Places (1-2-3-4) from Barrier Draw

AGAINST THE GRAIN has finished third in his last three starts. It must be noted that the form of his last outing has been franked. He finished 1.25 lengths behind CRANK IT UP in his penultimate start. He is 1.5kgs better off at the weights today and there should not be much separating the pair in the run down to the line. CRANK IT UP has top consistent form lines to his credit. He has won twice, finished second once and third once from five starts on this course. Chase Maujean steps back into the saddle and the combination merit healthy respect. STORM COMMANDER finished 1.75 lengths behind OSCAR WILDE last time. He is 3kgs better off at the weights today and that should be enough for the tables to be turned. He jumps from pole position and must be included in all bets. OSCAR WILDE should have finished closer last time as he hung from the 200m mark. He has won once and finished third once from three starts on this course. If keeping on a straight line, he should run into the money.
