The scratching of New South Wales galloper The Monstar who was going to be one the main chances in the Glasshouse Handicap has left Too Good To Refuse at the top of the market order at $6 at Ladbrokes.com.au.

Scone trainer Brett Cavanough has elected to start The Monstar at Rosehill on Saturday instead in the Listed $150,000 Civic Stakes (1350m) and the six year old will try to make it back to back wins in Sydney after scoring a last start all the way win in the Listed $150,000 June Stakes (1100m) at Randwick on June 10.

Too Good To Refuse is overdue for a win and has been knocking on the door of late with a nose second two starts back to Miss Gunpowder in the Listed $100,000 Makers Mark Hinkler Handicap (1200m) at Doomben on June 10 followed by another eye catching third to Burning Passion in the Group 3 $175,000 W.J. Healy Stakes (1200m) at Doomben on June 24.

Regular rider Robbie Fradd will be aboard Good Too To Refuse again after partnering him at his last two starts.

The Gold Coast trained sprinters Man Of His Word at $7.50 with Glen Colless to ride and The Virginian at $8 with Jim Byrne in the saddle are having a great battle for the second favourite position.


Colless will be taking over the reins from Jeff Lloyd who rode Man Of His Word into third place behind Religify and Payroll in the Listed $100,000 G.H. Mumm Quality (1615m) at Doomben.

Colless will need plenty of luck in the early stages to slot into a good position with the Bruce Hill trained four year old having to jump from barrier thirteen in the fourteen horse field.

The Toby Edmonds trained The Virginian will appreciate the long run in at the Sunshine Coast after making up plenty of ground from back in the field last start when seventh to Monsieur Gustave in the Listed $175,000 City Of Ipswich Eye Liner Stakes (1350m) at Ipswich on June 17.

Also under the $10 mark at $8.50 is Flamboyer who will be chasing back to back wins in the Glasshouse Handicap.

Flamboyer led all of the way to win the 2016 Glasshouse Handicap and the Kelly Doughty trained six year old has premiership winning jockey Jeff Lloyd in the saddle again.
