RACE ANALYSIS

PATTERN: Travolta made pace in two lead-up races. Nothing changes for Gai Waterhouse’s only runner. Deane Martin will also go forward. Expect Kingdoms to settle closer than in Kingston Town Stakes now that he has a better barrier. Run-on horses will be Bagman, Opinion and Disclaimer

FANCIED RUNNERS: Not a lot went right for Spillway at Caulfield. Trying to force way into Cups. Disclaimer has come good for Snowden stable, winning Newcastle Gold Cup. Iggi Pop made two runs last week while Bagman ran on against tempo in Hill Stakes
