Track and distance specialist who won the Group 1 Newmarket Handicap second up here in March. Also won this race last year. He hit the line well first up in the Bobbie Lewis and is capable of settling closer to the speed here. Rates highly.
Has seven wins from twenty starts. Normally an on pacer but sat off them in the Bobbie Lewis and that proved a winning formula. Up in weight here but is going well and can figure again.
South Australian gelding who loves the Flemington straight. He ran third in this race last year before going onto win the Linlithgow on Derby day. Returned with a good second in Adelaide and gets Damian Lane for this. Go well.
Resumes off a second placing in the Wayne Wilson at Eagle Farm in June. He has won one of eight first up and has struggled at Flemington in the past. Place chance at best.
5. Lost And Running – SCR
6. Away Game
Very consistent mare trained by Ciaron Maher & David Eustace. She finished second at Caulfield off a wide run on August 14, then beat all bar Splintex home in the Bobbie Lewis. She is another who has more weight to carry here but she is flying!
Likes to roll forward and make her luck up on speed. She has started big odds at her last two runs and weakened out. Prefer others.
8. Bons Abroad
Travelled into the race nicely before the gap closed first up in the How Now Stakes. She won her only previous start here in May and goes well for Teo Nugent. Place claims.
9. Ruby Street
Lightly raced five year old mare who returned with an excellent win here in a benchmark 70 on September 22. Takes a big step up in class but it wouldn’t shock to see her run a race. Consider for multiples.
