STAY INSIDE had a great win two back on the wet, then he had no luck last start. But he found the line well when he got clear. I’m expecting improvement off that here. He will just need a little luck if he’s cluttered up midfield on the rail to get clear running. But he’s right in the finish if he gets it.

FOUR MOVES AHEAD has been good in both her wins to date. She is a big, strong type who has already shown she gets through the wet. There’s some issue for her with the gate though, she could end up working or get posted. Nash will need a really good ride on her

PROFITEER is very talented galloper but he does himself no favours by over-racing, and that probably got him beaten last start. This is his first look at a seriously wet track, though there’s a few in that boat. The market has him favourite on pure ability but I can’t have him that short. That being said, on exposed form he’s the best horse in the race.

ANAMOE closed it out well to run down Profiteer last start, and I don’t mind the gate because I think he can get back with a trail and hook to the middle. He looked good on the line last start and can win this.

ARTORIUS was suited in the Blue Diamond by the fast pace and took advantage by getting over the top. He’ll probably get a similar pace here so gets his chance again. One of many hopes here

INGRATIATING gets the blinkers back on after they were off last week – he’s being set for this. He has the runs on the board already, rating well in Melbourne. It’s his first look at anything other than a dry track, so that’s of course a query. He gets chance with the pace on though.

MALLORY is a roughie who has already shown she handles the wet. She closed it out well in her win here two back and that augers well for this. She’ll need a new level on that but is some chance. The pace suits for her to run on.

SWIFT WITNESS closed it out really strongly last start and just missed. She’s really good on the line and I think she’ll improve markedly here and is over the odds. Though she does need a big step up to actually win.

HOME AFFAIRS probably had his chance last start, but at least he handles the wet and maps in an okay spot here again. The camp and the jock have to be respected.
