MAJESTIC LADY can land the finale at the main expense of Africa's Star and Excitable. The selection finished fifth behind Sarasota Sunshine at Warwick last month, but she wasn't beaten all that far and the form has since been franked. Excitable could be the big danger as she was a close third behind Dancing Wave at Redcar when last seen out. She was returning from a break that day so there should be more to come, but the draw is a slight negative. Africa's Star hails from a yard in good form but her third behind Crimea last time out has taken a bit of a knock as Mark Johnston's colt was a beaten favourite at Thirsk earlier in the week. Hitches Dubai shaped with promise at Redcar last month and he does have a good draw so he could be a decent each-way bet. But for the winner we will nominate Majestic Lady.
