Whitsunday looks a likely runner under Amelia Denby jumping from barrier one with three-year-old Filly possibly left to fly the flag as the stablemate Snitzwah is an emergency and has drawn awkwardly in 13.

Whitsunday was last seen finishing fifth of 12/900 m at Scone when fresh and has drawn to do no work, up in journey here and has placed at the distance prior, and an improvement off the last start run would not surprise.

Race five will see Fanny Chanel return from a spell with Josh Oliver aboard the five-year-old mare jumping from barrier 7, to compete in a maiden over 1300 m.

Last time out she finished fifth of 12 at Dubbo, 24 weeks ago over 1400m and resumes with no barrier trial, she may need the run as her first-up form is not ideal.

She will likely race off the speed and you can never write her off after last preparation, as her worst result was a fifth from 5 starts.

Good luck to all connected at Coonamble on Monday.
