Always a good race and usually pretty hard to work out. Personally I like to try and find the horse who is improving out of sight each run leading into these 2yr old races. They usually win, if not it’s simply the ready made 2yr old type like HANSEATIC.

Good speed as expected but don’t think it will be over the top. HANSEATIC is the obvious horse and he may well blow them away. His form has been outstanding leading into this. Gate 1 can be the big issue if they want to ride tight in the straight. Often in races like this they will all roll off to find fresh air so his race rely’s on that happening.

RULERSHIP is well above average. The win two back was arrogant. Last start looked as though he was home for all money before Hanseatic run over him late. In the right stable and they will have him cherry ripe for this.

Feel the value and an improving type is PERSONAL. Hayes trains, Williams rides. She was ok on debut but jumped out of the ground at 2nd career start with winkers on. Has since trialled in blinkers and they looked to have worked a treat off the good trial win. She should be able to land in the first 5-6 and at $17 goes in exotics for me.

LETZBEGLAM couldn’t have done any more than what she’s done so far. Wide on a fast speed and ran away from them last start. gets the right run and no reason she can’t win.

*Many other chances, that’s just how I see it*

Value: 13-PERSONAL $17/$5
