Verdict

Starling's Law rates a threat to all now he has his sights lowered, while Raise The Mast has proved consistency personified in recent months and ought to be thereabouts. However, MYSTIC TIGER was beaten only five lengths when finishing fourth in a $100k event over an extended mile at Indiana earlier this month and a reproduction of that effort could suffice.

Verdict

SHIPKA appeared to have plenty in hand when making a winning debut over an extended mile here last month and she can prove herself above average by maintaining her unbeaten record. Honeymoon Cruise has her sights lowered after finishing fifth over an extended six furlongs at Charles Town and rates the biggest danger ahead of Yenom Neve.

Verdict

This will not take much winning and THIRTY TWO DEGREES may prove good enough to land the spoils after she posted a solid effort to finish third over track and trip last month. Holy Ekati has displayed enough to suggest she can land an event of this nature and is interesting on her debut for new connections, with Pleasant Truth the pick of the remainder.

Verdict

PINK RUBANS has won three of her last six starts and lost nothing in defeat when runner-up over five furlongs here last month. This extra furlong will play to her strengths and a bold bid seems assured. Kentucky Dancer returned to form when second here last month and rates the biggest danger ahead of Fly And Flutter.

Verdict

Celtic Moon invariably runs his race around here and isn't passed over lightly, while Really Boppin was in decent form prior to his latest disappointing effort and could bounce back over this longer trip. However, CHURCH MONKEY has finished runner-up on his last three outings and appears to have been found the ideal opportunity to go one better.

Verdict

PADRE sauntered clear to score by nearly six lengths over an extended mile here earlier this month and is difficult to oppose after such a dominant performance. Mt. Katahdin drops significantly in grade and it will be disappointing if he failed to make his presence felt, with Shackleson the pick for minor honours.

Verdict

AMERICAN COTTON finished fourth in a stronger event over an extended four furlongs here last month and he could prove difficult to beat back in calmer waters. Mr. Fuzzybottom wasn't at his best last time but his penultimate second reads well in the context of this race, while Present Course excels around here and a return to this venue looks a positive.
