Main Star is the only runner in the field that can be ruled out with any real confidence. A select but competitive claimer in which SPECTACULAR LADY gets the vote lining up on a hat-trick and debuting for a new stable. Sunrise Countessa, Ghetto Fabulous, Port Maria and Native Wahoo can all make their presence felt.

La Lova was impressive in winning her maiden last time but is up in class now and may find FLYING PHILLIP'S too strong as she's used to keeping better company than this. Dreaming Outloud makes some appeal boasting an unexposed profile.
