Verdict

Good Gossip has her sights lowered after failing to fire on her introduction and it will be interesting to see which way she goes in the market on her debut for new connections. Mountaineer Cat is a fascinating contender on debut and should be noted for market support, but CLASS OF CONCERN posted her best effort to date when runner-up over track and trip last time and is marginally preferred.

Portent and Rasta Friend both have their sights lowered and are respected, while Fire Control has finished third on his last two starts and ought to be thereabouts. However, PHILIPPIAN has been no worse than second on his last five outings and hinted his turn was near when beaten less than a length into second over track and trip last month.

Toto's Darling is bred to be suited by this trip and any market support would be interesting, while Idaside has displayed enough to suggest she will be thereabouts. However, TOP HAT COUNTESS boasts considerable back class, is open to further improvement after only five starts, and can take advantage of this drop in grade to shed the maiden tag.

Kenzie sauntered clear to record an impressive success over track and trip in January and deserves this rise in grade, while Golack has her sights lowered and isn't dismissed lightly. However, I AM I WILL finished fourth in a stronger event over C&D last month and a reproduction of that effort may suffice.

Bulerisimmard would not have to be anything special to make a winning debut, while El Cachorro drops in grade and ought to be able to make his presence felt. However, CONQUISTODOR FUEGO hinted his turn was near when runner-up over track and trip last month and would not have to improve much to shed the maiden tag.

SEE YA MANANA had Lady's Lady (second), B's Wild Cork (third) and Wolfblade (fourth) in behind when successful over seven furlongs here last month and the impressive manner of that success suggests she can confirm the form. B's Wild Cork was sent off favourite that day and may emerge as the biggest danger out of that trio here.

Verdict

SILENT NOTION gained her reward for some consistent efforts when recording a fluent success over track and trip last month and she rates a solid selection to complete a double. Mining For Candy has finished behind her on her last two starts and may have to settle for minor honours once again, with Party N The Palace looking best of the rest.

LIMEHOUSER has proven consistency personified in recent months and hinted his turn was near when finishing third over track and trip last month. Clubin Til Midnite was behind in fourth that day and may represent the biggest danger to the selection ahead of Brute Force.
