Verdict

CLASSY STUDENT continued where she left off last year, winning over the extended 1m at Hawthorne on her return 27 days ago, and she might be able to find the target again. There are plenty of dangers, however, with Bracken Belle and Prinzip topping the list.

Verdict

GEORGY GIRL showed plenty of speed when third on debut in a strong-looking 6f maiden claimer and, with this drop in both grade and trip to suit, she will prove difficult to beat. Now Roar also made a promising introduction and he rates the biggest threat, ahead of newcomer Rain Drop Kid.

Verdict

INFLATE finished second in a better maiden than this here a couple of weeks ago and he can be supported to go one better this evening. Foots is an obvious danger based on previous form, while Confiscate is another to consider.
