Plenty of speed here as you would expect over the 810m, but I have settled on an each-way selection that should be off the pace early. They will fly, (2) Gunnaza is drawn well and although he has tactical speed, he may not be able to go the early burn over the first furlong. He has been up for a long time and is a little enigmatic so he will need to bring his A game. He was good on the heavy track up the Highway at Balling two back, then was well beaten at Hawkesbury last time after being wide throughout. Jon Grisedale goes back on, he rode him at Newcastle at his last win back in April. They will scoot along and Gunnaza should be finishing as good as any.
The feature of the day is the Sawtell Cup over 1515m, (4) Editors is first-up after a two-month break and draws well in the centre of the line. He won two in a row last prep at Gosford and Port Macquarie, had no luck at Scone in the Country Cup and then missed by a half head in the Gunnedah Cup at his last start. He looks well in with the 56.5kg. He will be mid-field and hitting the line hard but does have to improve on his first-up record. (5) Nistelrooy is racing well in easier fields, he looks a big risk with the bar plates on and 6-weeks between runs. Up in grade but not sure the jockey booking is a positive. (2) Cool Prince settled closer last time, expect that he will go forward again from the wider draw. (9) Achi Baba is racing well this prep and should be at full fitness now. It looks an open race.
(2) Logan River won two in a row last prep before being outclassed in the $1M Inglis 3YO Sprint at the back-end of his last campaign. He was ok when narrowly missing a place at Canberra resuming but did have every chance, then went to Randwick in a Class 3 Highway on the heavy track and was stuck on the rail in what was probably the inferior part of the track. He lost a plate in the run that day also, the wide draw looks a negative on paper but back on top of the ground I expect him to be ridden positively and be able to control the race from outside the leader.
(11) Gratuitous is a maiden stepping up and taking on previous winners at Class One level. She hasn’t exactly been lighting the track on fire but although this is not a maiden, it is certainly a winnable race. She was poor at Ipswich two back, the was stuck wide at that same track last time before going forward and sitting on the speed but was beaten off late. Of the inside alley here with no weight, back in trip she should be close in the run and will run out the trip. There is a lot of wet track form here and happy to take on those that are getting back on top of the ground.
(2) Tambo’s Mate will start very short and these tips aren’t everyone’s cup of tea, but he really does look a put-in, take-out job. He won two in a row at the start of the prep including a $75k QTIS race against the 3YO’s, then was at that same level last time at Doomben and stuck on ok after being up on the speed. He has enough tactical speed to go forward and control, he will have too much class and he will be winning better races than this.
