Verdict

CITIZEN BY DAY was a fading runner up over a mile on her comeback. She is better on turf but has shown enough to suggest she can win a modest sprint maiden like this one. Shot Twice did best of a few of these when a well held runner-up last time. This event may be even weaker.

Verdict

HOLD ON MOMMA was claimed off a head defeat in a cheaper claimer last month. His new trainer have found a higher priced event that looks no stronger than the one she last raced in. She has speed in a paceless affair. Kiss The Flag seems to be rounding into form. Kitai is a player if she doesn't get too far behind.

Verdict

STORM THE SHORE is a 15 time maiden who is hard to trust but he towers over this field on form. Even his seven length fourth last time is likely to be good enough. Madeyourpoint and Won't Burn are next best in. The comebacking Casino King gets a full equipment makeover for this a massive drop in class.

Verdict

DANEBURY pressed a fast pace while hung wide and paid the price late on. He's better judged on a 12 length maiden win and a close up second to James Lane prior to that. His old rival could also rebound but he doesn't draw as well. Unrepenting has ran two big races at Parx since the turn of the year. He looks playable now facing New York breds.

She is likely to get speed to chase down. Mama Joyce beat the capable Making Havoc by a nose last time. They both are players. Old Valyria is The X Factor in here.

TWO CHARLEY'S was a fading runner-up over a mile earlier this month. The last time he ran over this distance he ran second in a stake. The winner has franked that form since with back to back Grade 3 victories. Toga Challenger, an impressive debut scorer, could improve past him. He Can Dance's winning may not be over.

Verdict

This event has been put on as a stepping stone for some class acts who've been away a while. It may be pay to concentrate on the pair with a recency edge. LIFE IN SHAMBLES won four times in 2016 and started off his year by being beaten a length in a Grade 3. Chief Lion ran with credit in two stakes at Laurel after winning here in December.

Verdict

FROZEN ANGEL lost by a nose on his return when running in a maiden claimer for the first time. He's the one to beat as things stand. Nut Nut is second in on form but Mo Focused may be a bigger danger. He's looked green in both his starts and now runs first time for sale today. Psychic Energy and Italian Syndicate both have powerful trainer angles.
