Track Condition: Soft 5

Rail Position: Out 8.5m, entire circuit

EXPRESS FANTASY did enough in both her starts at first prep to suggest she has ability. Given a good hit out in recent trial and happy to put her on top.

ZOUKINA comes into this off the back of two solid placings. She looks close to win and gets her chance in this field.

TOPLINE did not get all that much luck first-up at Ipswich but still ran into a minor placing. Strips fitter and would not leave out.

ADD ME SOME is a debutante that has been solid in his trials. If any stable support would respect.


ACROBATIC was well supported on debut but after doing some work early faded final stages. Given a solid hit out winning recent trial and he can win this fresh.

SQUIRREL HUNTER placed at Sunshine Coast before holding ground final stages here last start. Drawn ideally and can get away with this.

HIGH HANDED is a debutant that was not beaten all that far in only trial. Watch for market moves.

BOOM RANGA has drawn a little awkwardly but he comes off a strong last start Ipswich placing and would include in multiples.


GOLDSCHLAGER comes out of a competitive run in Listed company. She was beaten less than a length a back to maiden class gets her chance to win.

KHANJAR has been well supported in both spaced runs and she has been solid. If she is right she looks to have the talent to worry these.

WINTER RAIN was good when placed here two starts back then followed that up with another competitive run at Toowoomba. This a nice race.

THINK GLORY has to contend with a wide gate on debut but trial form solid and must respect especially if any stable support


TRACY MAY has enjoyed coming up to Queensland having won both starts this time in. No reason she will not make it three straight.

SOUL STAR resumes. She was always competitive in her races in Sydney last time in work. Only needs to bring that form up North to be a factor.

LADY APPLETON gets the perfect run from her inside gate. She was touch disappointing here last start but has shown enough to be included in chances.

ZOUVILLA resumes from spell. Competitive in some nice races last campaign and trial will have him fit for this.


LUNAR LIGHT was competitive in Listed company in Adelaide two starts back and that form would be superior to these. Drawn to get the perfect run in behind the speed and she looks tough to beat.

BOLD ARIAL has taken on Listed races in last couple and been well held. Gets back in right race and would not be surprised to see in finish.

PHANTOM FALCON looked like he would benefit from his first-up run when faded late. Expect he will be better from the race experience.

THE WILD ONE battled on the heavy last start but two previous placings suggest he can win this.


HALLOWED GIRL gets her chance to win this prep. Been competitive in all three runs leading into this and she looks nice each way wager.

NITROGLYCERINE took on a slightly better race here last start and was always back in second half. He gets back in right class here and drawn to get nice run in transit.

REBEL SALUTE started a short priced favourite at Ipswich last start and got up last stride. Drawn ideally and can go on with it here.

LUVYOUANYTIME is another coming off a maiden win but his was more emphatic winning by over 10 lengths at Toowoomba. Will take some catching.


LASHONI started favourite here last start but she was never happy and finished well back. Placed at Gold Coast previous start and if she can find that form looks safe each way bet.

TYCOON STREET looked home when hit the front at Ipswich last start but was claimed final stages. Sure to roll forward and she will be competitive for a long way.

HIDDEN BUDGET is racing in competitive form and from ideal barrier looks a winning chance.

SHE ZA BOSS did it tough at Ipswich last start but still finished too well. Would not leave her out of multiples.


GLEN ORD has filled the runner up position in all three starts this time in and he deserves a win this campaign. Drawn bit awkwardly but will go on top at each way value..

TATCEE looked impressive when she drove clear to win at Ipswich last start. Makes her own luck going forward and will take beating..

STARKERS has plenty of speed and would be looking for her to drive through and lead these. If he gets right run will take catching.

ZOULOU DANCER has won her last two starts. Needs some luck from wide gate but would not leave out of multiples.
