Was on the premises (runner-up, beaten 3l) in a fillies handicap latest (over 1m here); handicapper has had his say; should figure as stable is operating at a good strike-rate (9-38 over the past two weeks)

Just a sole success to her name; no impression when sixth of seven in a fillies handicap at Turffontein Standside two weeks ago (dropped to 1m1f); may have to settle for supporting role

Verdict

This looks like a trappy affair but SACRED VALLEY gets the vote. Mirren will attract market support, and Stunning Kitten has run well previously over this course and distance.
