#2 MONEY TRAVELS – Gosford R5, 05:35 BST
MONEY TRAVELS showed a good attitude when second at Wyong last time out, has now placed in 5/8 starts, and finds a pretty shallow maiden here so looks the one they have to beat. Fearless Mila is in the mix first up from a 20-week spell, having showed early pace and boxed on gamely on both runs in her maiden campaign.. Dragon's Beauty was an eye-catcher last time, closing well to just miss out in a three-way go over 1000m at Muswellbrook.
#3 MANLY COVE – Gosford R6, 06:15 BST
MANLY COVE was very impressive when winning over this course and distance a fortnight ago, leading all the way and never looking in danger at any stage. He’s a lightly raced gelding open to further improvement although he won't get such an easy lead today. Moccasin Miss led and gave a great sight until ambushed a few strides from home last time out over 1200m at Warwick Farm. She has been kept fresh for this and has a very solid five furlong record, so looks sure to be thereabouts. Nostro Re justified betting support on debut when making all at Taree recently, and has to be respected although this will be a much sterner test.
#1 CONTINUATION – Gosford R7, 06:50 BST
CONTINUATION took the lead before the turn and kept going to record a huge win last time out over 2100m at this circuit. He’s a progressive three-year-old by the Cup winner Fiorente so should relish his first attempt at a true staying distance. The tough mare Exflytations improved to finish second last time out over 2300m at Muswellbrook, leading until the furlong then kicking back gamely to go under by a narrow margin, while The Boomerang was too keen last time, winding up well back over 2100m here. He was placed twice in row prior to that when allowed to roll along.
