Verdict

This has the look of a wide-open race. Gold Griffin should be involved but needs to be excused a bad run last time while this distance might be a bit far for Atomic Blonde and Clarkson. However, it may pay to side with WESTERN DANCE who has shown a liking for this course and distance and is taken to confirm the placings after she had The Sash behind latest.
