RACE 4

1 ZEUS 6 YOUCANTHURRYLOVE 5 BREEZE OVER 3 EAST COAST

4 LADY FALLON 7 SUKHUMVIT 2 CAPE LIGHTS 3 RIVER QUERARESS

Preview: 4 LADY FALLON is progressive and wasn’t disgraced in a Gr 3 last time but she does have a tricky draw. 7 SUKHUMVIT is well regarded and is drawn in pole over a suitable trip and although she is officially 1kg under sufferance she is entitled to improve. 2 CAPE LIGHTS is consistent and is distance suited and has a faIr draw. 3 RIVER QUERARESS has some class and is well drawn off a competitive mark albeit over a trip which is at the top end of her stamina range (4-7-2-3)
