Runner Comments

1. AcademyComing off a win at Rosehill and in strong form with two wins from six attempts this campaign. Up 5kg from last run but should go well.
2. AnimateBack 3L box, hard ridden turn, swamped 100m 5.6L at Royal Randwick Prov Champ over 1400m Heavy 8. Behind midfield, wide, battled late, OK finish 4.8L at Rosehill Gardens Bm88 over 1200m. Won when second-up previously, respect.
3. OccupyFaded to finish nine lengths off the winner last start at Doomben when first up and blinkers come off for the first time. Won at Scone in only second-up attempt but still unlikely.
4. The Fire TrapFinished three lengths back last start at Randwick and blinkers come off. Won once this prep at Warwick Farm three runs back. Appears tested.
5. Spanish PointResumes from a long 48 week spell and coming to a new trainer. Placed in both trials but this looks too strong.
6. LisdoonvarnaFaded to finish ninth last start at Randwick when resuming and has not won in six outings to the track before. Ran ninth at the track when last second-up. Hard to get enthused.
7. Mirra VisionMidfield on rail, fought on bravely for 4th 3.4L Hawk Gneas Group 3 over 1400m. Worse than midfield, boxed on nicely in straight 1.1L at Royal Randwick Bm78 over 1200m. Warrants respect with second-up stats.
8. Moana JewelFirst-up after 21 week break and has shown potential in trials. Resumes well. Not the worst.
9. CriaderasStrong finishing effort to win last start at Randwick when first up and unbeaten in all three runs. Capable of finishing very strongly. Leading hope.
10. IcebathNarrowly beaten when heavily backed last start at Randwick and without a win in five runs at the track. Placed in first start this prep. Not out of it.
11. In Lighten MeCan't knock the form with two wins from four attempts this campaign but ran ninth last start at Wyong. Goes up slightly in weight. Looking to others.
12. StarlaCan't knock the form with two wins from nine attempts this campaign but has disappointed in all six starts as a favourite. All wins have come when faced with dry ground. Chance.
13. Got UndersFinished worse than midfield last start at Canterbury but has two placings from eight runs this prep. Will have a soft run from inside gate but still prefer to watch go around.
14. PetroniusIn the money last start running third at Randwick on a soft track when first up and generally strong second-up. Down in weight. Needs the breaks.
15. WillowheartLed all the way to win last start at Warwick Farm and has the speed to overcome a very wide draw. James McDonald has had success aboard previously. Hard to go past.
16. Air To AirLast small field, eye catcher late, follow similar 1.5L at Rosehill Gardens Ing Gneas Restricted Listed over 1400m Soft 5. Raced back, great outside sprint, nearly got there 0.1L at Royal Randwick 3&4Y Bm72 over 1300m Soft 5. Second-up.
17. ArchannaRaced back, strong outside sprint, challenged late 0.2L at Kensington F&M Bm72 over 1250m. Settled last, held up 400m, sound finish, unlucky 1.8L at Royal Randwick 3&4Y Bm72 over 1300m Soft 5.
