Snazz ‘N’ Charm has been placed at his only two race starts and will find this a lot easier than his last start third at Listed level over 1400m at Eagle Farm. Gobsmacked was sent out as the favourite for her debut win at Rockhampton and has earned her chance in the city.

BenchMark 75 Handicap (2000m)

Ilwendo is fitter for two runs from a spell and will find this slightly easier than his last start fifth over 2000m at Randwick two weeks ago and will be hard to beat. Our Mantra is stepping up to Saturday class chasing a hat trick after midweek wins at Doomben (2040m) and Eagle Farm (1800m) and has to be in the mix again. Mewstone Rock made up ground from the back when third over 1600m at the Sunshine Coast last Saturday and Constantine was also doing his best work at the end of 1500m at Eagle Farm.

Open Handicap (1200m)

Amanaat has a perfect two from two record over this course and distance and looks hard to beat again coming off a last start second in the Group 3 W J Healy Stakes (1200m) at Eagle Farm. Whypeeo ran his best race this campaign two starts back when second at Listed level at Eagle Farm over 1200m but then raced on the pace before fading into tenth place in the Healy Stakes but will find this a bit easier. Divine Dice has been kept up to the mark with a Deagon barrier trial win and Of The Day has been well beaten at her recent outings but is a three times winner over the Doomben 1200m course.

Tokoriki Lad ran his best race this campaign with a last start fifth over 1400m at Eagle Farm and further improvement puts him right in this.
