Form suggests the winner will come from the top three picks.
COSTA CHIN CHIN in the money last start running third at Orange and has five placings from seven runs this prep, a close top selection.
TOUGH DECISION ran fourth last start at Wagga Wagga and should be near the speed in a race without much early pace, consider. POST FREE has the speed to overcome drawing the widest barrier and placed when fresh, can figure.
FIVE STAR MISS finished in the middle of the pack last start at Albury and should run fitter for past attempts, looks threatening.
MY SOLAKI back after 17 week break and placed when on debut at Gundagai, a winning chance. BAUTISTA first start and has been trialling well in build-up to this prep, could threaten. KATATONIC placed last start at Wagga Wagga and drops 4kg from last run, place claims. THUWAANY drops 1.5kg from last run and likely to race off the speed, needs the breaks.
