Verdict

The Sail From Seattle filly from the Alan Greeff yard SEATTLE SPLENDOUR is better than her last run would suggest. That run was on the turf. Her two previous runs on the Polytrack were decent enough and the step up to 1200m could suit. COWGIRLINTHESAND was not disgraced on her local debut when fourth. She is likely to have made improvement since then and gets Blinkers on.

Verdict

COWGIRLINTHESAND is probably the best recommendation but will need to be on song. Blue Mood may be the one for second, while Hashtagselfie looks best of the remainder.

Verdict

A small field but it should be a competitive race. STORY OF MY LIFE is holding his form and was not disgraced behind a good sort last time out. INVITING LILY could prefer this shorter distance and his yard is in fine form. FIRE IN THE BELLY bounced back to show what he is capable of when winning very nicely over this course and distance. Respect the raider TWILIGHT TRIP.

Verdict

INVITING LILY quickly put a modest run aside last time and looks the one they all have to beat. Twilight Trip seems the primary threat, while Western Wu might be worth siding with for third.

Verdict

Trainer Candice Bass-Robinson has a good record when raiding the Eastern Cape, especially in the maiden ranks and TYRANDEUS can keep that steak running. This Ontario gelding was not disgraced when fourth in his latest. He is trying the Polytrack for the first time. NO FLY ZONE is badly drawn but is holding form and could finish in the money. COUNTING STARS is should run well.

Verdict

TYRANDEUS's overall form just puts him out in front but hasn't much room for error. Counting Stars can emerge best of the remainder, while Romano looks the one for the minor money.

Verdict

BEATABOUTTHEBUSH has won 5 of her 13 starts and is well weighted in this race. She should prove hard to beat although she is trying the Polytrack for the first time and is giving weight away to all her rivals. TAMASHI is improving nicely and has won her last 3 starts. This will be a tougher task for her. VALEDICTION could earn some money. Respect RED GRANITE and ANOTHER NIGHT.

Verdict

BEATABOUTTHEBUSH looks to have marginally the best chance but any trouble could put paid to her chance. Another Night is high up there among the rest, while Valediction is another with a place chance too.

Verdict

A tough race. FRIKKIE is holding his form but is giving weight away to his rivals. DESERT WISDOM is improving and has won his last two starts. He can win again. PYRAMUS has not won for sometime but could earn some money. GRAF SPEE did not repeat on the turf what he showed on this surface in his penultimate start. QUID RIDES is in good form but battles to finish off his race.

Verdict

PYRAMUS quite clearly has the best form and shouldn't be troubled too much. Quid Rides arguably sets the standard among the remainder, while Captain Disko is one to bear in mind as well.

Verdict

An interesting. CLOUD ATLAS is clearly a promising filly and she was only run out of it late by some good fillies last time out. this does appear weaker so she should go close. MA FORTE steps up in distance but must be respected from the Justin Snaith yard. Stable companion BID FOR SUNSET was not disgraced when fourth in her latest start and is improving. WHAT A PLAYER can win.

Verdict

CLOUD ATLAS is the tentative selection but will need to avoid any trouble. Bid Before Sunset is given the vote for second, while Swift Dancer is in the running for a share of the minor money.

Verdict

LOVE OF INDIA was not disgraced when not beaten far on her local debut. This shorter distance should suit her better and she could take to the Polytrack which she tries for the first time. I WILL BE could pop up in the places. BAH is unreliable but is clearly not out of it. HIGH DEFINITION has been run out of it late lately has a chance in this as does SCRIBO.

Verdict

I WILL BE's overall form just puts him out in front but it's an open race. Scribo shouldn't be underestimated, while High Definition also commands consideration.

Verdict

ARAMOUSE could improve back on the Polytrack. KINGSTON WARREN is badly drawn but could still finish in the money. OVER DRIVE was backed and won his latest start so must be given the utmost respect in this line-up. FEARLESS FRED is badly drawn but could pop up in the places. ORACLE KINGDOM shows pace and could run well. SAINT DONAN is another Western cape raider that can win.

Verdict

KINGSTON WARREN's recent efforts have been likeable on the whole and he sets the bar, albeit not too high. Saint Donan is hard to ignore in the search for second, while Oracle Kingdom is another with a place chance too.

Verdict

CANDY CRUSH has won two of her last three starts and must have a winning chance in this line-up. SYMPHONY IN SEVEN got out of the maiden ranks on Greyville Poltrack recently and has a winning chance in this race. Stable companions BUTTERFLY SPIRIT and IMAGINE DRAGONS both deserve respect and should runwell. Trainer Paul Reeves could pick up the last two races(REBELS IDOL).

Verdict

SYMPHONY IN SEVEN quickly put a below-par run aside last time and has prime claims. Rebel's Idol is most likely the sternest opposition, while Across The Lake is another likely to be on the premises.
