3 8-4 (ow 1)
49

A winner at 1m. Well beaten at 13-5 behind Shack's Harem when fourth of 5 on her latest outing at Thistledown over 1m last month. Likely to be better suited by this sort of contest.

All The Best historical data/form

TEAM HALO isn't often outside the first three and appears to be the most solid option in a contest where doubts linger over most of the market protagonists. All The Best and Jezabel's Charm might also make their presence felt.

Blitzie historical data/form

SEXY MORENA is more exposed than most, but she was a lifetime-best second ahead of Val's Distinction (10th) last time and should confirm that form at the very least. Ima Redhead is another to note.

SASSY ANGEL bounced back to form when landing the spoils at this venue three weeks ago and could be worth following while the iron is hot. Wakeeta and Critter might give the selection the most to think about.
