Verdict

DEVILS DANCE defied a slow start when a silver medallist on her racecourse bow here last month; today's step-up in distance could suit the Goldencents filly and she is fancied to go one better. True Validity has shaped well on both starts to date and rates a live danger, while Enaya Alrabb looks most feasible of the newcomers.

Verdict

BEST TWO MINUTES scored on his last try at this level back in the spring, and two subsequent solid efforts in stronger races point to his chances in this field. Eighty Three arrives in search of a hat-trick and rates a danger to all, while Tavasco Road has his sights lowered and is another with possibilities.

Verdict

WELL DEVELOPED has been keeping his head above water in a better class of race and is taken to land a fourth career victory. Afleet Ascent, another with his sights lowered, should be there or thereabouts, while the admirably consistent Kencumin is expected to be in the firing line at the business end.

Verdict

Californiagoldrush is two from two and could be anything, but this is her toughest task thus far and FATALE BERE is preferred. The selection finished behind a few of these at Santa Anita back in June, but her saddle slipped on that occasion and she looks up to obliging at this level. Ollie's Candy only failed by a neck to maintain her unbeaten record here last month and rates a live danger.

Verdict

ACCELERATE lived up to his name when victorious at this level at Santa Anita in May and a repeat performance can see him land a brace. South American import Roman Rosso is worth a check in the betting now with Bob Baffert, while Pavel tends to dine at the top table and cannot be ignored in an intriguing contest.
