Verdict

The Snaith-Fourie domination shows no signs of abating and the pair could strike again in the opener with MUMTAZ who is bred to enjoy the extra having shown promise in two starts over 1000m. SKYE LANE was backed when she showed ability on debut and there should be more to come from her. Newcomers GIMME LONDON and QUEEN NITOCRIS are bred to be useful so worth a market check.

Verdict

QUEEN NITOCRIS isn't without interest first time up and could well be the one to side with. Dancing Sally seems sure to be snapping at the heels of the selection having her first run, while Gimme London also merits consideration.

Verdict

VIKRAM attracted strong betting support in a hot maiden recently and ran accordingly. He should improve over this trip with the benefit of that experience to contest the outcome. EMPIRE GLORY also showed promise on debut and could have more to offer. FORTY DAYS shows pace over further and could be suited to this trip from gate No 1. Watch newcomers PEGA D'ORO and SPRING FLING.

Verdict

VIKRAM is open to improvement and could be difficult to catch. Forty Days is also fancied to take a hand, while Pega D'oro is another worth looking at first time up.

Verdict

KALAHARI NINJA has shown smart ability in sprint outings and his running style suggests he will be better suited to this trip. ELUSIVE VICTOR and NATURALIST acquitted themselves well in a hot maiden over shorter and both should have more to offer this trip. CONSUL OF WAR has improved as a gelding and should be competitive too. GREEK SWORD is another likely improver to consider

Verdict

CONSUL OF WAR looks to have more or less the best credentials but this is an open race. Kalahari Ninja is another that comes into the equation, while Going Back West is a newcomer to note.

Verdict

ORAKAL is unbeaten at this track. He beat several of these rivals in a similar contest last time and can confirm despite the weight turnarounds. SPECTRA FORCE and SILVER MASTER are weighted to turn the tables on the selection, who did win easier than the margin of victory suggests. SILVER MAPLE and WAITING FOR RAIN are more than capable on their day.

Verdict

SILVER MAPLE can retain his unbeaten record if ready to go after 11 months off. Silver Master is likely to pounce if the selection fails to deliver, while Spectra Force is another with place prospects too.

FOURS A CROWD beat WING OF HONOR over shorter last time. Both should enjoy the extra but there is little between the pair on these terms. AHOY ME MATEY and PERFECTPROPORTIONS are capable but may need this outing after respective layoffs. CANUKEEPITSECRET and HELEN'S IDEAL were smart juveniles who could have more to offer during their 3yo careers. Good race!

Verdict

PERFECTPROPORTIONS ran well in defeat in a listed race when last seen and has a clear chance. Fours A Crowd rates the main danger, while Rebels Spirit also commands a second look.

Verdict

HOTEL CIPRIANI and MOON ROCK show pace over further, so could be hard to peg back dropping to this trip. RIP IT UP beat a subsequent winner when scoring in his second start and there should be more to come from the highly regarded 3yo. JARDIN could also have more to offer after a promising juvenile campaign. REDIAL and DAYONAUT have ability but may need the run.

Verdict

REDIAL likely has more to offer handicapping this year and can make a successful return. Hotel Cipriani and Rip It Up are other key players.

Verdict

RED RASCAL has been beaten by some useful sorts since a winning debut but could get his head in front again with blinkers now fitted. IN THE JUNGLE and SIBERIAN HUSKY are closely matched on recent form and both should be competitive in this line-up. HADARAT and ALDATO are weighted to get closer to last-start winner STREETFIGHTING MAN who is improving.

Verdict

ALDATO can give all these something to think about but will need to avoid any trouble. Streetfighting Man is the most realistic next preference, while Siberian Husky is perhaps the most interesting of those left.

Verdict

CROME YELLOW is overdue a maiden win and could get his head in front now. He finished ahead of HELLO MANNY and PARADE MARCH last time and could confirm with those rivals if as effective over this trip. Those rivals, however, have no stamina doubts so could pose more of a threat over this distance. DEPOSITION, CEDAR MAN and MASTER DESIGN all have scope to improve this trip.

Verdict

CROME YELLOW just about looks the one to be with but others can't be discounted in an open contest. Hello Manny is another who could have a big say in matters, while Cedar Man also requires scrutiny.
