1. Ingratiating (3)  – SCRATCHED

2. General Beau (6)

Racing well but hard to back with confidence. Should be around the mark.

3. Here To Shock (2)

Maps well from barrier 2. Should get a nice run in transit and is well up to these. Chance.

4. It’sourtime (9)

Loves racing here and should prove hard to hold out in a race lacking depth.

Unlucky last start. Expect more in this and Shinn is an ideal booking.

Maps tricky but gets the right race and will prove very tough to stave off against these. Likeable at the odds.

Goes on top. Brings in the strong NSW form and looks poised in this field. Should head to the front and prove very hard to mow down.

Prefer others.

10. Mr Exclusive (4)
