Runner Comments

1. Casino MondialHas placed in two runs from six this campaign and came on to finish midfield last start at Muswellbrook on a soft track. Likely to race on the speed. Hard to hold out.
2. True MarvelReturns from seven week let-up and gets the blinkers back on. Drawn out wide. Looks tested.
3. AkatinoHaving first start in Australia and fitter for multiple trial runs. Awkwardly drawn. Watch the market.
4. Numbers GameWon once this prep at Mudgee three runs back and first try at this distance. Goes up slightly in weight. Prefer to watch go around.
5. He's a GivenWas able to place at long odds last start at Gosford and four of 11 wins have come from dry ground. Up in trip. At least a place chance here.
6. Writing Unexpected5-1/4 len 8th of 10 (5) $31.00 56.0 Blue Missile 1400m Kembla Grange (Bm68) Good(4) Mar 12. Eased near 1200m. Pulled hard 5-3/4 len 4th of 10 (1) $17.00 57.5 Ladies' Gem 1600m Gosford (Bm64) Soft(7) April 1.
7. Slatey BayEased near 200m 3-3/4 len 5th of 11 (5) $8.50 58.5 Fearless Mila 1600m Coonamble (Bm66) Soft(6) Mar 16. 1/2 hd win of 10 (10) $4.80 59.0 Dream Maiden, Lucky Banner 1750m Muswellbrook (Bm66) Soft(7) Mar 26.
8. Club LegendHas two wins from five attempts this campaign and in the money last start running third at Queanbeyan on a heavy track. No favours from the good track. Not in this.
9. JeronimosAmongst the placegetters first two attempts this prep. Rise in trip and untested at this range. Concern is the wide barrier but still should go well.
10. Lake TaiStruck interference at start. Raced three wide 5-1/4 len, 2-1/4 len 3rd of 11 (9) $7.00 59.0 Port Douglas, Himiko 1600m Canberra 3yo+ (C1) Soft(6) Mar 17. 1-1/4 len 2nd of 10 (5) $4.20 60.5 Would Be King 1700m Wellington (Bm58) Soft(6) Mar 28.
11. Lucky BannerKept chasing and just missed last start at Muswellbrook on a soft track. two from three wins have been in the dry. Goes down in weight. A good chance.
12. Dream MaidenKept chasing and just missed last start at Muswellbrook. Won once this prep at Goulburn three runs back. Draws to do no work. Needs the breaks.
13. Wild SheilaRan three lengths back from the winner last start at Hawkesbury when resuming and faces a rise in distance. Ran fifth at Newcastle when last second-up. Should be right in the finish.
14. WhelkWon once this prep at Newcastle four runs back and ran four lengths back from the winner last start at the track on a soft track. Winner at the track before but unlikely.
15. Holy EmpressCame on to finish midfield last start at Hawkesbury and won once this prep at Scone three runs back. Rates highly with Billy Cray back on board. Place only.
16. De ValeraFinished fifth last start at Gosford on a soft track and gets the blinkers back on. Carrying less weight but appears tested.
17. Private DetectiveWon once this prep at Goulburn five runs back and down in distance. Drawn out wide. Not in this.
18. Lime And SugarProtest lodged, dismissed 1-3/4 len 4th of 6 (6) $3.90 57.0 The Dark Knight 1500m Muswellbrook Plate (C1) Soft(5) Feb 27. Keen. Lost a plate 7 len 7th of 11 (3) $151.00 52.0 Ladylovestogamble 1850m Newcastle (Bm64) Soft(5) Mar 30.
