Brooklyns Best can be aggressive from the draw to cross Theartofinfusion. Matai Valour may head forward. Backintown may get off the pegs and make a mid race move. SUGGESTED BET - BROOKLYNS BEST TO WIN
Horse 6 Off Front Line Expected Early Pace Pattern Rating Comment
THEARTOFINFUSION
Form: 9 5 5 8 8
LD
Leader
$10.00 Back from QLD where he has been struggling but from the soft draw he could be an improver. Watch the betting.
BROOKLYNS BEST
Form: 5 7 7 r 7
LD
Leader
$3.25 Another back from QLD who is down on form but has GS and this draw suits. Would take beating if she can find her best.

FT
Forward with a Trail
$17.00 Sit/sprinter who gets a much needed class drop but also has to find a bit more.

Form: s 5 7 5 5
LD
Leader
$21.00 May roll forward here but had every hope last time. Have a few a ahead.
MOST HAPPY CULLEN
Form: 3 4 7 8 9

Back with a Trail
$13.00 Tends to get back from gates like this but the class drop helps. Can figure if the tempo allows.
MAMMALS MAGIC

BT
Back with a Trail
$26.00 Another who will probably get back and is more an outsider in this.
Back Row
BACKINTOWN
Form: 3 2 1 5 3
MM
Mid Race Move
$3.50 Sound effort last time when he worked. A tricky draw but he can get off the pegs and may make a move. Right in this.
STARZZZINTHEMAKIN
Form: 1 5 s 1 9
MT
Midfield with a Trail
$3.50 Impressive first up when the tempo did help and then he made a break last time when right in the betting. Has to be given another chance.
