Verdict

LADY BENNETT won three times on the Flat and was in decent form before making an encouraging debut over timber behind Massini's Trap at Ballinrobe. With improvement expected she can go one better and again take care of May Dullea, who finished around two lengths behind her. Kims Fancy appears to have gone backwards after a bright start and Faustina Pius has disappointed too many times. Rhinestone Cowgirl has been running well and, with her allowances, looks a big threat on the fast ground she likes but Dancin' Glory has only ever raced on ground with plenty of give.
