Runner Comments

1. Count De RupeeComing to a new trainer and placed at last trial at this track. Proven perfromer on a soft track. Place only.
2. HilalFirst-up after 20 week spell and looks ready to go following convincing trial win at Rosehill Gardens. Resumes well. Genuine contender.
3. Forbidden LoveFirst-up after 16 week break. Placed at Rosehill Gardens when last fresh and won two of four first-up. Prepped well winning last trial at the same track. Must respect.
4. NimaleeBack after 17 week break and winner of two when first-up including ran second at Newcastle last go. Fitter for multiple trial runs. Not in this.
5. Gem SongWon once this prep at Newcastle five runs back and has not won at Randwick previously. Rates highly with Nash Rawiller aboard. Place only.
6. Special RewardResumes after a 22 week spell and proven first-up runner winning in two of eight attempts. Has a win from two trials. Can surprise.
7. EmbracerFirst-up after 25 week spell and undefefeated in three lead-up trials. Won five of nine as a favourite. Not out of it.
8. Hard EmpireFinished worse than midfield last start at Grafton when fresh and blinkers come off. Ran sixth at Doomben when last second-up. Not in this.
9. Prime CandidateShort back-up of seven days. Has shown early speed in races to date and has two placings from six runs this prep. Serious player.
10. Belluci BabeResumes after spell of 17 weeks and looks ready to go on recent trial performances. Proven first-up winning two from four when fresh and won at Gosford last go. Beautifully placed.
11. WandabaaLet-up and won once this prep at Newcastle seven runs back. Has trialed in 42 days since last run. Not out of it.
12. Enchanted HeartOn a seven day back-up. Kept chasing and just missed last start at Rosehill Gardens but has not won at Randwick previously. Not keen.
