Verdict

WINSOME GOLD has finished runner-up in three of his last four outings but all those efforts came over further and the drop in trip looks a sensible decision given he was only caught close home over an extended mile last time. Bull Bailey was beaten by the narrowest of margins on his penultimate start and rates the biggest danger ahead of Adorable Twirl and Corky Lemon.

Verdict

THE NAMES BILLY posted a career best when dropped to this grade to finish second over track and trip earlier this month and rates the one to beat on that evidence. Haircut Bill finished just behind in third that day and ought to be thereabouts while For The Love hinted at ability on debut and would not have to improve much for a recent gelding operation to figure.

Verdict

Gentlemen Dale and Believe The Heat both have their sights lowered and should be monitored for market support while Whispering Bill has been knocking hard at the door and deserves a change in luck. However, GREAT RED DRAGON sauntered clear to score by five lengths on his penultimate start and showed enough when second last time to suggest he is up to landing this.

Verdict

Pacific Ridge is at his best when allowed to dictate matters but there appears plenty of early pace in the line-up and preference is for IFRIT who won by nearly five lengths over an extended mile at Penn National in March and he looks worth chancing he can repeat that effort over this shorter trip. Counter Move and Prospector Alley look the pick of the remainder.

Verdict

DANCE DAVID has proved consistency personified in recent months and hinted his turn was near when runner-up over slightly further here last month. Captain Holiday lost a winning chance when clipping heels over an extended six furlongs here last month and looks better judged on his penultimate success while Zephyrous caught the eye when third last time and completes the shortlist.

Verdict

CAN'T CATCH ME NOW sauntered clear to score by nearly seven lengths over track and trip earlier this month and will be tough to beat if returning in the same form here. Taylor's Cork isn't the most consistent but could go well at generous odds if at his best while Stonescape invariably runs his race in this grade and isn't passed over lightly.

Verdict

NOMORESTORMS has won two of his last three starts and fended off his rivals when making all for a determined success here last month. He rates a confident selection with Grip And Ride finding it difficult to win after two placed efforts here in the last month. My Golden Arch is open to more progression than the selection after only five starts and completes the shortlist.
