Can she settle closer?

The biggest question mark I have over Royal Missile is whether she can jump away a little sharper from the barriers and settle midfield with cover rather than being last around the home corner. She ran home in a blistering final 600m burst in the Burgess Queen on a track which was suiting leaders and is definitely a galloper who will relish every inch of a mile. There are question marks over stable mate Caipirinha and whether or not she will see out the trip but looks as though on paper she will get things all her own way out in front if that's the way Azzopardi wants to ride her. Burgess Queen winner Ellicazoom has come back in sensational order and definitely looks the one to beat. I would suggest backing her in the Kingston Town Classic if you're a fan of Ellicazoom because a 3 year old filly carrying 50kg in the Group 1 Feature is a recipe for cash.
