This is a real open affair with Port Macquarie galloper, DRAGON DREAM on a quick back-up and going on his recent efforts, will take beating in this event. Two starts back, he was having just his second race start when he finished third in a 1506m maiden on his home track. Then last start, he lined up in a Ballina maiden over 1590m and on a Heavy 8 that day, destroyed his opposition, carrying 58.5kgs to win by almost five lengths on the line. This looks no harder and with Luke Rolls remaining aboard, he looks a genuine winning chance again.


First-up and drawn wide, these are good reasons (for some) to steer clear of SUBTLE GREY but having his first start for a new stable, I believe he can reproduce his current trial form and give this a real shake. Formerly with the Wayne Wilkes stable at Taree, the Murtajill gelding is now in the hands of Port Macquarie trainer Allan Kehoe and one look at his trial results tells us he is very happy with his new surroundings. After almost 18 months off the scene, it makes it difficult to line up the form here, however, his last two starts resulted in a win in the Wingham Cup and a close-up second in the HOPKINS LIVERMORE CUP, both run on the Taree track. Since arriving at his new stable, he has trialled three times (all at Port Macquarie) for two wins and a second placing which indicates he is ready to go. With his early gate speed, he maps to be sitting better than mid-field (despite the wide draw) and from there, should give Mikayla Weir a nice run for her first time in the saddle. Already a first-up winner, he looks well worth an each-way ticket here.


Newcastle trainer Kris Lees saddles up two runners here with both of them dominating the market. With two starts already under her belt, I’m running with JAJA CHABOOGIE to get the job done today. The Your Song mare kicked off her career with a boom, finishing top-three in all four starts (winning two) during her first campaign. After 22 weeks in the paddock, she resumed at Muswellbrook with an eye-catching third in a BM58 while carrying 59.5kgs. Then last start, that nasty ‘second-up syndrome’ hit hard as she finished unplaced in a BM64 at Gosford. Today, Dylan Gibbons returns (after his Muswellbrook ride) and after the swarm of early scratchings here, sees the mare starting from gate four. She maps to be on pace and already a winner when third-up, looks the one to beat here.
