MUSCULUS (2) makes his Aus debut without a trial and arrives with solid NZ form. Only narrowly beaten at Addington 2 starts back over the 2600m stand, his last start was in the Jewels when down the line behind the smart HABIBI INTA. If he handles the triangle he should be far too smart.
REDRIVERDEBBA (5) is also making her 1st appearance in Qld and will be 1st up since the Vicbred 4YO mares final where she found the line in good order behind KINVARA SUE. Coming into this without a trial, she may just need the run, yet can’t be ignored.
DAY TOURER (3) has good early speed from the mobile and can look to find early position from the gate. He worked home well off 40m last start and won’t be far away here.
NORTHERN MUSCLE (6) made a mess of the start from the tapes last time out and didn’t want to participate. His previous run was a solid effort when 2nd to GHENT and with a win and a 2nd from 3 appearances at the triangle, can chime in here.
SELECTIONS: MUSCULUS (2), REDRIVERDEBBA (5), DAY TOURER (3), NORTHERN MUSCLE (6)
