Verdict

G's Turn and Overnight Stay are obvious candidates on the form book but both look a little exposed now and this can go to the newcomer NAVY TYPIST, an expensive purchase for the powerful Thomas Amoss barn. Thrasher, another intriguing newcomer for a top yard, may emerge as the principal danger.

Verdict

Tapster has been holding his form in stronger events and can go well, but a sole career success from eighteen starts suggests that he might be vulnerable to SHAMBOLIC. Carlos Marquez's mount has been contesting better heats and has the scope to improve after just five career starts. Colour My World completes the shortlist.

Verdict

BLUE HOUDINI made light of some narrow defeats when romping to victory over a furlong shorter here in November and looks worth siding with to complete the brace. The consistent Halo Redding should run his race but the down-in-class Indy's Code appeals as the chief danger to the selection.

Verdict

TIP TAP TAPIZAR ran well to finish third (subsequently placed second in the stewards' room) in a similar event at Fair Grounds latest and a similar performance may be enough to return him to winning ways. Last-time-out track and trip winner Power Walker looks the one for the forecast with Tiz Town a viable place alternative to the principals.
