FABVIER finished her race off nicely when placed at Canterbury when resuming. She gets her chance to win a race back to a provincial maiden.
BRIDLE LANE wasn't far from the winner at Kembla when resuming last start after covering ground in the run. Rates as one of the key chances with the first-up run under her belt and the advantage of the inside gate.
REGENESIS struggled on the heavy surface at Newcastle Beaumont last start. Best three runs to date have all been on good tracks. Right in play if the track dries out.
