Rail Position: True entire circuit

MASTER MARKO was a drifting favourite at Sunshine Coast first-up from spell but he only got going when the race was all over. Out to the 1600m looks ideal.

CHAYSE ‘N’ TANYA missed the starts and she just got a bit too far off them first-up from break. Fitter and from inside gate she will get her chances.

DARKENED DESTINY did some early work to go forward and sit on pace last start. He just laid out late and that cost him winning. Can make amends.


STREET DANCER started long odds on and he got the job done at Eagle Farm last start. Drawn perfectly and he can make it three wins from last four starts.

CASINO MONDIAL chased home well enough when placed at Eagle Farm last start. Will get perfect run in behind the speed and he should get his chance.

PRINCE ALBY was making good late ground when placed at Sunshine Coast first-up. Fitter from the outing and he will be in mix.


GLAMBORGINI looks close to another win. She was brave when placed at Beaudesert last start and from ideal barrier here happy to put her on top.

NORTHERN EXPRESS started long odds on and won with ease at Warwick last start. Will be better from that run and can go on with it in this.

SAILOR’S SECRET has been racing in consistent form. Won at Ipswich first-up then has been placed in two runs since. Gets chance to return to winners stall.


JOHNNY THUNDER is screaming out to win his maiden. Had plenty of chances but he has been racing well this campaign and will not get better chance than this.

LANDSBOROUGH LAD started favourite at Ipswich first-up from spell and liked the way he got to the line when placed. Will be better from the outing and can go one better.

RED HOT RUBIX did a few things wrong but he still got home nicely when placed on debut at Eagle Farm. Only needs natural improvement to be right in this.


RED WAVE just found the step up to Group 2 class a little too hot last start when faded final stages. Back in right race and previous form good enough.

KISS MY MILLO relished the heavy ground and got the prize at Sunshine Coast last start. He will get back but may go on with it here.

NOM DE PLUME is a Kiwi filly that had no luck on the heavy at Sunshine Coast at first Australian start. Drawn ideally and she will get much better run here.


RINGMASTER was well supported into favourite at Warwick Farm on debut and he chased home well enough into second spot. Better from the race experience.

RUDYARD is a Kiwi gelding who won his maiden back home on debut then placed at next start. Looks promising and can measure up to these.

CHAYSE ‘N’ ARTIE relished the heavy ground winning at Sunshine Coast last start. Now he has broken maiden status her can go on with it.


RATHLIN looks ready to win. Placed in his last three starts and from ideal barrier he gets the perfect sit and can win this.

PIVOTAL MOTION led them up at Ipswich last start and was only claimed final stages. If he can find the front again and get own way will take catching.

AVOWAL was making good late ground at Eagle Farm last start. If he can sit a touch closer in this he can finish over the top of these.


HE IS won his first couple of starts to begin this campaign then he was favourite at Eagle Farm last start but did not finish race off. He can bounce back in this.

VITESSE FRANCAIS finished too well after quiet ride at Ipswich two back then he was not far away in town last start. Must include in exotics.

RAGING POLE made good late ground at Ipswich last start when ran into a minor placing. Finds similar and he can sneak into place again.

Tip: HE IS

THE BIG GOODBYE comes into this third-up from spell. He has been close up when placed in both runs back and gets chance to return to winners stall.

JACKSPRAT resumes from break. He is yet to be placed in any of his first-up tries and although may need the outing this looks a winnable race.

KAVAK is threatening to win a race like this. Placed in his last couple of starts and although drawn a touch wide would not leave out.
