Verdict

GRIZZARD tired late on the turf last time out. He has done better on the sand and should contest the finish. VALUE AT RISK is battling to regain form but could play a minor role. SPACE WARRIOR returns from a lengthy break but could improve trying the sand for the first time.DIRECTOR'S ROCK makes his local debut and it could be a winning one with Muzi Yeni aboard him.

Verdict

DIRECTOR'S ROCK is in decent form right now and just about sets the standard. Catchthemaster seemingly poses the biggest danger, while Grizzard also demands a closer look.

Verdict

KARIBA SUNRISE is unreliable but does like this course and distance and could finish in the money. SAVAGE GARDEN is battling to win but might place. PAMUNKEY tends to lack a finish but might place. DIAMOND GLACE could improve trying the sand for the first time. SO GOOD was only sixth on debut but couldmake vast improvement. DAME JUDITH likes this track and distance and can win

Verdict

KARIBA SUNRISE has been hard to fault in recent starts and has fair claims. L'orfeo is probably the sternest threat, while Dame Judith should also be considered.

Verdict

PAVAROTTI PASSION is better than his last run would suggest and has a winning chance in this line-up. MIESQUE'S SPEED has yet to win after 22 starts but could place. ALI PASHA returns from a break but does have a winning chance in this line-up. PANTHER STRIKE would probably prefer further but might play a minor role. CALLS TO HEAVEN makes his local debut and it can win this.

Verdict

PAVAROTTI PASSION is the one to beat judged on the form book and ought to win comfortably. Calls To Heaven may be the best bet to chase the selection home, while Kissmebackfoot comes into calculations for third place.

Verdict

DOUBLE DUAL is clearly capable of better than his last run would suggest and does have a winning chance in this line-up. ASSISTED TAKE OFF was disappointing last time out but is best judged on two nice wins before that. ROCKEFELLER is only tiring late in his recent runs and one of these days he will keep running to win. TRILLION STARS was making good progress last time-go close

Verdict

TRILLION STARS is as good as ever judged on his latest start and has decent claims. Double Dual also comes into the equation, while Rockefeller also demands consideration.

Verdict

ROYAL MASTER quickened nicely when winning last time out and could follow up in this weak looking field.. RICH APPROVAL is unreliable but can win if showing his best side. NICE CHAP has some fair recent form and does have a winning chance. DOUBLE RANSOM could pop up in a minor place. IL PALIO has been unreliable but is well drawn and could cause an upset. Watch AIR SALUTE.

Verdict

ROYAL MASTER has put together a solid series of recent efforts and is up to winning this. Rich Approval appeals most among the rest, while Nice Chap is another to come into the reckoning.

Verdict

TOP SALUTE has won three of her last six starts and does have a winning chance if allowed to lead. STRATEGIC MOVE can improve for her new trainer. SULTRY won easily last time out and from pole position draw should have a winning chance. SEA BEAN is capable of an upset. JO MAMBO improved to win her latest start and is clearly not out of it. EUAN ME is in good form and can win.

Verdict

EUAN' ME is probably the best recommendation but it's an open race. Top Salute is the most pragmatic second choice, while Sultry can scrap it out for third.

Verdict

JUST ASK ME ran a much improved race last time out and must be considered. BONGO DANCE is capable of doing better and must be respected. BISHOP OF BOMBAY has ability and should go close to winning a race like this. SOVIET COSMONAUT has been in good form this year winning three times and must be considered. ROCK OF ASIA made his local debut and does have a winning chance.

Verdict

SOVIET COSMONAUT is just about best of these all things considered but will need to steer clear of any trouble. Bishop Of Bombay makes most appeal among the rest, while Bongo Dance shouldn't be far away.

Verdict

PILLAR OF HERCULES makes his local debut and can improve. PHIL'S POWER is in good form and should fight out the finish once again. ALL OF ME likes thistrack and is clearly not out of it. LAURENT DU VAR is not reliable but could finish in the money once again. LAKE WASHINGTON made all to win easily last week and can follow up and win this race as well. ARCTIC BLAST could earn.

Verdict

PHIL'S POWER just about appeals most in this field but hasn't much room for error. Laurent Du Var looks to have most to offer of the rest, while All Of Me also demands consideration.

Verdict

SATIN ROCK is unreliable but might place. TUNE THE SCOPE is unreliable but could finish in the money. WHAT A SARAH was full of running when shedding her maiden tag and may have at least one more win in her so deserves respect. JUST AFRICA has been holding form over this course and distance and should fight out the finish. THEWAYWEMAKEM makes his local debut and can win.

Verdict

JUST AFRICA has been operating at a good level lately and should give backers a run for their money. Adi Speed is probably the chief threat, while What A Sarah also seems unlikely to be far away.
