1. Streets Of Avalon
Streets Of Avalon’s last win was the Group 1 Futurity Stakes however that was ten starts and almost twelve months ago. He has never won first up but will be up on speed and giving himself every chance in a moderate group two race.
2. Widgee Turf
Talented sprinter/ middle distance type who loves racing at this track. At age seven these might be a little slick for him first up but look for him flashing late.
This James Cummings six year old won the Bletchingly Stakes and Regal Roller Stakes at his last two Victorian starts. He was then spelled and has ran third at Rosehill and fourth at Eagle Farm to begin this preparation. Damian Oliver reunites with him and he looks the one they have to beat here.
4. Arcadia Prince
Former Perth galloper who is now with Amy Mcdonald. He is clearly a talented horse and has an impressive winning strike rate but the gear changes and time off would indicate he has had some issues. Therefor I would prefer to see him first up.
Tavisan is a winner of five of his 26 career starts. He rode the speed at Caulfield in the Christmas Stakes but weakened badly over the concluding stages to run seventh. Inform jockey Jamie Kah sticks with him but he needs to improve on his last start effort to figure here.
Neighbourhood had two runs at the end of the spring carnival then re appeared after a seven week let up in the Standish Handicap on New Years day. He got back off a slow tempo there and was just fair to the line. The winkers go on here which may sharpen him up but he looks to map in a trick position – last on the rail?
