Big return to form last start where he finished off nicely for third and will be better for that 2000m run. Very well placed here by the Michael Hickmott camp in that he's got two pretty decent weight swings on Column and Ace Attack from that race. Useful when right and looks open to more improvement than them two today.
Race 9, No. 2 HE'S OUR WOODY
Getting better than 20/1 about a galloper who was there to do very little first up but ran on fairly and has a terrific record at this trip. Is 2/2 second up, hasn't put in a bad run in 11 career starts and in a race with no standouts, he looks a big each way price in the get out stakes for those chasing a roughie.
