Formscan - This has undoubtedly been a stellar season for Karl Burke and further Group-race success could be imminent if NOVAKAI runs anywhere near the level that saw her finish a close second in the Fillies' Mile here last October. Having shown her stamina over 1m4f with a victory in the Aphrodite on the July Course on her penultimate start, Burke's filly has proven credentials for a race of this nature and another big run is expected. Running Lion also has some high-class form to her name, but she has something to prove on her first try beyond 1m2f. Therefore, the less exposed three-year-olds Sweet Memories and Sea Theme may be more potent threats.
