Jimmy The Rich writes that Hollywoodbets-sponsored trainer Gavin Smith saddles Global Drummer in Race 7.

He was given a peach of a ride when winning the Non-Black Type November Stakes last time.

He set the pace, found another kick at the right time and kept going well to hold all challengers at bay.

He is unbeaten from five starts on this course and unbeaten from two runs under 2.5kgs claiming apprentice Yuzae Ramzan.

The son of Global View is the best weighted runner in this contest and may be hard to peg back.

Princess Of Fire from the Jacques Strydom takes her place in Race 4. She showed some signs of a form return over 1900m against male company last time.

The daughter of Louis The King is unbeaten from three starts over this course and distance.

She drops in class this afternoon and with a bit of luck from the widest draw, she may find herself in the winner’s enclosure.
