ENTENTE ticks a lot of boxes here. He’s in form with a good win this same trip last time out at Rosehill, and goes well here too. From the good draw he should be able to get every possible in the run and looks hard to beat.

MONTEFILIA was the celebrated filly of her three-year-old year. She didn’t quite live up to expectations in the autumn of this year but she has worked into this prep well with two solid runs, and looks set to find her top. Some issue from a wider draw, but she has Bowman.

QUICK THINKER has been good in three runs back from a short spell this campaign, and working up towards his top, which is usually done at Randwick at or around this trip. Gate 14 is some issue but McEvoy is a big race rider and will have a plan.

SHE’S IDEEL is racing well and closed out solidly to win at Group 3 level last time out. She can go better again. She’ll have to go right back from the draw I presume, but she’s in form. Market has her pretty well found at the time of writing though.

SPIRIT RIDGE was in good form in Brisbane earlier this year, then showed at Kembla he’s going okay. Up to 2400m is a plus for him and he may go around a bit of overs here.

NO COMPROMISE is a very consistent galloper who should get his chance again. He’s up in class somewhat here, but he still has some upside to him.

CHARMS STAR I’m expecting improvement from this horse, third-up and now out to a trip that she showed in NZ was far more up her alley. She has ability, she ran second in the NZ Oaks over 2400m and after two runs for Waller in the autumn where she went well both times, she has had two quiet ones this prep. Expecting her to show something.

ZEYREK has been good in two runs back and has more improvement to come. His figures overseas were OK in just four runs, There’s bit of upside to him too and he should get a good run from the good draw.

LE DON DE VIE is hard to mark up, he has such a big range of figures he comes up with. However what I do know is that his best is certainly on wetter ground. He bolted in in the Warrnambool Cup rating highly (high enough to win this), but he hasn’t gone within 4.5 lengths of it since. He likely races on pace from the wide draw. Any extra rain makes him a stronger chance.

LUNCIES showed at Hawkesbury last prep that he has some ability. He rated okay in his three runs back this prep and should improve now fourth-up.
