Track Condition: Soft 5

Rail Position: Out 2.5m entire circuit

LASTING KISS just keeps winning. She made it three straight at Lismore last start and although this a little tougher she goes on top again.

SING FOR VIOLET comes into this third-up from spell. Placed in the heavy ground here first-up then not beaten all that far at Eagle Farm last start. She will be a factor.

DIS DAH WUN is another who is set to find best third-up. She was beaten less than a length here fresh then stayed on behind the smart Miami Fleiss last start. Drawn to get all the favours.

The run of DARING BELLE was better than finishing position suggests last start when beaten less than 2 lengths. She had been placed at previous start and would not leave out of exotics.


HONORABLE SPIRIT was dominant winning two in a row at Gold Coast then he just found the in form Top Order a bit too strong last start. Back in winnable race and can return to winners stall.

BLACKLOG just found the 2400m a little beyond him at Eagle Farm last start when weakened final stages. Drawn to get the perfect run in transit and expect him to be in this for a long way.

WILD SHEILA was beaten less than a length here two starts back then finished just out of placings here last start. She cannot be left out of chances.

HOSTAGE OF WAR deserves a win this campaign. He made it seven straight placings at Ipswich last start and again must go into all multiples.


LONDON BANKER just keeps winning making it three straight here last start. Finds similar race and from ideal barrier draw should win again.

STARDOME made good late ground when placed at Eagle Farm two back then run better than finishing position suggests last start. He can sneak into a place.

HE RUNS AWAY got within a length of London Banker here last start. If he can hold that form again he will be right in the mix.

ZIGALLENE controlled the race from the front and proved too speedy here two starts back then only claimed late last start. If she gets own way up front she takes catching.


PRINCE OF BOOM looked in need of the run here first-up when just peaked last 200m. Sure to be better from the outing and will get perfect sit from ideal barrier. He can win this.

STARTANTES won with something in hand here two starts back then fid best to win here last start. No reason he cannot make it three in a row.

GLORIOUS RUBY comes into this third-up from spell. Placed in both runs back and she gets chance to return to winners stall.

BULLOO was impressive last 100m when powered away to win here last start. This a big step up but she has sharp turn-of-hoof and measure up to these.


Going to have something on KUBRICK each way. Placed at Eagle Farm first-up then was just bit one paced last start. Looking for him to find best form for this and he can figure.

MAKEDON is another ready to find best form third-up from break. Beaten when odds on at Sunshine Coast last start but this not beyond him.

FORTIFIED found them a little too slick first-up at the Gold Coast and only got going late. Strips fitter and extra distance a bonus.

SHOSHA has been racing in super form with two dominant wins this track leading into this. Drawn a little wide but is she holds form with go close to winning again.


WAPITI protested unsuccessfully when just missed here first-up from spell then he started favourite when beaten less than 2 lengths last start. Drawn to get ideal run in transit and can win this.

BALLISTIC BOY resumes in winning form when got up last couple of strides here last start. Quality gelding and no reason he will not win again.

MATOWI has been mixing his form a little this time in but if he can find his best form he can sneak into a minor spot.

WILLO TITTO won here three starts back then has followed up with a couple of NSW provincial placings. Drawn ideally and she will be prominent.


BIG BAD BRUCE finished too well for them to win here last start and he won with something in hand. Drawn to get perfect run and can win again.

REBEL SALUTE relished the heavy track and won with something in hand second-up. Racing well and chances enhanced if any rain about.

DYNAMIC THINKER showed good speed and led at Gold Coast last start. He was challenged final stages but held them off for gutsy win.


Liked the way TAVISAN accelerated to win at Sunshine Coast first-up from spell. Sure to be better from the outing and can make it two in a row.

SOXAGON resumes from spell. Quality gelding who has been solid in two trials leading into this and he can get away with this fresh.

YOU MAKE ME SMILE finished the race off soundly when placed at Eagle Farm first-up from spell. Better from the run and he won second-up last time in work.


PEPPI LA FEW is overdue for a win after three straight placings leading into this. Chased home the in form Royal Hale last start when favourite and only needs to hold that form to win this.

DREAMREACHER led all the way at eagle farm two starts back then followed up this track last start with a close placing. He may sit bit closer here and will take beating.

ROMAN AUREUS made it five straight placings this preparation when close up here last start. Racing too well to leave out of exotics.

ACROBATIC was impressive when finally worked into the clear winning here two starts back then he just found one better last start. Drawn bit awkwardly but cannot leave out.
