TAHITIAN PRINCESS has the most consistent form. Ann Duffield's filly scored over C&D last month and today's rivals won't take much beating. Kassaab is the only other to have won a race and that was back in February on the Polytrack, while a fifth at Southwell is Babich Bay's best effort to date. Deliberation managed a fourth over track and trip in a selling maiden last month, but Tinzo and Sleights Boy haven't shown any form worth a mention so far.
