Verdict

Great Bam usually gives his running and is expected to finish on the premises but, for win purposes, the unexposed TILLO is preferred. The selection scored over the extended 6f here last time but showed enough speed to think this drop in trip would suit. Arctic Point looks the pick of the remainder.

Verdict

CLUB'S THUNDER notched in a $10,000 claimer by over nine lengths back in December and her new trainer Roger Brueggemann is beginning to get a real tune out of the filly. This represents a step up in class but she can follow up on a repeat, while Dubious and Santo Rio are others of interest.
