OLIVER WINKLE (5) was wide in the run last start from gate 10 and did well to fight on to claim the bronze behind THE NEXT STAR. His previous runs had been in much stronger company and despite the wide gate he can look to press forward and ask the questions.
FRANKS FORTUNE (1) was a winner here 3 starts back when dropping to the pocket trail from gate 2 and finishing best along the passing lane. He hit the line strongly from gate 5 here 2 starts back and with the benefit of the ace has the options to go very close.
MINI MIRACLE (7) will be sweating on the 1 looking for an all the way performance and if that scenario eventuates, she will be primed and ready for the passing lane. A tidy winner here 3 starts back, forget her last start when striking trouble.
UNASSUMING CHAMP (10) shoots for the hat-trick after successive wins when able to lead them up here over the 1780m on each occasion. He will have to chase here, but is in great touch and can’t be dismissed.
SELECTIONS: OLIVER WINKLE (5), FRANKS FORTUNE (1), MINI MIRACLE (7), UNASSUMING CHAMP (10)
