Son of the champion stallion Galileo who we sadly lost during the week. He ran well in the Warrnambool Cup two back, then bolted in here by 3.8 lengths last start against a similar level of opposition. Jamie Kah sticks with him and he looks a rock solid play again at even money or better.
The Andrew Noblet stable is flying at the moment and so is his three year old filly Foxy Frida who is putting together a terrific second preparation. She has produced a powerful turn of foot to win her last two starts (both at this track) and has shown she is capable of making ground inside of horses which she may have to do again here from the inside gate.
This Godolphin trained galloper has come up favourite in the opening race on the card. This is not a strong race but she just battled to the line last time at Rosehill and jumps sharply in trip here. Barrier one looms as a potential negative as well.
