JOOHAINA encountered heavy ground on her return from a lay-off but ran better when fourth here on her debut in June. She gets the vote back on Polytrack ahead of Lady Crossmar, who finished ahead of Aristocratic Duty when third over track and trip last week. Red Passiflora may improve racing on this surface for the first time while jockey bookings suggest Kind Invitation is preferred to stablemate Raphinae. Other newcomers to note include Carnevale, Shama and Water Hole. The latter pair can boast numerous winning relatives.
