WHAT THE KEY PLAYERS ARE SAYING:

“If he has any luck from the barrier he’ll scare the living daylights out of it. But whether we get luck from the barrier is another thing” – Happy Clapper’s trainer Pat Webster

“He’s drawn a nice gate to have a nice run in the race so I think he’ll start to show up from Saturday” – Grunt’s trainer Mick Price.

“He’s the fittest he’s been this campaign and his work on Tuesday morning reflected that” – Kementari’s trainer James Cummings

“He’s going all right. He ran fourth in the Group One over 1400 the other day at Hastings which was a bit sharp for him but it was his first start since the Caulfield Cup” – Jon Snow’s co-trainer Murray Baker

“He’s a seven-year-old by Authorized and if he was coming out from Europe everyone would be excited about him” – Alan Mathews, trainer of Pounamu
