Verdict

SASSY ROSE had Seatalpha back in fourth when three-parts of a length second in a similar track and trip event last month and she can go one better with normal luck. The drop in both trip and grade gives Neat N Teide a definite chance while Bella Ronski cannot be ruled out either.

Verdict

MANGITA has been in cracking form, winning two of her last three starts, and she might be able to strike again whilst the iron is hot. Queen Of Tequila must enter calculations after winning cosily on her reappearance, while four-time distance winner Charming Starlet will appreciate the drop in class.

HOT ENCOUNTER was only half-a-length off completing the hat-trick when second here last time, a race in which Irish Sky (third), Ride Into The Sky (sixth) and Playing Through (eighth) all finished behind, and he is fancied to justify favouritism today. Irish Sky can take second ahead of Oso Strong.

Verdict

NOWHERE MAN made quite the impression when scoring over slightly further here latest and, although this represents a step up in class, he might be able to follow up. The pair most feared are Native Chieftain and Gabo's Macondo, who finished second and third respectively when clashing in a similar track and trip event recently.
