Cultural Mandate ran well to finish runner-up at a big price last time, putting up a solid speed figure in the process. Her penultimate effort is also better than it looks as she went off a touch too hard in front. She ought to have enough early toe to clear her main rivals from an outside draw, and will prove tough to catch. Mardi Gras Girl and My Cotton Candy looks the obvious dangers.
This is an interesting maiden claimer, with preference for second-time starter Liam’s Lookout. Her debut run is worth upgrading markedly, as she set a pressured pace in front before fading out of things.
The drop in class should see her carry that speed further, and she can come out on top ahead of another promising sort in the shape of Simple Story.
The Tabulator was boasting some strong figures when last seen back in the summer/early autumn and can pick up where he left off after a break. Trainer Larry Rivelli has strong numbers with horses returning from layoffs, so the fact The Tabulator hasn’t been seen in a while is of little concern.
Fast Pass is sure to be popular off a fair run in Grade 3 company last time, but that should ensure a little more value about our selection.
