BANGKOK BRAVADO (9) was a long way back in the run last start from gate 11 and after stalling 3-wide when trailing into the contest was hitting the line in good order. He was beaten by the leader controlling the speed 2 back and although the 2138m poses a query, he can get the job done.
THE HARLEM HAMMER (3) was a real eye-catcher last start when attacking the line strongly in the closing stages. That followed a 2nd to MARETTI in a Rising Stars final after a strong win in the heats. She is right in contention here.
SELECTIONS: BANGKOK BRAVADO (9), THE HARLEM HAMMER (3), JACKS AT THE BEACH (7), MISTA NATURAL (1)
