    Verdict

    Adorata, Del Mar Sunset and Rock Lobster are three against the field in this competitive classified stakes race and the narrow vote is given to Adorata. The selection was a fair fourth behind Go Yellow last time out will like the ground is sure to have come on fore his last run and from what looks a good draw he will be hard to beat. Del Mar Sunset rates the main danger on his latest second behind Bobby Charles but her best form of late has come on the AW and for that reason she is passed over on this occasion. Rock Lobster is another worthy of respect on his best form of last season but her yard has yet to hit form and she may just need the run after a 245 day absence. Of the remainder Anduril and Vibe have place claims at best but would be better off with some rivals if this were a handicap and for the winner we return to Adorata.
