RACE 5 (19) SUPERNOVA: It’s all upside for this impressive import, who has raced just twice in Australia and looks more than capable of making the big jump to Group company dropping 6.5kg off his last start 1900m restricted win in the heavy ground at Rosehill when he powered to the line under 59.5kg. Should eat up this trip under his light weight as he was placed at 2800m and won twice up to 2400m from just five starts in the UK. It appears his astute stable have timed his preparation for the Sydney Cup to a nicety.

RACE 7 (5) CHAPADA: Produced the best trial for the Derby with his third over 2000m in the Rosehill Guineas behind The Autumn Sun and stablemate Arrogant, making ground strongly over the last 200m from the back half after being held up on the turn. He’s a real staying type who answered the stamina question in the spring with his unlucky third in the Victoria Derby over 2500m and it’s obvious he has been prepared to be at his peak for this classic.

RACE 8 (3) SANTA ANA LANE: This is a tremendous sprint showdown that will be run at a cracking pace, setting it up for this big finisher providing there is no bias against the backmarkers. He is clearly favoured by the wfa conditions and swing in the weights from the Newmarket Handicap that sees him 4kg and 2.5kg better off against Sunlight and Osborne Bulls, not forgetting that he got home over the top of Shoals, Redzel and Trapeze Artist when they met at wfa in the Premiere Stakes over this course and distance last spring before he floundered in very heavy ground in the Everest. He’s a real Randwick horse, more than competent in soft going and his super trial at this track last week sets him up perfectly to add yet another G1 win to his record.

RANDWICK March 29 (Heat 3 - 1045m): This was the best of the open heats with Lindsay Park’s G1 winner VEGA MAGIC turning on the speed from the start to lead throughout. I saw him first hand in an exhibition gallop at Albury the previous week and the improvement in his coat and overall condition was noticeable. Behind him SANTA ANA LANE (4th) could not be missed as he motored home from the rear with a very quick closing sectional while OSBORNE BULLS (7th) went through the motions without being asked for a serious effort.
