1600m – Turf

1 Makanani Will find this easier than recent starts but her first-up run was poor and hard to recommend here.
2 Elite Quarteto Remains unplaced from six local starts to date and resumes for a new stable. Needs it easier and others are preferred.
3 Minister Has shown good ability in Singapore, with two wins from three starts, and aims for a hat-trick this week. Sees Class 2 for the first time, but this is a highly-winnable race.
4 Sacred Croix Raced keen first-up but checked home an eye-catching fifth place. More than capable of winning and the step up in trip looks ideal. Good chance. 
5 Bahana Old-timer who has not won for 1365 days. A big improvement is needed to feature and hard to recommend in a race like this.
6 Pax Animi Thriving five-year-old who won impressively first-up over 1400m in Class 3 14 days ago. Sees Class 2 for the first time but is on an upward trend, en route to the Derby.
7 Time Lord Was ridden quiet first-up, which is contrary to his usual tactics when winning from on the lead two starts ago. Rises in class here and place claims are preferred.
8 Per Inpower Overlook last start when badly held up and finishing a luckless 11th place. More than capable on his day but can be hard to catch.
9 Augustus Showed no interest over 1400m first-up, settling at the rear but returning good late splits to check home three lengths into ninth. Capable of surprising rising in distance and consider.
10 Ocean Crossing Looks hard to win on his current rating but has been consistent in 13 career starts, which should hold him in good stead. Light-weight claims on just 106lb.
