Verdict

SILVER SPINE should be at peak fitness now and should be involved in the finish. KING OF THE BAY comes off a rest but the form has been franked and he should be in the shake-up. Filly FORGIMME is coupled with a few but appears stable elect but if TILL DAWN is ready it could be a different matter. RAGNAROK could get into the picture. Watch first-timer LIMESTONE MASS.

Verdict

FORGIMME is quite clearly in front of these formwise and is the one to beat. Till Dawn looks to have most to offer of the rest, while Silver Spine enters calculations for third place.

Verdict

TICKTACKTOE found no support on debut but finished strongly to run a good 2nd. She will come on. Not far behind was SIBUSISO'S PATH who will also know more about it. QUICK GLIMPSE is back over shorter and should give another good showing. RABIA THE REBEL found support at long odds after a change in surroundings and must be respected. This brings SUMMER SIN into the picture.

Verdict

QUICK GLIMPSE is easily the best in this line up on known form and has plenty in her favour. Selfie could be the one to benefit if the selection underperforms, while Ticktacktoe is prominent among those with minor place claims.

Verdict

AMANIKA has been close up in all 3 starts to date and could have her consistency reward. BELIEVE ME is a serious runner. She is improving fast and should be right there. ANNIE THE GREAT was a bit disappointing last time but shouldn't be far off. GENEROUS NOTION could take home a cheque. Watch for improvement from DUNAS DOURADAS. Respect money for newcomers.

Verdict

QUICK GLIMPSE is easily the best in this line up on known form and has plenty in her favour. Selfie could be the one to benefit if the selection underperforms, while Ticktacktoe is prominent among those with minor place claims.

Verdict

WHAT A STORY needed his last outing and should be in the shake-up. KENTUCKY BLUE showed good improvement in her 2nd start and should relish the extra.Stable companion DREAMSAREMADEOF is running well and if takes her place will be competitive. STOP AND STARE could get into the money. Watch first-timer NUNTIUS ORATORION.

Verdict

AMANIKA is selected rather gingerly but this is an open race. Believe Me is high up there among the rest, while Vat Sixty Eight is another to bear in mind first time out.

Verdict

SYLVAN ON FIRE pulled up fatigued last time but had an off day and could resume winning ways. MALEFICENT needed her recent sprint but could still be short a run. EMILY JAY has come well and looking for 4 in a trot. ROUGE ALLURE showed a return to form last time and could feature. VISUALITY, BANKING APRIL, ALILEO, TAMMANY HALL and OH MY DARLING could pull it off.

Verdict

KENTUCKY BLUE has just about the best credentials and could be difficult to catch. Dreamsaremadeof is chief among the dangers, while What A Story also requires a closer look.

Verdict

DAWN FLIGHT hasn't been far back recently and could chalk up win number 5. CARIBBEAN QUEEN tries a mile now. She finished 2 lengths ahead of SERENDIPITY recently but is 2,5 kg worse off. CURBSTONE SHUFFLE 'S only win to date was over this course and distance. SHELLY has a shout but appears moody. Others could pop up.

Verdict

CURBSTONE SHUFFLE looks marginally the pick of this bunch but has little margin for error. Sammi Moosa is the rational second choice, while Dawn Flight also merits respect.
