Chased well to just miss behind Bello Beau after being held up down the straight. Ideally drawn and is one of the main chances.

11. Geegees Gemstone (7)

Won 4 races in a row before being disappointed for a run near the 100m and finishing 1.7 lengths 6th behind Bello Beau last start. Forgive last run. Can be in the finish again.
