Expecting some genuine speed here with the likes of Zaaki, Hinged, Think It Over, Major Beel, Navajo Peak, Lindermann all expected to be up on speed. I expect Zaaki to set the tempo with one of the wider drawn runners to sit up alongside. King Colarado, whos been 18-8 in betting, should enjoy a nice run on the rails in behind the speed. Fangirl will be out the back with a lot to do over the short trip.

Zaaki will be able to do his own thing out in front first-up over a suitable trip. He has run the best ratings over the field over 1400m first-up on soft ground. He has trialed well for return and expect him to be hard to beat. Suited by the tempo.
1. Think It Over
0.5u at $11on Playup
Has produced good figures in similar race set-ups in the past (first-up over similar trips). Enjoys a great run-in transit here and has trialed well for return. Price is attractive.
17. King Colarado
On Bet365 at $8.50
Only his fourth start and has been thrown into the deep end. Plenty upside will enjoy a nice run-in transit and is more suited to this trip than others. Strong backing so far adds confidence.
