No. 2 HONESTA returned with a lovely first-up run in the Surround Stakes at Randwick and she will strip fitter coming into this race today. She is a quality filly in the making and her record over 1600m is top class. I expect her to box seat from barrier three and she should be very strong at the business end of the race. No. 6 Asinara got too far back first up at Rosehill but I like the way she found the line for a horse that is wanting further. I think this filly is good enough to win a group race so she should be running a big race in this. No. 3 Single Gaze has been very consistent this prep and she should get a pretty easy time in front today but I am a bit concerned that she might not run out the distance. No. 5 Heartlings was OK last start in the Surround but she should be fitter now that she is third up and the step up in distance is a big plus.
Back Honesta to win
No. 9 UNEQUIVOCAL got back and ran on like a nice animal first up and she should be better now that she has had the run under her belt. This mare will appreciate the senior jockey on top today and there looks to be decent pace on paper so she should be storming home again. No. 12 Romney’s Choice didn't have the best of luck first up so I am happy to put a pen through that run because she is a nice filly who is going places. Barrier one is not ideal for her but Jay Ford is riding well and I think he should be able to get her to the outside so she can wind up and finish off strongly. No. 6 Danish Twist worked home well in a nice race first-up and her second-up form is good. She has drawn horribly today but Bowman is on top and he is more than capable of weaving some magic. No. 3 Orcym Sam looks to be a promising gelding. His record at this track is very good but he will need to do it the hard way today because he has drawn terribly in barrier 13. He should be out the back but if McEvoy can get him to relax throughout then he should be finishing off strongly.
Back Unequivocal to win and have something on Romney's Choice each way.
