Walkin Princess has won all seven starts at this venue and completed a six-timer over six furlongs here in September. She has been absent since, however, and is passed over in favour of LILL MAVE, who completed a hat-trick when successful over a mile here last month and can make her race fitness count. Miss Otis looks next best.

Return To Denis drops significantly in grade and it will be disappointing if she fails to make her presence felt, while Reminisce invariably runs her race in this grade and isn't passed over lightly. However, Z NATION has finished runner-up on her last two starts over a mile and the manner of her closing effort last time suggests this greater emphasis on stamina can help her go one better.

Starnilla arrives with the best recent form after finishing runner-up over track and trip last month and she rates the biggest danger ahead of Spectacular Lady.

Kara Lot had Legendarys First behind in third when runner-up over a similar trip here last month and both ought to be thereabouts, but preference is for OAKMONT MISS. The selection was squeezed for room at the start when only fifth over five furlongs here last time, but her penultimate second reads well in the context of this race and she looks worth another chance.
