Talented colt who has lost his way a bit since winning the Blue Sapphire at Caulfield during the spring. If he can find his best he is right in this.
2. Beau Rossa
Beau Rossa bolted in by seven lengths two back at Sandown then probably should of won last start. He is clearly very talented but does come back 400m in distance which is some query. Should be in the finish.
3. Ocean Beyond
Unbeaten gelding resuming. He won a maiden on debut at Geelong, then won the Listed McKenzie Stakes at Moonee Valley. Should settle handy and is capable of measuring up with natural improvement.
Improved second up to run third in a benchmark 78 this track. Not sure if that’s good enough for this?
5. Outlaws Revenge
Impressive winning his first three starts, however found listed level a bridge too far last time. Deep into his first prep now is a concern for me.
6. Litchfield County
Was able to get the better of Curran (impressive winner last week at Caulfield) at Sandown on March 17 and hasn’t been far away at his last two. D Oliver goes on. Each way chance!
7. Lunar Hero
Trained by Dan McCarthy at Wangaratta. He won a benchmark 60 here two starts ago but is likely to be out classed.
Talented filly who wasn’t far off September Run during the spring. She beat a good field on resumption at Caulfield then didn’t have the best of luck in the Redelva last start. Potentially tricky map again but if the breaks go her way she can be in the finish.
Ultra consistent having finished in the top two at eight of her nine starts. She has been given a freshen up since back to back seconds at Caulfield in February and can play a role here.
Has won four of eight. She raced in between horses in the Redelva where she looked to be travelling with no where to go until the last 250m. She hit the line fairly well once clear and is in the mix again here.
Bounced back from a poor Moonee Valley run to finish second in a benchmark 84 at Caulfield. She is a very consistent on pacer who has missed a place just once in her career.
12. Smokin’ Val
Made her run down the outside and looked the winner of the Redelva before Muntaseera burst through to grab her late. She is drawn to go back and attempt a sweeping run down the outside again. Has an each way chance.
