Verdict

Friends Talk was impressive in shedding the maiden tag latest and is respected, but of more interest is OPEN FOREST, who shed the maiden status on debut and has been running well, if looking past her latest effort, in similar claimers since. There should be more to come from her, while chances are also given to Poker Fever Gal and Sittin On Cotton.

THAT'S D 'CAT arrives in good nick having proved his second-placed effort here two starts ago was no fluke by scoring last time in similar company. While evidently on good terms with himself, he gets the nod ahead of Dr. Zipcity and Tylers Bandit.
