Verdict

BELIEVE INDEED had Award It behind when second in a similar contest at Santa Anita three starts ago and followed that up with a win there. Although she struggled over 5f last time, the return to this trip will help. The class-dropping Indypendent Deputy also merits consideration.

Verdict

HARLEY'S PRIDE started well only to blow up late on at Golden Gate on debut, but he worked really well at Santa Anita recently, suggesting that the outing has brought him on considerably. Fast Cotton has claims on his second-placed finish here two starts ago, while Optimum ran a cracker at Santa Anita latest.

Verdict

Don't Pass was brave in defeat last time and has claims, as does recent Golden Gate runner-up Bako Sweets. OPERANDI gets the vote, though, as she won well in a more valuable contest at Santa Anita last time.
