Race Tip

Multiple Group 3 placegetter HARD TO SAY (3) went forward and proved too strong last time out, scoring by a long neck over 5½f at Rosehill. Best figures measure up. Sure to run well. WHO DARES (16) did well to score by 0.8 lengths when resuming in a weaker race last start over 6f in the Vobis Gold Sprint at Caulfield. Fitter for that last hitout and is among the winning hopes again. Group 2 placegetter WALTZ ON BY (13) settled well back before making steady ground in the straight last start to finish seventh, beaten 4 lengths, over this journey in the G1 Robert Sangster Stakes at Morphettville. Should prove tough to hold out. Group 1 placegetter GENERAL BEAU (2) comes here off a last-start seventh, beaten 3 lengths, over 6f at Caulfield. Has a sound record here with two wins and four minor placings from eight starts. Should be involved in the finish.
