Verdict

Flag Bearer ought to be in contention although his last run was slightly disappointing, and this trip could be a bit far for Namaqua Blossom. However, RARATONGA ROSE is top of the list. She has been a winner here and can confirm superiority with Namaqua Blossom and Go Dream Machine who were behind her last time.
