Stars Of Carrum (1) ran honestly in the Mornington Cup two starts back, then struggled in the wet last start. Has had the right prep for this trip. Can run to near best.

Budd Fox (4) ran nicely two starts back, then was back in trip last start. Steps back up in distance here, has rough claims. Convict Sam (7) is a natural staying type. Ran okay last start before peaking on run late. Has rough claims. Rock Dove (12) has been up a long time. Did run well in Tasmania in February in a Listed race. Close fifth in the Adrian Knox at Randwick – doesn’t have to run that figure to be competitive here. Jenstar (16) is a staying type that’s improved each run.
