6 Duke Of Ellington (Maher / Nolen): Ran well at Flemington before being unsuited at Stawell last start.
7 Hursley (Waller / Stackhouse): honest horse, performs to the same level every time it goes out. Has ran well twice over this course.
8 Zahspeed (O’Brien / Thornton): fourth-up from a spell, which has been a winner in two previous campaigns. Over a similar trip to those wins here.
9 O’Lonera (Alderson / Mertens): ran terrific three runs back at Yarra Glen before getting back to last last start. Won twice over this trip last winter and is a sneaky chance at odds.
10 Overberg (Maher / Yendall): worked up on the speed last start before tiring late. Fifth run in, this campaign, out to 2000m, ready to peak.
11 Grand Dreamer (Smerdon / Thompson): quick jump to 2000m here but has had a good trial since last run. Has always looked a 2000m horse, may want it wetter than this but is a chance.
12 Charlevoix (Hayes & Dabernig / A Mallyon): second-up for the new camp. Was never likely first up but does run well at 2000 metres plus.
15 Tears Of Joy (Kavanagh / Allen): was terrible last week, but did the same last prep and improved hugely off a quick backup to run well over 2000m. Could do the same here.
1 Mongolian Wolf (Weir / Aitken): former New Zealand horse, has had one start for Weir on the heavy and ran away from them. Was entered for Doomben but couldn’t get a flight so runs here. Giving plenty of weight to the field, but it probably should be more.
2 All Out Of Love (Hayes & Dabernig / Cory Parish): ran on strong over 1600m at Pakenham, running the quickest sectionals of the day, and was strong through line. Will get the 2000m.
5 Ceylon (Busuttin & Young / Allen): Ran solidly at Bendigo, first time at the trip here but looks to be able to handle it.
8 Fontein Lad (Eurell / Beriman): very consistent horse. Slightly back in trip, but always runs well at this distance.
14 So Poysed (Laming / Mertens): ran well over 1400m at Bendigo and Caulfield. Was well beaten last start but finished okay behind a leader who smashed them all. Sneaky chance at odds.
15 San Vincenzo (Moroney / J Bayliss): will race on the pace. Was solid through the line at Benalla and can handle the distance.
1 Wise Hero (John Price / Allen): ran well first-up in a blanket finish. Honest.
2 Artie Dee Two (Weir / Nolen): ran terrific at the Valley and goes best there. I liked him last start but he blew up.
5 Bord De Gain (Kavanagh / Thompson): comes through the same race as Wise Hero, is honest enough.
8 Sheriff John Stone (Maher / Caserta): another through that same race. Got a long way back from a wide barrier and is drawn better here.
10 Katsuro (Mick Price / Newitt): from the same race again and another honest goer.
11 Enigman (Maher / Mertens): resumes for second prep. Won on debut at Bairnsdale and then had no luck at Flemington. Has trialled alright since and could be a natural improver.
2 Tykiato (Price / Nolen): won over 1100m here on Boxing Day. Was also good here last start at 1400m, but back to 1200m tomorrow is better.
7 Grey Street (McArdle / Thompson): not a great record at 1200m, but past two were good at 1100m and might be stronger this time around.
9 Majestic Lass (Hayes & Dabernig / Aitken): sneaky chance… battled away well first-up on a good pace, produced peak rating here over this distance second-up last prep. Natural improver.
10 Invincible Heart (Mick Price / Mertens): coming off a freshen-up. Trialled okay, has ran well here in the past, some chance.
15 Carterista (Eurell / Beriman): missed the start last time out before running the best sectionals of the day and running right on. Ran second here on debut over 1100m. Fourth-up here so should be fit and ready to go.
