Not beaten too far at 7-1 when eighth of nine in a fillies handicap in November (Greyville) running over this trip; has only won on all-weather; been eased in the ratings by the handicapper; back from a break; others more likely as record when fresh isn't great

Has won previously at this course but generally modest form since fillies maiden plate success at Scottsville in July; failed to cash in on good draw (fillies handicap) latest (Greyville Polytrack) when last of eight; reunited with S Khumalo, the pair have built a good partnership; little chance

Verdict

Sting Ray has to be on the shortlist, although she could struggle to defy a hike in the weights, and Shona Kirsty Yves and Spirited Flight are perhaps looking exposed. However, NELLIE MELBA looks the one to back. She makes lots of appeal with scope for improvement and has won over this CD.
