1000m – Turf

1 Property Resumed from spell with sound 3.4 lengths 4th to Snitty Kitty in G2 Caulfield Sprint (1000m) on 21 October. Came wide that day which was disadvantage. Back to own age and won three of previous five starts. Has won on good and heavy ground and likely to track just behind the speed. Unknown on straight course.
2 Bandipur Consistent performer coming to straight course for first time after sound short head win from I Did It Again in Caulfield 1100m 3YO sprint on 23 September. Won on good and soft ground and can be ridden forward or back.
3 Wait For No One Showed speed, had chance when 1.8 lengths 4th to Modern Wonder in Moonee Valley (955m) Benchmark 78 Handicap on 6 October. Placed two previous runs down the straight 1000m course. Has early speed and best form on good ground (unplaced only start on soft track).
4 Madeenaty Worked hard on speed and held on well when 1.6 lengths 4th to Sam’s Image in 3YO Handicap at Moonee Valley (1000m) on 27 October. Had four starts down straight 1000m course for one win and three placings. Likely to race on speed, if not lead. All runs, apart from unplaced effort in G1 Golden Slipper, have been on good ground.
5 Piracy Showed speed and held on well when 0.5 lengths 2nd to Goodfella in Listed Crowley Stakes (1200m) at Randwick on 21 October. Sound record on good and soft ground and will be prominent from barrier rise. First run down straight course.
6 Sam’s Image Second to the in-form Eptimum at 1100m before led throughout in 0.4 lengths win from Nature Strip in 3YO Handicap (1000m) at Moonee Valley on 27 October. Has good early speed and placed only previous straight course run when finished alongside Madeenaty. All runs have been on good ground.
7 Easy Beast Won 1000m Maiden two starts back and then raced on pace to score 1.7 lengths win from My Unicorn in 3YO Benchmark 64 Handicap (1100m) at Morphettville on 14 October. Promising horse with good early speed. All runs have been on good ground.
8 Nature Strip Ran on strongly when 0.4 lengths 2nd to Sam’s Image in 3YO Handicap (1000m) at Moonee Valley on 27 October. That followed debut win at 1000m at Mornington, also on good ground. Likely to settle off the speed. Has scope for further improvement.
9 Paret Debut winner at Canterbury 1250m before sound 0.4 lengths 3rd to Beau Geste in 3YO Benchmark 74 Handicap (1300m) at Rosehill  on 23 September. Fresh for this 1000m race and will be hitting the line strongly. Both runs on good ground.
10 Choisborder Raced on speed in sound nose win, at third race start, from Seized in 3YO Maiden (1200m) at Moonee Valley on 6 October. Likely to race handy and looks to be OK on good or soft ground.
11 Prezado Placed two of three starts and was close fourth, down the straight 1100m course, on the other occasion. Had no luck and finished hard when resumed from spell with 0.75 lengths 2nd to Banter in 3YO Maiden (1100m) at Echuca on 27 October. Will settle back in the field. Only seen good tracks.
12 William Thomas Impressive on debut when finished hard in head win from Choisborder in 3YO Maiden (1100m) at Ararat on 26 September. Has since won barrier trial on 23 October. Likely to settle off speed. Debut win on good track. Has handled soft ground in trials.
13 Lenticular First start. Dam did not win a race in four starts. At stud, she has produced the very fast and talented sprinter Didntcostalot who’s won ten races. Has not appeared at official barrier trials.
