Race Tip

Multiple Group 3 placegetter HARD TO SAY (5) showed good pace and went on to score by a long neck last time out over 5½f at Rosehill. Meeting a tougher field but on his best form he is one of the chief contenders. Multiple Group 3 winner PARISAL (4) scored by half a length when resuming last start in the LR Hawkesbury Gold Rush over this distance. Has never been out of the money in four starts at this trip, including four wins. Leading contender. Group 3 winner SPACEWALK (3) turned in a solid fresh performance last start when a minor placegetter over 5½f in the LR Hawkesbury Gold Rush, beaten 2.25 lengths. Solid winning chance in this line up. XTRAVAGANT STAR (12) turned in an eye-catching run over this journey last time, settling out the back before winding up late to finish 2.75 lengths away in fifth in the LR Hawkesbury Gold Rush. Among the chances and will be tough to stop.
