A long time since her last success; out of the frame beaten 3½l (went off 14-1) in a fillies handicap two weeks ago at Vaal on her second outing for this trainer; been eased in the ratings by the assessor; was an encouraging third six races ago and if in the same mood ought to be of interest

Verdict

ARIEL'S JET is a strong fancy. Summerland isn't out of it, and this trip could be a bit far for Feeling Groovy.
