Danon Roman (Flemington Race 1 No. 2):
This Deep Impact gelding is the early favourite for this provincial plate over a mile. At the end of last campaign he chased steadily for 2.75 lengths 6th over 2000m at Flemington on 11 January, then resumed for 1.9 lengths 6th over 1400m at Caulfield on 30 May where he made steady ground between runners. He has never won second-up or at this track, and does not look like value.
