BOLTONOVA had market support and was slow into stride and then sent forward in a rush to find the lead when beaten 3.5 lengths behind Percidian over 1100m at Gawler. The drop back to 900m looks ideal and he’ll give a sight.

BOMBISCUIT was beaten 2.9 lengths here on debut behind Santastico in September last year and then beaten 5.35 lengths at Dunkeld. She was OK in a Casterton trial and must be respected.

The drop back to 900m is ideal. GRASSMERE DIAMOND was 4th in that Edenhope race before he won a Casterton maiden when he led throughout to beat Ma Belle Grise. She’s speedy and will give a sight.
