Verdict

A few in with chances here but a decent case can be made for LAKE G P who has been running well in defeat of late and looks the most solid option on the back of her solid third here latest. Anna's Glory and Native Boy are feared most.

Verdict

Unanimous Choice made a promising start at Fair Grounds and is entitled to improve but making more appeal is RULERS STAR. The selection failed to fire latest but showed enough in his previous four starts to suggest she is capable of winning one of these. Newcomers F C Halo Elite and Run Mardi Gras Run have both worked well in preparation for tonight's debut outing and are also considered.

Verdict

DOMINATION completed a hat-trick when scoring over 7f here in December. Having stayed on well in the closing stages that day, there is every chance he can extend his winning run over this longer trip. Normandy Shore and Atthebuzzer complete the shortlist.

Verdict
