Werribee - Race 5 2:50pm AEDT

No. 5 Allyrock

Allyrock runs fitter for her past two attempts after finding the line nicely for third at Bairnsdale a few weeks ago. 

The lightly-raced six-year-old hit the front at the top of the straight and was only grabbed late by a progressive type over the final 100m. 

She should run another huge race up on the speed and have no problem finding the front from the low gate.

No. 8 Silver Waves

Silver Waves is a progressive four-year-old that can keep on winning. 

The Maher and Eustace-trained mare fought on well to score narrowly at Kyneton last time we saw her, driving hard from midfield to win by a nose. 

She’s drawn to get the gun run with the claim also put to good use, and given her late speed, she could finish over the top of most of these.

No. 4 Keats

Keats looks set to peak here third-up in the Cup. 

He came off third-best to stablemate Just Folk in a Group 3 at Caulfield last week, but I still still thought he fought on well to the line when given every chance in the run home.. 

His previous effort at Sale was just as sharp, and he gets in quite well at the weights here with Linda Meech aboard. Proven third-up and drawn well, this looks the right race.

No. 2 He's Handsome

He’s Handsome almost picks himself here. 

The Moody-trained gelding was third a couple of weeks ago behind smart Kiwi import Jimmystar at Cranbourne, making this step back in class more than ideal as he looks to make amends. 

His previous win at Ballarat was full of merit, and if he gets a bit of luck from the sticky draw, he should be winning.
