Top 2 look strong not my idea of a betting race in general though being something of a warmup for many.

Grand De Flora worked her way into the race well last time having gone back from the draw. She's one I can see getting amongst JE and Two Illicit come Oaks time. Will have a tickle e/w if price holds up at 16s+ on the tote.

Of the two suggested Loire simply on the draw .....

My choice would be a maidener Starring Role ..... its four runs to date this time in has been very good and in two instances a little unlucky .... if she is well positioned in the run and the breaks open for her at the right time could be the one ..... paying $41 on f/o will have a wee bit on her myself.

No one has yet mentioned the smoky in the field ...SHOWBEEL. FF $9.50 is tempting.
Lightly raced but talented, 3rd in Eulogy, then tough run wide in the Eight Carat. Showbeel is by SAVABEEL out of Showileo, a grand-daughter of Showella, who was a SA Derby-winning grand-daughter of champion SHOW GATE. Showella left NZ Cup winner Showcause. Winning family!
Baker/Forsman polish, OP aboard, should get a much cosier trip than last time and has already won left-handed (maiden at Rotorua, beating Bergamot, which went on to win at its next start and subsequently finished 2nd to Two illicit in the Royal Stakes).

Chicken-livered bookies have Showbeel at $9.50 to win the Desert Gold on Saturday ...and the same price to win the NZ Oaks two months away!! Plonkers!
