Verdict

With nothing in the way of recent winning form to go on, a chance is taken that VAULTED SON confirms his recent superiority over Mummi's Hope and Yodeling Honey, given he now has a run in 2017 under his belt. One Fast Sarava knows how to win and his latest second suggested his turn is drawing close once more.

Verdict

GLITTER N' JAZZ has been contesting stronger races and showed plenty of pace when second two starts ago so this drop in distance shouldn't inconvenience him. He can force Famous Fighter to settle for a supporting role again, and the latter may not even confirm latest form with Silver Bop. Uncle Walter would win this easily on last year's early-season form but has clearly had his issues.

Verdict

Man In Demand had Touch Of Midas and Timber Crossing in arrears when starting his career with a most encouraging second, and the step up in distance should prompt further improvement. However, LITTLE LIES keeps hitting the crossbar, getting closest to a breakthrough most recently, and returning to a mile can help her register a deserved success.

Verdict

LA DAMA's debut effort will have given connections plenty of encouragement because she only gave way in the closing stages and had Brittany's Beauty and Poquito Rose behind her. She is fully expected to go one better, unless Maxima Never Late and Grady's Lady are anything out of the ordinary.

Verdict

Few would begrudge Papa's Paisley a success but he may have to settle for a supporting role yet again, this time behind MARTY WHO. Loren Cox's charge almost backed up last month's victory when touched off a couple of weeks later, and he is worth sticking with. Wild Command and Expensive Candy merit respect too.

Verdict

Edward Closutton can improve new acquisitions so better is expected from both Wild Indigo and Storm's Fable. Quick Warrior can usually be relied upon to run his race but the safest option is ARROSHOT because he was only denied by a neck in this sort of company prior to struggling in a maiden special weight.

Verdict

EXPLOSIVE KITTEN hasn't been beaten far in a couple of slightly stronger claimers, and the drop in both class and distance is expected to have the desired effect. Horse Name Red is the obvious danger on the back of a couple of second placings, with Midnight Haven the pick of the remainder.

VAN DAMME had Grantson a couple of positions behind when third at Thistledown last month and he appears to be steadily progressing this campaign. Highly tried on occasion, he sets the standard in this company and is preferred to Balk, who should now be at his peak following two runs at Presque Isle.

Verdict

Keypartner got the job done well on her first run at this venue but meets a different calibre of opponent in VIRGEN MORENA. Leandro Moreno's mare has been second in a couple of more competitive claimers and she might only have to repeat the level of those performances to go one better. Li'lbito'gold will appreciate the return to a route.
