RACE 2 (7) SIRENS FURY: Progressive mare is ready to win at her third run since resuming following two eye-catching performances that have her set-up nicely for this class and distance. Had no luck when finishing off strongly first-up in the G3 Nivison (1200m) at Randwick and again was blocked and had to be eased before hitting the line strongly for fourth over this course and distance on November 4. Can only be fitter for those efforts and conditions should suit as she is accomplished on rain affected tracks.

RACE 5 (5) CABEZA DE VACA: Appeals as one of the most progressive types in the Waterhouse/Bott stable after resuming with a strong front-running win in slow going over 1400m at Randwick on October 28, beating his classy stablemate Supply And Demand. He’s on the path to the Villiers Stakes and significantly gets the blinkers back on for this race, having worn the gear in three impressive wins last preparation. He’s missed a place only once in 13 starters, he won his only previous start at Rosehill and has impressive form on rain affected ground. Ticks all the right boxes.

RACE 9 (9) TACTICAL ADVANTAGE: Blinkers have been applied, a big move after he looked unlucky to lose his first start for his new trainer Joe Pride when coming from last to finish third over 1000m on a slow track at Randwick on October 28. Steps up in grade but that is countered by a 5kg drop in weight backed up by his first class course and distance stats. The forecast also favours him with three of his five wins on affected tracks.


BLACKBOOKERS - Horses to follow at next three starts. Selected November 4

IT’S SOMEWHAT: Godolphin should be confident about his chances in Perth.

TAMASA Horseform: A lingering nightmare for his backers. Still trying to get a run.

GALLIC CHIEFTAIN Horseform: Negative ride gave him little chance. Stay with him.

MURAAQEB Horseform: Found the line hard. Close to a win.

CURDLED Horseform: Sure to benefit from sound first-up effort.

DREAMFORCE Horseform: Strong return. Took a fit horse to run him down.
