Verdict

SUAVE makes his local debut and it will not be a surprise were he to do well. WESTERN OFFICER is a bit better than his last run would suggest and could pop up in the places. DEAGO DELUXE is improving and must be given respect. SEATTLE AFFAIR returns from a lengthy break but his first run was a good one and he can win if fit. PIERA looks the biggest threat and is improving.

Verdict

SEATTLE AFFAIR has an outstanding chance on form and would be folly to ignore. Suave is a sound alternative, while Western Officer could also figure.

Verdict

JUNTA is doing nicely in her new yard and should fight out the finish once again. BANDANNA showed improvement on the turf last time out but is returning from a break. EQUESTRIS continues to hold her form and deserves the utmost respect once again. BELLA ISLE is unreliable but could race fresh from a break. GODDESS AURELIA ran a much improved race last time out and has a chance.

Verdict

YUTAKA makes plenty of appeal first time out in this low company and might well be the one to go along with. Junta gets the vote for second, while Island Sailing can't be ruled out of things either.

Verdict

BRING ME MORE may have just needed her local debut and could be smarter this time so could be the one to beat. INSINYA disappointed last time out but could place in this line-up. NICOLE has been a bit disappointing since her promising start to her career but is not out of it and can challenge for the win. BERRY CRUSH and CLOSE TO MY HEART both ran improved races last time out.

Verdict

ESTIMET makes plenty of appeal making her racecourse debut up against modest rivals and seems to have been found a decent opportunity. Bring Me More can beat the rest, while Close To My Heart is perhaps the most interesting other runner in the line up.

Verdict

GOGETTHESHERIFF ran better last time out so could be ready to cause an upset. OUR ICON is capable of better than his last run. SIR DUKE continues to hold his form but does battle to win races. RAZED IN BLACK is in good form so clearly is not out of it. AFRICABURN was only run out of it late last time out and could be ready to win. STRATOCRUISER made all to win his latest start.

Verdict

AFRIKABURN is just about up to taking this but will need to avoid any trouble. Razed In Black gets the nod among the others, while Stratocruiser also commands scrutiny.

Verdict

ALL THE BIDS won a nice race last time out but this looks a tougher task. ROSSLYIN CHAPEL has been unreliable but is capable of earning stake money. JUST LIKE MAGIC has not won since February bit is not doing badly and can finish in the money. PYRAMUS is better over further but should fight out the finish once again. AQUA BLUE is in good form and is likely to run very well.

Verdict

PYRAMUS has a little in hand but will need everything to fall right. Just Like Magic seems the primary challenger, while Aqua Blue is perhaps the most interesting other runner in the line up.

Verdict

A very open looking contest. It may pay to ignore OMEGA ONSLAUGHT'S last run. CAPTAIN'S DOVE usually gives of her best and could run well in her new surroundings. ROCK ME VAR is in good form(so is his yard) and should make a bold bid. One must not ignore the chances of all of BRIGHT FLAME, GONE NOT FORGOTTEN and FLYING ROCK. ZANZIBAR BEAT runs well over this course and distance

Verdict

BRIGHT FLAME continues in form and should give backers a run for their money. Kingston Warren shouldn't be underestimated, while Gone Not Forgotten shouldn't be ruled out.

Verdict

Trainer Alan Greeff has a strong hand in this race. OUR DESTINY makes her debut for the Greeff yard but do not be surprised if it is a winning one. OKLAHOMA SKY is in good form but this is a tough race for her. SWEETCHLD O MINEloves this track and trip and should run well. MIRANDA FROST has run behindsome talented fillies so should do well at this centre and has a chance.

Verdict

OUR DESTINY looks to have just about the best credentials but hasn't much room for error. Miranda Frost is probably the chief danger, while Via Seattle edges it so far as third place is concerned.

Verdict

STOPTHINKINGOFME is a course and distance winner that must be given respect in this line-up. SILVA KEY is looking for a hat-trick of wins and is very well drawn. NACRE and NOVA are capable of popping up in the places. BUTTERFLY SPIRIT could do better back over this minimum trip. MERITOCRACY would prefer further but is capable of going close. BUNCH OF THYME can earn some money.

Verdict

BUNCH OF THYME has been running creditably of late and should give backers a decent run for their money. Stopthinkingofme should be right in the mix as well, while Meritocracy looks best of the rest.
