PRETTY BORDER showed no signs of fatigue when she produced two smart runs inside seven days recently, the latest when catching the game frontrunner BEAUTIFUL SHAY over ten furlongs. She was rather kindly raised just the minimum two pounds and should be equally effective over this slightly shorter trip. The latter is 2kgs to the good and is often a threat with her tactics whilst BLUE SAGE finished strongly for 3rd behind the pair in the above-mentioned event but the big concern is that she may encounter some traffic issues in the latter stages considering she is handily drawn. OSSETRA has ultra consistent form and she should have a say over this suitable distance.
