It is expected the Peter Snowdenyard is set for a big Derby day at Flemington.
The Darley trainer has the boss Sheikh Mohammed in town to see his thoroughbreds strut their stuff.
And the rain that Melbourne has received is only helping the situation.
In race one, Carbine Club Stakes, Galah is being back off the map early morning and will start long odds on.
He has superior form and with Highly Recommended is the only runner to be proven on wet ground.
Sepoy in the Coolmore Stud Stakes has remained short all week at around $1.30 and the rain won’t affect his hopes at all – Hot Snitzel doesn’t mind the sting out and looks a danger.
Induna in the Victoria Derby has won both races on dead tracks, the condition of the track today – his class is the worry – but he is shaping well.
Dysphonia in the Myer Classic likes it wet. She defeated Sepoy in a workout during the week so all is good there.
And Launay is sweet in the wet. It contests the Tab.com.au Stakes. She goes into the race defeated at Flemington or second up.
Perhaps Rarefied in he Salinger Stakes is the worse of the Snowden runners if the track gets too wet.
