Verdict

EMMY SHIMMY had Summer Sable a long way behind her when second on debut and although she didn't build on that next time, it came in a $30k race and this isn't nearly as competitive. Thirster was a place and two lengths in front of Zemo when runner-up just before Christmas and looks the primary threat.

Verdict

J K'S COUNTRY produced a strong finish to claim top honours over track and trip in a maiden claimer here at the beginning of the month, and a repeat of that performance might be good enough in a slightly uncompetitive heat. Fairway Lane showed his appreciation for the return to sprinting by taking second over 6f, and Kiss My Note is another to consider.

Verdict

Inplay has improved since trying a route, making the frame three times, but she is vulnerable to one of the less-exposed fillies. One that fits the bill is ELLIE'S STROLL, who lacked a change of gear on her debut over 6f but still ran well for a long way and can improve for the experience, as well as the extra quarter-mile. Solitaire Kitten and At Last My Love also have their sights lowered.

PUSH COME TO SHOVE has few miles on the clock for one her age and put it all together when making all over 6f here. She is taken to follow up, but Eloquent Moment also likes to force the issue and won't give her an easy lead. Parking Ticket beat Eloquent Moment two starts back and may be the one to pick up the pieces should they cut each other's throats up front.

The complexion of this race changes if Marching Fire lines up but she is only second reserve so the vote goes to OUR CAUSE, who showed speed over routes at Monmouth and Gulfstream last year and has been found a good opportunity for her comeback. Go Stellaire is talented enough to take a hand, and Ethyl Ether could have a say too.
