RACE 4:Maiden Plate (F & M) 1200m Bend

CONNE MARA BLACK does not have the best of draws but if anyone can win from the widest draw then it should be Piere Strydom. Form is good and she should run well this afternoon. CRADLE SONG is very fast but she fades. Chance in this field. Anthony Delpech rides. RUBIES AND PEARLS has only run twice and she has shown some potential and should improve soon. ATALAYA has had two good recent efforts but still fades late. This shorter trip may suit. FLAUNT YOUR STYLE has shown small improvement in her last two starts.
