Last Chance strung together three consecutive wins over this course and distance last year and rates highly to add to his impressive resume today.
The four-year-old by Tycoon Ruler strips fitter for his last start second where he stormed the line to finish three-quarters of a length behind Frugal over the 1100m and also has a placing to his name on the soft.
He maps to get a nice run from mid-field and has plenty working in his favour here.
Fulmina showed plenty of ability in her comfortable maiden win at Kembla Grange and is a horse worth following now in her return to the races.
The three-year-old by Snitzel trailed beautifully in her latest jump out at Warwick Farm where she was asked to quicken under Robbie Dolan approaching the 200m. I thought she found the line beautifully that day and I like the fact she’s a 2.5kg claimer here with Tom Sherry back in the saddle.
She hasn’t run a bad race yet, and from a good gate, she has serious claims.
Elle A Walking drops 5kg from his last start fourth at Mackay with apprentice Elyce Smith stepping back into the saddle.
The pair rattled home for second three runs back and I think they can go one better here from the inside draw.
The seven-year-old has won twice over this course and distance and will appreciate the step back in distance following his last start fourth over the 1800m. He also likes the sting out of the track, so there’s plenty to like here.
Whispered was a first-up winner over this distance at Kembla Grange back in March and looks a likely improver based on his last start second over the course and distance.
The Godolphin-trained three-year-old had an eye-catching run where he rattled home to find the placings and probably would have won with an extra 50m to spare.
The son of Lonhro is yet to run a bad race over this distance and rates as a major player to end the day.
