There would be no more deserving winner than HIFALUTIN, who has made the frame on all but one of her seven career outings and it will be disappointing if she can’t break through today. Donnameup wasn’t far behind her over 6f in March, so she has to be considered a danger. Mighty Electrica also in with a shout.
The Goddess Lyssa has yet to put a foot wrong but faces some promising colts and geldings, not least LIBERATE, who has only tasted defeat once and signed off his juvenile campaign with a demolition job in a $150k event. Wicked Warrior was one of those trailing in his wake that day, but Two Last Words could be a danger if ready to roll.
HONESTA has been much improved since switching to this venue and has found only one too strong on each of her last couple of appearances. Splendor Beach and Born To Groove have already finished behind her, so she may have most to fear from Moms Love.

FLAMING INDY has been performing with credit in stronger contests than this and could prove difficult to beat dropped to calmer waters. Billysbirthdaygirl posted her best effort to date when runner-up over five furlongs here last month, while Shanghai Kimmy represents a trainer who is operating at a 30% strike-rate at this meeting and she should be noted for market support.
PUNTSVILLE has reserved her best performances for this distance and although she failed to fire over six furlongs here in February, her penultimate second reads well in the context of this race and she looks worth another chance. O’Keeffe has been knocking at the door in some useful events and looks next best ahead of No Mercy Percy.
I’M A G SIX has won three of his last four starts and had Town Classic behind in second when recording a determined success over track and trip in March. He is difficult to oppose in his current form and can see off the aforementioned Town Classic and the consistent Navy Armed Guard.
SNOW LION is used to keeping much better company than this and the course scorer can regain the winning thread now eased in class. Chances are also given to Channeledslongshot and Speakerit.
THE KAHN wasn’t winning out of turn last time out and connections have found their charge another very winnable opening in this claimer. English Laughter is better than his latest showing and joins Wilshire Star on the shortlist.
Beachwalker and U S Delta Force have both done enough to suggest they can win a maiden special weight like this, but IDLE TIME might make them settle for a supporting role again judged on his impressive debut second here in March.
