World Of Hope will start as the joint favourite and has shown improvement every time she stepped back in length. She finished a clear second in her last start, which was on this track over this length. Expected to be amongst the features when crossing the line. Miss Vesper will be the joint favourite and will be resuming here after a 5 month break. She’s won both of her first up starts so far and will be expected to put in another strong performance here. Camila Lucinda has had two wins in her three runs since resuming and is in a very good position to snatch a win here. Will be in the mix.
