Verdict

I Need You and Corky Lemon will appreciate the drop in class after finishing fifth and sixth respectively in a much stronger allowance contest, but a chance is taken on the potential of OFFICER RIDGE, who backed up his maiden victory with a determined success over 6 1/2f, with Straight Humor among those trailing in his wake. Duke Of Chadwick is worth some thought too.

IM A PRANKSTER bounced back to form to make all over track and trip last month and there is a chance he could be allowed to dictate terms to suit himself again. That said, Sandman Cometh also made every post a winning one latest but in lesser company and over two furlongs shorter. Masons Dream and Shenandoah are old rivals and could give the selection most to think about.

Verdict

Too Many Coronas built on his debut second by going one better over track and trip, and Start Your Engine also arrives on the back of his maiden success. John Root's return from a seven-month absence offered some encouragement, but PISTOLINMYPOCKET suffered a torrid journey last time and gets the vote thanks to his previous narrow defeat in stakes company.

TRICKY WINDSOR left it late but took her record to three wins from five starts over course and distance last month and it should be a case of onwards and upwards. Our Carly has hit the crossbar on both outings since moving here and will make her presence felt again. She's Going Strong and Scottish Denis have place claims.

Verdict

Destrier made all over course and distance, but was one of Breadman's Big Guy's victims prior to that. The latter also has the measure of Gentlemen Dale from his win here at the start of last month but he then had to settle for third in the race in which TRIPLE CLOWN and Montague Bay took minor honours, and Jeff Runco's charge can confirm that superiority en route to going one better.

Verdict

LET'S PLAY TWO rediscovered some form to fill the runner-up berth in a similar track-and-trip claimer earlier in the month and if she matches the level of that performance, she can strike. Flashy Bargirl was just one position behind her that day so is a major threat, as is Elusive Camilla, who was third when Flashy Bargirl was second on her penultimate appearance.

Verdict

MOONLIT SONG is yet to put a foot wrong and has picked up a couple of stakes prizes on her way to completing a five-timer this year. Granted normal luck in running, she should continue on her merry way. Honeymoon Cruise has struck twice since chasing Moonlit Song home in March, and Lies And Scandals is also on a hat-trick but has seen the rear view of the selection more than once.

Verdict

FIFTY NAYS FOR HAY was a length and a place in front of Toy Train when second over course and distance, before returning to again make the frame in a slightly more competitive affair. A repeat of either performance may well suffice today. Little Miss Madras has run behind the selection twice but has scope for improvement.
