PARATROUPER (1) made the most of this gate last start when pouncing on the poles over the 2040m and once in control was never headed in scoring victory by 4m. Only 3m in arrears 3 starts back after a tough trip, he has the gate to dictate.
BOLTA (6) ran another tough race last start when sent forward with a lap to travel to lead the three-wide train. Up for the challenge, he was game to the wire to hold 2nd when within 1.5m of the winner. Sitting parked over the AP 2138m 2 starts back, he will be throwing It down again here.
BLISSFULDAY (8) is a six-time winner here at the Peninsula with his latest outing when a well-beaten favourite. Grabbing the bronze 2 starts back at Albion Park, this is not out of reach.
HAMMERTIME HARLEY (7) looked to capitalise on gate 2 last start and led them into the stretch but could not fight off the challengers when 3rd. With the likelihood of the stalking trip, she can strike.
SELECTIONS: PARATROUPER (1), BOLTA (6), BLISSFULDAY (8), HAMMERTIME HARLEY (7)
SUGGESTED BET: PARATROUPER (1) to win
