MONTEFILIA‘s run in the Derby last week was better than it looks on paper. She was certainly on the inferior ground in the straight down near the rail. She fought it out well and the prospect of a fairer track suits her greatly. I think we’ll see her best.

HUNGRY HEART scored a big win against the pattern of the day two weeks ago at Rosehill. It was a hot rail bias, nothing ran on all day and she descended on Harmony Rose late. She has to go to the well three times in a row here and go an extra 400m. Both of those are little queries but she’s fit and in form and rating well enough to win.

AMARELINHA is a classy Kiwi filly making the trip across. She won the NZ Oaks last start and was impressive in doing that. Her figures in NZ are good and they make her a live winning chance here. It’s always a bit of a query for them to bring it across the dutch, but many have done so successfully, and she’s in good hands.

HARMONY ROSE just went a bit quick in front in the Vinery Stud and was vulnerable late, however that being said she did have the aid of a savage rail bias in her favour that day. It is unlikely to be like that at this meet, and she’s also up another 400 metres which is some query, but only a little. Genuine hope… but I again think the market is too short on her.

BARGAIN put in a big closing run in the Adrian Knox last week over the 2000 metres. She gave every indication that 2400 metres would be very suitable, and now gets McDonald on for this. Goes well.

DUAIS won the Adrian Knox well enough and found the line like 2400 metres won’t be a problem. This is harder though as that didn’t rate overly high, and the wide gate is some issue. Will need to improve again… but can’t say she cannot.
