1. Hot Snitzel (Jockey: Hugh Bowman/Trainer: Gerald Ryan) Current Odds: $5.50

Hot Snitzel was an impressive winner of the Ken Russell Memorial at the Gold Coast before finishing third behind Free Wheeling in the Champagne Classic. Gerald Ryan has suggested he may be ridden back. One of the main players.

2. Show A Prince (Glen Colless/Liam Birchley) $12.00

Has won two of his four career starts but faces a massive step in class here. He lacked the dash to go with them at the end of the Champagne Classic which suggests the more fancied runners may have his measure. This will be the first time he races away from Doomben.

3. Benfica (Kerrin McEvoy/Peter Snowden) $3.10

Absolutely toyed with the opposition at his last start when he won the listed Hampden Stakes at Doomben. Kerrin McEvoy had the choice between this colt and Free Wheeling and chose this one. Has shown lovely temperament in his races so far, and looks the one to beat.

4. Free Wheeling (Corey Brown/Peter Snowden) $4.00

Improving type who last start won the Champagne Classic, which may turn out to be a key form race here. Finished behind Benfica in the only race where the two Darley horses met each other which is a slight concern. Has been the best backed runner since markets opened, and must be respected.

5. Double Impact (Shane Scriven/Jackie Crompton) $31.00

Was finishing off OK when he ran fourth behind Free Wheeling in the Champagne Classic while his second behind Hot Snitzel in the Ken Russell Memorial looks better on paper than it did on the day. Has been there or thereabouts but can’t seem to get past the big boys. Place chance.

6. Mahisara (Jim Byrne/Paul Messara) $9.50

This undefeated colt could be the X-Factor in the race. Hasn’t really been tested in either of his wins against lower opposition. He is a free-wheeling front runner, so if they let him get away he might be hard to catch. Watch the betting moves.

7. Largo Da Barra (Opie Bosson/John Sargent) $31.00

Kiwi colt who was an impressive winner at his first Australian start at the Sunshine Coast. Managed to run a pretty good time on the rain affected Sunshine Coast track when he won. Would be advantaged if it rained. One of only two horses in the race that has won over the 1400m.

8. Shanghai Bund (Luke Nolen/John Sargent) $14.00

Another of the Kiwi John Sargent’s entries. Hard to get a handle on the maiden form from New Zealand but he was finishing off OK when sixth in the Hampden Stakes behind Benfica. Will appreciate the bigger Eagle Farm track.

9. Flashy Fella (Chad Ormsby/Michael Moroney) $35.00

Another former Kiwi who has made his way over for a crack at the BRC Sires Produce. Was unable to get within two lengths of the winner last time out in a Gold Coast maiden. Hard to see him winning this.

10. Military Grace (Dwayne Dunn/Gillian Heinrich) $51.00

Enjoyed a successful build up to the Gold Coast Magic Millions by winning twice, including once at Eagle Farm which is a plus. Only beat two home in the Magic Millions and finished well down the track at its last start in the Champagne Classic behind Free Wheeling.

11. Playtime (Scott Seamer/Todd Austin) $31.00

Lost consecutive races at Toowoomba and Mackay which doesn’t read well for this but finished a surprising third behind Benfica in the Hampden Stakes.

12. Dowager Queen (James McDonald/Graham and Debbie Rogerson) $7.50

New Zealand filly who has won at 1400m and 1600m, which is a big advantage in these two year old races. It’s hard to get a line on the New Zealand form but you have to respect a Savabeel filly from the Rogerson yard.
