PAPA ROYALE sauntered clear to score by over seven lengths over this trip at Los Alamitos and is difficult to oppose on that evidence. Post Rock is consistent in this grade but doesn't win very often, while Summer Buddha impressed on debut and is forgiven a poor effort last time.

PEDRO CERRANO boasts a progressive profile and maintained his unbeaten course record when coming clear to score by two lengths over track and trip in November. His absence is a slight concern but he looks worth chancing. Where Y'at Joe Joe had Logan's Moon behind in second when scoring over this trip at Santa Anita and rates the biggest danger.

Verdict

ALSATIAN finished second in a $200,000 race on his penultimate start and although not at that level last time, this greater stamina test will suit and he can regain the winning thread. Over Par has finished runner-up on his last two starts and deserves a change in luck, while Ibon made a winning debut and this will reveal more.

Unlucky Hilary and Slim Fit both finished in the places last time and enter calculations, with Pretty Owl looking the pick of the newcomers.

However, TYFOSHA caught the eye on debut when finishing second over this trip at Santa Anita and normal amount of improvement would see her difficult to beat.

Verdict

MOONLESS SKY has proved consistency personified in five starts this year, winning three of them, and her latest success over a mile at Santa Anita was arguably her best yet. She is handed a confident vote and can see off the attentions of Space Cadet and Ginga who look the pick of the remainder.

Verdict

Arms Runner arrives here having won both his starts and is a fascinating contender, while Allaboutmike has won his last two and ought to go well again. However, BOWIES HERO was beaten a little over two lengths when fourth in a Grade 3 over an extended mile at Belmont and rates a solid selection to take advantage of this drop in grade.

Verdict

Adroit and Pulpit Rider both take the eye on breeding and should be noted for any market support but experience can count for a lot in this type of event and SPICED PERFECTION is preferred. The selection finished third on debut before finishing runner-up over this trip at Santa Anita and any improvement on them efforts could be enough for her to shed the maiden tag.

Verdict

DREAM POLICE faced a difficult task on his last outing but impressed when scoring with plenty in hand on his penultimate start and is handed the vote now he has his sights lowered. Preacher Roe and Private Prospect both arrive in decent heart after a string of consistent efforts and look the pair to concentrate on for minor honours.
