Many have said after the draw that EF TROOP and SUNLIGHT will burn across to lead. That may well be the case but gee whiz there are some horses drawn underneath that are going to want to drive forward to hold their spots so they may well go extremely quick early here. The two horses mentioned above are high quality, but from the gates they are going to have to be if they burn early and try to hold them off.

To be honest I wasn’t a big JONKER man to begin with but sitting in behind the speed at Wyong was a great option to teach the horse to settle and I love the way he let down. Even better now he has drawn a good gate and should jump from gate 2. Bullock has ridden the horse a treat and you feel sorry for him but Bowman from gate 2 coming off weekend winner at his return to Sydney racing will be full of confidence and with that hot speed he should be able to sit just off that speed and get last shot at them. Still run around a little in the straight last time but that just shows he still has some improvement to come.

On the other side is SUNLIGHT who is rock hard fit and the ultimate professional! Does nothing wrong, settles and let’s rip with strong late sectionals. Simply fool proof and sure to be there and look the winner at some stage. With a good ride she’s the one to beat.

EF TROOP is a speed machine. He went hard on debut and just hung on that day, next start he got it a bit easier and just put them to the sword and gave them a belting. His race depends on the first 400m and the problem for him is the fact the other know how good he is and they are not going to afford him any favours! He will be in front and be the one they all have to catch.

NOMOTHAJ has been out of sight out of mind but gets a good gate, comes off two trials and I for one love it when these horses come into a race like this fresh.

MERYL returned with a good win and from gate 5 can sit in behind the speed and get every chance.

I had something small on OUTBACK BARBIE at $61 before the draw but after getting gate 6 she is in to about $26. Professional girl who can find a nice spot and get every chance. Might not have the absolute class as a few of these but gets her chance and can run in the money somewhere.

*Good race, not brimming with confidence but have JONKER slightly on top after the draw.
