1200m – Turf

1 Proof Perfect Third-up in Singapore and could be ready to feature. Ran on nicely first-up over an unsuitable 1000m but was fair second-up. Keep safe.
2 Water Rocket Beaten as favourite first-up over 1200m on the Polytrack, leading most the way but tiring late and beaten two lengths. Will have come on well for the run and remains a top chance here.
3 Jr Malone Second-up in Singapore after a fair effort first-up 21 days ago. Should have come on well for the run and is more than capable in Class 4 company based on his prior Australian form.
4 Gentlemen Agreement Racing consistently, having not finished out of the top three since joining the Shane Baertschiger stables five starts ago. Trialled well for his return and looks a key player.
5 Arc Raider Six-year-old who resumes off a 455-day spell but did show ability earlier in his career. Looked okay in a recent trial but the market could be telling for his return.
6 Luck Of Friendship Drifted noticeably first-up 21 days ago and was well-beaten into 10th. Finished an okay second at his prior start but so far, he mixes his form and is a hard one to catch.
7 Royal Pavilion Should be an improver second-up after a flashing light run into fifth 21 days ago. Looks a clear top 3 hope in a race like this and must be considered.
8 Quantum Ran a better-than-it-reads fourth first-up 21 days ago, closing off hard and fast inside the final two furlongs.  Has not won for a long time but recent runs suggest he’s capable of winning again soon.
9 Cavalla Court A one-time winner from five who looked well in a recent trial and could be an improver first-up. A spot in the finish wouldn’t shock.
10 Time To Rock Went off short in the market last time out after a good run into second but could only manage seventh. Inconsistent and take on trust.
11 Eastiger


Not the worst on best form but is still yet to win in Class 4 after 11 attempts. Has some credible minor place finishes in the grade, which could hold him in good stead.
12 Lord O’Reilly


Showed no interest first-up over 1100m but did return the third fastest last 400m in the race. Remains unplaced in the grade and may need it easier than this.
13 Flying Tourbillon


Lightly-raced and boasts credible form lines for a race of this nature. Was last seen racing wide throughout when in the market and seems capable of a top 3 finish.
14 Perfect Needs a big improvement to feature in this race after a string of moderate runs. Others are preferred.
15 Braced Inconsistent 6yo who has two wins from 14 starts next to his name. Ran home encouragingly first-up and could surprise second-up.
16 Red Claw Old-timer who won two starts ago but in Class 5. Showed no interest first-up 36 days ago and a win would shock in Class 4 at this stage of his career.
