drive through and lead again and he takes catching.


What is going to happen to PALLADAS in this race? Good thing beaten at Doomben last start and just seems to find trouble at the wrong time in his races. He deserves a win.

BELLA ROYALE is in winning form. Made it two in a row winning at Ipswich last start despite doing it tough. She must be included in chances.

BOLD PEDRO has been flying up north winning last couple at Rockhampton by big spaces. He can measure up in what looks a harder assignment.


CHOCOLATIER showed good speed to lead at Doomben last start and he was only claimed final stages. Should drive through and lead again and he is the one to catch.

LADY SALERNO was dominant winning at Doomben three starts back then not been beaten all that far in two runs since. She will be in finish again.

LUVYOUANYTIME has been a model of consistency of late with four straight placings. He only needs to hold that form to be a factor in this.

TRADUCE has not been all that far off them in town of late. Drawn to get the perfect run in transit and would not be surprised to see him get away with this.


CARNEROS caught the eye making late ground back inside here last start and just missed minor placing. Going to have something each way on him at the odds.

MISHANI UNTAMED is racing in super form this time in. Won with ease here two starts back then made good ground when placed at Doomben last start. This a winnable race.

MILITARY GAMBLER deserves a win. Only just missed at Ipswich two back then was beaten less than a length here last start. Cannot leave him out of multiples.


SLOW HANDS should have finished a little closer here last start when sent out favourite. He was held up before the corner but still ran on late. He can figure in this.

GROUP THINK ran them along in front at Doomben last start and held off late challenge for tough all the way win. Expect he will try similar tactics.

TAMAILAIDE finally got the job done winning at Doomben last start after some luckless runs. Drawn to get the perfect run in behind the speed and he can win again.


EF TROOP finished too well to win at Doomben last start after a luckless first-up effort. Sure to be at peak fitness third-up and can win again.

ROMAN AUREUS sprinted quickly to win two starts back the chased home Ef Troop at Doomben last start. Drawn to get perfect run and he can turn the tables in this.

DREAMREACHER was sent out favourite at Doomben last start and came from long way back for good tough win. Plenty of speed her and watch for him late.


ZUMA CALIFORNIA is a smart gelding resuming from a spell. He won his first two career starts then placed in the Winning Rupert before a break. He might be too classy for these.

BLACKJACK BOOM had nice run and finished too well to get the prize here last start. Going to need an ounce of luck from barrier but will go close again.

RUBIQUITOUS led them up and held on for good strong win at Doomben two back then just faded late last start. Will go forward and takes running down.

MISTER LARRABEE resumes from spell. He was placed at Eagle Farm when fresh last time in work and recent trial will have him ready for this.


OSAMU was sent out favourite at Doomben last start. Looked home when found the front at the 200m but just found one better final stages. He can go one better in this.

LIZA WITH A ZEE is racing in consistent form. Ipswich winner fresh then she has not been beaten all that far in two runs since. She will be a factor.

MISCHIEF MANAGED resumes from spell. She has super first-up record (3:2-0-1) and won fresh last time in work. Must respect on that stat alone.


Going to have an each way beat on RACECOURSE ROAD. He comes into this third-up from spell. Placed on the heavy first-up then luckless when always wide here last start. He can figure.

Had something on BAD BARISTA at Doomben last start and she was not beaten all that far. Barrier no concern as she gets back and watch for her to be steaming home late.

PENNINO comes into this ready third-up from a spell. Made good late ground at Doomben last start. Won trial since and cannot leave out.
