2021 Surround Stakes Best Bets
Dame Giselle resumed reasonably well and looks as good a chance as any here, with main rival Hungry Heart more suited over the mile rather than the 1400m.
Away Game is currently in Sydney and has to be a threat if she heads to the 2021 Surround Stakes, as does Forbidden Love, who possesses the turn of foot required to win.
Happy to avoid Montefilia, who will probably hit this first up and is on an Oaks Path.
