Bit After Nine is showing plenty of potential and if she can repeat his sizzling 24.84 winning effort here in September she should prove very hard to run down. On that occasion she began well and showed tremendous early speed, she will probably need to lead again but she is quite reliable early so she shouldn’t have too many problems.
Anna Ray Girl is the value in the race, she should be around the $10 mark and she is better than her form reads. She races well from wide draws and if they shuffle up underneath her she may just zip away mid race.
Salegreys Power has the class edge and if she begins cleanly she will be right in the mix, there is a bit of speed drawn around her so she must do everything right early.
Top Four: 6 – 8 – 3 – 4

Accomplished has been racing in much stronger company of late and he has been highly competitive in those events. He looks perfectly placed in the pink draw and he has won here previously in a blistering 24.75. There is a bit of speed drawn in five and six but if he can get away smoothly he should burn them off as they head into the first turn.
Zambora Power is aiming for a hat trick of wins and he should be in the mix for a long way, he sizzles early in his races but his last 30m can be a struggle at times.
Time To Embrace is a lid pinger and she has a great record here, the box draw doesn’t suit but her good box manners should help her overcome it.
Dr. Thanos rounds out the chances, he is another who grows a leg here and he is drawn to run a big race.
