Verdict

ONEMORESWEETKISS had Identity Theft behind in third when runner-up over track and trip last month and could prove difficult to beat if repeating that effort here. Crime Buzz posted a lacklustre effort last time but invariably runs her race around here and she looks the pick for minor honours ahead of Flash Tips.

Verdict

LIMITED EDITION sauntered clear to score by nearly four lengths when completing a double over track and trip last month and she is difficult to oppose after such a dominant performance. Greely's Striker has finished in the places on her last two starts and rates the biggest danger ahead of Natalie's Angel.

Lady Bearoness drops in grade and it will be disappointing if she failed to make her presence felt while Brooke's Appeal has finished no worse than third on her last five starts and merits respect. However, LIKE ME OR NOT regained the winning thread with a determined success over track and trip last month and can improve again with her confidence boosted.

Verdict

Misses Knight looks to be coming to the boil judged on her last two placed efforts while Hissy Fit returned to form when third last time and has claims if building on that here. However, DEBUTANT GIRL lost out by the narrowest of margins when runner-up over an extended five furlongs at Finger Lakes last month and this shorter trip can see her reach the winners enclosure.

Goose Town posted a rare poor effort last time but it would be no surprise to see him bounce back with the lightly-raced Papa C And B looking pick of the remainder.

Verdict

King Of Blues was sent off favourite for his debut run and has produced two solid efforts while Workpansomethings hinted at ability on debut and is entitled to improve. However, neither set an insurmountable standard for some interesting newcomers to aim at and EAGLE PRIDE, brother to a prolific winner, can enhance his trainer's impressive strike-rate at this venue.

NATHAN THE GREAT sauntered clear to record a fluent success over track and trip last month and this consistent type could prove difficult to catch if allowed to dictate matters from the off. Margarita Sunrise has added consistency to his performances and isn't passed over lightly after finishing second over track and trip last time with Sherwood Forest best of the rest.

Verdict

Lulu Rocks has won four of his last six and posted a solid effort in defeat when fifth over an extended five furlongs at Finger Lakes last month, while Whatsthequestion drops in grade and any market support would be interesting. However, CUTTY SHARK completed a hat-trick when scoring in fluent fashion over seven furlongs here last time and is difficult to oppose given his current form.
