The Ciaron Maher trained Ruby Sea is going through her classes nicely and looks well placed in the Rivette Series Final, 1600m, against her own age and sex. 3rd up and won't have any issue at the trip, looks to have more scope than most of these. Tuesday morning she worked over 800m in 51.97 and 24.04 last 400m.

This should suit Special Diva a lot better second up and against the gals. She worked with Summer Glen over 1200m in 1.25.67 and 23.97 last 400m.
Huge Weight drop for Duke Of Wellington in the CRV Cup Trophy, 2000m. Down 5kg to 54kg and has M Dee on his back. Prepared to forgive him on his last run. Worked on the treadmill during the week, he'll strip fit for this assignment.

Hot Ruby, flying and fit as a fiddle. 2000m not an issue. Worked 1000m in 1.12.47 and 24.0 last 400m.
Reports out of the Maher stable from Warnambool are excellent on Schism's progress since scoring effortlessly last start here. Remains at 1400m in the Leilani Series Final for the 4yo mares and upwards and looks a leading contender once again.
Liberty Song is well overdue, however, it's not going to be a walk in the park for him in the A.R Creswick Series Final, 1200m, Listed. Maintaining condiiton well and thriving in work. Breezed over 800m in 51.80 and 23.95 last 400m. Each way.
Expect Ability will run a cracking race again when he steps out in the Victorian Sprint Series Final, 1200m. Solid gallop during the week over 800m, clocking 53.25 and 24.51 last 400m.

Duke Of Brunswick resumes. Under a tight hold Tuesday morning when clocked over 800m in 52.41 and 24.98 last 400m. Excellent work and should sprint well fresh.
Hard Call steps out 3rd up and will start over the odds in the VRC Final, 1600m. Close up both runs in and was under a nice grip Tuesday morning, working over 1400m, home last 400m a tick on 24s.

Same can be said for Typhoon Jolie, she'll start way overs. Her work was solid, striding over 1200m in 1.18 and home last 400m in 23.75. Wetter the better.

I'd say Lone Eagle was "close" to a good thing beaten last start up the straight at Flemington. Never had a clear crack at them and still only finished 2.3L off Royal Phoenix and I believe he'll turn the tables on him this time out in the Schweppes Hcp, 1200m. Worked on Tuesday morning over 800m with Borella in evens, home last 400m in a very slick 22.89. Trained on a treat and should go close here.

Pure Emotion has come on nicely since her last start win. Worked 1000m in 1.10.59, last 400m in 23.25.

The Mick Price trained Savvy Dresser has been around the money this time in and although he rises in grade, he does drop down to 54 1/2 kg and has the services of D.Oliver. Wasn't out to break records Tuesday morning, working over 1600m in evens, last 400m in 25.61. He's spot on fitness wise and rates as some sort of each way hope here in the Dream Thoroughbreds Hcp, 2000m.

Windbern is as fit as can be for this, she worked over 1600m, home last 600m in 36.57 and 23.32 last 400m.

If Not Now When is the fitter of the Caulfield trained aspirants lining up in the Sheamus Mills Hcp, 1100m. Didn't have things go her way last start when boxed in and out late, hitting the line hard. Trained on a treat and no reason she can't run well here. Tuesday she worked over 800m in 53.21 and 24.34 last 400m.

Run Gypsy Run is 3rd up, partnered with Princess Of Queens (resuming) over 800m, clocking 56.90 and 23.61 last 400m.

Snipping Revolving Door of his "crown jewels" didn't do him any harm going by his solid win 1st up over Liberty Song at Moonee Valley. Worked super during the week on his home track over 1000m, stopping the clock at 1.05.06, last 400m split of 22.80. Looks a genuine chance in the Securecorp Hcp, 1400m.

Enigman is 3rd up and well placed here with only 54kg on his back. Worked over 800m in 52.30 and 23.56 last 400m. Drawn well and also expected to figure prominently.

Act Of Valour is flying for the Henry Dwyer stable and C Williams will be desperate to guide him home as he fights to take out the jockey's championship for the season. Reports are good coming out of the stable. His work was solid during the week, breezed over 800m in 53.24 and 24.12 last 400m.

Divine Mr Artie resumes. He worked over 800m in 53.02 and 24.52 last 400m.

Evergreen 7yo gelding Onpicalo is racing as well as he ever has and steps up to 1800m in the Quayclean Hcp, a trip he's yet to taste success with in 2 attempts to date. Maintenance gallop on Tuesday morning over 1200m in evens, home last 400m in 23.52. He's fit and holding his condition well this time in.

Overberg would have to rate as a leading contender if he can gain a run. Clocked working his last 1000m with Kapset in 1.05.58 and 23.42 last 400m, which was excellent work on the morning.
