Mandhooma is a standing dish at this track and occasionally pops up, but she's racing off a career high mark today. OLNEY LASS has also taken to this course and won on all three occasions she's lined-up here including her last two starts. Today's rivals Timpanist and Indian Violet have been among her victims and there should be more to come from Lydia Pearce's filly. Stonescrabstomorrow and Witchry have been holding their form well and could figure along with Obiter Dicta, who is still looking for her first win.
