All eyes on the great mare as WINX tries to make it 20 wins in a row! Tempo from RED EXCITEMENT again, who strode clear before getting grabbed by the champ late two weeks ago, setting up a FAIR tempo. WINX only needs a little luck from the inside barrier to be too classy again, her finishing surge irresistible last start and she's sure to be even stronger third-up (a scary thought!). RED EXCITEMENT in the mix for a place again, along with ECUADOR and MACKINTOSH near the pace too. HAPPY CLAPPER did out-class many of these fresh and is the clear second top rater on form, but he does need a good ride from the barrier. FOXPLAY the other key place chance after almost lowering WINX's colours a few weeks ago in an easier race. [updated 8:48am]

Too strong first-up, surging home off a STEADY tempo to win G2 Tramway over 1400m. Up in distance ideal, but is against world's best and is drawn wide. Place only.
Expected to hold form or marginally improve on G2 win fresh. The key positive is DISTANCE, the key negative for him is POSITION IN RUN (poor barrier). Place seems likely.
Legend of a horse, goes in all the exotics.

Not far off when 3rd to WINX in 1400m G2 Warwick Stakes before 4th to HAPPY CLAPPER in 1400m G2 Tramway last start. Around the mark. Value place bet.
Should hold form third-up. Key positive factors are DISTANCE and POSITION IN RUN, he maps to get the nice trail behind RED EXCITEMENT. Shouldn't be too far away.
Rock solid and massive odds to run 2nd or 3rd. A few bucks to place. Gai's flying!

Rolled along in lead and only caught late by WINX in the 1600m G2 Chelmsford. Racing in great form last two preps. Place chance again.
Should perform well again if gets the right POSITION IN RUN (leading on his own), which is some risk with ECUADOR in the race. Conditions must suit to place.
G Ryan can train a horse. This flying 8yo is another for the trifecta.

Breeding

DamSireRed Ransom

Type: Big-Striding Strong Gelding

Muscle: STRONG
Genuine: SEMI-PROFESSIONAL (PREFERS GALLOPING ROOM)
Progression: Was near career best last prep, no further improvement expected, some risk of decreasing form due to age. First-up form mostly OK (some poor runs), quite RELIABLE through prep apart from off freshen (very mixed form).

Style: Adaptable

[email protected] Has form 1200m to 1400m 1st-up, FAIR to STRONG tempo suits, suited when gets to 1500m+ fitter, then up to 2000m when fit.
Track Conditions: Best form GOOD most tracks. OK to SOFT 6, lesser ratings SOFT 7 or worse. Has failed at Hawkesbury.
Position in Run: Quite ADAPTABLE so can handle most biases and patterns, can make use of ON-PACE bias (+ve). Does prefer galloping room so inside draws in big fields a risk.

Chased home evenly off STEADY tempo for 8th behind HAPPY CLAPPER over 1400m last start. Will get back again from barrier. Hard ask in this grade.
Usually holds similar form 2nd-up, he will need a STRONG tempo to find his best in this race, which isn't that likely it seems. Extra DISTANCE is a positive. POSITION IN RUN a negative.
Tries hard, but this isn't scouts, there's no points for courage.

Got well back and made some ground for 6th to HAPPY CLAPPER off STEADY tempo last start. Would need a new high rating to place in this.
Expected to hold form 2nd-up, which is a level below others here and he is a touch UNRELIABLE. Positives are POSITION IN RUN, the DISTANCE and a fairer TEMPO. Risky.
15 starts, six wins and one 3rd doesn't sound like a place bet. He won't be winning!

Champion mare that only needs to jump cleanly and find room to win. Simply too good last 100m when running down RED EXCITEMENT last start. Her race.
She loves the TRACK, DISTANCE, an honest FAIR tempo and she should be even stronger at this STAGE OF PREP. Slight risk from inside barrier (POSITION IN RUN) the only concern.
Way too good when she wasn't even fit. Now it's time for a Group 1 spanking! The bet.

Ran home OK in midfield when 5th to HAPPY CLAPPER in 1400m G2 Tramway. Did win a G1 second-up last prep. Rough place chance.
Her STAGE OF PREPARATION is the biggest plus, a possible improver from her last start. That gives her a place hope.
Would need the heavens to fall in to beat WINX. Not for me.

Nice trial since very close 2nd to WINX in G2 Warwick Stks first-up. This race has more depth, but she is clearly another with a place chance.
Expected to produce a similar performance 2nd-up, which is good enough to place. The DISTANCE is a positive for her too.
Waller gets these fillies to chase like their life depends on it. Has to go in multiples.
