"He holds five of this field on that last run yet gets in off the same rating this afternoon..."

Ms Holly Golightly - 12:50 Flamingo Park

Ms Holly Golightly has been in excellent form lately for trainer Dennis Cason with a win over the mile here in December followed by a half length course and distance second last month when worried out of it by Pretty Wendy but three and three quarters lengths clear of the third. Left on the same rating of 54 this afternoon the daughter of Spectrum will be unlucky to run in to one as well handicapped today, leaving Ms Holly Golightly as the likeliest winner of this contest.

Nicklaus - 14:55 Flamingo Park

Nicklaus is now in the hands of Corrie Lensley having left Duncan Howells after a five and a half-length fifth to Roy Had Enough in the Listed Christmas Handicap at Greyville on Boxing Day, and he ought to find this a lot easier on the Flamingo Park sand. The form of his last race is working out well with the fourth and fifth winning next time out and as his sand rating is eleven pounds lower, Nicklaus has to have an excellent chance of a sixth career success this afternoon with Muzi Yeni in the saddle.

Secret Delight - 15:55 Flamingo Park

Secret Delight has flattered to deceive twice in a row now with second place finishes here over course and distance in January, and then over a seventh furlong earlier this month, beaten less than a length each time. He holds five of this field on that last run yet gets in off the same rating this afternoon, and if he gets a clear run in this field then Secret Delight can win for trainer Bill Human for the eighth time at the age of seven.
