I’m not jumping up and down about her after Geelong like some are. It was just a win I thought, aided by a 12/10 steer. She is racing very dour this prep, and seemingly has lost her change up speed. I can see her running top ten. I can’t see her winning/placing.

Naturalism Stakes (2000m), September 18 2021, Caulfield, Anti-Clockwise Direction, Good Surface
Sound run from her. She had the suck run behind the speed and was there to threaten. Just a bit one paced but a pass mark for sure when third to Nonconformist, who ran second in the Caulfield Cup.
Bart Cummings (2520m), October 2 2021, Flemington, Anti-Clockwise Direction, Soft Surface
She was brave from the wide gate. Tried her heart out to wear down but couldn’t bridge the gap on a very much in form Grand Promenade. Very good second.
Geelong Cup (2400m), October 20 2021, Geelong, Anti-Clockwise Direction, Good Surface
A win here and she secures spot. That’s exactly what she did. The knock I have on this race is that she was just edging clear of Dr Drill, who I rate as a solid 2000m Listed horse. Is that Melbourne Cup winning form?
