WHAT THE MAIN PLAYERS ARE SAYING
“I would obviously love to finish her three-year-old season with her a Group One winner,” – Champagne Cuddles’ trainer Bjorn Baker
“It’s going to be a good race, no doubt about that, but I think if she runs anywhere near like she did the other day she’s going to be thereabouts,” – trainer Andrew Noblet on Super Cash
“She’s in great shape. I thought she was open to improvement after the Dane Ripper Stakes and she’s done well since that run. I’d like to think she can show that improvement on Saturday and be right amongst it,” Prompt Response’s co-trainer Adrian Bott.
