1600m – Turf

1 Loyalty Man Had been racing in a higher grade and appreciated the drop back in class when he raced on the speed and held on well for 3rd. Is weighted highly but can run a good race.
2 Destroyer Eclipse On speed runner who showed speed and weakened badly when fresh up two weeks ago behind Minister. Will be suited by the rise in trip and look for improvement.
3 Tesoro Privado On speed runner who is struggling to recapture his best form. Raced handy but gave little last run and is hard to recommend.
4 Churchill Resumed with a massive win when trapped five wide the entire trip over 1200m on the Polytrack and drew away to score impressively. Has trialled well since. Hard to beat.
5 Mat Smart Former Malaysia galloper who failed to show up at his Singapore debut and needs it easier.
6 Heliosphere Has ability but has issues and was reported to be a roarer several times now. Last start was slow away and settled back but failed to run on. Is struggling to find form.
7 Dicton Handy stayer who resuming and did not do much in a recent trial but could sprint well fresh. 
8 Inherit Dropped back to Class 4 and outclassed his rivals with an easy win when he travelled wide but drew away to score. Rises back to Class 3 and this looks tougher.
9 Glasgow Disappointed at his return run behind Pax Animi and has been struggling for a while. Hard to recommend.
10 Vittoria Perfetta Was ridden quietly last start and failed to produce anything. Previously showed speed in his races but appears one paced. Watch for race tactics announcement.
11 Star Jack Failed to show up at his return start two weeks ago when he weakened noticeably in the straight. Has never won second-up from a break.
12 Luck Of Master Won twice in Class 4 races before showing he can measure up to this class with a solid 4th place effort last start, when he ran the fastest final 400m of the race. Value chance.
13 So Hi Class Ridden perfectly when winning a much easier race last start and will find this class much tougher. Place at best.
14 Adipson Handy five-year-old who gets back and charges home in his races. Did not have much luck last start when finishing 8th place and he can play a part in the finish here.
15 Buddy Buddy  Has early speed and should be near the lead but hard to see him troubling these. 
16 Wind Trail Has always shown ability but disappointed at his return when 14th to Minister. Should be fitter and can improve.
