This race looks set to be dominated by Toikin and IGO FORGREATNESS but the nod goes to the latter because he came out on top when the pair met back in August. Shot Jak is the pick of the remainder.

Verdict

MISS MASERATI is a progressive filly who has won her last two starts in impressive fashion and she is the one to beat in this contest. That said, Flying Girl has to be given the utmost respect following her nine-length victory last month and Ventina has some solid form in this grade.

Better was expected of Shes Got The Luck last time and she is respected while Boston Mine could have better to offer now dropped in class. However, the more solid option looks to be GONE TO DIXIE who has finished second the last twice now.
