1. Bonham (2)
Should be improved off the first up run. Monitor the market.
2. Nudge (14)
Very smart and is a winner over this track and trip. Nudge will be relying on the track to dry out with no wins from 9 goes on wet surfaces so that remains a query to its chances however is a major player in this.
3. Yamazaki (3)
Another that really needs the track to dry out to be a chance. Racing well on dry surfaces but does not enjoy getting the toe in so its chances will depend on the surface improving from the heavy range.
4. Dzsenifer (5)
Can pinch this and sit quite prominent in the run with little speed in this race. Handles a wet surface, is racing in extremely consistent fashion and ticks plenty of boxes. Clear one to beat from the suitable draw.
5. She’s The Gift (13)
Does handle wet surfaces and the booking of Tim Clark creates interest. Monitor the market.
6. April Rain (1)
Hasn’t been one of mine for quite some time and I have saved money for that choice. Has plenty of talent but struggles to put races away. Looks well placed here but that has been the case it’s past 7-8 starts and just can not find the winners circle. Again, can win but hard to trust.
7. Cafe Royal (9)
Well placed and has the kind of running pattern to pinch this race with little speed engaged. If Cafe Royal can find the front without spending too much petrol it will be extremely hard to run down.
8. Seleque (12)
Knows how to win and 2/2 with Orman aboard. Comes into this with good form and is a massive chance.
9. Adelase (7)
Reasonable drop in grade, decent enough first up run and enjoy this track and trip. Over the odds in a competitive race.
10. Lunakorn (6)
May get scratched as it races better on top of the ground. On old form would give this a red hot shake but may not run because of the conditions.
11. Stolen Jade (4)
Has been well backed a lot recently but needs to put some form together. Unlucky last start and does handle the soft conditions but has been costly lately. Some hope from the good draw, keep an eye on the market.
12. Galaxy Belle (11)
Can’t have on current form.
13. Soubrette (8)
Tougher race but loves this track and was good last run. Knockout hope at odds.
