Read the reasons for our selections below:
Rosehill - Race 5 No. 5 Edison
The only query with 5. EDISON is just how much work he'll have to do to cross early as otherwise, this well-bred four-year-old looks perfectly placed bringing that Through The Cracks form (twice) to a weaker Benchmark 88 where he should be about ready to peak now third-up from a spell.
By Fastnet Rock and out of a daughter of Group One winning mare Unearthly (who produced Invest; an Australasian Oaks winner), Edison has won his last two third-up attempts and was only reeled in late at Newcastle after making a strong gallop up front. With projected improvement off that, he looks awfully hard to beat here.
Doomben - Race 5 No. 5 Shooting For Gold
After finishing his first preparation with two wins and two seconds, Shooting For Gold looks primed first-up from barrier four.
A narrow second on debut at the Gold Coast, the Steven O'Dea and Mathew Hoysted trained gelding was extremely impressive thrashing his opposition at Doomben at his next start before going down to Mishani Miss third-up.
Finishing his first preparation with another easy win at the Gold Coast, the three-year-old son of Shooting To Win was given a three month freshen before trialling extremely well at Doomben over 840m, charging through the line under a strong hold.
Drawn to land in a terrific spot from barrier four, Justin Huxtable continues his great association with Shooting For Gold and is one of the best bets of the day.
Pakenham - Race 6 No. 5 Sirius Suspect
SIRIUS SUSPECT looks one of two likely leaders in the race, and after such a positive run behind Exhilirates and The Astrologist first-up, his form reads superior in this contest. His second-up stats are fantastic, winning twice and yet to miss the top three from four goes. Has strong claims as the best bet on the card.
Rosehill - Race 9 No. 10 Dunbrody Power
Whilst she was still competitive last campaign, 10. DUNBRODY POWER has returned to her best this preparation and third-up now off an enormous effort at Kembla Grange, this five-year-old appeals as the best each-way chance on Saturday's Rosehill card.
The 1100m was as short as she wanted it first-up but class got her there just in time and stepping out to the 1200m on November 21, picked herself up after enduring a tough run to still savage the line over the concluding stages. Drops two kilos coming out of mares' grade but I'm not convinced this is all that much harder and she's drawn to pounce late under Bowman.
Doomben - Race 9 No. 7 Isotope
If you backed Isotope first-up you could be forgiven for putting a hole in the wall next to you after she was given no hope when missing the start by three-lengths.
Falling out to the back of the field, the Tony Gollan trained three-year-old filly charged home over the concluding stages, narrowly going down to Goldsborough despite missing the start.
A star juvenile boasting form around Rothfire and Wild Ruler, the daughter of Deep Field gains the services of Ryan Maloney and barrier one on Saturday where she can land on the speed.
Stepping out second-up off a trial win at Beaudesert, Isotope looks incredibly hard to beat as the best bet of the day.
