Verdict

DANCING FOR RAIN attracted plenty market support when making a promising debut and, with natural improvement, she should go close. VASE has more experience and can make her presence felt, although a bigger threat is likely to come from well-related newcomers DREAM DANCER and SANS REGRETS. Watch the betting!

Verdict

ZELVANO won't need to be a worldbeater to take this first time up and seems to have been found a decent opportunity. Dream Dancer seems the most likely to capitalise if the selection fails to deliver having her first run, while Sans Regrets also commands consideration first time out.

Verdict

BRAVE MOVE has scope for further improvement and could still be better than rated. She rounded off a hat-trick of wins last time over the course and distance. PHILAE made the running that day and finished 3.25 lengths adrift, but she latter is 7kg better off with a 4kg claimer up and may not be for the catching in receipt of 11.5kg. INTOTHELIMELIGHT has claims on these terms.

Verdict

PHILAE looks to be the safest option but has next to no margin for error. Brave Move is tough to ignore in the search for second, while Intothelimelight can't be ruled out of things either.

Verdict

MAGNIFICENT SEVEN got going late when a close-up 2nd over 2000m last time. He would have come on since but this drop in trip and wide draw is a concern. GIANT FLAG has made good improvement since returning from a lengthy absence. He was 2nd in his most recent start (over track and trip) and can go one better in his peak outing. CRADLEOFGRATITUDE should fare better this trip.

Verdict

MAGNIFICENT SEVEN has quite a significant edge on form and will take plenty of beating. Giant Flag is the most prudent second option, while Rikers Island is one to bear in mind too.

Verdict

Bass-Robinson runners SILVER MASTER and MANETHEREN make most appeal and could fight out the finish. The top-weight is holding form at this level and ought to give another honest account. The well-related latter is still on the up after gelding and pose a threat in receipt of 3kg. MELIORA and PARA HANDYare not without chances either, and TYRANDEUS could have more to offer.

Verdict

PARA HANDY has very good claims and sets a solid standard. Cream Soda Green is another who could have a hand in the finish, while Silver Master is another with place prospects.

Verdict

Open. STRIKEITLIKEAMATCH finished just off RED EIGHT last time but should should reverse that form given the weight turnaround, and confirm with READY STEADY GO. Last-start winner DAYONAUT has more to do now and is held by the selection on these terms (on their meeting behind Hithimagainchuck). DALIBHUNGA is closely matched with the selection and could pose the biggest threat.

Verdict

TEUTONIC KNIGHT has a fair amount in hand on form and has a clear chance. Strikeitlikeamatch is the most realistic next preference, while Ready Steady Go comes into calculations for third place.

Verdict

GIMME KATRINA was ahead of TRIP TO IBIZA over 1200m last time and should confirm on these terms. Both, however, are better over this distance and will be suited by the hot tempo set by likely frontrunner IT IS WHAT IT IS. Last-start winner REGAL RUBY should also ensure an honest gallop with a 4kg claimer up. Kotzen runners RUSTAR DHOW, ROYAL SENSATION and ESPRESSIVO have claims

Verdict

REBELS SPIRIT has very good claims and will take plenty of beating. Gimme Katrina is the most realistic option for second, while Rustar Dhow may grab a bit of place money.

Verdict

STREETFIGHTING MAN caught the eye last time after a short break when running on strongly over 1600m. On that evidence, this step up in trip should suitand he'd be hard to beat if building on that effort. Stable companions DUE VOLTE and MIND BLOWING are closely matched on form. They appear best of the rest, although BRANDENBURG can also feature if confirming recent improvement.

Verdict

STREETFIGHTING MAN looks marginally the pick of this bunch but can't afford to put a foot wrong. Due Volte is also in with a shout, while Mind Blowing is perhaps the most interesting other runner in the field.

Verdict

Wide open. Both AZINZA and FINE LADY may have finished closer last time hadthey been not inconvenienced in the run. The former had run well over this trip prior to that, so may be worth another chance. MAGIC MARY and ELUSIVE RUN could make improvement over the extra. The same could be said of ROYAL KISS and CAMBRIDGE GIRL but they have wide draws to negotiate. Quartets a must!

Verdict

AZINZA has been in decent form of late and sets the bar, albeit not too high. Second Chance is the most likely danger, while Fine Lady is in the running for a share of the minor money.
