1. Test The Law
This All Too Hard gelding trained by Matthew Seyers has been in the trifecta at all four starts with a win and three placings. He didn’t come on as expected when 3 lengths 3rd over 1200m at Murray Bridge on 18 June, then chased solidly to just miss for 0.1 length 2nd over 1200m at Murray Bridge on 2 July. Proven on soft tracks and can place.
Trained by Clinton McDonald at Cranbourne, this More Than Ready colt broke his maiden at his 4th outing in a Pakenham maiden plate over 1100m, Will be ridden by Barend Vorster who won this race on Mac’N’Cheese last year and on Westport in 2019. Not the worst.
3. Club Punter
This Nicconi gelding is trained by Roslyn Day at Murray Bridge. Gave nothing else a chance when a 0.8 length winner on soft gomg over 1300m at Balaklava on 29 June at his 3rd and latest start. Could surprise.
Ran 2nd at his only start over 1200m at Murray Bridge. Should have benefitted from that experience and the blinkers go on. One of the chances.
5. He’s Heaven
A Zoustar colt trained by Peter Moody. He started favourite at his only start and finished 2 lengths 2nd over 1200m at Pakenham on the synthetic. In the mix.
He has had more starts than any other runner (6) but is still a maiden. Unlikely.
7. Birdies Galore
This Spieth filly is unbeaten at both starts. She debuted with a 2.3 length win over 1200m at Warracknabeal on 21 May, then was a 2.8 length winner over 1250m at Morphettville Parks on 4 June. Should be in the finish.
She won on debut at Swan Hill, then ran on strongly out wide for a length 4th over 1200m at Flemongton on 2 July. The 1400m should suit and looks one of the key chances.
9. Field The Moment
Trained by Phillip Stokes who won this race with Instant Celebrity in 2020. She ran home strongly at the end of both her races and is looking for this longer distance.
10. Harmonious Senora
Has only had one start where she kept coming to get there in the final strides and won by 0.3 length over 1212m at Geelong on heavy going. She was at very long odds then and could surprise again.
