Prompt Response (Beneteau/Prompt) four-year old bay mare. Prompt Response will head to Doomben on Saturday to contest the Group 1 Tatt's Tiara over 1350m with Blake Shinn booked to ride. She ran a sensational race first up last start in Group 2 company and has come on hugely since the run. There are a few dangers with good race fitness on their side but Prompt Response is spot on heading into the run and if she can improve on her performance last start, she will be right there in the finish on Saturday.

Penske will head to Flemington on Saturday to contest the David Bourke Provincial Plate over 1600m with Steve Baster booked to ride. He has come through his recent win in terrific order and rates the one to beat on Saturday over the mile. If he can settle in running he will be extremely hard to beat and we are very much looking forward to seeing him start.

JUST A JOKE (Race 1, 11:45am, 2330 meters, No. 2, jockey Mitchell Bell, 61kg)
Just A Joke (High Chaparral(IRE)/Fiction(NZ)) three- year old bay gelding.Just A Joke completed his final gallop in preparation for Saturday's race on Thursday morning with senior rider, Ed Fiddes in the saddle. Ed commented, "He feels really well in himself, I don't think his last run took anything out of him at all. He was focused throughout and strong to the line." The gelding's work has been faultless and the step up in trip, combined with the drop back in grade should very much be to his liking on Saturday. Don’t give up on this lightly raced son of High Chaparral.

DOSSIER (Race 2, 12:20pm, 1870 meters, No. 2, jockey Jeff Penza, 58kg)
Dossier (Sebring/Diana’s Secret) three-year old bay gelding. Dossier has pleased since his first up run and on Thursday morning he completed his final gallop in preparation for Saturday's race alongside his stablemate. The pair worked over 6 furlongs and a rain affected track and senior rider Johnny Livingstone commented, "I was pleased with that. He has a lovely long stride, he just needs ground." Well that is exactly what he will get on Saturday at Newcastle and we expect a much improved performance on his first up run.
