Verdict

MAGIQUE has returned a losing odds-on favourite on her last two starts but remains difficult to oppose despite those disappointments. She was beaten only a head by a horse rated 74 at this track last time which gives her the beating of Mosman. The latter is consistent enough without showing any real progress and the newcomer Evan Elpus could prove a bigger danger. He's related to four winners, three of which scored on the all-weather, and is preferred to Taming The Tweet. Striking Echo is probably best watched on the evidence of a modest debut effort.
