Drawn ideally in barrier two with Eddie Wilkinson to ride the Falvelon five-year-old has won their last three straight at their home track at the Gold Coast, the last two over 1400-metres by a collective 7.8 lengths.
Other gallopers coming off some nice lead-up form include the Kelly Schweida-trained What Happenedhenry with Larry Cassidy to ride, Brian Wakefield’s General Nediym six-year-old Joint Chiefs last seen running third in the Group 2 QTC Cup (1300m) at Eagle Farm on June 2, and the Kelso Wood-trained QTC Cup runner-up Belltone.
Other notable hopefuls include the Rob Heathcote-trained duo of Gundy Son and Funtantes drawn nicely in barriers one and three respectively, Jeffrey Caught’s promising four-year-old Falino, and the Con Karakatsanis-trained Riva De Lago who has drawn wide in barrier 16 as the look to bounce back from their 11th in the QTC Cup run on a Heavy (10) track.
