FOREST WAR can go close at his first run back from a spell. The four-year-old returns after a two-start summer campaign that saw him finish 5th and within a length of Platinum Bullet in a Saturday Rating 66+, while at his only other run he was caught wide but stuck on for 3rd behind Leica Jaguar over the 1000m at Ascot. He went 3.2 lengths faster than standard benchmark in the first up run and when resuming at his campaign prior he went four lengths faster than standard when winning at the track and trip ahead of Guesteen earlier last year. They are the best figures that any of the runners in this race have produced in the past two years. A slight firmer in early betting, he will sit close to the speed from barrier 7 and should be hard to hold out at the business end.

BIG SCREEN can go on with the job after taking out his Maiden in impressive fashion over the 1500m here on April 2. On that occasion, the three-year-old led them up and set a solid tempo up front before kicking on strongly to win by nearly three lengths from Gee Force. He went 3.2 lengths faster than standard benchmark in that race and those figures are better than what any runner in this race has produced in the past two years, while he should be open to further improvement early in his career. Another pointer to his chances is that only one horse out of that race has since had a run and that was the 7th placegetter, Hinchinmose, who was beaten seven lengths by Big Screen but snared a win at Pinjarra at his next start. Big Screen will look to roll forward again and will take some running down.

We stretch out over the 2400m and RED HOT TIP can turn the tables on Final Chill after finishing 5th to that horse in the Jericho Cup Qualifier on April 2. In that race, the Simon Miller-trained gelding was third up and settled in a midfield spot but was caught in traffic for a long time in the straight before gaining the split at the 200m mark and sticking on for 5th. He was stepping up from the 1600m at his start prior when producing the fastest last 200m behind Thats Funny Az. The WA Derby runner-up from last year should have the fitness now at his fourth run back and meets Final Chill 2.5kg better at the weights with the apprentice jockey, Kristy Bennett, on board. If the 3kg claimer can find some cover from the wide gate in the early stages, the pair will be hard to hold out at this business end.
