Larry says, "The first leg of the Golden Horseshoe Series and while there may be some handy newcomers who are ready to fire at their respective debuts, the only two horses with race form under their belts - DRONE and GIANT KILLING - are the two to watch. Obviously DRONE impressed when winning on debut and the speedster will be hard to run down with race fitness under his belt. In saying that, GIANT KILLING ran on super late in that race to keep him honest and a 2kg pull in the weights can't hurt. The proverbial blanket goes over the likes of GOOD LUCK CHARM, JUPITER DRAGON, KING ZOUSTAR, MAKKEM LAD, MY BIG BOSS, PENNYWISE, STREETWISE and the filly SCOOBY DOOBY DOO who have all trialled well enough to consider with the market a very good guide. Betting Strategy - watch market on the newcomers but DRONE very hard to beat."

|Selections - 1, 3, 9|
|1||1||DRONE||G BOSS (12.8)||M CLEMENTS (13.6)||5||52||57.0||***||Speedster who won from go-to-whoa with heavy support on debut and hard to beat here.|
|2||ACE'S WILD||J POWELL (13.9)||S BAERTSCHIGER (11.6)||11||0||55.0||*||Draw a concern but OK at first Official Trial and could run into exotic calculations late.|
|3||3||GIANT KILLING||APP CC WONG (6.4)||H TAKAOKA (7.5)||8||0||55.0||***||Ran on very well on debut to keep Drone honest and gets a 2kg pull in the weights. Follow.|
|4||GOOD LUCK CHARM||V DURIC (17.6)||HW TAN (8.4)||12||0||55.0||**||Looked solid when winning Official trial and gets Duric but wide gate makes winning tough on debut.|
|5||JUPITER DRAGON||O PLACAIS (7.3)||H TAKAOKA (7.5)||2||0||55.0||**||Won Official Trial in slow time but gets the favours from gate 2 and pay to keep safe.|
|6||KING ZOUSTAR||C GRYLLS (5.2)||DL FREEDMAN (9.7)||1||0||55.0||**||Hit the line solidly at Official Trial and worth thought from gate 1.|
|7||MAESTRO||K A'ISISUHAIRI (8.7)||T KIESER (4.6)||3||0||55.0||*||Prefer to just watch on exposed poor trial form.|
|8||MAKKEM LAD||A COLLETT (N/A)||D LOGAN (N/A)||4||0||55.0||**||Looked like he knows a bit about the racing caper at the trials and should figure prominently from good gate.|
|9||MY BIG BOSS||D MOOR (4.6)||DL FREEDMAN (9.7)||6||0||55.0||**||Looked very solid when winning recent Official Trial and has to be considered in winning calculations.|
|10||PENNYWISE||N JUGLALL (11.1)||R LE GRANGE (12.7)||7||0||55.0||**||Had a typical Le Grange trial when hitting the line well and should figure in the mix.|
|11||STREETWISE||B VORSTER (12.3)||R LE GRANGE (12.7)||10||0||55.0||**||Finished with his stablemate, Pennywise, at Official trial and should run a solid debut.|
