1000m – Turf


Prompt Return

Resumes from long break. Not raced since February. Did win on debut in October last year so proven fresh and then won at this course and distance at second start. Began most recent campaign with a creditable 5th to Thurlow in G 3 Chairman's Stakes at this distance. Betting might provide a lead.


Real Good

Resumes from four months spell. Began last campaign with sound win in Sunshine Coast 1200m Listed Hamden Stakes in May. Placed at 1110m at Doomben on debut so both fresh runs have been sound.


Spill The Beans

Has two wins from four starts - both at 1100m on soft ground. Latest run was also sound, however, on good rated track when 0.8 lengths 2nd to Counterattack (with Hellbent 3rd) in Listed Crowley Stakes (1200m) at Randwick on 17 October.


American Star

Has good speed and boasts two wins and a nose 2nd from only three starts in South Australia. Both wins at this distance. Latest was all the way 4.3 lengths from Jest For The Road in Morphettville Parks 3YO BM 70 on 3 October.



Two wins at 1000m and 1050m and a last start 0.9 lengths 3rd to Miss Idyllic at Moonee Valley 1000m from only three starts on good rated tracks.



Won on debut at 1100m on Geelong synthetic track on 1 September. Then head 2nd to the smart Mr Individual over 1200m at Pakenham before 2 lengths 3rd to One For One in Flemington 1400m Listed Poseidon Stakes on 4 October. Back in distance but freshened up.



Sound effort last time behind two in-form horses when 3.25 lengths 3rd to Keen Array and Mawahibb in Moonee Valley 1200m 3YO on 2 October. Month between runs should suit coming back to 1000m here.



Has speed but this race looks too strong. Won his Maiden at 1100m at Murtoa before 3.1 lengths 5th to Smart Dart in much weaker Bairnsdale 1200m BM 64 on 19 October.


Divine Mr Artie

Up in class but was impressive Cranbourne 1000m 3YO Maiden winner by 2.75 lengths from Dandy Mandy on 16 October with Damien Oliver aboard and he rides again here. That was only third career start and first run since March.


Miss Gidget

Worked three wide on the speed and was badly hampered on the home turn when 14 lengths 9th to Lake Geneva in Moonee Valley 1200m Listed Crockett Stakes on 24 October. Must forgive that run which followed sound Seymour 1109m win on 22 September.


Invincible Heart

Led throughout to win Caulfield 1200m 3YO Fillies BM 78 at 1200m on 3 October. Then 3.5 lengths 6th to Serene Majesty in G 3 Thoroughbred Club Stakes (1200m) at Caulfield on 10 October when raced in worst part of track.



Three best runs of career have been on home track Mornington. Won 1200m BM 64 at that track on 29 September before 5.7 lengths 8th to Andrioli in Caulfield 1400m 3YO Fillies on 17 October. Back in trip likely to help but must improve sharply.



Just fair in two runs this season and unplaced in four runs since winning on debut at Bendigo 900m in December last year. Last start was 1.3 lengths 5th to Petite's Reward in Bendigo 1000m Fillies and Mares BM 70 on 1 October.
