Verdict

BIG HOUSE has been holding his form well at Penn, finishing second on his last start there. He has winning form at this track too so can land the spoils. Untethered had Northern Freeway behind three starts ago but the latter was forced so wide on the home bend that he could easily reverse form.

Verdict

Verdict

This looks a virtual match on paper, with TRUE CONCERN preferred ahead of Moments Notiz. The selection won a couple of races here last autumn and looked in fine fettle after fourth months off the track last time. Moments Notiz has a string of runner-up efforts to his name and is likely to be a challenger again. Curves That Kick is possibly best of the rest.

Verdict

Just a neck separated Hatta Double and Land Castle when filling second and third respectively last time. They both have claims, but GOOD GOSSIP improved enormously from her debut outing to finish second here last time and could continue that progression tonight.
