Forecast

Theatre Territory (4/9), Thegirlfrommilan (9/2), Wishicould (12/1), Miss Spent (14/1), Pearl Royale (20/1), Midnight Glory (25/1)

Verdict
Official ratings suggest that this should go the way of THEATRE TERRITORY, but a mark of 128 might over-estimate her true ability. Nevertheless, given her trainer and jockey combination and overall progressive profile, her claims are impossible to ignore with the battle hardened Miss Spent, and the dour staying Thegirlfrommilan likely to give her most to do. 1. Theatre Territory 2. Thegirlfrommilan 3. Miss Spent
