The Jason Formosa trained TIGGA TOY has been running good time at Healsville and looks ready to step up here. With great early speed in the small field, I expect he will be hard to catch. He looks too good for his rivals. ZIPPING SPUD from the check draw has early speed and looks the main danger.
Tip: TIGGA TOY @ $1.65
FREYA THE SLAYER ticks all the boxes from the inside draw. Nine career wins, including a win at her only try at the 600 metres makes her a standout. Expect her to hold up from the rails and be far too good for her rivals. TWISTED REALITY looks the best of the Blake Pursell trained trio in the race, and he will be finishing strongly for exotics.
The three main chances in the race, SPECIAL KARMAR (1), SUSTAIN THE RAGE (2) and ZIPPING COSMO (3) have drawn the inside boxes and will provide the early speed in the race. SUSTAIN THE RAGE struggles to run out a strong 600 metres and looks to be a sitting shot for ZIPPING COSMO who will stalk him in the run. COSMO has been racing consistently of late and should be reaching peak fitness. With a win and second over the 600 metres at the Creek, he looks the winner.
