She produced a very good final workout and she is in great order heading into this race. The switch back to 1200m against the males in her last start was a good effort.

She is at her best when racing on the polytrack, but in this type of field the stable have opted to take their chances. The daughter of Oratorio is doing well at home and jumps from a handy draw of three. Joshwin Solomons is booked to ride and she should have an each way chance.

Winning Form Comment: Best MR:92. Moderate latest from a wide draw. May prefer the polytrack but don’t ignore.
