Track: Good 4, Rail: Out .5m, Weather: Fine


We can expect a genuine tempo in this race with leader Jungle Edge preferring to get out and running in his races. Burning Front and Hooked are both strong on speed runners and will be there to keep the Cranbourne trained mudlark honest.


Kingsford Smith Cup winner #1 CLEARLY INNOCENT has really paid for that WFA victory and his 111 rating in an ordinary G1 handicap at the weights here. Not only must he shoulder top weight in this race, he has to jump from gate 20 - not ideal no matter how dominant his last start win was. With those factors counting against him I'm inclined to take him on, especially as race favourite.

#4 COUNTERATTACK is still chasing that maiden G1 win but has been placed at the elite level at his last two runs. Interestingly, both of those runs have been on wet tracks and the horse's good form this campaign could be attributed to those conditions - will he be capable of producing the same level of performance on top of the ground?

#6 HOOKED can give some cheek in a ra...
