Verdict

Jim Bolger hasn't been able to conjure a win out of STRAPLESS but surely this is her day. Narrowly beaten by subsequent winner Lightnin Hopkins over 6f at Naas, she's raced over longer trips in her two latest starts and back to what should be her best distance is expected to gain that elusive first victory. Cut Me Loose was just behind her over 7f at Down Royal last time and there's little between them on that form but Harley's Harley, Fromajacktoaking and Maxi Mac were all behind and are unlikely to reverse the form.
