Backstedt (Flemington R7 No. 5) - is racing in career best form and comes here after a dominant display at this track last start, stays down in the weights and is assured to run the trip whereas a few of his main rivals are on trial at.
Hunter Jack (Warwick Farm R7 No. 2) - comes here after 3 runs back from a spell and looks extremely well weighted after the claim, should get a good run from the gate and prove very hard to beat.
Paseo Del Prado (Ascot R7 No. 5) - this former Sydney galloper opened his account with an easy win in the Wild West on debut there recently and despite going up sharply in weight gets his chance to win again.
