SPEED MAP

SAKURA GIRL likely pushes her way to the top from the wide gate. Expect some local hopes wanting to be forward, including ORIGINAL GLAZE and DIVINE PURPOSE. RENAISSANCE WOMAN maps best of those at the top of the market. Expect NOAH N A DEEL to settle closer.

RUNNER-BY-RUNNER ANALYSIS

2. Affaire A Suivre – Australasian Oaks winner putting up a big figure in winning. Respect the fresh form line.
3. Renaissance Woman – Outsprinted to the line last time. Up in trip suits. Leading chance.
4. So Dazzling – Will need to bounce back from last time. Happy to work around her.
5. Tyresa – More suited to a Toowoomba Class 2 at this stage.
6. Noah ‘n’ A Deel – Held up early in straight and found line well last start. Live chance.
7. Sakura Girl – Gate makes it harder, but she’s likely rolling to the top and going good enough to win.
8. Super Chilled – Gate makes it difficult, but respecting Trainer / Jock
9. Madame Odette – A rung below the better hopes.
12. Proscenium Arch – Big effort last time, but could she at the end of her prep? Top 4 chance if repeats.
13. Original Glaze – Missing a zero on the price.
14. Cheval D’Or – Gate makes its harder, and while I respect the Kiwis she is hard to have.
15. Reo – Unlikely
16. Yankee Hussel – Worked to line nicely last time. Top 4 chance.
17. Amokura – Dominant in weaker grade. Top 5 chance here.

SHANE CIURLEO’S TOP 4 SELECTIONS

3. Renaissance Woman
6. Noah ‘n’ A Deel
2. Affaire A Suivre
16. Yankee Hussel

RENAISSANCE WOMAN is the horse to beat. Up in trip and a good map makes her the logical choice. NOAH ‘N’ A DEEL clearly the best roughie for mine. She brings the Kovalica form out of last prep. Both runs in this preparation since the trial have been good enough to peak here for the prep. Warmed up late last start. Can be more prominent in the run here. All ticks to spec at the price.

BACK – #6 Noah ‘n’ A Deel (EACH-WAY) for 1 unit WIN and 2 units PLACE
