It never ceases to amaze me that Ipswich's big fillies and mares race is named after Gai Waterhouse. Anyway, we won't go there, but simply look at a pretty moderate race. At least we have history of this one recently over this distance, and oddly we see that the DI of past winners of this are often a lot higher than the Eye Liner when they were over the same distance. I am going to suggest that this is a class factor.

We had one winner at 1.60 so probably happy this year to leave out any of the lower numbers. The next DI is in that popular range between 3.00 and 3.60 and any horses with a DI here should be looked at closely. Multaja and Shalwa both fit here and will be strong chances, but the best suited looks to be the topweight Jamaican Rain. At good odds, she might give this a shake even though the bad barrier is not going to help. There have been four winners with a DI between 4.50 and 11.00 and I suspect that it will a very competitive race so don't discard one in this range if you like it. Still, I think the one that matches the DI of past winners most closely is Jamaican Rain and she looks to be a real value runner.
