MURRAY’S PARTNERS (11.45) can overcome his wide draw with the benefit of top rider Zac Purton in the saddle. He’s running at an impressive 33% winners over the past fortnight.

He is wisely dropping in distance here after tiring in the closing stages last time.

He was right in the firing line until the final furlong and has dropped down the weights far enough to make him a contender.

METHANE (12.45) can be a bit gassy but he has blinkers on for the first time which should help him settle.

He had plenty in hand when scoring over course and distance a couple of runs ago before a solid second last time. Another good run is on the cards.

MEHBOOB (1.15) is a consistent performer who has been in the frame on each of his past seven outings.

Most of them came over this distance and he was just half a length off the pace here earlier this month. That man Purton stays on board which is another plus.

NABOO STAR (2.15) is best over this trip and has two wins and a second from his past three attempts over it.

He didn’t quite get home over slightly further last time but was still only a length off the pace.

The handicapper has left his mark alone which gives him every chance.
