Flemington - Race 2 No. 4 Proper Rogue
Arguably this gelding from Snitzel should be unbeaten, with a record of two wins and three second placings from five starts, with even luck in those defeats who should be five from five.
His from is rather deep, starting from his first starts in June last year, running a length second to multiple city winner Star Surprise.
He is already a Flemington straight track winner and stepping up to the 1200m from the 1000m last start looks so suitable.
He gets Damien Oliver in the saddle and should get a good steer from gate six.
With 56kg, there does not look too many dangers in the race, so he is a clear pick as the best bet of the day at Flemington.
Flemington - Race 3 No. 1 Alcyone
Had he come up even money, he would clearly be the best bet of the day, stepping up to the 1800m which looks suitable.
He was excellent in the Gibson Carmichael two weeks ago behind the smart Cherry Tortoni, beating home main rival in this race Johnny Get Angry.
He looks every bit of a Derby prospect and this 1800m will give us a true indication of whether he will be a stayer or have the brilliance over a middle distance.
Barrier five is a tick and with the right steer, he is the deserved short priced favourite.
61kg is a big ask, but he does look lengths better than his rivals, which should see him finish right over the top of them here.
Morphettville - Race 4 No. 4 Sign Of Ussuri
The powerful McEvoy & Vorster combination will be looking to bounce back with this talented three-year-old who was narrowly defeated last Saturday at Gawler as a $1.80 favourite.
Dropping back from a mile to 1500m was ultimately his undoing on that occasion via that tighter circuit which did follow two big victories and he's now attempting this 1950 metre trip for the first time.
The blinkers coming off will aid his chances in running out the extra distance and the manner in which he powered away to score over a mile two starts back suggests the journey shouldn't pose any problems.
Drawing for a soft run throughout from barrier three and has the galloper of this field with the most upside going forward, Sign Of Ussuri makes a strong case as the best bet at Morphettville this Saturday.
Ipswich - Race 5 No. 10 Wren's Day
The James Cummings-trained Godolphin galloper has seen more rain than Noah’s Ark since arriving to Australia, and looks primed to strike back on top of the ground.
He was a massive improver last start, charging home to finish on the heels of Soxagon, stopping the clock at 1-18.94 and 34.18 for the last 600m, identical to the Listed Spear Chief on the same day (1-18.42/34.48).
He has a strong record on Good ground with a win and two seconds, including a second placing to superstar stallion Cracksman in Europe.
Jumping from barrier three, Andrew Mallyon takes the ride where he is poised to stalk the leaders and record his second victory in Australia.
Randwick-Kensington - Race 8 No. 7 Strawb
Newcastle trainer Nathan Doyle has had an impressive year so far with 22 winners at a strike rate of 26% and brings his classiest galloper for a much deserved tilt at city level.
By Fastnet Rock and out of a half-sister to the eight time group one-winning champion More Joyous, Strawb has been a work in progress where barrier manners cost her via the only blemish in her last four outings at Scone last time in.
She's unbeaten from both starts this campaign and has been running slick time in the process with her July 4 romp signalling that they are starting to iron out her deficiencies.
This isn't the strongest Saturday assignment where most of her opposition are right at their mark and as the one seemingly still on the up, Strawb can continue her winning ways as the best bet at Randwick-Kensington.
