A winner on debut, the Matthew Smith-trained LAKE KASTORIA (best odds $2.90 with Bet365) looks well placed here to go back-to-back. Last start, the Contributor filly was on debut when she lined up here in an 1100m Maiden. The three-year-old was inconvenienced several times in the run as she crossed the line in second place. However, jockey Jason Collett fired in a protest which was upheld, awarding him the race. She ran the trip, 2.7 lengths quicker than benchmark, which is 10 lengths better than her rivals here. She also ran the fastest final 200m sectional for the race, all in all a great effort on debut, on a Heavy 8 as well. Kath O’Hara takes the reins today and from gate two she maps to be on speed. After producing the stats that she did from that maiden performance, she looks hard to beat in this contest.


Warwick Farm galloper SO SNEEKY (best odds $3 with Bet365) is unbeaten this time in and looks all set to bring up the hat-trick today. Last start, the Falkirk gelding put on a Winx-type performance when he destroyed a Class 1/Maiden field at Nowra. Over the 1600m that day, he went on to win by seven lengths, running the fastest overall sectionals in the process. He covered the journey, half a length slower than benchmark which still rates 3 lengths better than this field. With a last-start winning margin like that, the step up to 1800m today seem quite trivial. Kath O’Hara also has this ride where she is currently two from two (having ridden him to his two victories to date). From gate, he is expected to take up the front running and it will take a smart one here to run him down.


Locally-trained by Matt Vella, SNIPER LEGEND (best odds $3.80 with Bet365) comes off a solid win (in weaker company) but the juvenile looks right up to this challenge today. Last start, the Capitalist gelding was fresh off a lengthy 21-week break when he ploughed through the heavy going here and beat home his maiden rivals over the 1100m trip. He ran it out, 4.7 lengths quicker than benchmark, which is 6 lengths better than his opposition here. Rachel King takes the ride today and from gate five, maps to settle just behind the pace. With Golden Slipper winning blood running through his veins, he shows a lot of promise and should manage this challenge against the older horses. At the weights and in the heavy conditions today, he looks a genuine winning chance.
