On Cue from the Paul Matchett stable takes her place in Race 8, with Philasande Mxoli taking this ride. She ran a fair race in the Non-Black Type TAB Bauhinia Handicap last time.

She would have come on from the run and should strip much fitter.

Three of her five career victories have come over this distance. She takes on weaker company this afternoon and can return to winning ways.

She comes back from a decent rest period with her last run having been on 25 February.
