Verdict

Competitive start. CONSUL OF WAR has improved after gelding and runs well fresh, so could play a leading role. CARLTON HEIGHTS, RETRO EFFECT and SWIFT SURPRISE have shown enough to feature but wide gates to overcome. SENATLA should also improve after a pleasing debut, so must be respected. MAGIC MIKE and MERCURANA make most appeal of the newcomers.

Verdict

SWIFT SURPRISE is taken to get off the mark. Arctic Cat is hard to ignore on debut, while Spirit Of Song can't be ruled out of it either.

Verdict

CANTATA won't be long in winning after finishing 2nd in both starts and the step up to 1400m could also be to her liking. She could be worth opposing, however, with well-related MADONNA who caught the eye on debut over a trip thought to be short of her best. Improving CAPTAIN'S CHOICE has claims but is drawn wide, so DANCING SALLY and newcomer HERCULES GIRL are preferred.

Verdict

FAYE makes just about the most appeal. Cantata could be the one to capitalise if the selection underperforms, while Ruby Two Shoes is perhaps the most interesting other runner.

Verdict

REDIAL made an eye-catching comeback from a lengthy layoff when slowly away before running on strongly over shorter, and the extra 200m with that run under the belt should suit. FLASH TWICE and MERAKI have rediscovered their form off similar marks, so could pose a threat, but others including KALAHARI NINJA, WHAT A SUMMER and unexposed BOUNTIFUL STRENGTH could feature too.

Verdict

GIMMIE A COHIBA is chanced in a wide-open handicap. Meraki also makes the shortlist along with Young Gun.

Open. Both STILL I RISE and HONEY SUITE had been off the racetrack for a lengthy period of time but showed no signs of rustiness on their returns in a similar contest recently, and with improved fitness should go well again. SAMSARA was outclassed in a Grade 3 over further last time but should fare better here. TOWNSHIP MELODY and SEQUINED are also capable of getting a look in.

Verdict

TOWNSHIP MELODY remains in top form and can resume winning ways. Over Again and Luna Child are feared most.

Verdict

BWANA and TOP OF THE CLASS were promising sprinters with useful form before being gelded. That unkind 'cut' has worked a treat, though, as they have taken their form to new and improved heights. Both are still relatively unexposed and could improve further to fight out the finish. POWER GRID, PRINCE ALFRED and WHAT A WINNER are capable on their day.

Verdict

PRINCE ALFRED gets a narrow vote but can't afford for much to go wrong. Power Grid and What A Winner also have claims.

Verdict

BENJAN has acquitted himself well in stronger races recently and off higher ratings. The drop in class and 2,5kg claim also works in his favour, so he is hard to oppose. WOODLAND'S FOREST and PADDINGTON are capable stayers with earning potential, but consistent veteran JUDDERING ANGEL could prove best of the rest on current form.

Verdict

JUDDERING ANGEL's recent efforts have had a lot to like about them and he has a fair chance. Parisian Gold could provide the chief danger, while Woodland's Forest is another likely to be on the premises.

Verdict

DEPECHE turned the tables on SPARKELING FIRE over 1600m last time but has stamina doubts and unlikely to confirm. The latter has no such issues and could improve sufficiently with blinkers on to score an overdue maiden win. Well-related LET ME LOVE YOU could also have more to offer with headgear fitted. MERKABA and GREY MISTRESS are closely matched and not without a chance.

Verdict

SPARKELING FIRE has generally been running well and just about sets the standard. Depeche should be thereabouts too, while Merkaba also needs a closer look.

Verdict

Wide open - Quartets are a must. PEARL JAM has run well in two comeback starts over shorter and the extra 200m will be right up her alley, despite an 11 draw. FOXY PRINCESS is closely matched with that rival but untried over this trip. RUBYANA and ANGEL OF ATHENS have been running well at this level and should be competitive again. SUMMER MOON and EVERDENE have claims too.

Verdict

PEARL JAM can rock in the finale. Angel of Athens is fancied to beat the rest ahead of Magic Mary.
