CLAUDYS PRINCE (1) has been runner-up in both starts since arriving in Qld behind MAJESTIC SIMON on both occasions where luck has not been in his side. 1st up over the mobile mile he was shuffled away and then last week was again shuffled under these conditions. Charging home when the gap arrived to get within an eyelash of victory, he can go one better this time.
GODOFTHUNDER (2) was safely into stride last start to take control before releasing MAJESTIC SIMON. Trying to make a closing challenge, he finished with the bronze when 1.5m in arrears. Beaten a head here 3 starts back, he can be at the pointy end again to throw down a challenge.
IL PIRATA (6) was locked away against the pegs last start from the 10m tape and was making some handy late metres to be midfield and under 10m from the winner. Working towards a win, he can feature in this.
WEE MAN TROUBLE (11) worked around them in the early stages here last week when resuming from a spell and after working hard in the run faded over the latter stages. Fitter for the run, he has podium claims.
