RUHTREBO (1) returned a winner 1st up for his 3YO term here 3 starts back when spearing out from gate 4 and then taking the trail. He worked hard to find the front at his next start and then his latest run was his 1st at the 2138m trip when wide from gate 7. With the gate advantage and options he can take this.
HERBS HERO (8) will be sweating on the 1 looking to go all the way and if that scenario eventuates he will be ready to take the closing shot. Given 1 start as a 2YO, he was put away and since returning at 3YO has won each of his 3 starts, the latest a tough win at Young. Will be probing for the gaps.
ARK PATROL (4) comes into this fresh after last racing in a Gold Pot heat in March when 7m from the winner. His only run at the 2138m saw him lead from this same gate as a 2YO and with 1 trial where he was carted back in the run was hard to gauge. At his best he is right in this.
GOT THE GOODS (6) has been top 3 at his past 5 starts and scored a lone victory in those. He looked to have his chance to win on Tues from the front but was gunned down by COREY WILLIAM. He can podium again here.
