WHAT THE KEY PLAYERS ARE SAYING:

“I think her natural race pattern is to go forward. The only reason we’ve been stuck out wide or gone back is because we’ve drawn average. And today we’ve drawn well” – Thrillster’s co-trainer Troy Corstens

“She seemed to work well on Tuesday so I’m as confident as we can be without having seen her at the trip” – Smart Melody’s trainer Kris Lees

“She’s going to be strong late. It’s just whether the other filly has got that bit of brilliance to help her get the mile” – Kris Lees on El Dorado Dreaming

“The only chink in her armour is her last start in Sydney and she pulled up with the thumps. So if you take that out of the equation the rest of her form is really good” – Seabrook’s jockey Dwayne Dunn
