CHERCHAZ LA FEMME won pretty much as she liked over a similar trip here last month and she could take some stopping if arriving in the same mood. Midnight Cowgirl demands respect following a string of win and placed efforts while Gemini Dream is a lot better than showing latest.

LUNA CRESENTE brings the strongest form to the table and is fancied to open her account at the fifth time of asking. Gab's Lil Leaguer also has some decent efforts under her belt and merits consideration, along with newcomer Southerngenerosity, who caught the eye in a recent workout.

Verdict

The drop in both trip and grade will stand MARCH WIND in good stead and she could make a winning return under Arnaldo Bocachica. Not A Secret has a similar profile and is respected, as is recent track and trip scorer Classy Lakefield, who looks too big at the forecast prices.

Verdict

ARCTIC MIA is entitled to improve for her comeback second over track and trip earlier this month and gets the vote to go one better. Jamesons Double looks an obvious danger dropped in both distance and class, while Silken Lady is unlikely to be far away either.

CORKY LEMON certainly wasn't winning out of turn over this course and distance last time and he might be able to complete the double. Nuke Laloosh also arrives on the back of a comfortable success and he should run well again, while Gingers Hero rates a lively outsider.

ASP will arrive full of confidence following his comfortable opening win over track and trip and he could strike again. True Lime has been running well for a number of months and looks sure to figure prominently once more, while Aroostook will appreciate the drop in both trip and grade.
