Moonee Valley - Race 3 No. 1 Ocean's Thirteen
Pretty keen on OCEAN'S THIRTEEN here with 3kg claimer Will Price in the saddle. He is now well in at the weights and with a natural front running pattern, from gate one he will find exactly that spot. A strong winner three-back, 1.6 lengths off of Sovereign Award two-back and then beaten by Tralee Rose who has subsequently won again last start.
Rosehill - Race 3 No. 5 Another One
ANOTHER ONE arguably should be unbeaten from his three starts as he was inconvenienced at a key stage on debut behind Lion's Roar, a galloper that won two at the Provincials this spring prior to a game second behind Montefilia in the Group One Spring Champion Stakes (dual city place-getter Mr Moppett has also come out of that April event at Wagga).
It was more the manner of his three and a half-length first-up victory on October 30 that was impressive as he didn't beat much in the way of opposition but the aforementioned prior form stands up and avoiding roadblocks in these Highways is half the battle, so he can at least stay out of trouble under Jason Collett from gate 12.
Moonee Valley - Race 5 No. 5 Nicolini Vito
NICOLINI VITO was simply too good for Ilovethegame last start, after being trapped wide for the entirety of the race and nailing that horse on the line. Since being gelded, he has come back a much more furnished galloper.
Doomben - Race 7 No. 11 Baller
It was hard to miss Baller’s return over 1110m first-up at Doomben and stepping out to 1200m second-up, he finds his chance to breakthrough.
Formerly with Anthony Cummings, the five-year-old gelding by High Chaparral made his stable debut for Chris Waller where he savaged the line late, running his last 600m in 32.90 seconds.
Often kept to 1000-1100m, there is little doubt 1200m has been Baller’s best trip, winning three of five starts over the distance with one of his missed including a fifth placing beaten less than two-lengths behind Deprive at Group 3 level.
Luke Dittman stays aboard Baller and from barrier 11, will stalk a strong tempo up front as the best bet of the day.
Rosehill - Race 8 No. 4 Snitz
Trainer Matthew Dunn has prepared 10 winners in November at a strike rate of 21% and he brings handy sprinter 4. SNITZ for this first-up tilt, a galloper that won his first two outings over the autumn and brings some excellent form lines from those performances.
After despatching a Benchmark 88 field fresh, this gelding was doing the donkey work in the Listed Takeover Target where after bringing the field up to a tearaway leader, still pulled out plenty to score. Snitz held off Greyworm there, who had defeated Trekking the start prior (won the Goodwood after that) and third-up, was close-up behind Classique Legend, arguably the world's best sprinter. That'll do me here off a very good trial.
