David Coles AM Stakes Runner by Runner

1. Wally West (10)

Lost a plate in the Without Fear Stakes but still didn’t show enough to warrant being a major chance.

2. Maximillius (6)

Showed little so far, will need to improve.

3. Abrupt (3)

Debut runner. Watch the market.

4. See You In Heaven (1)

Going for three-in-a-row and is the class of this race. Drawn beautifully and looks hard to beat.

5. Aitch Two Oh (12)

Good win last start but gets no relief against favourite from their meeting two back and has drawn the widest. Place chance.

6. Miss Dunsford (11)

Winkers on first time, quick back up. Drawn poorly here. Will be hitting the line late.

7. Prairie Flower (2)

Ran solidly behind Aitch Two Oh in the Without Fear Stakes. Will need to improve. Place chance.

8. Celtic Vader (9)

Needs to improve.

9. Portray (8)

Coming off a nice win at Cranbourne in a maiden race. Could surprise.

10. Startide (7)

Can’t have.

11. As Time Goes By (4)

Debut for a nice stable and has J Kah engaged. Watch the market.

12. Grey River (5)
