Show Mission responded nicely under Zac Purton to cut down Carry To Win to succeed last start over the Valley 1,000m and can handle the extra 200m. He's since had a quiet trial and can repeat. Raichu comes off a no-excuse C&D third to The Show but is an honest Valley sprinter and the blinkers could spark improvement. He's drawn to get every chance yet again and will go close. Perfect Choice had run well in two attempts at the Valley 1,000m this term prior to a respectable fifth latest from two AWT sprints. He's since trialled nicely under a hold but will need luck from his gate. Keep Going needs to defy an awkward gate but hasn't had conditions to suit in his past three runs after going close to winning his initial Class Five run over this course and Victor Wong Chun's claim will help. Expect a better run with the blinkers back on.
