Track Condition: Good 4

Rail Position: Out 6m entire circuit

EBHAAR looked impressive winning her only trial at Randwick then came to Melbourne and was good in jumpout. She looks smart and sure to have plenty of support.

BRERETON won the Maribyrnong Plate at Flemington last start and sure to improve again at third start. Drawn ideally and he can win again.

MOKO made good impression winning jumpout and although drawn little awkwardly she looks to have the ability to be right in the mix on debut.

SILVANITO chased home Ebhaar in recent jumpout. Drawn to get the perfect run in transit and from the Godolphin stable must include.


Long time since a horse has won by as far as TRUE MARVEL did at The Valley last start. That made it three wins from his last four starts and happy to put him on top again.

ACCOUNTABILITY is racing as though the step out to the two miles will be ideal. He has been grinding home soundly at last couple and he gets his chance to win in this.

MONMOUTH raced on the speed on the heavy ground at Cranbourne last start and held on for brave placing. He will sit forward again and sure to be prominent for a long way.

LION’S SHARE was placed at Geelong two starts back then battled on well enough at Flemington last start. She can sneak a place.


DECENT RAINE finally found her best form when she demolished them at Ballarat last start. Needs some luck from her wide gate but no reason she cannot win again.

STAR OF CHAOS chased home the smart Espiona in Listed company at Flemington last start. She has won two previous starts and make in winnable race.

SPINNING looked touch unlucky not to have won at Lakeside last start when held-up final stages. She can sneak a place in this field.

LADY OF HONOUR is racing in super form winning first couple this time in with authority. Drawn to get the perfect run in transit and will have last crack at these.


ENTHAAR chased home soundly when placed behind the smart Profiteer at Flemington first-up. She will be better from the outing and she can get away with this.

STARRY LEGEND was making good late ground when not beaten all that far at Ballarat last start. Drawn to get the perfect run and he can figure.

CURRAN is so honest and been racing consistent in quality races. Needs an ounce of luck from barrier draw but expect him to be competitive.

VARDA hit the line hard to grab placing at Flemington last start. Drawn wide but she will get back and look for her to be making good late ground.


Going to have something each way on ZING third-up from spell. Just missed at Randwick first-up then stayed on at Flemington last start. Looks nice value.

STEINEM was not disgraced in Group 1 company last start despite a wide run. Placed here two starts back and this a winnable race.

AGREEABLE chased home solidly winning here two starts back then she should have finished closer last start. She can bounce back and be in finish again.

QUANTUM MECHANIC was competitive in the G1 Cantala last start and had been beaten just on 2 lengths in the Toorak previously. Would not leave her out of exotics.


FESTIVAL DANCER just keeps winning. Made it four in a row winning the Newcastle Spring Stakes last start. Smart filly drawn perfectly and if she gets around Caulfield can win this.

PORT LOUIS loomed to win at Flemington last start but just found one better final stages. Screaming out for a win and this nice race for him.

CARDINAL GEM finished the race off strongly when beaten less than 2 lengths at Flemington last start. Third-up from spell and ready to find best form.


SPANISH MISSION chased bravely when placed in the Melbourne Cup at first Australian start. Looks perfectly placed at weight-for-age and may just be too good for these.

WARNING made it two in a row with an emphatic Queen Elizabeth Stakes win last start. He is racing in super form and from inside gate will get all the favours.

LUNAR FLARE was disappointing when got too far back in the Queen Elizabeth last start. She had been impressive winning the Moonee Valley Cup at previous start and can bounce back in this.

WENTWOOD was strong winning the Bendigo Cup two starts back then brave when placed at Flemington last outing. That form good enough to be included in exotics.


OUR PLAYBOY finished too well to get the job done at Flemington two starts back then closed hard to just miss in Cranbourne Cup last start. Perfectly drawn and can win this.

DJUKON chased home strongly and arrived in time to win at Flemington last start. Only needs to hold that form to be a factor.

STARELLE is screaming out for a win with consistent form leading into this. Hit the line hard when placed at Flemington last start and she can sneak a minor spot.

DEFIBRILLATE was little disappointing in the Ballarat Cup last start. He is better than that and can bounce back to best in this field.


AGE OF CHIVALRY was brave winning the Chatham Stakes at Flemington two starts back then just battled late on the heavy ground in the Cranbourne Cup. He can bounce back to best.

Liked the way SINAWANN chased home at first Australian start in the Chatham. Sure to be better from the outing and he will be right in the mix.

RANIER did enough first-up from spell and sure to be better from the outing. Drawn to get ideal run and only needs some luck last 200m to be right in this.

CROSSHAVEN stayed tough when just missed Age Of Chivalry at Flemington last start. Only needs to hold that form to be a factor.
