RACE 2 (1,400M)
2 WINE TALES (4:2-2-0): Always handy before scoring lg hd win (53.5) over Good Project 1,350m R'hill 3yo Plate Oct 25. Smart Sydney filly and the form around her looks strong. Can figure here.
4 SEA SPRAY (5:2-2-0): Just lasted for hd win (58.5) over Azkadellia 1,400m C'field Yellowglen Plte Oct 18. Emerging filly who looks very competitive here.

5 PROTECTIONIST (9:4-3-1): Made it two in a row with 1½-len win (60.0) over Fly With Me 3,000m Fr Deauville Prix Kergorlay slow trk Aug 24. Lightly-raced German stayer who caught the eye in the Herbert Power at Caulfield and that run will have topped him off nicely for this. He's a winner over 3,000m on a heavy track, so the trip won't be a worry.

2 STIPULATE (24:3-6-5): Had trouble getting clear when 4-len 12th (54.0) to Admire Rakti 2,400m Caulfield Cup Oct 18. His Turnbull run was super. Take beating.
