Verdict

Impish Babe ran on well for second over shorter here last time and is interesting if seeing out the trip, but ONE DROP ran a cracker over a slightly shorter distance last time and looks a safer proposition in this. Two Mikes N Doc G could outrun his forecast odds back up to a mile.

Verdict

ADIOS YANKEE was impressive last time, stretching clear in the closing stages over 5f which suggests this extra distance will be within his compass. Warned and Mallory's Bandit have the back form to mount a challenge but were both disappointing on their respective last starts.

Verdict

CAT'S HIT was impressive on debut, missing out by just a neck, and she can go one better here. She pulled two lengths clear of Indian Bayou that day and can confirm that form, though a bigger danger this time could be Kilasa, who showed up well on her first outing.

Verdict

If One King Cat returns from his absence in anything like the form that saw him miss out by a length in a better race last June, then he will be really hard to beat. However, ARTIST BY THE SEA has some really solid recent form to his name and looks to have the edge fitness-wise. The consistent Mickey is also considered.

Verdict

Class droppers Zargaux, Gardner's Song and Touch Of Jones all have claims on their best form, but MR RED SENSATION gets the nod. A good third in a better race last time, Eric Nelson Jr's charge was comfortably clear of Confederate Yell and Mob Posse that day so could confirm that form en route to a win.

Verdict

Cristianstorm has been racking up the wins in a lesser grade and has claims, while Tee Brown was not far away last time and merits respect here. Preference is for VALLEY OF THE HIDE, though, as he was beaten just a neck at the Fair Grounds last time having scored here the time before. He appears to be holding his form really well.

Verdict

Wild Bert had No Game For Sissys behind when second last time, but he had no answer to NORTHWOODS CAT on his penultimate start and Eduardo Ramirez's gelding is taken to confirm that form and land the spoils. Unbraided was hugely impressive in a claimer last time and is worth a second glance at least.

Verdict

Major Brown could prove a cut above these rivals now dropping in class, but his recent form is less impressive than ZANESVILLE's. A keeping-on second over a slightly shorter trip in a similar grade last time, the lightly-raced colt is likely to have further improvement to come. Super Day won nicely last time and is worth a try in this company.
