The next All Stars stable’s Aussie raid kicks-off at Menangle on Saturday night.
Exciting open-class prospect Cash N Flow looks a graded certainty in the opening race where he takes on some handy rivals, but not the best fast-class horses at the meeting.
It’s remarkable given Cash N Flow has won 10 of his 20 starts and both starts at Addington this campaign.
Throw in the fact it’s over the suitable 2300m trip and not even the outside draw (gate 11) should pose too many issues.
Team Tritton’s classy speedster My Alpha Rock (gate nine) and the talented Spare Me Days (10) look the major rivals.
At the same meeting, Team Tritton’s emerging stable star Gotta Go Ya Hu will be a dominant favourite from gate one in the Group 3 Mount Eden 4YO Stakes (1609m).
Gotta Go Ya Hu has stormed home from well back to win his past two open-class runs at Menangle, but has loads of gate speed and should lead and be hard to beat this week.

TODAY will see one of the most remarkable trials Melton has hosted.
With the Breeders Crown just around the corner, four of the best three-year-olds in Australia – Poster Boy, Ride High, Lumineer and Konan - will clash in the 12th trial at Melton.
Poster Boy is the best performed via his NSW Derby and Vicbred wins this season, but much interested will centre around last season’s Australian Gold winner Lumineer, who is returning from a long injury layoff.
Then, in trial 13, Miracle Mile runner-up Jilliby Kung Fu will lock horns with budding Grand Circuit star Shadow Sax and the classy My Kiwi Mate.
Other stars in action include: Australia’s best juvenile Centenario, star 2YO filly Kualoa, NSW Breeders Challenge 2YO winner Hardhitter and top shelf 4YO mare Speak No Evil.
