Weather: overcast, track: Good4, rail: out 7 metres. No rain forecast. 


10:45 p.m. (NZ time) ~ 8:45 p.m. (Melb time) R7 10 Rubicon Crossing (3 f Rubick – Miss Foxwood) – Harry Coffey; she raced away to win when resuming in the Benchmark 64 1000 metres on 30 September at Mornington (Victoria), with Coffey aboard, and was dictated to when travelling wide from an outside gate (9) in a Benchmark 70 3YO 1000 metres here on 27 October. She finished second in both the Welcome Stakes (Listed, 1000m) and Wellesley Stakes (Listed, 1100m) last season, and is ideally drawn (3) to race well in the A$60,000 Benchmark 70 955 metres. NZ TAB fixed odds: $4.80 & $2.00. 

11:15 p.m. (NZ time) ~ 9:15 p.m. (Melb time) R8 2 Sans Doute (4 m Not A Single Doubt – My Prerogative) – Michael Dee; she resumed with a terrific run for a close second in the Benchmark 70 1000 metres here on 6 October, however wilted late after contesting a competitive pace in the Benchmark 70 1100 metres on 22 October at Seymour. She has drawn awkwardly (9) in the A$60,000 Benchmark 70 1000 metres, but should nonetheless race competitively if she is able to emulate her first-up performance here. NZ TAB fixed odds: $3.80 & $1.70.
