The Coolmore Classic (G1) has drawn 17 females going 7 ½ furlongs around the right-hand course of Rosehill. The horses drawn wide will have to expose their hand early the inside posts will be caught in traffic unless they are hard used into the turn.

Dear Demi had sensational form last year against males with a second in the Mackinnon Stakes (G1) going ten furlongs then had no shot in the Melbourne Cup (G1) from post 5 and was buried in traffic. She won her barrier trial at the end of February then rallied for third from post 12 in a group three stakes at Warwick Farm behind the odds-on favorite, Catkins. Daughter of Dehere is out of a dam that won the Golden Slipper Stakes (G1), draws well tonight and gets a major rider switch to Damien Oliver.

Lucky 7’s strategy: $7 to win on Dear Demi and $7 exactas with A Time for Julia and Hana’s Goal over Dear Demi.

Pari-Mutuel wagering strategy: Dear Demi across the board and a trifecta box with her, A Time for Julia, Hana’s Goal and Catkins.

The Ranvet Stakes (G1) is a weight-for-age stakes that makes the top two choices very tough since they are both used to carrying this weight. Fiorente won the Melbourne Cup for Gai Waterhouse then came back last out at this distance and won the Australian Cup (G1) two weeks ago as the odds-on favorite. I loved It’s a Dundeel last year and his form in Sidney was especially strong winning the Rosehill and Randwick Guineas (G1). He was a good second in the Chipping Norton Stakes (G1) two weeks ago going a mile and should be able to step up in trip with no problem.

I give It’s a Dundeel an edge over Fiorente with his proven class over the track and should improve a ton off his last start. Still not much value with these two so I’ll key It’s a Dundeel over Fiorente and Silent Achiever.

Lucky 7’s strategy: $7 exacta It’s a Dundeel over Fiorente and Silent Achiever. $7 exacta Silent Achiever over It’s a Dundeel.

Pari-Mutuel wagering strategy: trifecta box wheel It’s a Dundeel over Fiorente and Silent Achiever.
