The Sportsman's Verdict
LADY WRITER arguably put in a career best when filling third place in maiden hurdle late last month and that performance suggests that she can win a race of this nature off her current mark. Capture The Drama ran well enough over fences last time out and he looks to exploit a lower hurdles mark today. Others to consider are Cher Why Not and Holy Motivation.
