Verdict

A weak looking field and it may pay to keep an eye on the three newcomers. Of those that have run before MY BOY JACK could be the right one. This Jackson colt was not beaten far when fifth on debut and his trainer(Gavin Smith) has been in piping hot form recently. Trainer Alan Greeff sends out DOMREMY with stable jockey Greg Cheyne aboard and this filly ran an improved race.

Verdict

DOMREMY formwise has a distinct edge and has easily the best chance. My Boy Jack seems the most likely to take advantage if the selection fails to deliver, while Perfect Timing is prominent among those with minor place claims first time out.

Verdict

Another tough race to find the winner. SEATTLE LILY lacks a strong finish but must have a chance in this field. DEAR MONIETTE ran a much improved race last week but tries the Polytrack for the first time. Alan Greeff has three in this race and the best of them could be DONA. This filly has lacked a finish in most of her starts but could be suited to this track and trip.

Verdict

DONA should be bang there but hasn't much room for error. Malinda could be the chief opposition having her first run, while Ita also looks good for a place first time up.

Verdict

CONTESS CANTABRIA looked an improved filly last week when runner-up and could go one better in this weak field. EESHARA is badly drawn but should be in the final shake-up. BERRY CRUSH has been unreliable in the past but could play a minor role. OHSOBRIGHT disappointed last week but has a place chance. TRUTH OF BEAUTY is capable of better than her last run and could go close.

Verdict

COUNTESS CANTABRIA is as good as ever judged on her latest effort and is arguably the one the others have to beat. Eeshara could be the main threat, while Truth Of Beauty is the third candidate for the three.

Verdict

It looks like the Polytrack is where SACRED TOUCH runs his best races and he was making late progress last week and is the one to beat over this longer distance. CONQUERING KING will need to find a few lengths to beat SACRED TOUCH but does have a place chance. KING JAVELINE may have needed his local debut and could improve. SUPREME SWORD is back in maiden company and can upset.

Verdict

SACRED TOUCH has recorded some excellent efforts in recent runs and will take the beating. Big Jay's makes most appeal among the rest, while Conquering King might be worth siding with for third.

Verdict

BEATABOUTTHEBUSH has found her best form again and it has been on this surface. She could prove hard to beat in conditions that suit her nicely. PEACH DELIGHT is unreliable but can pop up in the places. RED GRANITE needs to find a few lengths to beat the selection but could finish in the money. SMOKE AFFAIR is worse off at the weights for running behind the selection last time.

Verdict

BEATABOUTTHEBUSH has a healthy advantage formwise and is well up to winning this. Smokey Affair is the most prudent second choice, while Peach Delight looks the one for the minor money.

Verdict

DON'T STOP DANCING was not beaten far on her local debut but does try the Polytrack for the first time. BLUE RHONE SKY ran well last time on the turf and has a winning chance if repeating that run on this surface. FREMONT and FANTASY QUEST both like this surface and can earn some minor money. COWGIRLINTHESAND is improving and is not out of it. SEEKING WISDOM has a chance.

Verdict

JOKING DICE looks to have narrowly the best claims but has next to no margin for error. Russian Star is tough to ignore in the search for second, while Rendezvous comes into calculations for third place.

Verdict

An open looking contest. FAVOUR'S PRIDE can run well in a race like this. Alan Greeff has a decent hand with three runners and both CAPTAIN MARMALADE and CARBON OFFSET both have winning chances. COCK-A-HOOP has some fair form and could earn some money. DRAGON FLAME might be better on the turf but should still run very well once again. FIRSTIMESACHARM is doing well and can win.

Verdict

CARBON OFFSET has fewer question marks about him than the others but can't afford to put a foot wrong. Firstimesacharm earns the vote for second, while Valentinik is another with the potential to figure.

Verdict

FOR LUCK SAKE has a bad draw to deal with but will be doing his best in the closing stages. MINI LOUSHE is course and distance suited and should fight out the finish. SHINE LIKE A STAR is looking for a hat-trick and has every chance of doing so over a course and distance that suits. BARBARELLA NIGHTS lacks a strong finish but could earn some money. SEATTLE SPELL might place.

Verdict

VALENTINE'S GIRL is in a good spell of form and sets the bar, albeit not too high. For Luck Sake could emerge as the main danger, while Blizzard King also commands a closer look.
