    Top Pick
    3 Alfarris   F: 46149
      B(1) W(56.5)
     ( J-  Luke Nolen )
    Only fair last start but is suited better by this race. Gets the inside draw to jump from and it should be tough to get past in the straight.
    Main Danger
    1 Naval Warfare   F: 23X60
      B(2) W(58)
     ( J-  Michael Walker )
    Has been well backed despite some average performances this time in. Form last season was terrific, so it should be able to rebound and go close.

      B(6) W(54)
     ( J-  Jamie Kah )
     ( T-  Liam Howley )
    Placed
    Dividend : $2.30
    Imported runner which gets right down in the weights with 54kg on the back. Gets its best chance to break through.
    Include in Multis
    6 Jinda   F: 21311
      B(5) W(54)
     ( J-  Ted Nugent )
    The form runner of the field with three wins from its last four starts. Another light weight chance which should go close.

    2 US Army Ranger   F: 0X7X0
      B(4) W(57.5)
     ( J-  Michael Poy )
     ( T-  Liam Howley )
    Better than what it has been showing in recent efforts.

    Top Pick
    16 Diamond Effort   F: 211X2
      B(1) W(54)
     ( J-  Damien Oliver )
    Was heavily backed last start and ran well, but ran into a good one. This is slightly easier and carrying 54kg off the inside draw is ideal. Top chance.
    Main Danger
    3 Chess Star   F: X100X
      B(3) W(60)
     ( J-  Mark Zahra )
    Carries a big weight but it has been competitive in some tough races. Drawn well and it could continue its good fresh up record.

      B(9) W(56.5)
     ( J-  Dwayne Dunn )
    Won
    Dividends : $6.30 $2.20
    Needs a little bit of luck from a wide draw but that was a nice placing last time out. Punters are getting each-way odds which appeals.

    4 Mastering   F: 1039X
      B(4) W(60)
     ( J-  Ted Nugent )
    The money has come this morning for this one - and it has a good 'fresh' record.

    14 Ruban Bleu   F: 01631
      B(8) W(56.5)
     ( J-  Lachlan King )
    Flashed home nicely to win last time out. Has a good turn-of-foot on its day and that makes it a dangerous type.

     ( J-  Damien Oliver )
    Won
    Dividends : $2.40 $1.30
    Doesn't know how to run a bad race and that was a gutsy effort last start. Stays down in the weights and it should prove tough to beat again.
    Main Danger
    2 Music Bay   F: 2141X
      B(7) W(56.5)
     ( J-  John Allen )
    Placed
    Dividend : $1.40
    Pegged to be a stakes horse but hasn't quite lived up to that potential. However, owns ability and showed that last start. Chance.
    Next Best
    1 Savapinski   F: 5X60X
      B(6) W(58)
     ( J-  Michael Dee )
    Sparingly-raced last campaign which is a little concerning. Still, has class and has beaten better fields in the past.

    9 Bettyrae Ruby   F: 42X11
      B(1) W(54)
     ( J-  Luke Currie )
     ( T-  Tim Hughes )
    Rises right up in class but has scored back-to-back wins. Gets the inside draw and no weight on its back. Chance to score a minor upset.
    Longer Odds
    7 Hay Now   F: 10X84
      B(2) W(54)
     ( J-  Dwayne Dunn )
     ( T-  Shaun Dwyer )

    Top Pick
    3 Steel Prince   F: 1111X
      B(12) W(58.5)
     ( J-  Damien Oliver )
    Owns a spot in the Melbourne Cup and its class could shine through here. Doesn't know how to run a bad race and although short of its best, it could win at 1700m.
    Main Danger
    14 Benitoite   F: 11711
      B(6) W(54)
     ( J-  Dwayne Dunn )
    Really dug deep to score last time out, making it five wins from seven starts. Drops down in weight and it shouldn't be overlooked.
    Next Best
    8 Guizot   F: 23451
      B(2) W(54.5)
     ( J-  Linda Meech )
    Hit the line with real authority when scoring last time out. That run will give it plenty of confidence and fitness won't be an issue.
    Include in Multis
    6 Captain Cook   F: 245X5
      B(8) W(55.5)
     ( J-  John Allen )
    Placed
    Dividend : $2.60
    Did enough fresh up to suggest that it won't take long to break through. In the right hands and John Allen rides these races well.

    5 Lord Fandango   F: 4408X
      B(3) W(56.5)
     ( J-  Jordan Childs )

     ( J-  Mark Zahra )
    Won
    Dividends : $3.40 $1.50
    Disappointing last start but was ridden upside down. Better when ridden patiently and those tactics should be adopted here. Talented at best.
    Main Danger
    9 Missile Mantra   F: 11X
      B(2) W(56)
     ( J-  Damian Lane )
    Unbeaten from two starts. Both of those were big wins from off the pace and she's a talented filly in the making. Nicely drawn in barrier three.

     ( J-  Ben Melham )

    Looks to have a nice future after putting away a good field last start. Stable has a good opinion of it and punters should be confident of a good run.

    5 Peidra   F: 11
      B(7) W(57)
     ( J-  Luke Nolen )

    Dividend : $1.40
    Not getting any younger but still has plenty to give. Goes well fresh, winning its last two, and that's a good sign for this.
    Main Danger
    4 Vega Magic   F: 40X0X
      B(1) W(57)
     ( J-  Damien Oliver )
    Owns ability but has been hard to follow over the years. Inside draw is ideal and it could rail and kick away. Must jump with them to win.

      B(5) W(57)

    Owns a stack of ability and is even better going around a turn. Gets the inside draw which could make it tricky, but it won't spend much energy. Another top chance.

    1 Amphitrite   F: 1360X
      B(11) W(59)
