Geelong R1 No.4 - BATTLE OF TROY

Gelding was excellent when only just being nabbed late at Moonee Valley over 1200m, sat off a genuine tempo and had every right to compound late. Can settle leading this bunch up (like the progression to 1400m) and kick at the top of straight. Significant drop in quality here.
Battle Of Troy - 1pt @ 1.5Won 0.5pts


Debuted in a hot race in Adelaide and had genuine excuses (stewards found horse pulled up with heat stress), prior to that trialled well and has again trialled since in good time. Draws nicely for the box seat run and I think the more relaxed tempo of the 1300m will be ideal. Fancy a smart galloper in the making

Sunshine Coast R6 No.2 - THE ILIAD

Former Sydney-sider having its first start since moving to Queensland, most recent effort over the mile two weeks ago was sound - chased hard from the rear of the field to only go down 1.6 lengths (winner smart!) which stacks up nicely here. Draws for the gun run and should simply be too good.

Port Lincoln R2 No.2 - I'M OUT

Two clear standouts in the race (this being one of them) and with that in mind siding with I'm Out due to the discrepancy in the market. Was very good over the 1100m three weeks ago leading them up and only being caught late. Has been kept on the fresher side for this (keen on the drop back to 1000m) and again looks like the natural leader, pattern should suit.
