WHAT THE KEY PLAYERS ARE SAYING:

“He’s a good fresh horse and he’s been trialling super. He’ll need a little bit of luck in running but he’s a quality horse.” – Russian Revolution’s co-trainer Paul Snowden

“Obviously you’ve got to be going well to win an Oakleigh Plate but I don’t think he could be showing us much more on the track than what he is.” – Bon’s Away’s trainer Aaron Purcell

“She was underdone first-up and has improved significantly since.” – Snitty Kitty’s trainer Henry Dwyer

“I think we’ve got a couple of real live chances and a couple of handy chances in what is an open race.” – Mathew Ellerton’s co-trainer Simon Zahra
