SWS GRAND FINALE had the consistent Price Check (second) and Lil Sarah (third) behind her when landing her fifth win in nine starts last October and can confirm that form on her reappearance to take this. Please Believe Me and Penelope have form which ties in nicely with the aforementioned trio and warrant respect.

Katya Antipova hinted at being back to her best when making the podium at Golden Gates last time, while Heatseeker Baby is interesting in this easier-looking contest. However, preference is for REGAL LADY, who rattled the crossbar when last seen and the consistent performer rates the one to side with this time.

Verdict

HEAVENLY HOLIDAY accounted for consistent duo Secret Wind and Sinawava when twice scoring comfortably in May and is well placed to land a quick-fire hat-trick this time around. Sensorrey was an impressive six-length winner at Golden Gates last time and has to be taken seriously, while Ron's Cat and Two Bears are others to consider.

Verdict

Facts Matter has won two of his last three and it would come as no surprise if Tim McCanna's four-year-old were to take centre stage once again. Preference, however, is for Jonathan Wong's in-form DRAMATIC RIDE, who has finished on the podium on both outings since landing back-to-back races in the spring. Pampers N' Boots went close last time and is another to consider.
