"...will take all the beating..."

Timeform on The Harrovian

#1 The Harrovian - Cairns R8 (07:08 BST)

The Harrovian hasn't raced since April when he extended his winning sequence to six by scoring over this distance. A terrific galloper who is unbeaten in seven visits to this circuit, and has a 50 per cent strike rate fresh, so will take all the beating. Only Wanna Sing and Langhro can fight it out for minor honours.

#5 North Afrika - Cairns R9 (07:48 BST)

North Afrika is in sparkling form having won his last four starts, the latest when cruising home by over three lengths at this track. Had plenty on his rivals last time and the low draw suits his style of racing. Tough to beat. Kuttamurra Al didn't miss by much when placed in the Townsville Cup over 2000m last time and has two wins and a placing from three tries at this distance, while Paniagua also arrives in good form.

#9 Pleasure Bomb - Cairns R10 (08:25 BST)

Pleasure Bomb ran on strongly and got there on the line when scoring over 1609m at Townsville last time and looks to have a strong chance again. Crocodile Shoes finished well last time and will appreciate the extra 100m now, while Emshalky is another to consider.
