Feels like yet another Sydney winter Stakes raffle, but don't mind the placement from Joe Pride with 8. THREEOOD who hasn't been knocked around by a big autumn campaign, so she may be the one here with a bit of upside. The return was good despite being cricket score odds in Brisbane and while there's a gap between runs, the June 11 trial was excellent.
We've seen plenty of 5. Wandabaa over the autumn and winter, a mare that deserves a black-type win and she would've got that victory first-up with more intent. Relishes the wet tracks and is perhaps looking for the 1200m now?
9. Fender won his first two autumn starts in Brisbane and certainly had excuses third-up when racing three-wide throughout in the BRC Sprint. Still yet to win past 1300m, which is the knock, but he is a more effective galloper on soft/heavy ground.
7. Sambro hasn't won since the stone age, but he's consistently thereabouts while this looks a Chris Waller set play off a hard run mile fresh and now back to 1400m. He's one for the exotics at a longer quote ($21.00 @ Sportsbet).
