SAEED BIN SUROOR PAT COSGRAVE
6 $13 Fair share of weight but hard to fault form. Resumed from a threemonth spell on July 12 by winning Princess Of Wales at Newmarket and unbeaten in three runs since, including Caulfield Cup. He just finds a way to get the job done. Yet to be tried at two miles. CHRIS WALLER BEN MELHAM
18 $51 Grand old warrior in his 56th start has more than $4 million in prizemoney. Ran bravely in this race in 2014, ’15 and ’16. Won Sydney Cup in April and his traditional lead-up Moonee Valley Gold Cup run was great. You can count on him doing good work late again. CHRIS WALLER ZAC PURTON
15 $26 Lightly-raced French galloper now with Chris Waller. Drove to line in good style in Geelong Cup to finish third. Should benefit from the hitout and it would be no surprise to see him running on well here and getting into the money with top international jockey Purton on board.
LANCE O’SULLIVAN & ANDREW SCOTT DWAYNE DUNN
14 $101 Well-performed New Zealand fiveyear-old who stays well but he has to bounce back after one of his worst performances, running last in the Coongy Cup. There are better formlines here.
