Montreal shapes as a group horse of the future and can continue on his winning way with his first ever city win here at his home track.
From the in-form Waterhouse/Bott stable, his first up win at Wyong was effortless when sent out a $1.28 favourite, but he still managed to run very impressive time.
This is naturally a much harder race but to The Wolf’s eye he looks a future star and this will be the first of many city wins.
Bella Martini comes here after a dominant last start win at Moonee Valley and looks a terrific chance to win her third race at her sixth career start.
From the powerful Hawkes yard, she led all the way to win last time out by an increasing two and a quarter length margin.
Luke Currie should give her every chance from the good draw and she can go on with it today.
Showpero ran a terrific race first up at Moonee Valley first up over 955m and looks primed to go one better at a track and distance she thrives at.
Trained at Strathalbyn by Wayne Francis and Glen Kent, she was all but home at the Valley before the very talented Invincible Al got the drop on her late.
With Irish Mint likely to cross over and lead, Raquel Clark can give her the perfect sit just behind, and with extra fitness on her side she should be strong through the line.
The weights tell you that Princefamous is well and truly the class runner of this field and he can record his first ever win at headquarters despite the big impost.
His first up run was full of merit behind Test The World at Rosehill – he led them up on that occasion but the early work and lack of match fitness told late.
Blake Shinn should be able to control the race from the front and with the fitness benefit he will have derived from his first up run, Princefamous should take plenty of beating.
Dee I Cee was a Listed race winner back in the spring and can be highly competitive here on his best form.
Gai elected to freshen him up following that spring campaign and he comes here second up after a respectable effort first up in the Muswellbrook Cup under 62Kg.
He comes here second up over 2000m, an almost identical formula to when he won the Premier’s Cup in August. At $34 in early markets he has plenty of each way appeal.
