Placed once in four starts. Finished 2 1/2l behind Olin's Honor when fourth of 10 at 19-5 on her latest outing at Laurel Park over 7f in December last year. She is wearing blinkers for the first time and that could inspire improvement.

SACRED LADY has rattled the crossbar the last twice and could be the answer looking to go one better here. The consistent Beckon was third on that occasion and rates as the danger once again, while blinkers could help the useful Stiva.
