Fabulonh (Sandown, Race 3)
Fabulonh is a horse worth following this preparation. This three-year-old colt has taken a while to hit his straps but it all came together at the back-end of last campaign when the blinkers went on. Damien Oliver has stuck with this horse all along and rides again here. Off his jumpouts and with the inside gate he is a massive show in a very deep midweeker. Take the each-way odds first-up and stick with him.
Frothed (Sandown, Race 2)
This filly has brought nothing but heartache for punters. However, this is her day. She ran second at Geelong first-up at $1.50 but the time was pretty slick. She was then outgunned at Moe on a very heavy track. This daughter of Lonhro is much more dynamic on top of the ground, as evidenced by her second to Dixie Chick last campaign. Expect her to win on a good track today.
Last Moment (Gold Coast, Race 3)
This five-year-old mare is a 20 start maiden but this is her day. She’s suited this distance range and liked her closing effort at the Sunshine Coast last start when running second to Mysterium after settling handier in the run. From a soft draw today she’s likely to box seat again. The claim of Josh Oliver gets her in with 52.5kg. She’s long overdue.
Queen Tara (Gold Coast, Race 7)
Peter Robl has really turned around this Northern Meteor filly. Her form was mixed before this preparation where she put the writing on the wall at Canberra with a brilliant Randwick trial. At Canberra she got there in the last stride. She then went down chasing at Kembla behind the handy Echo Prince. Winkers go on here to sharpen her up and she looks beautifully placed in the Class 3 at the GC.
3,4,10 / 2,3,5 / 3,4,10 / 1,3,11.
