Verdict

VERISIMILITUDE was making his debut for a new yard and first run after gelding and he made vast improvement. He is raced again quickly and must be ready to show even more. He can score. BLUEMOONRISING looked the likely winner trying distance but was pipped on the post. Expect another honest showing on the poly. DR HENRY is lightly raced and did well from a wide draw last.

Verdict

BLUEMOONRISING got back on track on his most recent start and has claims second to none. Dr Henry is probably the biggest danger, while Verisimilitude is another who could figure.

Verdict

ROY'S FLUTE has had quite a few races in a short space of time and is proving hardy. She can get to the post first against these but has a wide draw again. AIM FOR THE STARS ran a much better race last time and can only improve if taking to the surface. TOMMASO was not disgraced as she was green round the bend last. The form of that race is proving strong. More can score.

Verdict

ROY'S FLUTE has put together a solid series of efforts lately and is just about the pick in this field. Tommaso is the pick of the rest, while Aim For The Stars is another that merits respect.

Verdict

ROY'S VOGUE put a moderate post maiden race (she was coughing and short) behind her when running on well to finish second. She also had excuses in that race and can make amends here. INTO THE GROOVE popped up again and she also had things go wrong. Her stable is in form, expect a good effort. ROY'S PONY loves this track and with PEGGY'S DREAM and ORELIA should be there.

Verdict

INTO THE GROOVE is the one to beat on overall form and is hard to look past. Orelia arguably sets the standard among the remainder, while Roy's Pony is one to bear in mind as well.

Verdict

EXPRESSO MARTINI is holding form and would be deserving. She has a better draw today. BURNBURRY won in good style and could follow up. She has more to do at the weights and from a wide draw though. MAGIC FLAME showed her best form last time and can bag another race if holding form. She has a wide draw to overcome. SITIA and MAYBE have definite outside chances.

Verdict

SITIA appeals best of these by a narrow margin but has next to no room for error. Expresso Martini is another for the shortlist, while Willowgrange is another to bear in mind.

Verdict

SPRING IN SEATTLE is holding form can score an overdue second career win. She looks to have just needed her last run after rest. MISS VARLICIOUS met a fair sort in her penultimate and the franked the form winning a good race last time. She has a 4kg claimer up and must be considered again. PRINCESS ANALIA should appreciate being back over her best trip. She is in good form.

Verdict

VICTORY TRIP's recent runs have had a lot to like about them and she is up to winning this. Princess Analia seems to only have second to aim at, while Exquisite Eight has a good shout of a share of the minor money.

Verdict

COLOUR YOUR DREAMS is back after trying her luck in the West Cape. She did improve in her last race there and that kind of form entitles her to big respect in this. STOCKADE showed something like her best form last time. She can step up on that but this is stronger. LA SUERTE DE MATAR just needs to get the timing right. She has a top pilot up as well. SEATOPS can get into it.

Verdict

COLOUR YOUR DREAMS looks marginally the best of this bunch but this is an open race. Stockade can emerge best of the remainder, while La Suerte De Matar can't be ruled out.

Verdict

HOMETOWN HERO has been supported but made improvement when going the sprint trip. He has drawn well again and can open his account with a little more improvement. SHANTYTOWN is better than his last race. His previous form entitles him to respect in this company. DE LAGO'S FUTURE has not drawn as well as the above mentioned but has form to be right there.

Verdict

SHANTYTOWN's recent efforts have been likeable on the whole and he looks the one they all have to beat. Emerald Victory can beat the rest, while Hometown Hero commands respect as well.

Verdict

The last race is wide open fillies and mares lower division sprint. It should pay to go wide in the exotic bets. GO WITH FLO is the form choice and she does have a persuasive rider up. NORTHERN STORM is knocking hard at the door and the drop in trip may not deter her. Her stable has been sending out winners. FAIR ANTONIA, RUSSIAN GIRL and ZINZARA should grab prizes.

Verdict

INYATI has a little in hand but will need to steer clear of any trouble. Sarabi is marginally preferred for second, while Northern Storm might be hard to keep out of the minor money.
