Last time out Willi Willi competed in a benchmark 78 handicap finishing six of 8/1400 m when ridden by Beau Mertens arriving 2.85 lengths off the winner, he rises in distance, with third up form showing 1 start, unplaced.

He has won on all surfaces and the step up in distance looks perfect.

Best of luck to all connected at Flemington on Saturday.
