Race 3 No.1. Golconda. Won like a champion during the spring and the Robbie Laing stable is on fire. Unless one of the unraced brigade is a star in the making, Golconda looks close to a good thing.
Race 5 No.3. Romancingthestone. Drops in weight from a dominant last start win and this race does not look much harder. She was not far behind Lord of the Sky at his first up start and that is some of the best three-year-old form in Australia.
Race 6 No.4. Anlon. Has won his last start and has an amazing turn of foot. Hopefully Caulfield is playing fair and the run on horses can make up ground. Be careful of Chase the Rainbow who might be a star and has run well recently, but all in all Anlon looks an each ways special.
Race 7 No.8. Quick Snitzel. One of the best of the day. Forget the last start where he was a stupid $1.60. This start he will be short but he should be at least $2.60. He will storm home and he might even settle a little closer than he did at his last start thus giving him more time to hit the front.
Race 1 No.3. Rubick. A boom two-year-old and they usually win. He is short but he might be very good.
Race 3 No.7. Tamariz. Won his last start by five lengths and although this is a step up in class, he looks very close to a good thing. He missed a run in the Magic Millions Stayers Cup and since then has trialled really nicely. He will lead and be very hard to run down. With Quick Snitzel as one of the best of the day.
Race 6 No.2. Travolta. If this horse had a nose that was just an inch longer he would have won his last two races. As it turned out he was beaten in both these runs, but he should win this race. He will lead, relax and should kick very strongly. The danger is the stablemate and other than that there does not seem to be many horses in the race that have a lot of improvement left in them.
