Stawell - Race 5 3.30pm AEDT
Scoliaro will return to the races at Stawell this afternoon and she does look to have a clear class edge over the rest of this field. Her form tapered off at the end of her last preparation, but she generally raced in much stronger company than this. She maps to get a lovely trail into this race and can make a winning return to the races.

The Archie Alexander stable has been absolutely flying over the past month and that can continue with Thanos this afternoon. He relished the step-up to 2000 metres to win at Murtoa last start and a repeat of that performance would make him very tough to beat. He makes his own luck right on the speed and he will be tough to get past late.

It has been a long time between wins for Gigi Girl, but she just her chance to breakthrough in what is a fairly weak race at Stawell this afternoon. She raced bravely last start after not having a great deal of luck in running and this is a genuine drop-in class. She may never have a better chance to record another race win.

Purrfect Trick has been building nicely this preparation and he looks set to peak third-up. He was only narrowly denied last start at Hamilton and if still has the scope to improve on that effort. If he is able to do that he will go to a level that no other horse in this field can match.
