Clear Sailing ought to be more than capable of living up to her name this afternoon and looks one of the days better opportunities. Last time out she finished a very respectable fourth to Normanz in the Class A East Cape Sprint Cup, beaten three and a half lengths at the line, and dropping significantly in grade here she ought to get back to winning ways. She had won four of her previous five races so that effort was clearly no fluke and even top weight seems unlikely to stop Clear Sailing from adding another victory to her career tally here this afternoon.
He's A Keeper looks to have been found a suitable opportunity to get off the mark by trainer Alyson Wright and after a solid second over five furlongs last time out here this could be his big day. The added furlong this evening seems unlikely to be an inconvenience and the form of his three quarter length second to Sniper Shot has been franked by the winner who followed up in a Juvenile Plate, leaving He's A Keeper as both an improver and the clear form choice for jockey Anton Delpech.
Chlli Affair is becoming a shade frustrating with six places from his eight career starts, but the step up in trip this afternoon is expected to bring about the necessary improvement. Last time out the son of Western Winter was outpaced when a six and a half length fourth over the mile here but he has longer to get in to top gear this evening over this distance and as long as Anton Delpech can keep tabs on the early leaders then Chill Affair can power clear of them all late on up the home straight here.
