Verdict

AMAJORY was just touched off by useful Mable Syrup in her penultimate and if not troubled by a breathing problem should get off the mark. Leon Erasmus has 4 runners, MISSQUOTED, FLYING FALCON, JAUNITA and BELLATRIX and any one of them could capitalise if AMAJORY fluffs her lines. CANDELA enjoyed the blinkers back on and shouldn't be far off them. Watch the first-timers.

Verdict

POORMANSLADY is reasonably interesting first time out in a winnable race and looks the one to side with. Regal Graduation is the most likely threat having her first run, while Flying Falcon edges it so far as third place is concerned.

Verdict

HIGHLAND HERO was backed on debut but was beaten narrowly through inexperience. He should make amends. HE'S GREAT has been knocking and should be thereabouts. FEARLESS FRED races before this - watch the form. WHITE WINTER has been close up to date and is backed up by SIR SPENCER and newcomer DIVINE ODYSSEY - watch the betting.

Verdict

HIGHLAND HERO has a very good chance on what he has achieved so far and sets the bar high. Seventh Son can also take a hand, while newcomer Divine Odyssey Son is not out of it for third place.

Verdict

Not a strong field. TANGO MAN is only having his 4th start, has a good draw and scope for improvement. He is coupled with newcomer ANCHOR who has a wide draw. Watch the betting. Also drawn poorly is long time battler DANCING REBEL who could still win in this field. WAR LEGEND tries further now and could be the joker in the pack. SEA LORD has form but is unreliable.

Verdict

ANCHOR makes plenty of appeal making his racecourse debut in what isn't a good race and might well be the one to go along with. Peter The Wailer is the pick of the rest, while Monty Python looks best of the rest.

Verdict

AFRICA'S SKY drifted in the betting when running on strongly to get close in second. She will come on heaps and should not be bothered by the extra. ANGELIC has been in the money in all 4 starts to date and won't go down without a fight. CROWN COURT was slightly disappointing last time but should be a lot fitter now. YES WE DO is improving and with GRAB THE GAVEL could earn.

Verdict

ANGELIC has been hard to fault in recent starts and has fair claims. Africa's Sky has the strongest claims of the others, while Take Hold deserves some consideration as well first time up.

Verdict

MISSOURI wasn't disgraced in the Dingaans last time and could resume winning ways. The drift in betting last time showed that WHEEL OF TIME needed the outing and he should do better now. Stable mate ROYAL CRUSADE needed his last run and will come on. ALSSAKHRA finished distressed last time and a better showing is expected. FORAFEWDOLLARSMORE can do better.

Verdict

AMERICAN INDIAN just about looks the one to be with but will need to be firing on all cylinders. Missouri is most likely the leading challenger, while Double Mink commands respect as well.

Verdict

Lightly raced MISS BULSARA needed her last run and could chalk up her 2nd victory in this her 7th start. SAVETHEBESTFORLAST should be cherry-ripe and should give a good account of herself. On form there should be nothing to choose between CURBSTONE SHUFFLE and SPRING POETRY and either could pull it off. A P CHANEL could win fresh.

Verdict

SPRING POETRY gets a narrow vote but will need to steer clear of any trouble. Curbstone Shuffle will probably give the selection most to think about, while Vul Indlela enters calculations for third place.
