Incredible (OCALA FARMS) only had time for one juvenile run, a maiden which he duly won by 7L. Has had a busy three year old campaign notching up four wins and a track record over 2m fast. However chances have been compromised as he carries a double penalty in the final.
Zirconium (BIGBOYSTEVE) has been admirably consistent and the fact that he will be 4LB better in for a head beating by Incredible is a clear indicator of his chances here.
Kings Empire (NEMESIS STUD) has only had the minimum two runs so hard to see where he is at in the pecking order but cost a fair bit and has clearly been laid out to take this final.
Xmas Holidays (KDS) has been a bit hit and miss but did run 2L second to Zirconium 2M good.
Ten Ten (ANFIELD ROAD) has run okay but certainly better over shorter.
Chelsie Demand (Sumner Farms) has never tackled a trip this far and does need to improve. Emmas Halo looks sure to be outclassed.
Manzie (BLACK CAT RACING) is relatively lightly raced for a 3yo so there may be some improvement to come and will not need a lot to be thereabouts.
ANALYSIS: Zirconium looks a big threat but KINGS EMPIRE is taken to rule the land.
ODDS: KINGS EMPIRE 3/1 Fav, Zirconium 4/1, Incredible 5/1, Manzie 7/1, Xmas Holiday 8/1, Ten Ten 10/1, Chelsie Demand 20/1, Emmas Halo 33/1
