SOME EXCUSESOMEWHERE (1) makes his 1st appearance in Aust for Chantal Turpin after arriving a 4-time winner from NZ. A winner from the stand-start 2 back, his latest performance was a handy effort over the 2300m. He looked good in a recent trial and from the gate gets every chance for a 1st up win.
GRINVIL (9) made the most of gate 1 over the mile last start and after not forced to work too hard to hold the front was able to take them all the way. A tidy winner 3 starts back when working home over the top from the 2nd line, she will be swooping hard in this.
OUR CHITTYBANGBANG (2) was wide off the track here 3 starts back and finished over the top to score a truly scrumptious victory. He ran home some slick panels last start behind ROCK WITH SAM and can challenge here.
VETTEL (3) pressed forward to find the front from gate 3 here last start and once in control held on to score a narrow victory. With the right run he can be right in the fight again here.
