The Snitzel filly steps out third-up after consecutive runner-up efforts, including one at G3 level behind classy colt Pierata. On that form she's likely to start short odds but that seems fair enough in this field.
Zabeel's Choice (12) won several trials before her debut last month, which resulted in a close runner-up finish over this trip at Wyong. The Snitzel filly will take improvement from her first trip to the races and she should find a handy position in running. Chris Waller-trained gelding Balearic (5) was beaten less than a length at Randwick on New Year's day and gets the services of top jockey Hugh Bowman. Earlier this prep he was beaten 0.1L by stablemate Seaway, who also won his next start. Westrock (2) can improve after finishing second on debut and he should go forward and take bad luck out of the equation.
