Verdict

(1)BATACLAN is an Oratorio filly that is making her debut. It is not easy to win over this course and distance on debut. (2)CALL ME BLUE was a remote fourth last time and might place. (3)DOMREMY tends to lack a strong finish but could play a minor role. (4) FRENCH NOBILITY has run two fair races but will need to do more to win. (6) MARCH MUSIC did well against winners last time

Verdict

MARCH MUSIC is just about the pick in this field and is up to winning this. French Nobility is most likely the biggest danger, while Domremy also seems unlikely to be far away.

Verdict

(1) ADALBERTO did well enough on debut but did not repeat it in his two runs since. (2) ALAMITO BAY showed promise on debut and does look a danger.(3) ALDO makes his debut and can be considered. (4)MY BOY JACK improved in his second start and has a winning chance. (6) TUNE THE SCOPE always gives of his best and could contest the finish. (8) PRESS RELEASE is not out of it.

Verdict

ALAMITO BAY just about appeals the most and has a fair chance. Press Release is the most pragmatic second option, while Tune The Scope is not out of it for third place.

Verdict

A very weak field. (1) MACKEREL SKY showed good improvement in her latest start and could go one better this time. (2) MONEY BUYS LOVE has changed trainers but can be considered in this line-up as she could like the Polytrack. (3) SPORT CHIC is well drawn and could finish in the money. (4) POPPINJAY has been disappointing but may still improve. (8) VELVET THUNDER can run well,

Verdict

VELVET THUNDER looks interesting on her racecourse debut given these rivals and has a good opportunity here by the looks of things. Nicoletta looks the most dangerous rival making her debut, while Money Buys Love is prominent among those with minor place claims.

Verdict

Another very weak field and there are at least five runners that can win. (1) BAYETO is probably better than his last run and can be included in all bets. (2) CHANONE'S THEORY ran his best race to date last time but tries the Polytrack. (3) LA SCALA is battling to win but is not out of it. (4) GREY HALO disappointed in his last two starts but must be considered.

Verdict

KOUNIA BELLA gets a narrow vote but hasn't much room for error. La Scala is most likely the main opposition, while Bayeto has a good shout of a share of the minor money.

Verdict

(1) ROSSLYN CHAPEL is unreliable but is also course and distance suited. Not out of it. (2) GOLDEN SHAMROCK loves this course and distance and should be right there at the finish.(3) APOC is battling to find winning form but could finish in the money. There are a few others that must be considered. (6) RASTA BAY was full of running last time and does have a winning chance,

Verdict

GOLDEN SHAMROCK looks to have just about the best credentials but has next to no margin for error. Rebel Baron likely poses the biggest threat, while Bruce's Beauty might well have a say too.

Verdict

(1) THERMOCLINE won nicely on her local debut. That was her first taste of the Polytrack and she quickened well. She must have a winning chance. (4) EQUESTRIS is a bit unreliable but could pop up in the places once again. (6) BERRY CRUSH improved to win a maiden race last time but this is a tougher task. (9) JUST LUCKY has good recent runs behind her and she is the one to beat.

Verdict

KEEP IT GREEN looks to have narrowly the best credentials and gets the verdict. Just Lucky gets the nod among the rest, while Equestris edges it as the selection for third.

Verdict

(1) MARINELLA and (2) DUSK BEAUTY have struggled in their last two starts but are capable of doing better. (3) ZAIDA likes the Poltrack and although the drop on distance could be a problem she still looks the one they have to beat. (4) SAN ROCHELLE was full of running when winning and must be considered. (5) BUTTERFLY SPIRIT is holding form and should be right there at the end.

Verdict

ZAIDA should make a bold show. if just as effective at this new trip. Across The Lake is the rational second choice, while Butterfly Spirit also seems unlikely to be far away.

Verdict

(1) VARBRATION has a wide draw to overcome but can win a race like this. (2) FOR LUCK SAKE is in good form and did win over the track and distance last time. (3) CANDY CRUSH was not disgraced behind some decent horses last time so will run well in this line-up. (5)(11)KINGSTON WARREN could finish in the money. BARBARELLA NIGHTS is track and distance suited.

Verdict

FLYING ROCK looks to have narrowly the best credentials but this is an open race. For Luck Sake arguably sets the standard among the rest, while Candy Crush also requires consideration.
