Verdict

JUST KYLIE is the obvious starting point in a weak race following her neck second over 6 1/2f at Delta Downs and a press of the replay button should suffice. Schuyler Sister is a threat if forgiven her last outing, while Custom For Corales hinted at a return to form when runner-up latest.

A tricky finale could go the way of PRINCESS DELORES, who was placed in a more valuable contest last time out and will find this easier. Chickoree also has his sights lowered and is respected, likewise newcomers For The Father and Forewarned Storm.
