In depth


Martha Mccandles has had an up-and-down career to date but there have been signs of ability and this is not a strong contest. Fouburg has been well supported in each of his four runs to date, including a Grade 2 in December, and should appreciate this easier task but Honcho was a 100/1 chance when third on his hurdling debut in a Perth claimer and What A Dandy did best on Polytrack on the level. BLUE SURF won four times on the Flat up to 1m4f and is rated 92. If he translates that ability to hurdles, he may have too much class for these.
