Verdict

BUCKLEBERRY has shown promise and rates the form choice here. He does switch from poly to turf though. CALVARY is speedy and showed his well being in aTrial last time. He has room for improvement. LESLIES PATHTOFAME should have won by now and acquitted himself well at this venue last time. PANTSULA is another that has been knocking at the door. KRISHNIES JET can improve.

Verdict

BUCKLEBERRY was a bit of a let down when favourite last time, but gets the vote again. Calvary could provide the chief threat, while Pantsula also demands respect.

Verdict

STAR IN THE SKY ran on well on the poly even though showing signs of inexperience. She is a well bred Silvano filly that should keep on improving. RIPTIDE is a pacey type that could get away at Scottsville. She should appreciate this shorter trip to the mile she ran over last time. FLEEK is the older runner with decent form. She should enjoy the trip.

Verdict

FLEEK looks marginally the best of this bunch but any trouble could put paid to her chance. Riptide is fancied to beat the rest, while Under The Rose is prominent among those with minor place claims.

Verdict

WHITE LIGHTNING sort of lived up to his name last time flashing up from the clouds. He is obviously a fair sort in the making and if going the longer trip can win this. ARROW'S MARK showed he is also a forward type catching the the eye in that race as well. He has the better draw. Older runner PRINCE CHARMING finished ahead of them and could confirm. More can improve.

Verdict

PRINCE CHARMING started favourite last time out, but should make the most of this opening. White Lightning has the best claims of the remainder, while Ninjinsky's Son also commands a second look.

Verdict

The start of tough handicaps. BRIGHTEYEBUSHYTAIL showed good promise earlier but has been lightly raced since. He was gelded recently and needed his last few so is one to keep an eye on. TWISTER VORTEX also needed it last time but more importantly he is back at the track he won at. Respect. EMPEROR NIARCHOS and CHANGING SEASONS can complete hat tricks. REACTIVE has a say.

Verdict

BLING SWING continues in form and just about gets the nod in this company. Gunner can also play a leading part, while Emperor Niarchos is another to bear in mind.

Verdict

Almost all have shown talent and being pitted with differing weights makes it very competitive. BONNIE DAWN put in a winning bid last time. If she jumps well she can score. BOEING CITY is one of two youngsters that can improve.She is very speedy. RANI was flying and the line came in time for Just Vogue who has won again since. GEOGRAPHE BAY would be deserving as well.

Verdict

TOUCH OF MAGIC headed the market on her latest run, but edges it as the selection once again. Bonnie Dawn will probably give the selection most to think about, while Geographe Bay also commands consideration.

Verdict

If the Just Vogue form line stands up in the previous race ROSIE BUBBLES will come in for support. As discussed the form line has produced a subsequent winner. WILD RENDEZVOUS won a hard fought contest and may be improving after gelding. LONDON KNIGHT is back at the track he won his last race at. BLAZE OF SILK and EDDIE SWEAT can surprise.

Verdict

HONEST PRINCE gets a narrow vote but can't afford for much to go wrong. London Knight also comes into the equation, while Rosie Bubbles also commands a closer look.

Verdict

ELUSIVE WOLF has been running on strongly. He loves this track and should go close in this. GOOD TO GIVE can beat the former at the weights as his talented apprentice claims 2,5kg. He is in good form but along with most could have a battle if ROYAL RUSTLER improves on his last run. He won well and may not be stopping again. ROY'S MAGIC and MOON BIRD have claims.

Verdict

ROYAL RUSTLER is running well enough to take this but has little margin for error. Roy's Magic seems the most likely to pounce if the selection fails to deliver, while Panza deserves some consideration too.

Verdict

It is wide open with it being a lower division handicap. But SINGH IS KING was eye catching last time and is holding form. He could get his consistency rewarded. ITDAWNEDONME is the highest rated horse as he carries top weight and he did find his last two a bit short. He could be the one with improvement to come. SILVER CENT found form and has won this track and trip.

Verdict

SINGH IS KING has very good form claims and there's little point looking elsewhere for the winner. Pirogue seems the most likely to capitalise if the selection fails to deliver, while Copper Pot is another who could figure.
