Best Bet Of The Day: Race 4, No 7. Transporter 5yo g. (Commands x Portrait Collector, by Sir Tristram), trained by John Thompson. A winner at Listed level two starts back, he was run down late last start over the 1800m of the Group Two Hollindale Cup by Lights Of Heaven and Forteller who will both be hard to beat on the same card at Group One level. Appears to be improving with age and then drop to 1600m should suit – a distance he has had four wins and two second placed efforts from seven starts

Best On Breeding: Race 5, No 5. Gondokoro 3yo f. (Zabeel x Kisumu, by Carnegie), trained by Pat Carey. Bred to be a stayer, this filly is a full-sister to Group One winner Zabeelionaire who lines up in the group One Doomben Cup on the same day. Was a last start third in the Group One ATC Australian Oaks, two lengths behind Dear Demi who is also in the race and will prove very hard to beat. Is a filly on the way up, and trainer Pat Carey knows how to ready them for their main goals, which may be this race, or next start in the Group One Queensland Oaks.
