LONG DIRT ROAD (1) looked to take them all the way at AP 3 starts back and after leading deep into the stretch was grabbed on the line to go under a head. He followed that with a tough run in the breeze and last start was luckless on the pegs behind a tiring leader. He will be gripping on.
SOPHIES PRIDE (7) was 1st up in 6 weeks last start and after starting off the 2nd line came with a well-timed run to power over the top to a 5m victory. With the perfect trail on offer behind the leader here, she will be coiled and ready for the final shot.
