RACE 5 (2) NIETA Horseform: Classy sprinting mare is perfectly placed to kick of a new campaign after two impressive trials that have shown she is in the right form to add to her excellent fresh record, having won three from four when first-up. Well treated in this field with only 1kg over the limit and there is no issue with her ability to handle any give in the track having won five times on soft ground. Started her spring prep with excellent efforts behind Redzel – must be hard to beat in this company on those form lines.

RACE 7 (7) EGG TART Horseform: She’s a dual Oaks winner but is versatile enough to match it in top company over the shorter distances when fresh as she showed first-up last spring and again when she resumed against a classy lot in the Liverpool City Cup (1300m) at Randwick on March 3 with an effort that points to her being set for perhaps her best campaign. Ridden with little urgency at the rear in the first half of that race but warmed to her task in great style to finish fourth, just a length off the winner after getting clear running late. Down 2kg and back to her own sex, she will relish stepping up to 1500m on her home track from a favourable inside gate.

RACE 9 (14) LOVANI Horseform: Looks a good gamble second-up for her new stable after resuming with an eye-catching fourth over 1200m on a slow track at Randwick after striking trouble mid race. The way she ran through the line made it clear that distance was too short and the step to 1350m second up with a 2kg drop to the limit weight should see this former Victorian very competitive in this field considering she has been placed in Group 2 company at Flemington.
