LA LA LUCHIE (R3 No. 10) - is a superbly bred filly by Medaglia D’oro out of Zabeel mare Elegant Eagle whose three other foals to race are Go Indy Go, Essay Raider and Battle Brewing, all blacktype performers. This filly is 2s 0-1-1. She got rolled at $1,55 last start but should win this time. SO BELAFONTE (R1 No. 6) - is another royally bred type, this time a 4YO by Medaglia D’oro out of Very Discreet (say no more). The Phillip Stokes traned galloper is 4s 0-2-1 and loks to have the measure of his rivals by some margin in fact. MAPPING (R4 No. 4) - is a well named son of Henrythenavigator. This Robbie Laing trained 5YO won at Bendigo on Aug 13 then ran a huge race the $26 at M’ville when 3l.-l4ns 32nd to Kellstorm. Form reads well for this.
