A wide open contest.
#11 ROYAL INVITATION (6-1) showed good improvement when I had an EW bet at 33-1 and 50-1 last time. She’d actually already had a 3rd start prior to that, but was declared a non-runner after handler interference at the start. Her full brother has won up to 1900m and based on her other siblings too she should relish this trip, so she’s first choice.
Being a Maiden Special Weights, this is in fact a wide open contest and I give a chance to all of 1,3,4,5,6,7,8 and 10 too.
#12 SILVERLINKS (28-10) showed good improvement upped in trip last time and that after having being caught 3 wide around the bend too. Her mark of 82 looks rather high though and she has a tough task here with 59,5kgs and the widest draw to overcome, so I’M AGAINST HER.
SELECTION: 11 first choice, but many with a chance.
