None of those with experience make any appeal on their form to date. Nelson's Pride and Stoney Quine are the best of them and likely to improve from their modest debut efforts but the newcomers look above average for this level. Fair Flutter and Our Gabrial represent Richard Fahey and the latter is related to smart sprinter Charles The Great. Mark Johnston also runs two and even though Brownsville is a half-brother to a Grade 2 winner in North America, a speculative vote goes to stablemate and 120,000 dollars purchase EMAAD to make a winning debut.
