He showed some very encouraging improvement last time out and he has certainly come on from the run. From a much improved draw this time around, he should enjoy the extra ground and the stable are expecting him to be one of the leading contenders at the business end.

Predicted Betting: 7/1

She heads into this race in good form after a good effort last time out. Now stepping into unknown territory with this race being over 2400m, all indications from previous performances and her pedigree suggest that she will relish this trip. The Peter Muscutt stable are expecting to see her go right into contention here.

Winning Form Comment: Best MR:80. Filly taking on males. Good last effort on this course. The one to beat.

He ran a very good race last weekend and now drops in class. If repeating that last effort, he should be a huge runner with the 4kg claimer retaining the ride.

He gave a very good impression when overcoming a wide draw in his last start. Now stepping up to a trip where he will be considered a big factor by many, he gets the services of Anton Marcus and on his work at home should be the one to beat.

Winning Form Comment: Best MR:82. Good latest from a wide draw. Reunites with Marcus and must be considered.

See the replay of his last start here:

He may require a bit of luck from a tricky draw. He enjoys this course and has come on from his last run when victorious over further. The stable have reported that he is doing very well and they are expecting another big performance here.

Winning Form Comment: Best MR:74. Ridden to perfection last time. Trainers only runner. Big threat.

She has found some very encouraging form of late and comes into this race in good order. One concern is that she hasn’t won on the Turf, but if all goes according to plan, she should be very competitive once again.

Winning Form Comment: Best MR:75. Smart form for Rich camp. Back on the turf. Should go close.
