Stepped up to 1m2f last month when 22l last of 13; not really built on success in a fillies maiden plate four months ago at Turffontein Inside; even with blinkers now refitted not hard to turn elsewhere

Verdict

Brooklyn Bridge is an interesting runner although the long losing run is a concern but SAMOA is fancied for this. Fantasy Flower is capable of better than her rather disappointing latest effort, and Sabrina Fairchild should be thereabouts if reproducing latest form.
