Happy to be with this All Too Hard mare following a brilliant Autumn campaign. Returning after 112 days off, The winner of the Guy Walter, Canterbury Stakes, and George Ryder has had just one trial in preparation for this which was won in a nice style. She has drawn wide here but she will likely follow Prime Candidate across and sit just off the leader’s backs throughout and her first-up record is fair. She started last preparation with a luckless second in the Expressway Stakes, so I am expecting a similar return on Saturday.
This isn’t the worst bet of the afternoon. She didn’t have the greatest Spring last year, finishing fifth, fourth, and fifth respectively in much harder company than what she faces today. In fact, this is her easiest race since Autumn last year. She has had one nice trial behind Hilal in preparation for this and will begin this preparation with 59kg after the 2kg claim of Tyler Schiller. I think the draw is fine and with the drop back in grade, she is a live each-way bet.

Our Pakenham Tips for Sunday's meeting. Key Comments The rail is out 7 metres the entire circuit.
