Verdict

There would be no more deserving winner than the consistent Super Artist but he has developed a knack of finding at least one too strong, whereas Roll Channeled, Vinny Bag O Donuts and MONEYWISE all arrive on the back of wins, and the latter can supplement that Charles Town success. Stormcoast is interesting on his first outing for a new barn.

My Word Over Yours broke through at the 19th attempt but while her confidence will be buoyed, LATE ACTION has a touch more quality. The daughter of Morning Line has never won over a mile and faded last time, but paid the price for forcing the issue and will appreciate a more patient approach. Ristan is considered too.

Verdict

BLUEMOONOFSARATOGA is used to keeping much stronger company than this and has run well at Finger Lakes the last twice. It is at Mountaineer that she excels, though, and she can take her record here to five wins from seven appearances. Cal's Legend has had the measure of Bella Figlia recently and looks the chief danger.

SILVER ENERGY fared better than Tavernier Gems, Trymeonthegrass and Party With Marty when third here, and didn't get the rub of the green on his only subsequent appearance. He can bounce back but Tavernier Gems doesn't have too much ground to make up on him, and Classy Nekia can also play a part.

Verdict

GLORIOUS RIDE was found wanting in a stronger contest most recently but had previously made all over track and trip, with Stormin Margaret back in third. She can confirm that superiority and regain the winning thread. Arch Legacy arrives in fine fettle, while Gales Of November steps up in class in search of a four-timer.

OPERA NITE found only one too strong in a $50k stake at Charles Town and a reproduction of that sort of performance should be enough to see him home in front here. Blue Plaid disposed of Rescue Five over 4 1/2f but the placings could be reversed at this distance. Jeffery Scott accounted for Owen's Mo last time but has been beaten by the selection before.

Verdict

E Z GAIN has hit the crossbar on both outings since moving to Mountaineer and there has been plenty of encouragement to take from the performances so he gets the nod. Little Paisa has been a decent fourth the last twice and won't be far away, and Mr P is gradually working out what the game is all about.
