The Runners

BLUEBERRY HILL and PRESS STATEMENT are fighting for favouritism with the latter a slightly shorter price of around $4.60. The Chris Waller trained colt has had 2 wins from 2 career starts and looks a promising horse! Filly BLUEBERRY HILL is better at the weights but she’ll have to be just the fifth female to win the race in 22 years. BASSET won well on her debut, but makes a massive 500 metre jump in distance for this. Breeding suggest she’ll cope and we know the Trainer Peter Moody / Jockey Luke Nolan is a winning combination. One at big odds may be CYLINDER BEACH who had some stunning late splits to place third in the Sires produce a fortnight ago. The extra distance looks a positive here. COUNTERATTACK, TYPING and LOOK TO THE STARS are also in the mix.
