5/4
Hat-trick seeker who has gone up another 5lb for winning over C&D last time out but is in much better form than his only two rivals here and should be able to win a fourth race in five starts.

Couldn't build on a recent win when last of all at Warwick last time out. Down 2lb here but needs to put that last defeat a fair way behind him.

Useful at his best but has regressed over his past few starts and needs a revival after showing little on the Flat last time.

Betting

Forecast

Tara Bridge (5/4), Darebin (2/1), Big Jim (9/4)

Verdict

Though Big Jim won at Warwick two starts ago he still needs to bounce back after a poor showing last time, and the progressive TARA BRIDGE should prove too good for him. Seeking a hat-trick and a fourth win in his last five starts (he was a half-length second in the exception) he shouldn't have too many issues with a 5lb rise up the weights. Darebin would hold claims on his best form but has looked regressive of late.
