Verdict

The front runner Sweet Secret will have to get away smartly from her wide draw to grab the lead today, while 7f winner Aerodynamic has been raised another 6lb for being beaten a head at this track last time. Hereford Boy continues to rise up the weights after going close here the last twice and I Confess does most of his winning in plating company these days. However, TRIPLE EIGHT began this year on a 24lb higher mark and after finally showing some worthwhile form when runner-up at this track last time, Philip Kirby's charge gets the vote to go one better.
