NEWMERELLA SHARKIE (2) lands his best gate for some time and comes into this as the runner-up at his past 3 in succession. He found the line nicely last start behind the smart ARGYLE BEACH to make it successive runs she has beaten him. This looks a perfect race for him and he gets every chance.
VANTO HANOVER (8) went back from gate 6 at Redcliffe last start and was working home strongly to arrive in time for a tidy win over the 2040m trip. Given a freshen since that win, she will need a slice of luck from this gate but will be charging home when the gaps arrive.
LEO THE LION (1) stepped away well from the tapes at Marburg 3 starts back and once in front was able to control the tempo to score. Too far back on the grass at Kilcoy last start he should get a great run in transit.
THE DREAM MAKER (5) arrived from NZ with some handy numbers and went straight into a Rising Stars heat where she made an error. Trialling twice in good order since that, if she brings her NZ form she is a threat.
SELECTIONS: NEWMERELLA SHARKIE (2), VANTO HANOVER (8), LEO THE LION (1), THE DREAM MAKER (5)
