RACE 6 (9) WAKING MOMENT: Let her backers down last start when well tried over 2000m at Rosehill but can excuse that effort when third up and perhaps ridden too close on a heavy track. Returns to her own sex and happy to rate her chances on her previous placing in the wet at Rosehill when second to Toryjoy over 1800m when having only her second start for Chris Waller. The big plus is getting 6kg and more off her main rivals.

RACE 8 (7) CYBER INTERVENTION: Has had a strong prep for this distance with two eye catching placings over 1300m and 1500m followed by a strong placing in a 1200m trial last week that will have him ready to peak under his favoured soft track condition. Rates highly on his wins over 1600m and 2000m at Randwick and Rosehill in his last campaign. Ideally placed to add to his record as he is the perfect type for this course and distance in this class.

RACE 9 (11) THE PARTY GIRL: Has been in excellent form in five runs since joining the David Pfeiffer stable for a win, two seconds and two fourths. Arguably could have won her last two with little going right for her when second on affected tracks over this trip at Warwick Farm and Randwick, especially last time when beaten by Bangkok after being held up for clear running well into the straight. Well placed on the limit under similar conditions.

RANDWICK: Gumshoe (R4), Improvement (R5), Milk Man (R7) and Cyber Intervention (R8)

KEMBLA GRANGE: Charles Seven (R1), Galaxial (R1), Steel Diamond (R1), Tears Are Falling (R1), Twice As Special (R2), Camp Rifle (R3), Pahang (R3) and De Valera (R8).

Twice As Special  (Rosehill 19 July): This was a hidden gem from an unraced Testa Rossa filly. She was slow into stride and settled a clear last and then took another 400m to settle after getting up on the bit. From the turn her rider Jason Collett angled her between runners to get some clear running and from there she really took the eye making ground easily under a strong hold, running through the line with style to finish fifth behind the very quick winner Galaxial in the fastest time of the session (54.58; 35.00). Keep an eye on her when produced.
