Sovereign Award (Caulfield Race 7 No. 8):
This Shamus Award mare is in excellent form and has won three of her five starts this preparation. She overaced mid-race and was checked when she finished 1.75 lengths 6th over 1600m at Moonee Valley on 5 September, then ran on strongly to charge clear over the last 50m for a 1.35 length win over 1600m at Moonee Valley on 2 October. This years Ladies Day Vase includes some very good mares including last years winner Spanish Reef and Fidelia who placed last year, but I think Sovereign Award looks a nice each-way bet.
