Verdict

ST PATRICK's FLAME has not been disgraced in his two starts but will need to do more to win this race. He could place. CATCHMASTER has been a bit disappointing in that he has not won but he is capable of winning a race like this. HARTLEYSIX runs on Friday 3rd and that run must be looked at. POMACEOUS is improving and should fight out the finish once again. Muzi Yeni is aboard.

Verdict

POMACEOUS was the beaten market choice last time out, but still makes most appeal of these. Hartleysix could provide the most competition, while The Greek Soldier looks the one for the minor money.

Verdict

REBEL WILSON is improving and does have a winning chance. LATERAL'S FLASH is battling to win but might place. SEATTLE EMPRESS tends to lack a strong finish but could play a minor role. LATESCENT makes her debut and deserves some respect. MALINDA, the Var filly has run two decent races so far and has a big chance in this weak field. SHEPARD'S DELIGHT must be respected on debut.

Verdict

MALINDA frustrated those who made her favourite last time, but looks the one to be on once again. Rebel Wilson is the most likely danger, while Shepard's Delight commands a closer look as well first time out.

Verdict

PEPPER OAK tired over 1200m last time but is much better over this distance. EASY STREET is battling to find winning form but could finish in the money once again. PRINCESS REBEL is very fast and could win her fifth starts. She will be hard to catch. BOXLEY has some ability but is returning from a break and may just need it. SMART SUZY is unreliable but is not out of it.

Verdict

MAKE IT RAINE took a large step back in the right direction again on her latest start and is well up to winning this. Princess Rebel could be the most competition, while Stopthinkingofme also demands a closer look.

Verdict

A competitive race. LE GRAND ROUGE is at best this distance and can win a race like this. ZEVENASTIC isw in good form and loves this course and distance. AMAZON KING makes his local debut and is clearly not out of it. PACIFIC SPIRIT and stable companion ORIENTAL TIGER both need to improve to win but could earn some minor money. VARBRATION and BORN A BULLY are speedy types.

Verdict

AMAZON KING has been hard to fault in recent runs and has a fair chance. Pacific Spirit should be right in the mix as well, while Captain Marooned is one to bear in mind too.

Verdict

FANFARE improved to win her last start but tackles a much stronger field this time. WHAT A PLAYER disappointed in her last start but is capable of better and could finish in the money. LOVE TALK, HORSE HAIZI and SEAT TREAT have place chances. MARCH MUSIC looks talented and may not have enjoyed leading last time. If allowed to settle she could prove a bit better than these.

Verdict

MARCH MUSIC has put together a solid series of recent efforts and seems the one they have to beat. What A Player makes most appeal among the rest, while Just Chaos demands respect as well.

Verdict

SUAVE won full of running last time out and if repeating that level of form he could follow up. He did receive a 6 point penalty for that win. I WILL BE is capable of doing better and could place. NEUF DE PAPE is battling to regain his best form. TIGER WARRIOR did well enough last time to have a winning chance in this race. PICK AGAIN has some fair recent form and has a chance.

Verdict

REBEL BARON looks to have marginally the best claims but will need to be firing on all cylinders. Suave is taken to follow the selection home, while Bruce's Beauty also demands consideration.

Verdict

ARABIAN DYNASTY suffered his first local defeat but was found to be not striding out so that run could best be ignored. It will not be a surprise were he to regain winning form. FREE AGENT was full of running when winning last time out so comes into this race with confidence. MANGROVE is improving and could finish in the money. WISH TO LAND always gives of his very best.

Verdict

CAPTAIN'S VISTA appeals best of these by a narrow margin. Mangrove could have the most to offer of the others, while Free Agent has a good shout of a share of the minor money.

Verdict

HONEY'S LEGACY is in very good form and deserves a win. This race looks an ideal race for her to achieve that. BURGEE has some fair form and could finish in the money. CHRISTMAS CRACKER could play a minor role at best> HIPPIE TRAIL goes up a lot in distance and could improve. MY MIRACLE has to be givensome respect. PETIPA should like this longer distance and can go very close.

Verdict

THE BLUFF formwise has a distinct edge and is difficult to oppose. Honey's Legacy can also play a leading role, while Burgee heads up those chasing third place.
