I’m sticking with DIAMONDS in the opening race after the South Aussie scored at Pakenham on November 26. The Ryan Balfour filly rises to BenchMark 64 level and in her recent win she settled on the speed. She led them up as they rounded before being taken on a long way out by Sugartown and holding on from that horse, while those two put a bit of a gap on the 3rd placegetter, Auclert. Prior to that, she missed out by a length behind All Banter at Morphettville and that horse announced herself as a likely type with a slashing win at Moonee Valley last weekend. The daughter of Rich Enuff went nearly four lengths faster than standard benchmark in that race, which is three lengths faster than the personal best of Martini Special and nearly six lengths faster than what any other runner in this race has produced in their careers to date. She should be suited at the Valley and with the 3kg claimer, Will Price, on board, she will be hard to hold out.

BOTTMINGEN can go one spot better than a debut effort that saw him finish runner-up at Moe on November 11. In that race, the four-year-old settled in a midfield position and worked home well at the business end to just miss out behind Miss Albania. He went right on standard benchmark in that race, producing the best last start figures of any runner and might be open to improvement at his second start. He has drawn wide for this assignment but the tempo looks genuine and if Michael Dee can find a spot early on then the son of Swiss Ace should be right in the mix at the business end.

We line up over the Cox Plate distance in Race 7 of the evening and it is LAUNDY that can break through after a series of close up performances. The four-year-is on the back up after running into the impressive Ocean’s Thirteen on November 28. In that race, he settled just behind the leaders and did all the chasing behind the eventual winner, landing just over two lengths away. The Trent Busuttin & Natalie Young galloper went more than five lengths faster than standard benchmark, which are the best last start figures of any runner and only has to produce a similar effort to take out this race. He won at Echuca after a short break earlier this preparation and will settle in the front half with Nash Rawiler to ride.
