A Prince of Arran - Lacks a lot of class when compared to the other internationals. Could see him possibly running on to run top 5 given he has been running well here already but he shouldnt be competing for a win. The races he has been running in havent been all that strong either and there is no chance he turns the tables on Yucatan.
A genuine 30-1 or 35-1 shot for mine and is now too short after winning the Lexus
5th last year
Gets the chance to take the short cuts again this year from an inside barrier.
Hasn't had a lot of luck in some of his races since last year.
Putting a line through his MV run
Likes the distance and the wet
He's my 100-1 outsider
Give this girl a chance based on her CC run though 3200m is the obvious query. Light weight, loves the wet though no mare has even run a place in this race since Makybe Diva. Not sure what to read into that.
2nd most intriguing horse for mine. It's not good enough, i don't think.
it might just be the most suited horse to the track/dist. love the way it runs for increasing in trip i think it eats up 3200m. terribly underpriced on ability but i think it will run a clear PB, run top 10 but probably find multiple better than it barring a freak spike.
Youngstar - One of the ones in the market that i give little chance to at all. Outside of its 2nd to Winx it has shown no real indication it has the ability to compete at this level. 3yo qld form is not up to it. Its run in the CC was not terrible but no where near good and i feel like that was the race it was set for.
A 4yo local mare is enough to put the line through it anyway
