Verdict

TYRIAN and HEY BOY are closely matched on recent form. Both performed well after gelding last time and should have more to offer. GALLAGHER showed pace then tired over further last time so could be better suited to this trip. FLYING ARROW has been disappointing but has scope to improve. Newcomers GIVE ME DYNAMITE and VIA SALARIA are by top sires out of Grade 1 winners. Watch!

Verdict

VIA SALARIA holds a definite advantage on form and ought to win comfortably. Tyrian looks to have most to offer of the rest, while Gallagher looks the one for the minor money.

Verdict

ELUSIVE VICTOR will not be long in winning having shown promise in both starts behind Snaith-trained winners. That yard saddles a useful coupling but preference is for highly regarded KNIGHTS TEMPLAR who should improve with experience under stable jock Fourie. RIVER THAMES improved last time and will have more to come. DHARMA and CONSUL OF WAR have the form to be competitive.

Verdict

KNIGHTS TEMPLAR just about gets the nod in this field and has leading claims. River Thames should be thereabouts as well, while Consul Of War enters calculations for third place.

Verdict

Good maiden. BELLA SUMMER has finished close-up in both starts around the turn and should feature prominently from the ace. SPRING BURST attracted betting support in both starts and ran well on both occasions. She could have more to offer over this trip. CONTESSA'S GLANCE has the form and race fitness to pose a threat. AU REVOIR (draw) and BOUNDLESS DEEP (fitness) are capable

Verdict

BOUNDLESS DEEP was the beaten market choice on her most recent run, but gets the nod again. Bella Summer also seems unlikely to be far away, along with Contessa's Glance.

Verdict

Tricky but improving 3YOs could edge older hard-knocking rivals, despite conceding weight. GRANDIFLORA is weighted to confirm recent form over KAWAKAMI, but the latter has more scope and can improve to turn the tables. SECRET DEPTHS is above average and can reverse recent form with that rival on these terms. SANS REGRETS, GO SNOW GIRL GO and TATTOOED ROCKER have more to offer.

Verdict

AMAROSA has fewer question marks about her than the others but has little room for error. Sans Regrets is the percentage call to finish second , while Silver Streamer is the tentative selection for third.

Verdict

Smashing contest worthy of Grade 1 status. EYES WIDE OPEN and ROCKET COUNTDOWN resume after rewarding 3YO seasons and could play a role if race ready. A NEW DAWN and SILVER MAPLE are unexposed so could pop up under galloping weights. We've not seen the best of unbeaten RAINBOW BRIDGE and he should confirm recent form with FIFTY CENTS, COPPER FORCE and HORIZON on these terms.

Verdict

SILVER MAPLE is quite easily the best of these on form and is going to be tough to beat. Man About Town is the most prudent second choice, while Eyes Wide Open is not out of it for third place.

Verdict

Open. The Snaith yard's four-pronged attack is led by CASUAL DIAMOND (2nd last year), but stablemates TOWNSHIP MELODY and ANGEL'S TRUMPET could get a look in too. OSTINATO and TOO PHAT TO FLY are picks of the Kotzen-trained quartet. MAGICAL WONDERLAND and CALL TO ACCOUNT are capable but have fitness concerns and big weights to shoulder. ANIME could surprise for raiding Drier.

Verdict

OSTINATO has a fair amount in hand on form and has leading claims. Township Melody is a sound alternative, while Straat-Kind might be worth siding with for third.

Verdict

Intriguing race as the pace could prove decisive. Progressive BALLAD OF THE SEA was 2nd to subsequent Algoa Cup winner Magnificent Seven in a similar contest on his comeback. He had SISTER SOOZIE and BENJAN behind that day and should confirm on these terms. He is closely matched with ROCK MY SOUL on earlier form, so respect that rival. JAILHOUSE ROCK is bred to enjoy this trip

Verdict

BALLAD OF THE SEA is difficult to oppose on what he has shown and is the one they all have to beat. Benjan is tough to ignore where second place is concerned, while Rock My Soul has a place chance as well.

Verdict

The form of the race won by Silver Maple should be worth siding with and a big performance from that runner in the Cape Mile would strengthen the cases here of SPECTRA FORCE and CAPE XTREME, although both could struggle to reverse the form with improving 3YO HUDOO MAGIC. Last-start winner BEN-HUR warrants respect, as does top-weight CHATUCHAK who should have more to offer now.

Verdict

HOLY LAND showed much improved form last time and has strong claims. Spectra Force is probably the chief opposition, while Chatuchak also requires scrutiny.
