Verdict

French Roast has shown on more than one occasion that a race of this nature is within range but she may have to settle for another supporting role, this time behind INSEPARABLE. The daughter of Tenpins was a position ahead of Lady King when third on debut, and can only improve for the experience.

Verdict

SPEED TOO TUME hasn't been disgraced in a couple of maiden special weights here and at Evangeline, and it will be disappointing if she can't capitalise on having her sights lowered. Attitude Ajustment is the pick of the Justin Jeansonne pair because Beachy Attitude was a long way behind Given Grace last time.

DELICIOUS was snapped up out of the Danny Pish barn after landing a claimer over slightly further here, and this doesn't appear any more competitive. Clip Joint was narrowly denied over 6 1/2f and is just as effective at this trip, while Impish Babe is a player as he attempts to supplement last month's triumph.
