Verdict

The experienced runners don't set the bar overly high, with Our Diamond and Racin Prayer arguably the pick of them, so a chance is taken on OUR LADY'S PRAYER. She has shaped with lots of promise in her workouts and wouldn't need to be anything special to make a winning debut.

It might pay to side with APRIL MAE in what looks a tricky puzzle for punters to solve. She was an effortless 6f winner before struggling in deeper company over 1m latest and this drop in both trip and grade may help her bounce back to form. Hotsy Dotsy and Tom And Ed's Girl are others to note.

Verdict

A case can be made for a number of these, but the pair that stand out are SPINNING PEGASUS and Bitsy's Carlos. Karl Broberg's charge chases four wins in a row and could edge out the latter, who has been running consistently well at a higher level. Hot Rod rates a live outsider.

Verdict

Somethingroyal P could well make amends to her supporters having been disqualified and placed last of eighth after initially finishing first past the post latest, while Shezaone shouldn't be too far away either. However, the experienced runners don't set the bar overly high so a chance is taken on FOUR PRINCESSES, a newcomer who has shaped with lots of promise in recent workouts.
