    The 'Day's Best'
    4 Blackmagicwoman   F: X9591
      B(5) W(54)
     ( J-  Eilish McCall )
    Gutsy win last time out and that form should stack up nicely for this. Likes the track and it gets in with only 51kg.
    Main Danger
    2 Pacorus   F: 76552
      B(2) W(54)
     ( J-  Darren Danis )
     ( T-  Chris Wood )
    Won
    Dividends : $4.00 $2.20
    Another well-weighted runner at 52kg. Much better run for second last start and it should be running close here.
    Next Best
    1 Zacada   F: 13X97
      B(1) W(60)
    Classy customer but it does have to carry the 60kg on a heavy track. Can't be doubting its ability however. Goes into the mix.
    Include in Multis
    6 Mont Ventoux   F: 31412
      B(4) W(54)
     ( J-  Chris Dell )
    Placed
    Dividend : $2.00
    Has shown a likely for winter conditions. Drawn well and it was hitting the line nicely last start. Won't be far away.
    Longer Odds
    7 Windy Height   F: 05206
      B(7) W(54)
     ( J-  Anna Jones )
    Never too far away and it could add some value.

    Some tough stayers lining up here

    Top Pick
    7 London Bound   F: 18
      B(7) W(55.5)
     ( J-  Craig Grylls )
    Looked good winning on debut and although average last start, this looks more suitable. Drawn well and there has been good money put on throughout the week.
    Main Danger
    6 Avadane   F: 414X
      B(3) W(55.5)
     ( J-  Leith Innes )
     ( T-  Lance Noble )
    Took on some good opposition last campaign. Scored a handy win two back and it looks well-placed here. Top chance.
    Next Best
    5 She's A Lady   F: X12X4
      B(6) W(55.5)
    Worked into the race nicely last time out. Gets a chance to win here and the conditions shouldn't be a problem. Nice odds on offer.
    Include in Multis
    8 Sorrentina   F: 3
      B(4) W(54)
    Won
    Dividends : $6.10 $1.80
    Did enough to run well for third on debut. This stable is starting to heat up and with only 54kg on the back, that brings it into contention.
    Longer Odds
    9 Tears Of Jupiter   F: 94X
      B(5) W(54)
    Has talent and just needs to show it on race day.

     ( T-  Nigel Tiley )
    Won
    Dividends : $3.20 $1.70
    Beaten on its merits last start but dropping to 51kg is ideal for this. Looked good winning back-to-back races prior. Goes on top.

      B(4) W(57)
    Placed

      B(2) W(57.5)
     ( J-  Masa Hashizume )

      B(1) W(54)
     ( J-  Ryoya Kozaki )

      B(3) W(54)
     ( T-  Steven Cole )
