Track Condition: Soft 5

Rail Position: Out 4m, entire circuit

This is going to be a particularly nice 3YO race. SMART IMAGE for Team Snowden looked a big show but has been withdrawn.

CULTURAL AMNESIA is fast and probably leads these. Was scratched from an easier race Friday night for this. Won like a beauty first-up last start. Have in your numbers.

His stablemate, ZOUMIST, has talent too and looked great winning an easier race first-up also, her’s being at Gosford when she made good ground late. Suited this journey.


PAPAL WARRIOR will take beating here. From this favourable draw can slot in about 4th then come home hard. Was solid when 4th first-up in this grade and is fitter now. Must be in your numbers.

ELLSBERG is lightly raced but does look nicely placed here. Has genuine speed and talent and the draw, the trip, the weight tick many boxes. Is fitter now and could be a touch better than all these.

INSTANT ATTRACTION has won two of his past three and just seems to now, that the penny has dropped, to be right up to this grade.  Has claims.



Big weight for DEADLY IMPACT but he’s on the quick back-up here after sitting deep and coming hard for 2nd in a tough Kembla race last start. Trip looks idea.

Off this draw the in-form RUMBERELLA must rate a threat. Any horse going into a Highway with a pair of recent wins back to back on resume is a big chance.

POST FREE fits the bill here too winning past two in the bush. Looks very well weighted after the claim.  Track and trip should suit and watch for him late.



What a great betting race. Lots of chances. Chris Waller looks pretty well served.

PROSPECTUS had really strong form this level up in Qld then made steady ground late for 4th when back in NSW. Has claims.

The stablemate to Prospectus, WAIRERE FALLS is bred to ant this trip and to be honest he has been racing as if this would suit him too. Has been dropping to the rear and making long runs. Won a BM 72 doing that and was a good 4th last start in Saturday grade. Big show.

THE ELANORA is only a 3YO but his last win was at Gr 3 level last start. Appears very talented and could smash these.



Tough race. SPECIAL MISSILE when at his best is probably the best horse in this field. But he’s first-up here and his first-up record isn’t flash. The claim today helps. Deserves a change of luck.

EDISON is in sparkling form runner 2nd on both occasions this campaign. Bad draw so probably has to work a bit from out wide. Is fit though.

ASHARANI is 3rd up here. ran a terrific race this grade when 2nd at first start this campaign then not so terrific when 9th last start. Failed to run on. Is hit and miss but can dash late.


Looks like a nice field. ACROSS DUBAI looks to have found form and his 3rd last start in similar company was a nice enough effort. On home track here rates highly. Have in your numbers.

The win by his stablemate ACCOUNTABILITY stamped him a star of the summer coming up. It was his 2ndf on the bounce and he looks in this up to his ear lobes. Has the rails draw again and may be back better than ever.

PROLETARIAT hasn’t done a great deal for a while but there was enough in his 5th last start to say he might have turned the corner.


I fully expect the Godolphin sprinter PANDEMIC to run very well here. He is third up, his last start 4th was a top effort under the circumstances, and there has been a truckload of cash placed on him already.

POETIC CHARMER is smart and resumes here. Best work is while fresh. Danger.

HULK just keeps getting into these tougher races, down in the weights. He has been very well placed and was so game winning last start. Big show again.



Godolphin teams with Hughie here with AMERCEMENT. Poor run first-up but is better than that and might just turn it on late in this. Sure to run on.

INVINCIANO did look great winning her last two before spelling last campaign. DSoes boast good first-up stats so must be included.

SAUSEDGE is 3rd up and is ready to win. She is talented but does get into bother a fair bit. Really fit now though.

IN LIGHTEN ME can run boldly too now 2nd up.


Really tough contest to work out. If the real BIG PARADE turns up, he can brain these. But he has been withdrawn today.

SURREAL STEP is very close to a win. Is 4th up, has run some slashing races leading into this, and she has her foot on the till. Big show.

There should be a lot of speed on in this race and that will suit DUNBRODY POWER. She can fly late and being 3rd up means she is ready to do just that.
