She’s had all of her last 4 runs on this track which has bene of great help to her preparation. Has a great position and a good gate draw here which will only serve to make her even tougher to beat. Soho Burning Love has featured in all of her last ten starts, winning half. Her consistency will serve her well here and she will be the biggest genuine threat to the favourite. Detroit Lily comes into this having won her last two races, both of which contained the favourite here. Hard to fault on current form and could win here.
