MAGIC TIPS (Winning Form) Comment:
This brilliant filly undoubtedly prefers a galloping track but such is her class that she has an excellent record at this venue, including a powerful finish to be runner-up in a mile feature despite racing wide three weeks ago. She has had a solid preparation and should be ideally suited to this distance on her peak showing. Of course her championship elect jockey only inherited this mount at the last minute but she will be making late headway. The likely sedate gallop is a worry.

Verdict: Top class filly, needs a strong pace but will enjoy this trip.
