Strong last start win. Some query from barrier 1 but this race is well within reach.

2. Mount Popa (11)

Can’t have.

3. Desert Icon (5)

Good return, strips fitter here with the good draw. Hard to beat.

6. Lord Admore (7)

Due for a win and finds the right race. Just needs a tow into it at the right time.

7. Bois D’argent (9)

Strong win last start in QLD and maps to measure up here. Top 2 chance.
