The locally-trained WASHINGTON TOWERS (best odds $2.70 with bet365) hit the ground running first-up and looks well placed here for back-to-back victories today. Last start, the Whittington gelding was fresh off a 17-week spell when he led from barrier to box in a BM70, here over 1000m. He ran the trip out, half a length slower than benchmark, the best in this field by more than 4 lengths. They have put the grandstand on his back today but after the claim of 4kgs, he carries just half a kilo more than his last-start victory. He gets the gun-run from gate two today and maps to lead them into the first turn. Already a winner when second-up and a two-time winner at the track and distance, he should prove hard to run down again.


Local galloper PROPOSE A TOAST (best odds $7.50 with bet365) is third-up today and unbeaten in three starts over the distance, looks on target to keep that record intact. Last start, the Excelebration gelding was second-up off a six-month break when he fought hard to get the cash in a BM65, here over 1300m. Hanging on to get the nod, he ran the trip, 5.3 lengths slower than benchmark, the second-best here behind Milamoo who is also third-up here and rates some chance today. Already a track and distance winner, the four-year-old will strip even fitter today and is partnered by Kayla Nisbet for her fourth time on the gelding. Currently at great odds, he looks a worthwhile investment in this contest.


Locally-trained by Gratz Vella, BEAU ROCK (best odds $12 with Palmerbet) is in great touch this time in and looks super each-way value in this contest. Last start, the Magnus gelding came off a good win here in Class 1 company when he faced a rise in grade and had no luck at all when finishing mid-field in a Class 2 over 1200m. Never on the track, he was trapped three-wide without cover and had nothing left in the run home. He draws wide today but has enough early gate speed to overcome that as he maps to settle better than mid-field. With Jack Martin aboard today, if he finds clean air on straightening, he should be running on and has claims to figure in the finish. Already a two-time winner at the track, he is well worth an each-way ticket today.
