Verdict

ELUSIVE CAMILLA has won two of her last three and she never appeared in any danger when scoring by two lengths over track and trip in February. Wagered has improved for the switch to this distance and rates the biggest danger after scoring with the minimum of fuss over track and trip earlier this month with Spun From Gold best of the rest.

Verdict

Dark Helmet drops significantly in grade and it will be disappointing if he failed to make his presence felt while Seven Knots invariably runs his race in this grade but his losing run has to be a concern. RETAPPED showed plenty of promise on debut however, weakening after showing plenty of early dash over track and trip, and any normal amount of improvement could make him the one to beat.

Verdict

Royal Almighty and Rasta Friend are closely matched on their run here last month and both ought to mount bold bids but PHILIPPIAN has proved consistency personified in recent months, finishing no worse than fourth on his last six starts, and is difficult to oppose after finishing a close fourth over an extended five furlongs at Penn National last month.

Verdict

CLEARBROOK MISS ran on well to score by nearly three lengths over track and trip last month and a reproduction of that effort could be good enough to land this. Madeitouttaharlan will prove difficult to keep out of the frame judged on her latest fourth over track and trip and rates the biggest danger ahead of Miss Simon.

Verdict

Demay's Castle has finished third on her last three outings and ought to be thereabouts while Wolfblase regained the winning thread with a determined success and enters calculations. However, SWEET LADY SUE is better than she displayed last time and is worth another chance after finishing second over track and trip on her penultimate start.

Verdict

SUPER GARNER lost out by a head when finishing second on his penultimate start and followed that up by finishing a neck third over seven furlongs here last month. He gained his sole success over this trip and can regain the winning thread under ideal conditions. John Dothen and Start Your Engine look the pair to concentrate on for minor honours.

Verdict

ROLLING BROOK has proven consistency personified in recent months and suggested he was ready to regain the winning thread when runner-up over track and trip last month. Mona Lima and Lil'l Allstar both return from long absences and should be noted for market support with Grand Fiber looking the biggest danger at this stage.

Verdict

LIVE FREE has been performing with credit in stronger races than this in recent months and connections appear to have found the ideal race for her to shed the maiden tag. Bella Fox caught the eye on debut when finishing fourth over track and trip and ought to improve enough to be thereabouts with Blown Away Baby and Why Not Annie the pick of the remainder.
