MARDI GRAS GIRL has been in much better form so far this year and drew clear of her rivals for a cosy course and distance success last month with a subsequent winner back in third. She’s looks worth sticking with and is taken to reverse running here in December with My Cotton Candy. The latter landed the odds with the minimum of fuss last time but this is tougher while stablemate Cultural Mandate went close over 6f at the track recently having finished ahead of Return The Favor when scoring here back in January.
