She is returning from a 21-week break and takes her place in a 1000m contest. She returns to her favourite course where she has notched up both her career victories. She is in a good space heading into this contest, but may just be in need of the run.

She overraced in her last start over 1200m and trainer Mike de Kock has opted to drop her back to 1000m. She is in a good space and with the services of Warren Kennedy, she should be in the firing line.

Winning Form Comment: 3rd run after rest. Best MR:79. Fair latest despite overracing. Better this distance and must have a say.
