She is currently in full possession of her means and in current shape could complete a quick double for this jockey-trainer combination. Inconsistent (10) AMANDA remains capable at this level but hard to predict. She could challenge for race honors if reproducing her best form which can also be said of (6) MAKALIA. Both (7) AMETHYST who has been holding her form lately and recently improved (5) SANTI DEL MARE could play minor roles.

Caught the eye last time out and should be competitive on that evidence

Rozanne historical data/form

Tricky. (14) ROZANNE ran better than her finishing position last time suggests and under bottom weight from a better draw is unlikely to go off at 40/1 again. With a little luck in running she could turn the tables on several re-opposing rivals at a price. (13) RIBOT DREAM filled the runner-up berth for a fourth consecutive start when he fared better than the selection and (5) SPOTTED CAT last time out - he wouldn't be winning out of turn. (11) PAPELAINE is closely matched with those rivals on that form and her chances must also be respected.

(7) QUEEN OF THE SUN and (8) CONICSTRIP haven't been far off the mark of late and could complete the minors.

(3) DARK ROAD scored over this course and distance last time out and a resultant 2kg penalty may not be enough to prevent him from following up. (2) JACKSON EN BOIS finished 8th behind the selection on that occasion and franked that form by winning next time out. He could make his presence felt if building on his last-start success. (5) PEAKY BLYNDER has a wide draw to overcome but is weighted to pose a threat to the selection on 2kg better terms having finished little over a length off last time. Good race!
