RACE 4 (6) Multaja : Talented filly is in rare form with impressive wins at last two starts, carrying 60kg to score over 1100m at this course in the heavy before swamping a big field in the G3 PJ Bell over 1200m at Randwick. Meets the older mares this time but she will enjoy a kind run sitting on the back of the pace in this smaller field and the long Hawkesbury straight will give her ample opportunity to run down her main dangers.
RACE 7 (2) Military Zone: Big winner of the Gosford Guineas when second-up in December and set for a repeat performance after solid first-up effort over 1200m at that track on April 10 when he was left with too much to do from the back half on a day that favoured the leaders. Had been trialling in great style leading into that race and no doubt he will appreciate the extra 200m of this event under a favourable weight scale.
RACE 9 (9) Signore Fox : Suited by this class and distance after taking on the Listed South Pacific Classic (1400m) on a soft track at Randwick on April 13 where his effort to be beaten only 1.5 lengths had considerable merit (hampered early/raced deep) after he was beaten only a half-length in heavy going by Echo Jet when second up over 1200m at Warwick Farm under 60kg. Meets that horse 4.5kg better with the return to a good track and the booking of James McDonald from an ideal gate big factors in his favour.
