RIVERLEIGH ROCKET (1) was a good winner 5 starts back when leading throughout off gate 5 and never in danger to record a 9m victory. He has been off the 2nd line in all 4 starts since which does not suit his pattern, yet has still been racing strongly. Back to the front he leads here and looks the winner.
OUR QUINN (6) held the pocket trail 2 starts back at Bathurst from gate 1 and was able to finish within 6m of the winner CHERRY MAHONEY. He found the line strongly at Penrith last start to grab the bronze and has podium claims.
YANKEE STRUTTER (4) found the front in the early stages before releasing the pressure and held on for the silver behind MODERN ERA. That was his best gate for some time and off the front again can scoot out early and can create the space to look for the pocket trail. Some hope here.
