Team Snowden saddle-up THOUSAND YEARS here (best odds currently $2.50 with bet365) and they will be hoping it’s a case of third time lucky for the three-year-old today. Last start, the Dundeel filly finished runner-up for the second consecutive time this preparation on a Heavy 10 at Kembla Grange in Class 1 company. She settled just off the pace and chased the winner all the way home in the 1500m event. She ran a new personal best that day, covering the trip, 5.7 lengths slower than benchmark, the best here and posted the fastest final 800m, 400m and 200m sectionals as well. Placed at this track at her only appearance here, she has Sam Clipperton back on board today who is yet to miss a podium finish in three previous rides. Fitter for two runs back, she will give this a real shake.


The Mark Newnham-trained ASSIDUITY (best odds currently $2.80 with Palmerbet) is third-up today and dropping back to provincial class, looks a big prospect in this contest. Last start, the son of Deep Field came off his maiden win (on this track) and faced city class company in a BM64 over 1200m at Warwick Farm. He was far from disgraced as he tried to lead all the way, but ran out of gas over the concluding stages, still hanging on for third prize. He ran the trip out, 2.7 lengths slower than benchmark, still the best in this field by more than 4 lengths. Sam Clipperton gets the job today and dropping back to the 1100m trip and fitter for those two runs this time in, he looks right in the mix today.


James Cummings saddles-up the top two here with BRILLAR (best odds currently $4.60 with Palmerbet) standing out as great value in this contest. Last start, the Exosphere gelding came off his maiden win (on this track) when he stepped-up to BM64 company over 1300m on a Heavy 9 at Wyong. The heavy track got the better of him that day, but he still managed to take home the bronze medal. Cummings puts the blinkers on the three-year-old today who is making the rise to the mile journey here. Golden Slipper winning jockey Brenton Avdulla takes the reins for the first time today and fitter for two runs back, the Godolphin galloper should prove hard to hold out here.
