1. Seek And Destroy

5yo stallion from Bristol Turks, Career earnings: $2,753,557
Overall rating: Excellent(61) – Stalker

Comments: The smart 5yo stallion Seek and Destroy, from the Bristol Turks stable, just failed to collar the winner in the Aussie Clothing Sprints two runs ago, although his two world cups have been over the sprints distances, we expect him to run another good race here.

3. One Time Looker

5yo mare from Sootie, Career earnings: $1,130,655
Overall rating: Excellent(61) – Competitive

Comments: One Time Looker, the winner of the Epona Cup last season, has been thereabouts in races recently, she has excuses as the trainer tried her over unfavorable ground, the stable hopes for a decent run.

4. Star Wales

5yo mare from junior’s farms, Career earnings: $2,351,363
Overall rating: Excellent(63) – Mud-lark

Comments: Top trainer junior’s farms sends out his 5yo mare, Star Wales by Godzilla, this mare should enjoy the slow ground and we expect her to run a cracker.

5yo stallion from Desert Wind Stables, Career earnings: $814,222
Overall rating: Grand(66) – Breakaway

Comments: The home-bred stallion Tropical Ice by Hawaii, from the Desert Wind Stables is in top nick, has good experience over distance and ground, he certainly is in with a big shout to bring some silverware back home to Osaka Bay.

7. Firefly Glow

5yo mare from Moonlight Stables, Career earnings: $909,876
Overall rating: Admirable(56) – Competitive

Comments: Moonlight Stables brings Firefly Glow to the track, she will need to improve a few lengths to trouble the front runners.

8. Get Round

5yo mare from Mandingo’s, Career earnings: $1,939,517
Overall rating: Reasonable(51) – Fast finisher

Comments: Get Round has been a good earner for the stable, she ran her heat on Sunday, and should enjoy the day out.

9. Gs Arena

5yo stallion from BODRUMLUCK, Career earnings: $1,437,165
Overall rating: Excellent(64) – Mud-lark

Comments: GS Arena has only been defeated once, he has plenty in his favor, perhaps the racing gods will play ball, to give the stable his first world cup.

10. Golden Years

5yo stallion from daddy coulls, Career earnings: $1,320,003
Overall rating: Excellent(61) – Mud-lark

Comments: Daddy Coulls comes out of semi-retirement and he sends out the well bred stallion Golden Years by Reds Dragoon to the track, he jumps from gate#10, will be running on at them late, and is a must for all bets.
