The W.J Adams Stakes looks a perfect race on paper for Snitty Kitty, who resumes her preparation. 
 
Worked keenly during the week over 800m, clocking 52.96 and 23.83 last 400m. Winner of 2 from 3 first up and this class will really suit her as a stepping stone to bigger things.
 
The Purcell camp will venture to Adelaide with Lite'n In My veins, where he'll step up to 1600m in the Schweppes Hcp. He's ready for the 
rise in distance and on his recent efforts, should be very hard to hold out of the finish. Tuesday morning he worked over 1000m in 1.12.66 and 25.04 last 400m.
 
The Henry Dwyer trained Eureka Street looks ready to break through and gets his chance in the Schnitz Stayers Final, 2040m Friday night under 
lights at Moonee Valley. Restricted to treadmill work this week, he's got sufficient mileage in his legs to run it out.
Calendar Lad can also run a race at odds and can't be faulted fitness wise.
 
You'd never put your house on Bint El Bedu for the win, however she's a pretty reliable conveyance on an each way basis. She's been in work 
a while now and holding her condition very well and is definitely a live hope on her home track in the Robert Hunter Hcp, 2400m. Soft work 
Tuesday, 1600m in 1.57.49 and 26.17 last 400m. Ditto for Dornier who went 1600m, home 38.99 last 600m.
 
Making If Not Now When, the value e/w runner of the day,in the Ladbrokes Hcp, 1100m. Tuesday morning's gallop was over 800m in 53.49 and 25.81 last 400m. Should be plenty of pace up front to suit her racing style.
 
Sheriff John Stone is well placed and weighted in the John Moule Hcp, 1400m. 2nd attempt at 1400m, he's a ball of muscle and as honest as they come. Tuesday morning he worked 800m in 54.20 and 25.10 last 400m.
