GREG THE GREAT (9) was a solid winner here last time out off the tapes. Although he draws the second row his record from the mobile is creditable. He has been in great from of late and should be hard to beat.
BOURBONONTHEROCKS (2) has been racing well of late winning 2 of her last 5 starts. She is yet to win from the mobile but has placed 3 from 4 attempts. The draw helps her and she is a definite chance
ASTRAL RULER (10) has been around the money of late. He is a winner of 3 races from 10 attempts at mobile conditions. He is in the mix despite the second row draw.
GEE UP NEDDY (7) is going well enough to figure here with luck from the tough draw.

In an open contest with many winning chances WHATA STRIDE (4) gets the nod. She has placed her last 2 starts and her last run was full of merit when narrowly defeated here. She is in the mix again.
IFYOUBELIEVE (5) was a winner 2 starts back at Marburg, then had to go back from a wide draw last start here at Albion Park. That run was better than it looks on paper. This race looks suitable, he can figure.
IDIOTS DREAM (1) has been racing well. He was only 2.5 metres off them last time out here at Albion Park. He is an improving type that puts in each time he steps out onto the track. A win isn’t far way.
DOWNTOWN LUCCA (8) finished 2nd here last start. From the good draw he will be thereabouts.
SELECTIONS: WHATS STRIDE (4), IFYUOBELIEVE (5), IDIOTS DREAM (1), DOWNTOWN LUCCA (8)

TIMELESS APPEAL (5) returns from a break here. Last campaign she contested both the Redcliffe Oaks and the South East Oaks. This looks a winnable race first up.

TIGES APPRENTICE (4) was narrowly defeated by COULDNTELLYA here last time out when attempting to lead all of the way. He can push forward from the draw and is a genuine chance.
KAY NORA SHANNON (8) broke through for her maiden win last time out. She should receive an economical run in transit and figure in the placings.

THANKHEAVNFORGIRLS (2) has been racing well. She was a winner here 3 starts back and has been close to the money her last 2 runs. She is in the mix.
VICTREE MIKAYLA (6) has the wide draw to overcome but should find this easier than her last start assignment in a Mares Qualifier. She was a winner here 2 starts ago. She can be thereabouts.
MIKE ORR (1) has been disappointing since winning here 3 starts ago. He might be worth another chance from the draw.
SELECTIONS: SPECIAL RESERVE (8), THANKHEAVNFORGIRLS (2), VICTREE MIKAYLA (6), MIKE ORR (1)
