SPEED MAP

Just Fine should set a solid tempo and should try to cross and lead Alligator Blood here.

Deny Knowledge and Lindermann will be on speed also.

Alenquer, Vow And Declare and Duais midfield.

Hezashocka, Nonconformist & Forgot You out the back.

FINAL FIELD – KEY RUNNERS

1. Alligator Blood – Was strong winning the Underwood last start. Won it last year also then 5th beaten 2.3L in this race. A strong 2000m is the query.

3. Nonconformist – Ran 2nd beaten a nose in this race 2 years ago. 7th beaten 2.5L in the Underwood last start. Can improve here.

6. Just Fine – 3 from 3 in Australia, winning the G1 Metrop last start. Up to WFA here but absorbs plenty of pressure early and can step up.

8. Lindermann – Has been disappointing this prep but Joao Moreira on board and certainly has the ability to win this.

9. Duais – Has hit the line impressively this prep and close 3rd in the Underwood last start was the run of a mare close to her peak.

SUMMARY

Going to bet around the favourites here. Alligator Blood a question mark in a strongly run 2000m, and Just Fine jumping to WFA level for the first time here.

Duais is absolutely flying and looks ready for a peak run here.

Lindermann and Nonconformist can surprise at big odds.
