Gets the run of the race from the barrier (3) with Winx’s regular rider Hugh Bowman on. She performs well fresh (5:1-3-0) and was only a length beaten last start in Melbourne when fifth to Shoals in the Myer Classic (1600m). This is easier. EGYPTIAN SYMBOL ($5.50) is the value with Each Way claims, the Bjorn Baker-trained daughter of Stratum one on the outside of Foxplay and has the fitness edge aver two placings this campaign.
