A competitive event for the grade but claims of KEEN SMEE cannot be ignored. She has won seven of her 18 starts at this track, placing on a further six occasions, and she has been running very well in recent months. Awesome Maddi C and Rise To The Top also make plenty of appeal.

A tricky event to close the card but the marginal preference is for COUNTRY FLAVOR following his win in a similar event over C&D a couple of weeks ago. Marshall and Woodford Pine are the best of the rest.
