NOVENA ROSE (9) was in the pocket trail last start at Redcliffe but couldn’t quite get the leader and winner NERIO who set a strong tempo. Carted back to the tail the start prior, she can look to get a nice cart through and this is the right type of race for her to land the prize.
SNAKES N LADDERS (4) settled well back in the pack last start and was hitting the line in good style to be 7m from the winner. He only has the lone career victory but with the right position in the run he can throw down a closing challenge.
DIABOLO STAR (8) will need some luck to sight the gaps but with the gaps opening he can enjoy the cosy ride. Forget his last start when doing some work, the soft trip here suits.
THE FLOYD (7) has the wide gate but is on a huge class drop from what he has been meeting. His run was fair last start over the 2138m and a strong showing in this would be no surprise.
SELECTIONS: NOVENA ROSE (9), SNAKES N LADDERS (4), DIABOLO STAR (8), THE FLOYD (7)
