TURQUOISE HOPE can go close in the opener. The gelding from the Phillip Stokes stable has had two starts and was 3rd on debut on the Ballarat Synthetic on June 23 before fading into 6th placing after a tough run at Sandown over the 1200m. The son of Snitzel returns from five months off the scene and went six lengths slower than standard benchmark at his first run before going three lengths slower. Only In Hot Water has produced something comparable at this stage when he went five lengths slower in a run back in April. He has attracted support in the early betting and should find this setting easier than his first two runs.

Best Value comes up in Race 6 of the day with SPEARS. The four-year-old drops to BenchMark 58 level and won in this grade back in September but has finished out of the money since then. At her most recent assignment, she tackled a BM64 at Kyneton and settled towards the rear of the field before coming out wide and closing off steadily behind Carlingford, finishing 7th, beaten less than three lengths. She went 3.7 lengths slower than standard, which is good enough for this grade and they are the best last start figures of any runner, The daughter of Squamosa gets the blinkers back on and from barrier 2 she should be in the thick of the action.
