FORTES IN FIDES (7) will be needing some factors in his favour but following out a good beginner, if he can snare the pocket trail he will be coiled and ready to strike. His run 2 starts back was full of merit when wide for a long way and was wide again last start. With a cheap run he can arrive.
HERES MY NUMBER (4) was taken back early from gate 6 here last start and was trying to work home in the closing stages over the 2040m. His past 3 gates have been 7, 8 and 6 and with a slight improvement and off the front line he can look to issue a challenge.
OSCARS GLORY (1) should take some benefit from his latest start when 1st up from a freshen and looking to work home from the 2nd line. With the options from the gate he will be in the mix.
MICKEE CULLEN (5) could only manage to get within 7m of the winner here last start after slotting back from this same gate. A narrow winner 2 starts back he will be working home in the latter stages.
