Verdict

Lucky Nine won the Group 2 Jockey Club Sprint here three weeks ago, beating Time After Time, Admiration, Cerise Cherry, Flying Blue, Super Easy, Leading City and Captain Sweet. But he'd earlier only managed fifth behind Takayuki Yasuda's improving four-year-old Lord Kanaloa at Nakayama and the Japanese raider is fancied to come out on top again today. SEA SIREN should be tough to beat, however, as the Australian filly is a proven Group 1 performer and was arguably unlucky to lose her unbeaten record over this trip when second at Flemington last month.
