Verdict

Plenty with claims in an open contest and Betty Grable remains in good form having landed a double in May including a course and distance success. She beat Mywayistheonlyway and Rosemay on that occasion and the latter is only 2lb higher than when scoring at Hamilton last time. Move In Faster was placed at Hamilton recently and Chinese Spirit finished third here a week ago but preference is for stablemate and last year’s winner LUCKY VIOLET. The latter wasn’t beaten far despite finishing only fifth over track and trip a fortnight ago and Linda Perratt’s mare drops down a couple of grades for this.
