I suspect she was trained differently as she was untested at the distance prior to that prep. Definitely lost her turn of foot by the time she got beat in the Turnbull. The start prior was beaten by Gatting(100-1) when she was an even money fav.

Has definitely dropped a level after that prep but i dont recall her having a tough run in the CP or prep generally so has maybe just dropped back a level?, the one win since 2019 was probably lucky it was it the Valley as anywhere else Perfect Jewel wins.

I remember she was fav for the Cox Plate after she won the  Australian Guineas-All Star Mile double. Maybe the CP prep wrecked her the way the Melb Cup does to some horses?

LOTS of luck needed but if the underpriced fav goes like one earlier Irritable Rodnee can give these other plodders a shake.
