Who are the runners to follow from November 13? (Getty)
Race 1 - Vane Tempest (third): Unsuited when back and wide behind the flying Wilchino fresh, and she's had even less favours here second-up, sitting three-wide on a good speed. The runner-up has come off her back, while the winner didn't spend a penny before getting a split at the 200m and Vane Tempest was spotting weight to both. She still put nearly two lengths on fourth.
Race 7 - Feels Danish (sixth): Sent out at huge odds following a second to Success Play, who lines up in Saturday's WA Guineas. Either way you work it, Searchin' Roc's and Buzzoom finish in the quinella, but Feels Finish should've been closer, chasing throughout in a three-wide position, yet kept coming on the line. Class 1 eligible and with a rating of 56, there's far easier options around.
Race 3 - Xtra Gear (second): This girl arguably should have won, seeing as she was halted for all momentum around the bend and really only got going again in the final 100m, while the eventual winner had the revs up. The money was on for her as well and a three-year-old event at either Sandown or Pakenham in a fortnight to three weeks away will be where she likely heads.
Race 6 - Blazejowski (fourth). The grey gelding from the Eurell stable was super honest first-up over the 1000m where the market suggested that he would be well and truly out-sprinted. What was really impressive was that he attacked the line after looking a tad flat-footed and was within two lengths of the winner. He needs to come up in trip to 1200m next start.
Race 3 - Rule The World (second). Was beaten by Kubrick who is known as a non-winner, but is stakes class on his day and now made it two straight, so that horse has found confidence. Rule The World should've finished close. halted for momentum in the straight, but he did stick to his task nicely along the fence in unfavourable ground.
Race 8 - Baller (third). This bloke has always had stakes-class ability and there is another win just around the corner for him based off his effort in the Keith Noud. The son of High Chaparral is a two-time winner second-up and with fitness under the belt from Saturday, another 1200m assignment looks an ideal target to notch up another win.
Race 3 - Lamoree (fifth): Proved difficult to load into the barriers did this returning filly, who has then failed to muster early speed in this 1000m maiden, which was a little out of character off her prior outings. Still comfortably the pick of the closer in a leader dominated affair and was forced to switch off heels at the 250m, to come wider. Was strong late and the clear eye-catcher here.
Race 7 - Exalted Ruth (third): Off a long lay-off, this mare is building into the prep well and arguably should've won here over the 1950m, which followed a fighting third on November 2. Held-up until the 200m before flashing home on the inside in restricted room, Exalted Ruth wasn't able to get that earlier momentum and has only been beaten around the length on the line.
Race 8 - Fulton Street (fifth). With no fresh form, not much was expected on return from this gelding, however, he's recorded a cracking return without luck. The seven-year-old looked to bolting in the run home, but couldn't get clear until the 100m, flashing home when it was all over. A dual second-up winner, he'll go close next start in a similar grade, preferably over a little further.
Race 1 - Vancouver's Crown (seventh): We saw a really nice colt build through his gears via a lead-up trial at Warwick Farm and over the 900m on debut, was never afforded the luxury when taken to the rails and proceeded to race quite greenly on debut. While the winner covered ground, he was in clean air, something Vancouver's Crown wasn't afforded. Suspect he'll be the biggest improver from this.
Race 2 - Cisco Bay (fifth). Looked well placed back to BM78 grade off a freshen-up and while the breaks didn't come from an inside draw, 2kg claimer Brock Ryan rode him a treat, hunting Cisco Bay up to eventually find the box-seat, but was a victim of circumstance in the straight when held-up for the entire run home. Has only been beaten 1.83 lengths, despite never seeing daylight.
Race 10 - Kinloch (fourth): Made this file last Saturday when recording the fastest last late splits and while he was suited with the rise to 1300m, this entire was up in grade to a BM88, while he was attempting to make ground from the rear on a program that favouring the on-speed runners. Certainly going well enough to pinch one, just think he needs to be placed softer with rating of only 70.
