Verdict

MIXED SIGNALS produced an eye-catching debut when 2nd over the course and distance. She makes most appeal of the raced runners and, with natural improvement, should be hard to beat. The biggest threat is likely to come from oneof a number of well-bred newcomers. AFRICAN DIAMOND, stable companions MULAN and POLLY'S DESTINY, ROCK TRIP and SHAMROCK WIND are of particular interest

Verdict

MIXED SIGNALS easily has the upper hand on form and shouldn't really be troubled. Over The Way is given the vote for second, while African Diamond is not out of it where the places are concerned first time out.

Verdict

FROZEN TUNE and THE SUIT have displayed useful ability and boasts form strong enough to contest the outcome. WATCH ME DAD made a smart debut in what appeared a strong maiden and with improvement can pose a threat. The same, however, could be said of RIVER BASIN and VENDEE GLOBE. Newcomers CARLTON HEIGHTS , CEDAR MAN and THE SULTANS BAZAAR are worth a market check.

Verdict

FROZEN TUNE is running well enough to merit close consideration but will need to be on song. The Suit seems the principal threat, while Watch Me Dad looks best of the rest.

J SmitsdorffDean Kannemeyer
Verdict

Well-related RUSSET AIR caught the eye on debut when course-and-distance 2nd and, with natural improvement, should be hard to beat. DYNAMITE JACK, EL CHEEPO and FAMOUS ORATOR have shown enough to earn a cheque but must improve to challenge for top honours. Of the newcomers, DUBULA, LINE EDITOR and stable companions HIDDEN INFLUENCE and THE SOLUTION are worth a market check.

Verdict

RUSSET AIR shaped encouragingly on debut and should be sharper still this time. Dynamite Jack appeals most of the remainder, while Famous Orator comes into calculations for third place.

Verdict

ETERNAL NIGHT and ALPHA SAPHIRE are long-time maidens with earning potential but appear vulnerable to less-exposed rivals. BLUE FLOWER finished ahead of the latter last time and should confirm. HELLO SUMMER appears held on form but has scope for improvement. However, two-year-old ROCKET GIRL has made smart progress racing around the turn and could have the measure of these.

Verdict

BLUE FLOWER is running really well right now and is the one they all have to beat. Rocket Girl is likely to pounce if the selection fails to deliver, while Eternal Night also demands scrutiny.

Verdict

Many with chances. AL WAHED made all when beating several of these last time and should be competitive again, but won't have things his own way. WHAT AWINNER finished in close attendance and could turn the tables with that comeback run under his belt. NORTHERN CORNER got going late to finish on their heels and should be in the mix too. FIRE WALKER and WESTERN STORM have claims

Verdict

FIRE WALKER took his form up another grade last time and is much the one to aim at. Hemmingway is the next best alternative, while Western Storm is another that merits respect.

Verdict

Last-start maiden winners JAILHOUSE ROCK and EARL OF WARWICK are progressive sorts who are bred to enjoy the extra. Both will have more to offer in their 3rd runs after a rest so they could fight out the finish. LEAGUE GAME wasnot disgraced in first run after gelding and will have more to offer. Stablecompanions MIDDLEMARCH and POWER TOWER are not without chances either.

Verdict

AFRICAN MESSIAH's recent starts have been likeable in general and he seems likely to take the beating. League Game can emerge best of the remainder, while Mr Lover Boy looks another that has to be reckoned with.

Verdict

Course-and-distance specialist TWILIGHT TRIP concedes weight to all but reverts to his optimum trip and drops in class, so should make a bold bid. CHATUCHAK was not disgraced in a Grade 3 behind a seriously good horse last timeand must have more to offer in this grade. GIMMIE A COHIBA is talented and from a better draw can reverse recent running with last-start winner PIRACY.

Verdict

GIMMIE A COHIBA looks marginally the pick of this bunch but has little leeway if anything goes wrong. Mega Secret ranks next amongst the remainder, while Chatuchak deserves some consideration too.

Verdict

Wide open and the Quartet should pay handsomely. Both BENDY BULLET and MISSSMARTY PANTS ran with merit on handicap debut. They should be competitive socould represent value and may be worth including as roving bankers. ELUSIVETOUCH and FOXY PRINCESS are in good form so warrant respect. QUEEN MOIRA, EXPEDITE, SPAM ALERT, BON BON and LOVE OF MY LIFE (-4kg!) have claims too.

Verdict

BON BON got back on track in her most recent race and should make a bold show. Love Of My Life rates the main opposition, while Foxy Princess is the other candidate for the three.
