Near miss when favourite second time out for this trainer in a fillies Listed race (dropped back to 5f) three weeks ago (form has been nicely boosted); impressive record here of three wins from eight runs and ran well when third in the Grade 1 Mercury Sprint recently; needs considering despite being up in class

Verdict

MOONSHININGTHROUGH is a firm choice. She should be capable of further improvement and can confirm placings with Desert Miracle and Kayla's Champ, who were behind three weeks ago. Full Velocity is a big threat while Coin Spinner is capable of running well, and Desert Miracle will not be without market support.
