Verdict

Nuke Laloosh is a model of consistency and he should be bang there at the business end, but MOMENTS NOTIZ arrives in great nick following three wins in his last four starts, denied by a mere short head on a four-timer latest, and he gets the vote. Northern Luck should also go well.

Verdict

Verdict

Verdict

Daiquiri is entitled to have improved for her latest third-placed effort, her first since September last year, while Canna Red and Secret Garden should also go well. MISSES KNIGHT has been banging hard on the door in similar claimers since joining this barn earlier in the year, though, and might not need to improve much on her latest neck second over C&D.
