Verdict

NAZARETH had a couple of these behind when runner-up over 5 1/2f here latest and shaped as though the extra would suit, so is taken to go one better today. Miss Bliss and the downgraded Asem are feared most.

Verdict

Awepollonia sets the standard on form in the book but the bar isn't set too high and it could pay to side with a newcomer. Pretty Hussar and Be Lifted Up look the pick of them, with preference for the latter who represents a yard in excellent form here.

The switch to this surface sparked a big improvement from TRAFFIC THIEF as he romped home in a decent maiden and he is taken to continue his progress with another victory today. Dangers abound, however, in the shape of Hackleton and the downgraded My Farmer.

BUCK DUANE got within half a length of landing a more valuable maiden over this trip when second at Santa Anita in January and should take some beating here if fully wound up for his return. If he needs the run then Imagineiamfastest looks most likely to capitalise.

Psychedelicat impressed in his maiden victory latest but this is tougher and slight preference is for R CHA CHA, who wasn't beaten far in third when dropped into this grade latest and is capable of better. Zapana's Game was only just back in fourth that day and is also considered.

Verdict

From The Distance should come on for his debut and contends on the downgrade, but the more experienced TWISTED ROAD also has his sights lowered considerably and sets the standard on his runner-up effort two starts ago. Rebel On The Run made the frame in a similar event here latest and can have his say again.
