Verdict

Better can surely be expected from Cash Broker who was heavily backed prior to her debut here recently. However, FREAK NASTY FLYER shaped with more promise on his respective introduction and he might be the safer option at this stage. The newcomer Poker Fever Gal is also respected.

Mariah's Galaxy wasn't beaten far into third last time and should go close again while Actif Storm and Salute My Lady are both respected on the class drop. However, OUR GOLDEN GIRL took a big step forward when breaking her duck in good style easily recently and she could be one to follow.

Verdict

None of these five can be confidently ruled out but the most solid claims are held by ANOTHER PINOT who has been knocking very hard on the door of late and should find this a suitable opportunity. Impressive recent victor Sibling War and Vivacious V. V. might be the ones to chase the selection home.

Southern Flavor and Courtney's Gift have both shown enough of late to be of interest while Recreational Use would hold obvious claims if back to his best. However, JUDGE DIXON has been knocking hard on the door of late and he looks the most solid option.
