WHAT THE KEY PLAYERS ARE SAYING

“She’s getting out to a more suitable distance on Saturday. The 1500 metres will be perfect” – Arcadia Queen’s trainer Chris Waller

“He’s a very serious horse that’s continued to improve and I think he deserves the respect to be pretty close to her (Arcadia Queen) in the market” – Waller on Kolding

“I don’t think we’ve seen the best of him. This is his grand final. Tommy (Berry) knows the horse. He knows what he’s got underneath him. Hopefully he can get him in a nice spot” – Brutal’s co-trainer Michael Hawkes

“I’m going there seeing her as a winning chance. She’s got a nice barrier so she should get a decent run and she will be in the finish” – Mizzy’s trainer Anthony Cummings

“She’s had a perfect prep for mine to run this trip out. But it’s scary because her opposition is so good” – Fasika’s trainer Joe Pride

“I’d imagine with the fact that he’s in gate seven he’ll go forward because there’s no point in losing (ground). We think we have him spot on” – Never No More’s travelling foreman Andrew Murphy

“Hopefully he’ll run a good race. We just want him to run respectable and put up a good show. If he can cover his costs, we’d be happy” – Beat Le Bon’s travelling foreman Wayne Kavanagh

“He obviously hasn’t raced against horses this side of the world, but going on his home form he should be thereabouts” – I Am Superman’s travelling foreman John Bailey
