Not beaten too far at 4-1 when fifth of seven (this trip Greyville Polytrack, fillies handicap) last month; has won here before but a long time since she saw any reward for her efforts; hard to see her taking this with this looking tougher than last time

Ran well to finish runner-up (beaten 2½l) with blinkers reapplied (Greyville) when dropped down to 1m last month, form boosted by the third and sixth going on to win; course specialist who has won four times here; this looks tougher but hard to ignore

Verdict

Firm preference is for DAWNOFANEWDAY. Cape Eagle should be in the mix, and Queue Wing will not be without market support.
