CIRCLE LINE (1) was a winner 5 starts back over the mile when leading all the way and ripping home a strong closing 800m split. He has met some handy ones in the 4 starts since that win including a good effort when looking to lead all the way over this trip and finishing 8m from STATEMENT MADE.
SUBTLE DELIGHT (7) gets no favours from the gate again and will need a slice of luck, however the smaller field size will work in his favour. Unable to find position last week he was snagged back and was working home wide out. With better luck he can feature.
MONIVAE (2) didn’t have any early speed at Redcliffe 2 starts back over the 2040m trip and once he was eventually sent forward to the front he couldn’t hold on and was grabbed up the passing lane. From the gate he can look to find early position and has podium hopes.
JACKS AT THE BEACH (3) does his best at the mile, however has been able to place at 2 of his past 5 starts and they were both over this trip. His run 5 starts back when working in the run had merit when 2nd to KARLOO MAC and if he applies the acid here, he will let the know he is in the race.
SELECTIONS: CIRCLE LINE (1), SUBTLE DELIGHT (7), MONIVAE (2), JACKS AT THE BEACH (3)
