GRAVITATE placed at Canberra when resuming. Wasn't far from the winner in a race at Warwick Farm last time and is fitter second-up.
HOW SWEET IT IS improved at second career start to finish on the placegetters’ heels at Hawkesbury. Rates as one of the chances with further improvement here again.
PORTLAND PLACE finished her race off okay at Taree on debut. All the better for the experience and goes in all the exotics after drawing an ideal gate.

RADICAL IMPACT doesn't win out of turn but placed in four of last five runs. A must for the exotics from an ideal gate.
WING SNIPPER two wins and three placings from six starts. Just needs even luck from an awkward gate to be right in the finish again.
SENSE OF PLAY placed two from three at this track and distance and definite place prospects again.
