RACE 6 (10) OSBORNE BULLS: The odds aren’t flash for a horse untested in black type company but this rising star has had Group winner written all over him for some time. He’s won six of his nine starts and fair to say that record would read even better after luckless placings in his other three starts including his last start second over 1400m at Randwick when he came from an awkward position with big closing sectionals to be beaten only a head. The big Scone track should allow him to make his own luck from his soft inside draw.

RACE 7 (10) DYSLEXIC: Always hard to put a measure on how much improvement a lightly-raced filly can make from one start to the next but if this quality prospect can go on with it from her last start second at Randwick she will take a power of beating under these conditions. Should have won the G3 JB Carr Stakes last time at her first 1400m attempt when she recovered from a mid-race check to be beaten only a nose by the classy Moss Trip. Doubt she has reached her ceiling just yet.

RACE 8 (11): SPENDING TO WIN: Looks a sound each-way play in an open race. Model of consistency in this distance range and will get a lot of on pace favours from good gate. Has weights in his favour from last meeting with Glenall and seems to go well for the girl riders.
