KAANAPALI (1) started from gate 3 here 5 starts back over the mile and didn’t get the cleanest shot when 10m from the winner ONE TO TANGO. In the 4 runs since he has started from the 2nd line, the latest when hitting the line in good order. From the ace gate he gets every chance to dictate.
MAJOR TRALEE (7) flashed home from back in the pack to score a good win here 5 starts back and in the 4 runs since found the line nicely behind GLENFERRIE DUSTER 3 starts back. With the perfect cosy trip he will be looking for the gaps late and looks a good quinella play.
OMINOUS FLYER (2) has now had 4 starts back after close to 12 months off the scene and should be nearing a fitness peak. Luckless when looking for space last start at Marburg that followed a 3m 2nd when pressing ahead over the 1780m trip. He is right in this.
VILLAGE CRUISER (3) looked to have found his race last start at Marburg but when stranded 3-wide could only get within 8m of the winner. He looks likely to work again here and has place hopes.
SELECTIONS: KAANAPALI (1), MAJOR TRALEE (7), OMINOUS FLYER (2), VILLAGE CRUISER (3)
