Rosehill Race 1 Tip #3 Girls Are Ready $8.00
The Joe Cleary trained galloper impressed as a two-year-old, winning twice in town before heading to the Gold Coast for the Magic Millions.
Those two city wins came at Canterbury and Warwick Farm and both on Heavy tracks, which she's likely to see on Saturday.
Her two runs in the Autumn were lacklustre, but she looks to have come back bigger and better off a 153-day spell.
Drawn poorly at her first-up run this prep, the mare was forced to sit back in the field. From there, she was the only runner to make up ground as she ran into third on the Canberra synthetic.
She drops 2kg from that run, has drawn much better this time around in barrier six and will relish the rain affected surface.
Money talks all languages and she's been well backed from $11 into $8 in early markets.
Looks the one with the most upside.

Belmont Race 5 Tip #5 Great Again $3.20
Great Again impressed in winning the Listed Newmarket over the Belmont 1200m.
The son of Viscount led all the way to beat Rebel King by 2 lengths.
He carries an extra 4kg for this, but he's going too well to not be on top here.
A Belmont track specialist with seven wins from nine starts, he's well suited here and will relish the rain affected conditions.

Warracknabeal Race 3 Tip #3 Power of Mandala? $4.00
This galloper went into my black book after showing ability in the jump outs.
After doing some work on debut, he was in front for a long time before being run down late.
His second start failure was a forgive run on a choppy track and the stable was quick to send him out for a spell.
His two runs this preparation suggest he has come back very well.
Now third-up with fitness on his side, he can be ridden forward from the wide barrier and should prove hard to beat.
Rosehill Race 7 Tip #6 Maddi Rocks $2.90
The girl caught my eye at a Warwick Farm trial, travelling under her own steam to run through the line well.
She produced a big sprint at her first-up run, but found one better in a star of the future, Pandemic.
If she can reproduce that powerful finish second-up, she'll be winning this.

Rosehill Race 9 Tip #9 God Of Thunder $2.90
Team Hawkes were unlucky with this four-year-old gelding when first-up.
He dived on the line and just missed on that occasion, and he will love the step up in trip here.
He’s one from one at the track and distance and has won on all surfaces, so the rain affected track won’t bother him.
Brenton Avdulla sticks and he should be flying home over the final stages.
Caulfield Race 6 Tip #1 Ball Of Muscle $4.20
He beat Redzel first-up last prep and has won his last two fresh runs. His trials into this have been enormous, winning both with ease.
Considering he’s such a consistent performer who gives himself every chance from out in front, I think he will take some catching here.
