Decent speed here with Alligator Blood up front, Lindermann on his back and Tuvalu sitting outside.

Vow And Declare, Smokin Romans & Right You Are will push forward also.

Bank Maur, Attrition & Mounga forward of midfield.

Nonconformist, Duais, Duke De Sessa & Without A Fight back of midfield.

Alenquer, Soulcombe, Lunar Flare & Alaskan God out the back.


2. Alligator Blood – 5-time G1 winner. Won two trials in prep for the G1 Memsie and was only 0.9L from the winner first up, before a good 2nd in the Makybe Diva to Mr Brightside. Is the one to beat.

4. Nonconformist – Won the Blamey first up last prep. Was outpaced in the Memsie but late sectionals were good and he’ll be hitting the line hard late.

5. Tuvalu – Won the Toorak and 2nd in the Cantala last prep. Has been solid in two runs this prep and maps handy.

8. Without A Fight – Was impressive in his two Queensland wins. First up here and will get back.

9. Right You Are – Consistent galloper from the right yard who maps well, keeps improving and beat some handy horses last prep. Could be the spoiler.

10. Soulcombe – Was impressive winning the Heatherlie first up. Gets too far back here?

11. Duke De Sessa – Impressive entire who ran a slashing race first up in the Doncaster Handicap first up last prep. Was solid first up in the Memsie and will appreciate the step up to 1800m here.

13. Lindermann – Pulled up coughing first up in the Winx then 4th in the Chemlsford beaten 1.4L. Think It Over ran 3rd there then won the $1m 7 Stakes last week. Rosehill Guineas win last prep puts him in the frame here. Bowman flying to ride a big pointer.

14. Attrition – Has to slot in from the wide gate, but was a strong and close 2nd in the Australian Guineas last prep, and again in the John Feehan last start.

15. Duais – Was a slashing first up run in the Winx Stakes then a bit plainer second up. Watch here.


#13 Lindermann
#2 Alligator Blood
#9 Right You Are
#5 Tuvalu
#11 Duke De Sessa


Lindermann & Alligator Blood should dictate terms, and both will be hard to run down.
Right You Are and Tuvalu will be close on speed and have the ability to give this a shake.
Duke De Sessa the big improver if the race suits a swooper.
