Dryden perfectly placed to pitch in with another win

But she looks to have finally recaptured the form that had her competing in group company as a two- and three-year-old before the grind set in.

Perfect Pitch produced her best run since that Highway win charging home to beat all bar the winner at Warwick Farm in a BM 72 two runs back before again working home under a big weight in another Highway more than three weeks ago.

She looks set to peak at Moruya, dropping 4kg from that run, although lightly raced five-year-old stablemate and last-start federal winner Gunga Din is the one to beat, with top country rider Blaike McDougall booked to steer.

The local charge will be led by Xmas Cup winner Whisky’n’diamonds, who has a terrific record on firm tracks, and seven-year-old Hay Bale, who conversely would prefer it wetter.

Earlier, the toughest name to call in racing can sing her own tune fifth-up in a Maiden Plate (1425m) at set weights.

Boomahnoomoonah, a progressive three-year-old daughter of Golden Slipper winner Vancouver, is primed to break through after surging home to miss narrowly in her last couple.

The filly is drawn to park just off the speed under visiting metropolitan jockey Tommy Berry. She can dash early in the straight, and get the better of likely leader Stays On Tour before holding off the finishing burst of Philipsburg, having only his second run in more than a year.
