DATSGOOD (7) will need some factors to go her way and a good pinch of luck as well, but there was plenty to like about her return for the 3YO term last week. 1st up since July she was sent forward from gate 8 and after doing plenty of work was fighting to the line when beaten 7m. Stick with her.
MICKEE CULLEN (4) started fav last week in that same race as DATSGOOD off the ace and was also returning from a long break. Looking to lead all the way he was grabbed in the closing stages and beaten a half-head. Fitter for the run he is right in the fight.
NEVERHAVEIEVER (10) secured the pocket trail behind MICKEE CULLEN las week and was able to outsprint him 1st up the passing lane. Gate 10 makes it harder for her, but with the right trail into the contest will be finishing hard.
BIG BEAT (6) is yet to miss a placing in 6 starts since returning from a spell and been runner-up at the past 2. He worked hard in the run last start and 2 back was only a half-head away after hitting the line in good style. The gate hurts.
SELECTIONS: DATSGOOD (7), MICKEE CULLEN (4), NEVERHAVEIEVER (10), BIG BEAT (6)
SUGGESTED BET: DATSGOOD (7) to win
