Runner Comments

1. HomesmanWon the Group I Australian Cup earlier in the year and close up both runs this preparation including a two-length fourth in the Might And Power last start. Should be able to cross and settle first couple from the gate and is expected to be in the finish.
2. IncentiviseA stayer on the verge of greatness winning last eight including the Makybe Diva and Turnbull Stakes last two at Group I level and only 2400m run won the Group III Tattersall's Cup at Eagle Farm by 12-lengths. The barrier looks ugly but not a lot of genuine speed inside him and should cross comfortably. The one to beat.
3. Explosive JackWon three Derbies earlier in the year including the Australian Derby at Randwick over 2400m. Has now had two runs back from a spell and ready to improve sharply stepping up in distance.
4. The Chosen One15 starts at Group I level without winning but has been placed on four occasions at the elite level including this race last year. Has been placed two from three this preparation including a runner up finish in the Herbert Power this track and distance last start and has place prospects again.
5. Ocean BillyNew Zealand stayer having his first run for Chris Waller. Won the Waikato Cup this trip in 2020 and is a Group I winner of the Auckland Cup. Hit the line strongly over 1600m at Te Rapa last start and ready to peak stepping up in distance. Knockout hope.
6. SelinoWon the Group I Sydney Cup in the autumn and has improved all three runs this preparation culminating in a two-length fourth in the Bart Cummings at Flemington last start. Likely to see the best of him on the first Tuesday in November and the gate no help but still can work home into the placings.
7. PersanFinished fifth in the 2020 Melbourne Cup. Was placed at Flemington resuming but well beaten in the Turnbull last start. The Melbourne Cup looks his target but no surprise to see him figure in the placings.
8. Quick ThinkerHeld up several times nk 2nd of 14 (9) $20.00 59.0 Great House 2300m Newcastle G3 Newcastle Cup Soft(5) Sept 17. 10-1/2 len 14th of 17 (14) $31.00 57.0 Montefilia 2400m Randwick G1 The Metrop Good(4) Oct 2.
9. ChapadaYet to win in 10 starts at Group I level and was well beaten this race last year. Was placed in the Turnbull Stakes last start and place prospects look best again.
10. DelphiHas won five from nine and is unbeaten in two starts at 2400m after a strong win in the Herbert Power this track and distance last start and drops 4.5kg at the weights. Has some upside but the barrier no help at all.
11. Master Of WineHasn't been able to place in nine Group I starts and well beaten this race last year. Showed a return to form when placed in the Bart Cummings last start but still needs to find something to be a genuine winning chance.
12. MontefiliaTicked the 2400m box collecting her third Group I with a victory in the Metropolitan at Randwick last start. Looks well in at the weights with 52kg and rates a winning chance.
13. Port GuillaumeImport which hasn't fired a shot in three Australian starts. The blinkers go on for the first time but would need to improve considerably to be a genuine winning chance.
14. She's IdeelFinished second in the Tancred Stakes this trip in the Autumn and a beaten favourite when fourth in the Sydney Cup. Won the Kingston Town Stakes two back before working home okay in the Metropolitan. The blinkers go back on and no surprise to see her in the finish down in the weights launching from a good gate.
15. Young WertherWas placed in the Victoria Derby and Australian Derby as a three-year-old and has been good both runs this preparation including a half-length second in the Turnbull last start. Still scope for improvement third up stepping up in distance and a genuine winning chance.
16. NonconformistWon the Naturalism two back before going down narrowly in the Might And Power last week. Has to be one of the main chances dropping 7.5kg under the handicap conditions.
17. DuaisQueensland Oaks winner and Australian Oaks runner up as a three-year-old and burst into calculations winning the Coongy Handicap on Wednesday. Just has to back up to be a leading contender with 51kg on her back and jumping from an ideal gate.
18. Charms StarFinished runner up in the NZ Oaks before crossing the Tasman to join the Waller stable and chased home Duais in the Queensland Oaks during the winter. Never saw clear running in the Metropolitan last start and looked to have something to offer. Winning chance down in the weights although the drier the track the better.
19. Great HouseWon the Newcastle Cup two back and was beaten far in the Metropolitan last start. Has place prospects if he gains a start.
20. ConstantinopleWide during race 4-1/2 len 6th of 9 (7) $21.00 57.5 Wicklow Town 1600m Ballarat Gold Nugget Good(3) Sept 19. Keen 5-1/4 len 8th of 9 (3) $31.00 54.0 Duais 2000m Caulfield G3 Coongy Cup Good(4) Oct 13.
