Magic Of Dreams (Race 4, No.1) looks nicely placed here despite the big impost.
She is the class mare of the field evident from her second in town two runs back, beating home Flamboyant Lass. She then had no luck at Rosehill, never getting a clear crack at her rivals before finishing last. She had plenty to offer though.
Barrier 3 and Avdulla steering should see her bounce straight back.
The man with the strongest form coming in is unquestionably Dustin Johnson.
With his putter finally cooperating, his performance at both the US Open, and his weekend run at Firestone last week, left very few with a chance. If he can bring the same sort of consistency – and make his trademark fast start on Thursday – he will be tough to run down.
Jason Day will be spurred on from his unfortunate late-round collapse at the Bridgestone last week, and like Johnson, his best is scintillating. But if we’re going to play that game, so is McIlroy’s and so is Spieth’s.
