Scarlet Bow twice numbered subsequent scorer Flashy Patch among her victims when completing a track-and-trip double, but the hat-trick bid could be scuppered by BLAZING BROOKE. Kathleen O’Connell’s filly has won two of her last three, in slightly stronger company.
Secret beat Red Kitten to the runner-up berth here but may have to settle for another supporting role, this time behind AND I KNOW. The daughter of Handsome Mike finally got off the mark in comprehensive fashion, and she can go on with it now.
DIAMOND NEWS has acquitted herself really well in good races since breaking her duck over Christmas, and she had Princess Brienne behind her when runner-up here in February. She is preferred to the progressive Commander Of Death and the inconsistent Adonai Bless.
GETTININTOMISCHIEF arrives on the back of a consistent run of form and the five-year-old is capable of repeating his success from two outings ago. King Daddio can enter the reckoning along with Credit Cycle.
SEGISMUNDO bounced back to winning ways in great style at the course last month and the step back up in grade is unlikely to faze him. The main threats appear to be A Girls Bestfriend and Fast Flying Fred.
MEILLEUR showed his versatility when finishing second after being dropped back to an extended 5f last time and this appears to be a suitable winning opportunity. Others to note include Secret Life Style and Entertainer.
TRACY ANN’S LEGACY’s effort last time was too bad to be true, but she previously accounted for a few of these here and will enjoy this drop back to 5f after a month off the track. Winning Quality and the unexposed Pins And Needles make up the shortlist.
K J’S CAFFE showed signs of ability when fourth on debut here last month and, with improvement expected, could have too much for these more exposed rivals. Koa Kani was second last time after a break, while Sharon’s Law placed twice prior to a mediocre performance just 11 days ago and could bounce back.
