In one of the strongest fields assembled in recent years, class sprinter Terravista Horseformpresents an enticing betting opportunity following his impressive effort fresh.

Although riddled with niggles throughout his career, Terravista really impressed at Flemington first up and by all reports is back on track.


No question at his best Terravista certainly sets a decent standard and given the anticipated high pressure it should play right into his hands from the favourable draw.

While you have to respect Darley Classic winner Malaguerra Horseform, fact is Terravista returned stronger closing sectionals last start and the return to WFA certainly helps swing the race firmly in his favour.

When assessing Timeform ratings (average) over the past 12 months, Terravista holds a clear edge of Malaguerra and deserves to be installed outright favourite.

On what we have seen to this point, it's simple Terravista is a better performed horse.

As much as 5-2 is being offered about his chances which is a more than worthy gamble, as we have him marked the 2-1 favourite.

Hugh Bowman has had a remarkable record in Group 1 company over the past 18 months and is expected to add the Winterbottom to his tally on Saturday.

The Durrant and Miller trained Star Exhibit Horseform has returned in good order and while unable to win from three attempts this prep, he appears very well placed in the second event.

A winner of five of his 13 starts, Star Exhibit was only narrowly beaten at this C&D last start and with Pike linking back aboard he looks to set a decent standard.

When assessing Timeform weight adjusted ratings he possesses a clear edge and presents good value at his current quote.

We have marked closer to a 6/4 chance and he should prove very hard to beat from the inside draw.

As a side note, on Saturday TopBetta will host its Day 2 of the Ascot Carnival Tournament ($10K Total Prize Pool), with the nine race card being the sole focus. Click Here To Check It Out .
