Bendigo R10 No.10 Chorlton Lane

Chorlton Lane (10) seems to produce his best when fresh, as he is here. His first-up record (3:2-1-0) is superb and he’s yet to miss a place in six starts over 1400m. Maher looks to have found a nice return race for him here.

Ethan Brown (57.5kg)
Ciaron Maher
4yoG (b) Mehmas x Asmeen

Randwick R8 No.1 Mr Brightside

I’m going to stick with the peoples champion here – Mr Brightside (1). The horse is absolutely flying and while his Australian Cup run looked disappointing, it was a Good 3 track and on the rock hard surface with Pride Of Jenni setting the tempo she did, it flattened him. Up to Sydney is a positive because you know the track will have some edge off it, and his record there is super. Two Doncaster Miles and a second to Fangirl in the King Charles III. I’m also not sure why people question his ability to perform at 2000m given he was beaten a pimple by Romantic Warrior in the Cox Plate – our premier weight-for-age contest.

Craig Williams (59kg)
Ben, Will & Jd Hayes
6yoG (bay/brown) Bullbars x Lilahjay

Doomben R7 No.1 Miss Joelene

Some of these have black-type ambitions for the Winter. Miss Joelene (1) was too good when resuming against older horses in a midweek Class 2. She was racing at Group level last preparation, gives them all at least 5.5kg but with Jim Orman gets the gun run from the ace and class will prevail.

James Orman (60kg)
Kelly Schweida
3yoF (br) Russian Revolution x Cellargirl


Bendigo R3 No.1 Rocket Tiger

Rocket Tiger (1) was given no hope at The Valley last start, taken back to last before picking off a few rivals late. He drops from a BM84 to BM70 grade and isn’t too badly weighted with 60kg after Clarke’s claim. Expect to see him closer in the run from barrier four.

Sheridan Clarke (63kg)
Ben Brisbourne
5yoG (bay/brown) Cluster x Takook

Randwick R5 No.11 Joliestar

Joliestar (11) is first-up off her Thousand Guineas win but I think she’s flying. The two barrier trials have looked great and she wasn’t asked for an effort on each occasion. Going to get a genuine tempo here, which she will love, and there’s not many better jockeys that capitalise on that than Jason Collett.

Jamie Kah (54.5kg)
Chris Waller
3yoF (b) Zoustar x Jolie Bay

Doomben R5 No.2 Beef Week Princess

Daniel Bowen’s stable has been flying and Beef Week Princess (2) is a mare in form only just missing in higher Benchmark grade at Eagle Farm last start. Big weights don’t frighten here and from gate two she will get all the favours with Danny Peisley.

Danny Peisley (62.5kg)
Daniel Bowen
6yoM (b) Casino Prince x Ready To Order
