Godolphin colt. Has finished in the placings at his last four starts. Latest was second behind Fangirl in the Carbine Club Stakes at Flemington. Damian Oliver sticks with him. One of the chances.
2. Port Louis
One of the better maidens going around. Was Group 2 placed in the Sires Produce Stakes at Eagle Farm in May. Narrow second in the Springtime Stakes last start. Barrier the knock. Probably has to go right back?
3. Blushing Tycoon
Drops back in trip from 1800m to 1600m for this. Was second in the Springtime last start. In the mix again here.
Was a dominant winner second up over 1200m on Cranbourne Cup day. Faces a firmer track here and jumps from 1200m to 1600m but is clearly talented and is likely to be open to further improvement. Each way claims.
5. Mister Me
Has one win from six starts. Blinkers go on but he looks to be lacking the class to win here.
6. Cardinal Gem
Loved his second up effort at Flemington where he charged home into fourth. Well drawn here getting back onto his home track. Ready to run a huge race third up!
Pattern against at Sandown last start but didn’t think he did enough to be recommending him as a bet in this. Prefer others.
Has had five starts for no wins and two placings. He was a good run behind Burning Power at Moonee Valley last start. Drawn well. Consider for multiples.
9. Blue Army
Was heavily backed first up in a Warrnambool maiden where he needed every bit of the 1400m to reel in Typhoon Moon. 1600m will be to his liking and he gets Damian Lane. Rough hope.
10. General Firepower
Saved from Pakenham on Thursday night to run here. Impressed winning his maiden at start number two. Wouldn’t shock to see him run well.
Was excellent winning a Pakenham maiden on debut on November 11. Blinkers go on for this second up assignment. Untapped!
12. Festival Dancer
Sydney sider who is attempting to make it five wins in a row here. Was dominant winning by 5.5 lengths in a class 2 at Goulburn two starts ago, then an easy winner of the Group 3 Spring Stakes. Should find the lead again here. Rates highly.
