Plenty with claims in this with SMART MONEY one of the more obvious. He's found only one too good in both starts this season, handles the testing conditions and gets another chance here. Tolkeins Tango is a course and distance winner but on fast ground while Ray Diamond, Bedouin Bay and Storm Alert have all been placed at this track recently. Toowoomba should be winning before long judged on his recent efforts and The Rattler Obrien went close to following up a win at Wetherby when beaten only a length at Taunton last month.
