This five year old mare trained by Tony Golan is absolutely airborne. She has won three in a row which includes the Group 1 Coolmore last start. She likes to get back in her races so she may need some luck from barrier 2 at a key stage but if she gets it she looks a great chance again.
2. Greysful Glamour
Bold front running type. She contested the All Star Mile last time but was unsuited by the wet track. Her best would put her right in this.
Finished midfield in last years Melbourne Cup. This is short of her best distance and is just a pipe opener.
4. Quantum Mechanic
Mare in form. She has won two of her last three including the Group 2 Sunline Stakes at Moonee Valley last start. In the mix here.
5. Sweet Deal
This Waterhouse/Bott trained mare won the $1,000,000 The Hunter at Newcastle last preperation. Has only been fair at her two runs this time in. Perhaps the booking of Hugh Bowman can help her find the couple of lengths she needs here.
6. Rich Hips
Unleashed a powerful turn of foot to win the Hong Kong Jockey Club Stakes at Flemington on Melbourne Cup day. Last start she just got too far back in the Coolmore. Damian Oliver goes aboard here, if the she gets the right race shape she is capable of flying home and being in the finish.
Irithea has had some time off since finishing last in the Magic Millions Fillies and Mares race on the Gold Coast in January. Synthetic hoof filler first time indicates she may have some feet issues. Happy to risk.
8. All Saints’ Eve
Finished third at Rosehill first up, then did not have the best of luck in the Coolmore but I loved the way she hit the line the last bit. She looks primed to run a big race here third up. One of the chances.
Talented mare who ran a narrow second to Collette in last years Golden Eagle at this track/distance. She is another who comes through the Coolmore where she finished 5th. Rock hard fit and is in the mix.
Lightly raced filly who has won five from eleven. She bolted in first up at Rosehill by 1.8 lengths in a high rating race. She has trialed well in between runs and looks a great chance here.
Has had 82 days since finishing fourth on the Gold Coast. Outclassed here.
