One of the main dangers is the Michael Freedman-trained Ponca, who won her debut at Gosford in her last race.
The 3-year-old made her way to the finish line, completing one of the fastest final 400m splits of the entire race, with all key indicators suggesting she could improve again. She is in top health and the extra distance suits her.
Just A Jedi is ready to win this one after an honest campaign and he has a chance to score a drop in the benchmark 72 New TAB App Handicap (2400m).
The mount had an excuse that it was not suitable for the race at the start last time, and was blocked at a critical stage on the straight, which hindered the momentum.
He could bounce back on his return to Warwick Farm, where he has an excellent record, and his regular jockey, Brenton Avdulla, will be on the mend again.
Mist Of Battle is a knockout opportunity that enhances that preparation through tournament experience.
the best choice: Marillier (R7 No.11)
next best: Silentsar (R2 No.4)
Best value: Just a Jedi and Mist of Battle (R5 Nos. 4 and 14)
