Runner Comments

1. Echo JetReturns from 12 week let-up and ran seventh at Cranbourne when last first-up. Won't be far away in the run. Prefer to watch go around.
2. HumzzFaded to finish three lengths off the winner last start at Warrnambool. Won't be far away in the run and 2kg claim should help. Place.
3. The CommonerBack from let-up and has the speed to overcome a very wide draw. Has won twice at Moonee Valley before. One for wider exotics.
4. The Last NapoleonAmongst the placegetters first two attempts this prep. Likely to get a nice run behind the speed and all wins have come when faced with dry ground. Should fight out the finish.
5. Written ChoiceSettled on speed, boxed on well in straight 4.7L at The Valley. Pestered in lead, no peace throughout, dropped out 9.3L at Pakenham. He has strong form at this track and will appreciate the drop back in grade.
6. Reward With ReturnFinished worse than midfield last start at Kerang but 3kg claim should help. Carrying less weight but not keen.
7. Mount MittyWon once this prep at Dunkeld three runs back and faded to finish 14th last start at Caulfield. Should race on the speed. A good chance.
8. Moi ChouxApplied pressure to the leader but had nothing left at the finish, fifth 2.3L at Pakenham. Driven to the lead but was run down late when second 0.8L at Sale. He has the speed to overcome the wide barrier and will be in it for a long way.
9. Queen AnnabelUnplaced in all five runs this prep. Should get a nice run behind a genuine early tempo and drawn the rails but hard to get enthused.
10. The MobotFinished in the middle of the pack last start at Caulfield and won all previous races as a favourite. 3kg claim should help. Commands serious thought.
11. Chevalier D'eonSlow to begin, looked home 100m, grabbed on post 0.2L at The Valley F&M Bm70 over 1000m. Restrained back, found them to be to slick 6.9L at The Valley F&M Bm78 over 1000m. Should find this easier.
12. Lady SollyFaded to finish fourth last start at Penshurst when fresh but proven second-up runner winning in two of five attempts. Goes down in weight but still seems unlikely.
13. ReardResumes after spell of 22 weeks and generally strong first-up placing at Swan Hill last attempt but appears safely held.
14. Gold SparkComing off a win at Sale and should run fitter for past attempts. Carrying less weight. Serious player.
