Verdict

There is little between GLORIOUS LADY and Aurora Thunder on these terms having both placed in handicaps on their latest outings. But the former came out best when they last met here in September and it could be the same outcome today. Maid O'malley finished runner-up at Perth back in September and has yet to encounter ground this soft while Blossoming Forth finished closer at Wetherby on her hurdling bow and can also figure. Racks Cross won a point-to-point back in May and debuts under rules.
