DESTINY WARRIOR (2) looked to take them all the way last start over the sprint trip and after setting a solid tempo with even panels in front, couldn’t last when claiming a 3m 2nd. Too far back in his 3 Qld starts prior, he should find a handy position in transit here and can look to open his Qld account.
SPRINGFIELD SPIRIT (8) was a tough winner over this trip 3 starts back when facing the breeze from gate 2 and proving too strong in hanging on for a half-neck margin. Falling 1.5m short last start again when doing the hard work, he will be in for the fight here and can throw down the challenge.
BOB GAGE (1) was a winner here 4 starts back over the 2040m trip when working the front and taking control to score. Beaten by the barriers his past 3 starts, he will be sharper from the ace gate.
WILLSINTOWN (6) has been freshened since his last appearance when finishing best from gate 10 to claim a tidy win. He took them all the way here 3 starts back and 1st up from a freshen here will be in the mix.
SELECTIONS: DESTINY WARRIOR (2), SPRINGFIELD SPIRIT (8), BOB GAGE (1), WILLSINTOWN (6)
