Moonee Valley R3 No.2 – BATTLE OF TROY
Really nice horse returning here off a smart jumpout at Flemington. Had form as a younger horse around the likes of Bassett & Kinglike (genuine group class colts!) which will stand up enormously in a race like this. Draws for a perfect run in transit from gate 3 and gets the services of the in-form Avdulla, like him for this.

Horsham R5 No.1 – GLENROWAN PRINCE
Super honest this 4yo gelding and just also happens to be in ripping form, won well over the 1000m at Seymour (race rated ok) in a pretty handy field and now steps to the 1200m which should arguably be more suitable. Drawn for a lovely run in behind the leaders and not bothered by the big weight.

Kilcoy R2 No.1 – ROUBAIX
Been racing well without winning this fella but fancy this is his chance to break through. Drops back to the 1200m (thankfully!) which is a major tick to begin with and draws to be handy to the speed (at Kilcoy is a must). Gets in well at the weights after the claim and looks the clear ratings horse to win this against some pretty ordinary rivals.
