Read the reasons for our selections:
Randwick - Race 3 No. 1 Destination
A field of only seven have accepted for the Listed Crowley Stakes for the three-year-old's and it does look as a good a chance as Destination will get for a black-type victory with the Wild Ruler form from September 26 being franked strongly via the Group Three Roman Consul on October 10.
There's a fair argument to suggest that this Godolphin colt should've rolled the Snowden runner via that last start Heritage Stakes outing as he was briefly held-up in the run home and has been kept ticking over with a strong October 19 trial at Hawkesbury.
Moonee Valley - Race 6 No. 6 Young Wether
Young Werther looks the best bet of the day, where he would be odds on had he had more luck in the Super Impose Stakes last start. He ran second but that run held so much merit, looking as if he wanted the 2040m which he will get in this race. Mighty hard to toss in the Derby as well.
Doomben - Race 8 No. 12 Spaceboy
After developing a reputation as a non-winner, the Gary Portelli trained gelding has strung three consecutive wins together to stamp himself as a promising sprinter to follow.
Tested against some of the countries smartest juveniles as a two-year-old, the Deep Field four-year-old finally shook his maiden tag at start number ten, and has since gone on to win three of his next five starts.
His latest victory came at Kensington when defeating the inform Witherspoon and Black Magnum who has since franked the form and followed that with a very sharp trial behind subsequent first-up winner Blazing Miss.
Drawn to land in the lead from barrier three, Spaceboy gains the services of Stephanie Thornton and buoyed by the chances of rain, will look to run his opposition off their legs.
Randwick - Race 8 No. 5 Hilo
It's well and truly D-day on Saturday for Hilo who has been knocking on the door in both efforts the preparation and has a key gear change with the blinkers now going back on which provided the desired result the first time they were applied prior to his second start.
He recorded a race fastest last 600m of 33.37 when set an impossible task on October 3 and narrowly missed on the line after rattling home from the rear. This isn't a bad field by any means but the son of Lonhro is expected to peak now.
Moonee Valley - Race 10 No. 8 La Mexicana
La Mexicana boasts a stack of ability as she showed last start when winning at Cranbourne on a soft track by four lengths. Being wide this late might not be the the worst thing and at $5, she looks a fantastic bet to close the card.
