Maui Girl (Hawkesbury Race 7 No. 6):
This five-year-old Lope De Vega mare is the early favourite in this benchmark 78 handicap over 1500m. She couldn’t go with the winner but battled on for 3 lengths 2nd over 1400m at Rosehill on 20 February, then was held up at the 200m and looked unlucky when 1.9 lengths 4th over 1400m at Newcastle on 5 March. This is her first run for trainer Annabel Neasham but she hasn’t won in eight starts this campaign and I don’t think that will change here.
