VANGELIC is an mprover. She’ll likely take the sit behind this good tempo, unlike last start when she was forced to race wide on the good tempo and fought on really well. That run will have brought her on very well for fitness. She has no weight on her back at all and a new peak here looks a strong chance, which makes her a strong chance!

CHAILLOT put in a strong return at Flemington, winning and going 107, and can go better than that. She’s still a very lightly raced four-year-old mare. It’s hard to know what her ultimate top is but she’ll like the pace on here and she’ll be coming home hard

SUBPOENAED had a strong win in a key lead-up race, the Millie Fox. She rated 111 there, her top, and she probably won’t improve further from that. But that rating makes her a solid winning chance on this. Goes well wet and dry, the 1500m should suit fine – it’s only 100m further – and she’ll sit off this hot pace for Tommy Berry. A lot to like for me.

FORBIDDEN LOVE is a strong chance here. She won well last start at the Randwick 1400m, she’s a very reliable type who should hold that figure and on the map she gets her chance. One of the key chances here.

SOVEREIGN AWARD had a strong win over the mile in Melbourne last start when she set a solid tempo (without going crazy). She’s drawn wide so Rachel King probably has to press on and try the same tactics, but in her favour is the drop back 100m to 1500m. She could be very hard to catch.

REELEM IN RUBY is a roughie with a chance at cricket score odds. She was reasonable first-up when she was on the worst ground, and had nearly a year off going into it. Then she didn’t see much daylight second-up. She’ll be fitter for those runs back and can improve sharply. Her career peak is here at 1400m, too. She has drawn wide… that’s an issue but at least it means if she gets in with a trail, she should get clear air to run on down the middle.

MIZZY found her top at Randwick last start. She might need to find a little more than that and might end up in a speed battle, but she’s in form

ALL SAINTS EVE didn’t have a great deal of luck first-up and yet still rated well. I think she can improve off that. She has to find a new peak to win here but I don’t think we’ve seen her top yet.

TRICKY GAL is back well this prep and I’m really expecting a run at or close to her peak here. Whether that’s enough to win remains to be seen. Her best is 109, but she’ll get her chance on the map too. She should be right up there at the pointy end

RICH HIPS was back well resuming at Caulfield with a good win, and can take the sit camped off the good tempo here. It’s her first look the Sydney way of going, but she’s in form and I don’t think we’ve seen her career top just yet.
