RANDWICK – Greg Polson

ALL OUR ROADS – The former New Zealander All Our Roads impressed at his first Australian start for Chris Waller finishing just over a length from the winner Sir Plush at Randwick on Saturday. A Group II winner over a mile last preparation, All Our Roads had a chequered path in the straight and arguably should have finished a touch closer but there is little doubt his run ended short of line. All Our Roads will derive plenty of benefit from the outing and will be ready to go second-up. All Our Roads raced well on a good surface on Saturday but it is worth noting each of his six wins have been on soft ground so no concerns if there is any rain about. Hard to find a suitable race in Sydney at this time of year for a horse with a 97 benchmark rating and suggest his next start might be in Victoria. Chris Waller will place All Our Roads to advantage and will be hard to beat with the first-up run under his belt. Career statistics (21:6-5-1).

FLEMINGTON – Cameron Happ

SILENT SEDITION – This super consistent mare went to another level last time in winning the William Reid at Group I level and placing in the Coolmore Classic in Sydney over 1500m. She had support resuming on Saturday at Flemington but ended up having little chance the way the race played out. With the leader Keen Array controlling just an even speed at best, it was one of those races where they mostly finished where they landed in the run. She broke 33 seconds for the last 600 metres so she’s returned in good shape and it was her first run up the straight. With so many options for mares at this time of year, she can be competitive in anything they run her in on her way to the Group I Myer Classic for mares on Derby Day. Career statistics (18:6-6-3).

GOLD COAST – Graeme Carey

MERCURIAN – Was having his third run this preparation for Tony Gollan in a 0-70 Rating Handicap over 1400m and after beginning well couldn’t cross so Tiff Booker elected to push forward sitting three wide without cover to the home turn. He challenged strongly in the straight but was a sitting shot to those in better going on the inside and the late swooper All That Is. To his credit he fought on bravely for third only a length off the winner. He is no champion but rarely runs poorly and placed in similar company should be able to pick up a win in the near future. Career statistics (38:6-5-5).

REINCARNATE – Ex-James Cumming trained gelding that put the writing on the wall that another win is just around the corner when having just third run for Shawn Mathrick stable. In a race that was dominated by those up on the pace, this bloke had the audacity to come from a long way back, passing all but the winner when charging hard late. What’s more, this was his first look at the track over a trip slightly short of best clearly indicating he can only improve further again if brought back over to South Australia. Would love to see him over at least 1400m next start in a Benchmark 82, if so expect to see him winning. Career statistics (25:5-4-5).

BELMONT – Aaron Mills

RHI’S ROCKET – No prizes for finding this consistent gelding although a winner is a winner and he should break through very soon. Rhi's Rocket has gone close with minor placings in both starts since resuming and the imminent return to the tighter Ascot track - where two of his three victories has come - is likely to suit. The son of Hinchinbrook has only been with new trainer Lindsey Smith for those latest two starts so there's scope for a little more improvement once the stable figures out how to extract the very best from him. The benchmark sprint over 1100 metres on October 21 looks ideal. Career record (10:3-1-3).
