The Auries Star Handicap is always one of the highlights of August racing in Melbourne and features a mix of the best winter gallopers, as well as those kicking off their spring campaigns. GREAT AGAIN (PLACE) gets the tick for mine back at Flemington and on the likely Soft ground. The eight-year-old was a tough winner when resuming on the Heavy at headquarters back in late May, holding out Rich Charm and Home Of The Brave and has had his runs spaced out since then. He pulled up with issues at Moonee Valley and was then taken on a long way out when runner-up behind Lord Von Costa back at Flemington in the Vic Sprint Series Final (1200m). At his last start, he again settled on speed before placing behind some quality types in Viridine and Streets Of Avalon in the Bletchingly. He has gone more than 11 lengths quicker than benchmark at his past two runs and should have the advantage on those that have been racing in the last month or so, while he enjoys a fitness edge on the fresh horses.

NICCANOVA (PLACE) returns off an eight week break at Doomben and shapes as a solid top three candidate in Race 8 of the afternoon. The seven-year-old narrowly missed out on Group 1 glory in the Stradbroke (1400m) two starts ago and was desperately unlucky over the 1600m following that behind Gaulois. He drops sharply to the 1050m but is one from one at the distance, while he does have a clear class edge on this lot. He generally races well when on the fresh side and has landed in the money in eight of his past 10 runs with the past three of those coming at Group level. From barrier 5, he will sit just off them and will go very close to taking this one out.

Race 8 at Flemington is a BenchMark 90 over the 1000m and ROCK PROPHET (PLACE) shapes as a sneaky contender at the double figure odds. The new season four-year-old takes on the older horses and overcame trouble when resuming at Bendigo on June 21 before finishing a close up runner-up behind Wilmot Pass over the 1200m here on July 18. On that occasion, the Ray Besanko-trained galloper was slowly away and tailed off in the early stages but ran on strongly to share the lead before just being outkicked by the winner. He drops back to the 1000m and will get back but is capable of some slick closing splits. He ran his last 600m more than 13 lengths quicker than benchmark last time and was 11 lengths quicker overall, which measures up well against this lot, while the 2kg claim for Lewis German is another boost to his credentials.

TAILLEUR (WIN) gets his chance to bounce back in Race 8 of the day at Rosehill after missing out behind Killin at the Kensington track three Saturday’s ago. On that occasion, there was some serious leader bias on course and the winner was allowed to set a moderate pace up front before sticking to the paint and winning by over two. It was a bit of a tough watch for Tallieur backers, who was posted wide without cover but kept coming gamely to fill the exacta. While he is short in early markets, the form out of that race has held up. Four of the beaten brigade have since had one run with three of those winning. The son of performs on the Heavy, while the track should be even enough for the swoops to come out wide later on the day.
