Regulus is a winner of his past 4 starts and looks to have gone to another level since arriving in Qld. The gelded son of Christian Cullen lands the perfect gate as he looks to secure the the 2nd Group 1 of his short career following on from his victory in the Redcliffe Sales Series Final. Last start he controlled the speed in front in what turned out to be a match race, when he sizzled home in an electric 26.5 seconds from the front. He looks too classy here and will be a very short quote.
Trained by Barb Barry, Ginger Micky has started just the 4 times in his career to date and shown good pregression. He has no luck from gate 11 in this final, but that will be countered by the fact that we get to see him chase in his races for the first time after all 4 career runs have been from the front. A winner at each of his past two starts, the latest victory was a solid effort when getting home by a 2m margin. He will be looking to get a cart into the race and has shown the ability required to finish in the money in this field.
A South Park Hanover gelding trained by Grant Dixon, the gelding scored a maiden breaking win two starts back at Albion Park when finishing strongly. Last start he was forced to work hard in the run and did plenty of work from a wide gate at Redcliffe. Fighting strongly to the line he was not beaten far behind MUCHO GUAPA. He lands a good barrier here and can look to settle close in the run to enhance his place claims.
The Mark Dux trained gelding has suffered an interuppted preparation that has produced success. A minor hicccup led to an enforced spell and he stepped out for the first time last week following the break. The gelding should take benefit from that run when he was buried on the pegs and was able to limit the work in the race and track home nicely. Two starts back he scored a late closing victory in the QBRED Breeders Classic when finishing strongly. He can enjoy a nice trail through in the early stages and looks a strong place proposition.
