#5 Unlawful Entry

He was a strong lay bet in the heat of the Australian Cup last week but I believe he is getting back to his best. He is really showing a liking for outside draws and just wants to go around dogs rather than underneath them, so the closer he is to the outside the better so I am happy to play from Box 5 (has had Box 1 and 2 in most recent starts). He really meets a field to his liking here in dropping back to Grade 5 class and he should storm home over the top of these rivals.

Race 8 Paint The Town Red 14/3 Stakes

#1 Magic Spring

Even though this chaser won the Group 1 National Derby final over this trip in January I have never been convinced he is comfortable racing off inside draws. He usually wants to spear off on the first turn so he would need to be clearly ahead early to avoid any trouble from dogs on his outside. He has finished down the track in his two starts since the Derby and whilst he is still in Free For All class I am happy to take him on.
