Lord Gee was a bit disappointing at his debut here last week but I know he is much better than that and he should show tremendous improvement from the red draw. Back in December he scored back to back wins at Bulli in sizzling times and if he can bring that form to town he will take a power of beating.

Knight Sprite is drawn to get a nice sit behind the red and he has recorded two handy placings over this journey in recent weeks. He lacks early speed but he does have good mid race pace and he should put himself into a threatening position as they head for the back straight.

Overstocked is extremely consistent and he will settle near the speed, he has been placed in all four tries here with one of those efforts being a victory, I dont think he can win but he should hold on for some minor money.

Uno Justice rounds out the place chances, he is yet to win here in 17 tries but he has recorded six solid placings.

Top Four: 1 – 2 – 7 – 6

Army Surplus can be hard to follow at times but when he steps cleanly he is capable of running scintillating sectionals. He tends to race better from wide draws and he posted his 29.61 PB here from box seven, so he should get every chance from out here. Two starts back he showed a return to form with a devastating 29.93 Bathurst win and a repeat of that run will see him win with ease.

Zola Icon returned to her best with an impressive 30 flat win here last week and she should give a nice sight again, she is likely to lead but I think she may get burnt off mid race by the pink.

Kalden Kostello has turned in three solid efforts since coming over from SA and he should continue to get better, his lack of early speed is a concern but if he isn’t far away mid race he should be able to make an impact.

Top Four: 8 – 6 – 3 – 2

Suggested Bets:

Win bet on Army Surplus with William Hill
