Verdict

SKY MAGICIAN made a most encouraging start to his career when beating Grand River to the runner-up berth over track and trip, with the disappointing Hall Pass back in the ruck, and natural improvement should be enough for Michael Trombetta's gelding to go one better. Quality Matters is the pick of an interesting crop of newcomers.

Verdict

RECONSIDER IT has had plenty of opportunities but she has kept fair company at the big New York tracks and there is a distinct lack of in-form fillies among the opposition. Pass A Mento was a position ahead of Tilaka when second on her last visit here but has since struggled at Timonium, and Baltimore Babe also has a disappointment to atone for.

Verdict

Malibu Surprise has left Graham Motion during her time on the sidelines but is dangerous if fit enough, while Sugar Shack will appreciate the return to Laurel following a lacklustre Monmouth display. FREE KITTY has picked up her share of minor honours at Aqueduct and Belmont, though, and a reproduction of any of those performances on the back of a short holiday should be good enough.

Verdict

Matador and Bungalow both arrive on hat-trick missions but they have their sights raised and could find QUALIFY too strong. Louis Bosley's veteran's latest form figures don't inspire too much confidence but he has kept better company than this. Gotham News stayed on into third over 6f last time and is more effective at this distance.

Lill Mave is also on the class drop and could be the primary danger, ahead of Artiful Move and Running Tide.

The complexion of this race will change if it is switched to the main track, but SILVER DAGGER has gone from strength to strength since reverting to turf at Delaware and is fancied to complete the four-timer. Charlie Mops backed up a Tampa success at Presque Isle, while Brickyard Kitten is another to arrive in the midst of a winning spree.

Martywiththeparty is another used to mixing it in stronger company.

SCOOP N NAILZ is making slow-but-steady progress and his latest effort to take fourth at Timonium suggests a race of this nature is within his compass, and the rise from 4f suits as well. Pekin keeps finding one too strong at Charles Town and may have to settle for minor honours, with Dove Dynasty potentially a bigger threat.

Verdict

Smart Two A T made every post a winning one at Timonium but he will do well to repel the finishing burst of STAY ON POINT, who has twice gone close since breaking his duck at Delaware in July. Federal Walk has been out of sorts but takes a drop in grade so could bounce back.

Verdict

VALADIER has made the frame on each of his four appearances so far, and he went closest to winning on his most recent start at Timonium. He probably doesn't even have to improve to go one better and is preferred to Bindlor and Worktab.
