KIKU (7) finished 2nd behind KEMENTARI over 1350m on a HVY10 at Doomben first run this prep and followed that with a 3rd to SNAPDANCER over 1300 in the Magic Millions Mares race. She has a win and 2 seconds on heavy tracks and with the benefit of 2 runs and a trial under her belt, she should be fit enough to run a bold race. Nash sticks and with the Waller polish, this mare appeals at the $10.


ICEBATH (8) is well weighted here and looks the horse to beat with J Mac the best wet track rider taking the reins. There are a few negatives with her, namely her best work and wins usually coming at her 5th run for a campaign. The wide barrier will mean she will have to go back to last and try to pass all runners. I also suspect she is better at 1600m as per her record. So her current price looks very short at $2.35 to overcome all those obstacles. PROMISE OF SUCCESS (11) ran a nice race when 2nd to SNAPDANCER in the G3 Triscay 1200m at this track last start. Up in class here but she looks a progressive mare that has been lightly raced. She’s adept on wet tracks and gets in with a light weight. She looks a chance.

Betting Approach:

(7) KIKU: 0.4 units each way @ $10.00 win & $2.90 plc


COLETTE (9) finished 2nd behind THINK IT OVER last start in the G2 Apollo 1400. She is 3 from 3 on heavy tracks and was beaten a lip by VERRY ELLEEGANT in this race last year. She is drawn perfectly to box seat in this race and looks the one to beat in the heavy conditions.


VERRY ELLEEGANT (8) ran an ok 4.46 L 7th behind THINK IT OVER in the Apollo 1400 first up after winning the Mlb Cup 3200 last prep. I suspect she will need one more run to bring her to a winning fitness as she still looks to be racing a bit dour. I also suspect that while she is proven on heavy tracks at Rosehill the heavy at Randwick (especially 2nd up) is a tougher ask. That said her class will take her a long way. THINK IT OVER (1) won the G2 Apollo 1400m first up in fine style. The heavy track here is the negative and he might even be scratched. TOP RANKED (3) is the new blood on the scene with 6 wins at the distance in the UK. He’s proven on soft but unknown on heavy. STOCKMAN (6) a good heavy tracker that may be better over further but he could run into the placings.

Betting Approach:

(9) COLETTE: 0.5 units win @ $3.90
