Race 6 Evans & Son Jewellers
I’ve always preferred this chaser from an inside draw. Last start over this trip he used the inside draw to perfection, clicked through his gears nicely and railed superbly to win on the line. I don’t think he will get those benefits here with a stack of early pace underneath him from Got A Motor, Lowanna’s Son, Twist of Thunder and Unique Replica. He’s likely to get shuffled back and there are some in form chasers who should gain too big a break on him and he is likely to leave his run too late.

#3 Shanlyn Percy
He can show lightning early pace in his races but I just don’t think he can run a strong 525m. I believe that 450m sees him out and although he could be in front down the back straight I expect him to tire badly and run wide on the home turn. This should allow the back markers to swamp him late.
