Verdict

WINTER FIVE has finished 2nd in both starts with blinkers on and shouldn't be long in winning. MUMTAZ finished that rival when on debut last time but should pose more of a threat this time around. CELESTIAL STORM would have needed her last start and can get closer too. BELIEVETHISBEAUTY and NEGMA have had better chances but should be competitive nonetheless.

Verdict

CELESTIAL STORM has a very good chance on form and there's little point looking elsewhere for the winner. Believethisbeauty is the most prudent second option, while Crowded House may be the one for third.

Verdict

Veteran FRIENDLY TIBBS is weighted to turn the tables on A NEW DAWN but the latter has been lightly raced and is more progressive, so could improve further to confirm superiority. MAC DE LAGO was found wanting over further last time but should pose more of a threat over this trip. WAITING FOR RAIN andLOADSHEDDER are capable of making their presence felt too.

Verdict

FRIENDLY TIBBS is holding his form well and has a fair chance. Loadshedder is a solid alternative, while Speed Of Africa edges it for third.

Verdict

Smashing contest. SANTA CLARA got going late when chasing home CORAL BAY in a feature over 1200m last time. Both are bred to enjoy the extra but the former is fancied to turn the table over this trip. Stable companion NOUS VOILA will also have more to offer this distance. Highly rated debut winner HELEN'S IDEAL is open to any amount of improvement and can also pose a threat.

Verdict

SANTA CLARA is just about the pick in this line up and should prove hard to catch. Nous Voila could provide the sternest opposition, while Coral Bay also requires a closer look.

Verdict

Unbeaten ONE WORLD represents the jockey-trainer combination that won this in 2017 (with subsequent Guineas winner Tap O' Noth). He concedes weight to all but could be up to the task. FRANK LLOYD WRIGHT has become costly to follow and appears held by MR CRUMFORD, although both should enjoy the extra. Debut winner CHARLES could be anything. WATCH ME DAD has earning potential.

Verdict

FRANK LLOYD WRIGHT appeals best of these by a narrow margin but it's an open race. Mr Crumford is a solid alternative, while Sailor Sam deserves respect as well.

Verdict

BRAVE MOVE would have had this on her agenda after the decision was made not to take her to KZN. She is above average, progressive and probably better than rated - so rates the one to beat. CAPE CHARLOTTE and PLATINUM CLASS ranwell in a similar contest last time AND should be competitive again. LADY OF THE HOUSE and CALL TO ACCOUNT are weighted to run well. Others can earn too

Verdict

CALL TO ACCOUNT took a huge step forward last time and is arguably the one the others have to beat. Captain's Flame can also play a major role, while Cape Charlotte is another to take into acount.

Verdict

FRESNAYE returned to winning ways when getting the better of her own sex over 1600m last time. She is slung in on these terms and probably better over this trip so could well follow up. INTOTHELIMELIGHT is also distance suited so should pose the biggest threat. Progressive DYNASTY'S BLOSSOM is held by that rival but could get a look in with further improvement.

Verdict

FRESNAYE will prove hard to catch if not held back by this different trip. Intothelimelight could emerge as the main threat, while Dynasty's Blossom commands a closer look as well.

Verdict

The absence of Rainbow Bridge will be welcomed by most of these, none more so than well-weighted duo DOUBLEMINT and ANCESTRY. Both should be competitive if effective over this trip. ROCK MY SOUL has no stamina issues and pose athreat. SPRING MAN and LOVE HAPPENS also have the form to make their presence felt. BALLAD OF THE SEA is a progressive stayer with claims too.

Verdict

DOUBLEMINT sets a very tall standard if not troubled by this different trip. Love Happens is probably the chief threat, while Spring Man has a good shout of a share of the minor money.

Verdict

CAVALLERIA relished the step up to this trip when trouncing her rivals last time. She may concede a few lengths at the start but does her best work late and, if not too far out of her ground, could have the measure of this field under a 4kg claimer who knows her well. SHANGRI LA and CHESTNUT'S CHARM should get closer on these terms. SISTER SOOZIE and SOLANA have claims too.

Verdict

SHANGRI LA looks to have marginally the best credentials but hasn't much room for error. Keep The Faith is the likeliest runner-up, while Symphony looks another that has to be reckoned with.

Verdict

Wide open. STRIKEITLIKEAMATCH was outclassed in a stronger race last time but could fare better here. READY STEADY GO was collared late by a useful sort over track and trip recently, and should go close. BWANA needed his last and will have more to offer. Stable companions HOOVES OF THUNDER, WHAT A SUMMER and JOHNNY BLACK are capable. POWER GRID and DALIBHUNGA have claims too.

Verdict

VICTORIOUS CAPTAIN showed much improved form on his latest run and will take all the beating. Dalibhunga is the most pragmatic second option, while Ready Steady Go is also in the running for some place money at least.
