In depth

Verdict

NULLARBOR SKY is the one to beat in this. She's won three of her last four starts over track and trip and can defy a 10lb rise given last month's victory was the most impressive so far. The Ducking Stool was well beaten behind the selection last time while Art Scholar continues to struggle despite tumbling down the weights. Ethics Girl has been in decent form in plating races but will find life tougher in this.
