VINTAGE DREAM (1) will strip fitter following her return from a break where she started from gate 4 over the sprint trip and snagged back early was wide off the track when trying to make a charge. She had run in to some very progressive types last campaign and from the gate has the option to take this.
RUHTREBO (9) finished best to claim victory here 2 starts back when digging in to claim a head victory. Making a charge at the 550m last start he loomed quickly but it was a short-lived sprint and he was only plugging away up the stretch. Despite the 2nd line he can be sharper here.
PURPLE SHADES (7) has been in the money at 5 of his past 6 starts including 2 victories. A Tamworth winner last start after settling in the trail, he will be probing for gaps in the closing stages.
VELOCE BELLA (3) has placed at her past 4 in succession and last start was working hard in the breeze when fighting hard to hold the bronze. From the gate she will be in the fight again.
SELECTIONS: VINTAGE DREAM (1), RUHTREBO (9), PURPLE SHADES (7), VELOCE BELLA (3)
