Horse: Destiny’s Kiss
Message: (Saturday, Randwick Race 4, City Tattersalls Club Cup) A wet track, 2400m at Randwick is perfect for him. He missed a trial at Hawkesbury on Monday but the stable tried to make up for it with a gallop on Thursday. You never underestimate him.

Horse: Cosmologist
Message: (Saturday, Randwick Race 4, City Tattersalls Club Cup) A very nice horse. The 2400m will be the last thing that will get him beaten. You don’t get many horses that you’re confident about over extra ground but you watch him work and race and he shows one tempo. He’s able to build that speed and he loves the wet.

Horse: Arraignment
Message: (Saturday, Randwick Race 5, Kogaroo Hcp) The stable has been pleased with what he’s been able to do on tracks when maybe he’s better on top of the ground which he certainly won’t be on Saturday.

Horse: Fiftreen Rounds
Message: (Saturday, Rosehill Race 6, Brian Crowley Stakes) He’s a very nice horse, he hasn’t had the blinkers on in a race yet and they are a pretty big ace up the sleeve.

Horse: Pecans
Message: (Saturday, Randwick Race 7, The Nivison) She’s probably not a mare that you want to take a lot of notice of her trials. First up on heavy tracks is never ideal but, with all respect to the opposition, it doesn’t seem as strong as years gone by.

Horse: Passage Of Time
Message: (Saturday, Randwick Race 8, ClubsNSW Hcp) There were some issues with his feet and the stable certainly wasn’t happy with what he was doing last preparation. He likes a wet track and is a noted first-up performer but he has to find his old form.

Horse: Time To Reign
: (Saturday, Randwick Race 1, Forum Group Kirkham Plate) On debut. He has done everything right so far and is ready to go. Ben Melham was very happy with the way he won his trial the other day and Rachel King has been booked for Saturday. He does enough to suggest he will be all right on Saturday.

Horse: Ronstar
: (Saturday, Randwick Race 6, Brian Crowley Stakes) Ronstar could be saved for another day if the track is heavy on Saturday, but the stable would like to give him the chance to earn his way to Melbourne. After he won that first trial, he has shown that he doesn’t like it wet, as was obvious in his second barrier trial. If he runs and wins then he could have a shot at the Coolmore Stud Stakes down the straight.

Horse: Don’t Give A Damn
Message: (Saturday, Randwick Race 9, Jem Computer Systems Hcp) He’ll certainly run if the track’s in the slow range but any worse than that he won’t run. He just struggled to get through the ground in the Kosciuszko being such a big striding horse. He’s taken the stable by surprise how well he’s come through that run on the heavy track as he’s eaten very well, he’s very bright in himself.

Horse: She Knows
Message: (Saturday, Caulfield Race 3, Caulfield Sprint) She Knows was in contention for a Kosciuszko slot but the stable opted to save her for Caulfield where she will tackle stakes grade over her pet distance of 1000 metres. She deserves her chance. She’s been very consistent. Corey Brown will be aboard She Knows.

Horse: Youngstar
Message: (Saturday, Caulfield Race 8, Caulfield Cup) The Winx form is the best form line in the country and that the Turnbull Stakes run was the perfect lead up for Youngstar heading towards the 2400m off the Caulfield Cup. Obviously running second behind Winx is good in every race, but when it’s your semi-final run into your grand final, it was a perfect run, showing that she’s up to the class and will be better suited to the handicap on Saturday. There are no negative signs.
