Thereabouts two starts back from a spell, the Gillian Heinrich-trained CHILLIWACK (best odds $1.60 with Unibet) is at skinny odds with the bagmen but should get the job done just the same. Last start, the Exceed And Excel gelding finished out of the money, here in a 1200m maiden but was beaten just half a length on the line. He ran the trip, 9.8 lengths slower than benchmark, still the third-best in this line-up and only half a length behind Focus, the best here. The drying track can only boost his chances and from gate two, he will be right in amongst it. He is our best of the day.


Six starts into this preparation and THE LOVE OF MARY (best odds $3.30 with Unibet) has done everything but win, boasting four podium finishes so far and deserves a change of luck here. Last start, the ever-efficient Under The Louvre filly beat all but one home at Ipswich in a QTIS Two-Year-Old Hcp over 1350m on a Heavy 10 that day. She ran her last 600m, 3.4 lengths quicker than benchmark, the best in this line-up by 5 lengths. She also posted the fastest final 600m and 400m sectionals for the race. Drawn ideally in gate two, Scott Galloway sticks with her here and maps to box-seat on settling. With a trouble-free run here, she is capable of upsetting the odds-on favourite in this contest.


Still in search of his first win at the track, HONORABLE SPIRIT (best odds $4.40 with Bet365) ticks enough boxes here to suggest it can happen in this event. Last start, the Charm Spirit gelding put up a good fight at Toowoomba but couldn’t match it with the first two past the post, taking home third prize that day in a strong Class 3 contest over 1650m. John Smerdon brings him back home here and puts him over further ground as he drops back slightly in grade. Jaden Lloyd is back in the saddle here for his second rise on the four-year-old and from gate four, maps to settle in the first half dozen with cover. All things going well, he looks right in the mix here and will give this a real shake.
