CARNERA (1) will take some benefit from his first Qld outing where he was forced to negotiate a 50m handicap. Eating into the deficit over the closing stages when 9m from the in-form BOURBONONTHEROCKS, he lands the options top open his Qld account in this.
TAM OSHANTER (3) made an error last start that ended his chances when sent to the post as favourite. Beaten when starting in red figures the start prior when unable to reel in IM THE COMMANDO, the mobile conditions suit and give him the chance to bounce back.
MATATOKI (7) has the wide gate but will appreciate starting off the same line as his opponents. With a tidy record from behind the start car, he can be thereabouts again.
AVEROSS DON (4) is yet to land a win under mobile conditions from 10 attempts. His recent form from the tapes has been solid and includes a last stride defeat here last week.
SELECTIONS: CARNERA (1), TAM OSHANTER (3), MATATOKI (7), AVEROSS DON (4)
SUGGESTED BET: CARNERA (1) to win
