CAESARS ASTRUM (2) might have some plain numbers next to her name, but the effort has been there and things haven’t really gone to plan. Forced to cut the breeze from gate 4 over the AP 2138m last start, she faded late behind MUCH BETTOR. Lighting the lamps, she can give this a shake.
MONTANA CHIEF (7) should find this a shade or 2 below his recent assignments, the latest when trying to chase the power running ZAHVEN BANNER. Luckless on the pegs when searching for space that didn’t arrive, he is 2 from 3 at this venue and with the right early trail can loom ominously.
SPEECHCRAFT (4) was a Redcliffe winner 3 starts back, followed that with a silver here and then on Thurs was gunned down after leading in a re-run at Redcliffe after the 1st attempt of the race was abandoned after 700m. He won’t be far away.
TEARAWAY DIAMOND (8) backs up from Friday at AP where he had a tough gate to overcome. Wide and working here 2 starts back, with a cart into the contest he can make a play for the exotics.
SELECTIONS: CAESARS ASTRUM (2), MONTANA CHIEF (7), SPEECHCRAFT (4), TEARAWAY DIAMOND (8)
SUGGESTED BET: Exotics 2-4-7-8
