Comments: Mark Gatt (Trainer) – “I think she should go well. I don’t really like box one with her but with the draw the way it is she should get a good run on the fence. Realistically, she is a good chance of winning. She is really starting to race well.”

Comments: Huge run last week. She was caught up in interference early but worked herself into the race late to score by one and three quarter lengths in 29.96. One of the main dangers to Ritza Hattie.

Comments: Showed the effects of the gruelling Golden Easter Egg series last week, failing to lead. She finished strongly for third behind Smashing Sally and isn’t without a chance if she gets a start.

A real race will be on between the inside three bitches. Ritza Hattie (1) looks the favourite, drawing the prime rails position and coming off a flying 29.47 two weeks ago on Easter Egg night. Her trainer is hoping the box will give her the advantage along the rails. She will be challenged early by both Zipping Summah (2) and Zipping Willow (3). The dynamic sisters are both sub-30 performers at Wentworth Park and possess a strong finish. They are the main threats to Ritza Hattie saluting.

Irondale Bravo (5) is currently at double figure odds in betting markets but it’s worth remembering that she has a 29.66 personal best to her credit and she has been racing well. She will be poised to strike if the inside three have a mix-up. Quick Succession (7) was the fastest heat winner in 29.80. She jumped from box two in the heats and now moves to the unsuitable wide draw. She will need luck from the draw but if she can lead, she will perform well. The remainder of the outside divison, Lacey Lois (6) and Rose Of Galo (8) both possess early toe but are considered rough outside chances of winning. Lastly, Smashing Sally (4) will need to show some consistency if she is to win as her form prior to the series was all over the place.
