All the power looks drawn out the back in this open contest where WATTS UP SUNSHINE (10) can look to add another AP victory to his card after a somewhat mixed Winter campaign. Eased to the poles last start to be 6m from THE HONEY QUEEN, he found the line in nice style the start prior behind BEYOND DELIGHT. With the right tempo, he can descend on them.
ROCKIN WITH ELVIS (11) has been runner-up in both appearances here at The Creek, the latest when firing off the arm to set the tempo from gate 6 in the JC McMullen where he was able to hold 2nd behind the mighty impressive BETTOR ISOLATE. Despite the tough gate, he can shake, rattle and roll.
THE RACONTUER (3) held the front here last week in stronger company and given the stink eye through the opening 1200m, was forced into releasing, and then faded in the latter stages. Limiting the early burn will be key to his chances.
OBI ONE (4) was not suited here last week at the 2138m when doing some work in the run, fading as a result. Gate 7 was his undoing the start prior chasing BEYOND DELIGHT and with the right luck here, he can be closer.
