Doomben - Race 6 3:12pm AEST

No. 2 Stroll

This looks a very suitable race for Stroll to kick off her campaign. 

The Snitzel filly has taken on much tougher races than this during her short career, running sixth in a Group 3 on the Gold Coast during the winter before going on to win a Stakes race at Eagle Farm. 

She appeared in good order at the trials a couple of weeks ago and maps to get a lovely run off the speed. 

Cranbourne - Race 7 3:20pm AEST

No. 11 Belle Plaisir

Belle Plaisir is a much better chance in the Cranbourne Cup than her current price suggests. 

The Proisir mare hit the line hard two runs back in The Invitation at Randwick and was beaten only 2.5 lengths in the Empire Rose Stakes at Flemington two weeks ago. She’s won three times over the mile and placed on as many occasions, while there’s also plenty to like about her wet-track form. 

The blinkers come off for the first time and she should enjoy a nice patient ride under Craig Williams.

Newcastle - Race 8 3:40pm AEST

No. 3 Eleven Eleven

Eleven Eleven is capable of winning The Hunter at a nice price. 

The wet track didn’t suit first-up in the Manikato Stakes at The Valley, but he’s typically done some of his best racing second-up in the past. 

He’ll need a touch of luck from a tricky gate, but getting back on top of the ground should see him improve. He’s also run some strong races over 1300m and there’s certainly no knock on Tommy Berry’s recent form. 

Doomben - Race 8 4:32pm AEST

No. 4 Garibaldi

Garibaldi is deserving of his status as favourite in the Keith Noud. The son of I Am Invincible returns from a freshen-up after running home strongly for third in a Stakes race at Toowoomba earlier in September. 

He won his trial last week quite well and has also found the money in seven starts here at Doomben. 

With plenty of early speed on offer, Ryan Maloney should be able to settle back and save his best for late.
