2 Kiwia (Weir / Childs) – has hit the line strongly last two starts and looks suited to the 2000m.
4 Guangzhou (Hayes & Dabernig / Dee) – strong to the line last start and another who looks the goods for 2000m.
7 Royal Order (Kent / J Bayliss) a real staying type who has got back in its first two starts and hit the line strong.
12 Tell The Truth (Noblet / Thompson) – ran on well behind Guangzhou last start and now meets again significantly better at the weights.
1 Charmed Harmony (Sadler / Mott) – really wasn’t suited last start and never got any peace. Gets senior rider on.
2 Royal Rapture (Weir / Oliver) – did fail on the heavy at Warrnambool first-up, but displayed very good figures last prep.
3 Mihany (Hayes & Dabernig / Mertens) – wasn’t suited first-up down the straight, but has a good record second-up.
4 Loresho (Weir / Childs) – hasn’t raced for 650 days so a major unknown. Old history is very solid against very good horses, and had a decent jumpout.
6 Sovereign Nation (Hayes & Dabernig / Stackhouse) – won well first up and should hold that form here.
7 Tshahitsi (Crook & Miller / McCoull) – sat wide the whole way in the Echuca Cup before dashign away, goes well for jockey.
10 Airalign (Cowan / Thompson) – simply flies second-up.
13 Radipole (Moroney / Higgins) – good form overseas but played up badly here first start. Had excuses and had a jump-out since displaying better manners.
1 Nasdex (Maher / Mott) – fast horse, drawn out wide, should get to the better ground.
2 Removal (Ryan / Melham) – honest galloper and has won past two on wet ground.
3 Dam Ready (Hayes & Dabernig / Mertens) – 3YO resuming here, doesn’t win often but has a good bank of ratings.
4 Invincible Al (Payne / TBC ) – wasn’t suited first-up but also has good bank of ratings from last prep.
5 Overstep (Waller / Newitt) – ran well over 1200m last start and comes back to 1000m here.
6 Epic Moment (Price / Dee) – honest and racing very consistently.
11 Gougers (Robert Smerdon / Aitken) – had no luck at Cranbourne where held up down the straight and looked to have plenty to give.
2 Rewarding Effort (Alderson / Thompson) – ran well first up over 1000m and goes well second-up.
5 Schism (Maher / Aitken) – wasn’t suited at Morphettville but previous couple to that were good.
6 Nikitas (Weir / Childs) – hit the line well the other day, is third-up here and ready to run to peak.
11 Approved Anger (Weir / Mertens) – is also third-up off a long spell and should be able to step up here.
14 Valliano (Hayes & Dabernig / Oliver) – another 3YO, ran well last start, honest.
18 Pattern (Hickmott / TBC) – won two out of three and looked promising, but now hasn’t raced for nearly 500 days. But they’ve booked a good rider and the stable has a habit of getting horses fit. Wouldn’t totally surprise.
