9: She’s Mighty Fast (Eikleberry, Padilla)119/9-2
In what appears to be a two-horse race on paper with the inside runners, PLEASANT LIFE ran a strong second closing four-wide on a soft course. Gets jockey switch to Derek Bell today. DAY GLOW is the class of the field and the one to beat. Expect to see early foot starting from the inside post and has been facing much tougher. SAJANI had a bumpy start on the sloppy course in Canterbury return and should feel much more relaxed on the preferred lawn.

FRANZ might have found the ideal spot on the drop and likes to press the pace and possibly enjoying the extra half-furlong today. DAKOTA COUNCIL won last out being forwardly place before taking over down the stretch with two-length victory driving clear. Slight concern with slow fractions. WILD WILD POSSE could be the one to catch coming from the far outside post with Goodwin aboard.
