THE SHADY ONE (3) was able to grab the bronze last start in a solid effort. Missing away from the tapes, he was forced to chase and then with the right cart into the contest was hitting the line strongly in a sharp closing panel to be 5m from the winner. That followed successive victories and the move to the front line is a big plus here.
ALLELUIA (8) was 2nd in this race last year from the 20m tape and he will look to go one-better in 2019 from the same mark. Sent to the breeze from a 30m impost last week, he was in for the fight and fought gamely when 4m from the winner. His stand record is excellent and he is huge danger.
WATCH PULP FICTION (10) hasnt been seen behind the tapes since this race last year, however his recent form is strong including a last start victory. Hustling early to protect the pegs he packed too many guns in front, zipping home in 27.3 to claim the prize. Just needs to weave a passage.
MO CASINO (5) pinged the tapes here last week and once in control from the front had them chasing all the way, zipping home in 27.4 to score. This is a big step up from that win, however bringing those manners will go a long way here.
