All of these step up to a mile for the first time and it remains to be seen if that will suit Wink Oliver. The latter has proved a tad frustrating over shorter trips so far. But much better is expected from WINTER QUEEN on her handicap debut with Cam Hardie's allowance also helping her cause and she gets a speculative vote. Seebeedee finished closer at Ffos Las recently and looks more likely to stay the trip than both Activation and Robben while Goolagong Girl is another to consider.
