Nimalee looks the likely lead here. She sat outside the lead in the Coolmore Legacy and weakened in the run home to finish ninth. Prior she won the James Carr at Group 3 level. One of the chances.
Finished midfield in the Golden Eagle and the Gong during the spring. Was under heavy riding along way from home last time but was starting to charge through the line late. 1600m suits.
3. All Saints’ Eve
There abouts in all four runs this preperation and her last start is better than the ninth suggests. She gets back in her races so may need some luck from barrier one but if she gets it she can play a role here. Wet track also suits.
Former international trained by Bjorn Baker at Wawrick Farm. Finished sixth at her first Australian start. Has a strong record on soft ground and is a likely improver.
5. Game Of Thrones
Another who is never far away but struggles to win. Question marks for her on soft ground.
6. East Asia
Queenslander who finished second first up at Eagle Farm and then third last start at Ipswhich. An unknown at the distance and is taking a big step up in grade.
Three year old colt by Pierro. Outclassed in the Doncaster but was good in the Rosehill Guineas prior. Gets a leading rider in Tommy Berry here.
Mare in form. She ran a slashing race in the Country Championship final, then finished fourth in the Tamworth Cup. Can she run a mile?
Another of the Chris Waller runners. She was making good ground back to the inside in a benchmark 100 at Randwick last start. Should be peaking here fourth up at the mile.
10. All Hallows’ Eve
Last start Randwick winner. She has finished in the top three at four of her five starts this preparation. She should be able to find a decent position in the run and is a roughie with a chance.
11. Electric Girl
Going well but there looks a few queries here. Unplaced from five previous attempts on wet tracks, unplaced at the mile and draws a wide gate.
This gelding has already had good early support in the early betting. He finished off okay out wide on the Kensington first up. Steps to 1600m now where he has a good record and loves the sting out of the track. Blinkers on a tick.
13. I Say Hello
Progressive filly who has finished in the top three at all five of her career starts and she kept finding to finish third in the James Carr last start. This is the first time seeing wet ground and also her first try at the mile.
