Nothing to fault about her last run (just over 1l third, fillies handicap) four months ago running over this trip (Vaal); been raised a little in the ratings but running in a handicap for only the second time; she should give it a bold bid

Verdict

Women Of Fame should be in the mix despite a bad run last time while Gocekwithlove is one to be interested in. But LOVEGRASS is a confident pick. She is a distance winner.
