NETTUNO was heavily supported on the heavy ground at Sunshine Coast on debut and he did not let supporters down with a dominant win. He should win again.

TITIAN GODDESS chased home a smart one here on debut. Sure to be better from the outing and she can go one better in this.

FLOP TURN RIVER just got too far back on the heavy ground here on debut but was making some late ground. Drawn perfectly and expect he will be an improver.


KNIGHT MARINER is becoming a bit costly for supporters having been placed in last couple of starts. Going to stick with him in this and he goes on top.

GET THE IDEA comes into this ready third-up from a spell. Fought the race off strongly when just missed here last start and he is not far of a win.

SLOW HANDS relished the heavy ground here last start and won with ease. Meets similar field and with advantage of apprentice claim looks well placed again.


NATALIEANN showed an exciting turn-of-hoof and bolted in at Sunshine Coast last start. Can measure up to city class and gets chance to make it two in a row.

CRYMENOTEARS made it two wins from her last three starts winning at Ipswich last outing. Finds touch harder race but looks nice each way value.

STAR GAMBLE showed good speed and led throughout to win here last start. Expect he will try similar tactics and go forward again and he takes catching.


ISABELLA’S SPRING relished the heavy and finished too well to win here last start. She should get a solid pace here and chance to finish all over these.

SAYL may have just found the front a stride too early at Eagle Farm last start and was nabbed late. Drawn to get the perfect run in transit and can go one better.

YOUNGBLOOD comes into this ready to win third-up from spell. He has not been beaten all that far in either run back from break and cannot leave out.


COCO ROX resumes from a spell. She won her maiden at Grafton last time in work and progressed to competitive run in the Mode Plate before break. Drawn perfectly and can figure fresh.

Would have liked JOYOUS LEGEND to have drawn a bit closer to the rails but she come off solid trial win and would not dismiss.

AMITY GAL has been good in all three career starts. Drawn to drive through and sit in first couple and if she gets her own way will take catching.


SNITZIFY raced up on the speed and was only claimed final stages when placed here last start. Comes into this third-up from spell and will take catching.

DASH FOR DREAMS jumped to the front and gave nothing else a chance holding on to win at Ipswich last start. Expect she will be in first couple again and she takes catching.

Liked the way MONTEZ hit the line first-up at Grafton and he should have finished a little closer after being held-up. Fitter and never runs a bad race.


GO WANDJI is a smart gelding. Resumes in winning form when dead heated at Toowoomba first-up. Yet to finish any further back that third in 8 starts and he can win again.

AIDENSFIELD is screaming out to win a race since coming to Queensland. Placed in both runs chasing home a couple of smart ones. She will be right in the mix.

ALREADY BLESSED raced up on the speed and looked winner when he balanced-up at Gold Coast but just found one better late. Fitter and cannot leave out of multiples.


The win of ULYSSES here last start was enormous as he covered plenty of extra ground and was still good enough to sprint away for soft win. No reason he cannot measure up again.

VINCO won on raw ability at Toowoomba last start. Drawn to get the perfect run in transit and if he can do everything right will get his chance last 200m.

NEVER NO MORE has been placed in three of four starts this time in. Going to need some luck from horror barrier but watch for him to be powering home.


Would have liked SMART IMAGE to have drawn a little closer but he was impressive here last start and if he can get clear run from the corner can win again.

AIDENSFIELD is screaming out to win a race since coming to Queensland. Placed in both runs chasing home a couple of smart ones. She will be right in the mix.

MORE SUNDAYS resumes from a spell. Finished last prep with a solid Rosehill win. Had a trial to get ready for this and he has won two of seven fresh.
