Jockey: Craig Williams Barrier: 12 O
Pros: Still the best performed galloper in the race and won fresh here in the PB Lawrence last prep. Recent trial was sound and we all know how good his best is.
Cons: Wasn't his customary self aside from the first up win in the spring and he's not getting any younger. His best could very well be past him.
Verdict: Still have to heavily respect him.
2. BLACK HEART BART
Jockey: Brad Rawiller Barrier: 3 O
Pros: Complete forgive run in the Kingston Town and his previous form was still very sound. Loves the Caulfield 1400m, draws for a gun run and by all reports he's working well.
Cons: Looked to have lost that yard or so in in his last few preps either way you look at it. Can he recapture his best?
Verdict: Putting him in the same category as Hartnell. Can't underestimate the class gallopers.
3. TOSEN STARDOM
Jockey: Damien Lane Barrier: 14 O
