ENTRIVIERE is the one to beat. She was excellent first-up at Kembla then okay second-up. The gate is not ideal but I map her getting in. She’ll be hard to beat.

FORBIDDEN LOVE should get a good run from the draw is and good enough on her day. Overs.

ICEBATH has been okay in four runs back this prep, but is rating a level below her best. Her best, in fact, is on wet ground. If it poured down (it’s not predicted to rain) I would have her much shorter.

VANGELIC had a complete forgive run last time when knocked out of the race by a fallen runner. She showed very good form prior and can win here.

MADAM ROUGE had no luck last start. She’s fitter for a couple of runs back and can improve here. A chance at a price

NUDGE was okay resuming. She’s a strong finisher who may not be suited by the pattern here, but if they can win from the back she’ll be in it.

MADAM LEGEND is a very consistent mare who perhaps lacks the top level figure to go with some of these, but she’s very genuine and won’t be far away.

SWEET DEAL was okay resuming, and at her top she is more than good enough. The map doesn’t suit though.

TRICKY GAL made up good ground resuming. It’s been a while since she won but she produced some good figures last prep. Well drawn, but she’ll still likely be back.
