Verdict

This is tricky despite RAKTICATE being well clear on official ratings. A tendency to find one too good and a modest debut on this surface last season doesn't inspire confidence, but she won't get many easier opportunities than this and should prevail. It's difficult to find any worthwhile form amongst the opposition with Ceekay's Girl weighted to come out best of the remaining trio although Darakti does at least have experience of the track and is preferred to Positive Parenting.
