Barnaby: Imported colt who was blocked by High Court at his last start. The use of blinkers has not helped. In the spelling paddock.
Hanson One Nation: Attracting support in recent starts, gaining a dream run as Turnbull shifted to the right in the home straight. No.
ASX200: Slowly regaining form having been knocked down by GFC. Watch for market moves, but probably looking for longer.
Housing Bubble: One of the favoured runners, but past its peak. Will attract plenty of support. A proven stayer.
Xenophon: Eligible for easier races having failed to live up to expectations. Prefer others.
Greens: Won the Bong Bong Cup is record slow time. Failed to make any ground after running in wrong direction in the Group One Economic Policy Cup. A win would surprise.
Abbott: Lost on protest to Turnbull having followed a similar path to Rudd when in the lead. Might be at long odds for this, but still a definite threat.
Australia’s Economy: Hampered by Reserve Bank when poised to challenge in the World Best Plate. Not the worst.
Uncertainty: Even with erratic form, this gelding has a habit of popping up when least expected. Include in multiples.
Your Money: Dropped out last in the race won by Global Crisis. Bought into contention by Housing Bubble and ASX200. Keep safe.
Rudd: Had the run of the race but ran off at the turn on the PM Handicap in 2010, caused interference to the eventually winner. Capable of better.
Itchy Leg: Scratched.
