Verdict

TIME STANDS STILL arrives here following back-to-back victories in September and that includes her success over C&D a fortnight ago. A 3lb rise in the ratings for that win is fair and she can rack up the hat-trick this evening. Waitaki was only denied by a neck at Cork on Wednesday and she should be in the mix once again today, while Captain Power has an each-way shout.

Verdict

LUNA'S LUCK has been shaping up quite well on turf, and though he's higher in the weights on the AW, it's entirely justified, so he has a lot in his favour. Time Stands Still chases a hat-trick and has to be feared in her current mood, with Waitaki another to consider.
