2000m – Turf



Enjoyed the step up to 1800m last time and the form has worked out well and she is much better drawn now. Only has a two-point merit rating raise to contend with and should enjoy the further step up in trip but does have to translate that Polytrack form to turf. 


Consol Queen 

Ran a fine race from this same draw over 1900m in March and can put two below par runs since then behind her running off a one point lower mark back at this course. 


Abbey Wood 

Is 3 lb better off with Integrity for a 1.35 lengths beating and has another good draw although the latter has a better draw than last time so it won’t be easy to reverse form. 



Has gone completely off form on paper since winning her maiden over 1950m second time out, where she beat Abbey Wood by 2.5 lengths and Simply Complicated by 5.1 lengths, so she could be the surprise package here as her last few races have just not panned out well for her and she is due a change in luck.     


Simply Complicated 

Won her maiden well last time and is on the up so has a chance off a reasonable 70 merit rating.   


Flower Of Saigon 

Is in fine form and proved she stays this trip last time when third in the Listed East Coast Cup and she runs off the same merit rating here. 


Pinch Me 

Won nicely here over 1900m in her penultimate start but does have 5.45 lengths to make up on Flower Of Saigon from the East Coast Cup over this course and distance. 


Mama Pyjama  

Comes off a nice second over 1900m on the poly but in her previous two starts over 1900m and 1950m respectively on the turf she was well beaten by East Coast Cup winner Keep On Dancing.


Top Me Up Holly 

Won her maiden over 1800m on the poly in good style and on formlines there is not much between her and Integrity but she does have a tricky draw. 


Red Al  

Has dropped to an attractive merit rating and steps up to a more suitable trip, although on formlines there is not much between her and Abbey Wood. 



Stays this trip but has a bit to do to reverse form with Consol Queen from an earlier clash at this course over 1900m.  


Peanut Butter 

Has a lot to do to reverse form with Consol Queen on the evidence of a 1900m event here and she has a tough draw. 


Twice To Sydney

Has claims on her recent close up form behind the East Coast Cup winner Keep On Dancing and she is better off with Consol Queen for a 0.8 length beating.   



Ran well in her penultimate start over this course and distance but she will have to put her last start at Scottsville behind her and she has a wide draw on her return from a layoff since early February.
