2020 HOW NOW STAKES – RACE ANALYSIS AND TIPS

High pressure race from the outset with She's A Thief, Jentico and Felicia taking up the running over Our Campana and I Am Eloquent.

LYRE (6) just missed last time when neck from the winner in the G3 The Heath at this track over 1100m. Big run and she just peaked on it late in the piece so thinking that she comes here fitter. She's desperate to break back through and win another race and won't get many better chances to do so.

FELICIA (12) was in the market and ran well when resuming over 1200m in the LR Chandler Macleod at Moonee Valley. She can put herself in a positive spot here and be hard to beat. HUMMA HUMMA (2) is another that resumed over 1100m in the G3 The Heath at this track and was beaten less than a length. Has good upside with the run under her belt and expected to feature. FIESTA (7) resumes. Can make an impact fresh with her best form very solid for this.
