Verdict

Hathaway ran a shocker here last time but went close on her penultimate start. Queenie's Star usually runs her race though it's not good enough to get her head in front most of the time, while Idol Deputy has the past form to figure on his return from a lay-off. TIME TO PLAY is also making a comeback having gone close over C&D when last at the track in March 2010. That form is superior to anything else on offer if he's fully tuned-up after such a long absence and he gets a speculative vote.
