Verdict

SEATTLE LILY disappointed last time out but if fit from her break could go close to winning this race. SEATTLE SPARK makes her local debut. She probably would prefer a longer distance but is not out of it. PEPPER DUST is clearly better than her last three runs and could earn some money in this race. HORSE HAIZI did pretty well on her debut. She was not as good last time out.

Verdict

HORSE HAIZI was unable to cheer backers last time, but looks the one to be on once again. Seattle Spark is the percentage call to finish runner-up, while Seattle Lily could go well too.

Verdict

A race that looks tougher than what first appears. BERTINA quickened up really nicely when winning on debut but that field may not have been very strong. VERTICAL showed promise before disappointing last time out. WATSONIA may need further but does have a winning chance. KLEVER KATHY has not been disgraced in three starts and has a chance. TASUNKE must be given respect.

Verdict

VERTICAL's recent efforts have been likeable in general and shge is probably the one to beat. Tasunke could provide the biggest competition, while Bertina is another worth looking at.

Verdict

EASY STREET is holding her form well enough but is better over 1000m. STAR BURST GALAXY has been at her very best this year and is clearly the one to beat once again. OUR DESTINY was full of running when winning her latest start and must be given the utmost respect. CLOUD ATLAS would prefer a bit further but could place. CLIFTON SUNSET is one of many that need to improve to win

Verdict

STAR BURST GALAXY recorded an excellent effort on her latest run and will be tough to beat. Our Destiny is the most realistic option for second, while La Revere edges it as the selection for third.

Verdict

GREEN FIELD was very disappointing last time out but could prefer the turf track and does have a winning chance in this type of field. COUNT NU was narrowly beaten in a race in December but has struggled in two runs since. STATE CAPTURE is course and distance suited but has a bad draw for jockey Muzi Yeni to overcome. RASTA BAY could improve for trainer Tara Laing and can earn.

Verdict

ABRAMO ought to improve and should make a bold show. State Capture looks to have the best prospects of the others, while Green Field is prominent among those with minor place claims.

Verdict

JUAN TWO THREE wins nearly half his starts and looked unlucky not to win both of his last two starts. He does look hard to oppose even over this shorter distance. VILLA DEL LARGO and stable companion CAPTAIN ALFREDO are battling to regain their best form but could place. OMEGA ONSLAUGHT has done well in his new yard and could earn some more money. PHELAN LUCKY has a chance.

Verdict

JUAN TWO THREE is compiling a very respectable record right now and should come home in front. Isphan can get the better of the remainder for third, while Captain Alfredo is prominent among those with minor place claims.

Verdict

SABBATICAL and KIMBERLEY STAR renew rivalry but this time both are trying a new distance. There should not be too much between them once again. KIMBERLEY STAR is better off draw wise. DESERT CHIEF has some ground to find on the earlier selections but is proven over this distance so could finish in the money. MULTI GOLD and BELONJE are improving but this is a tough race for them

Verdict

KIMBERLEY STAR holds the cards on the form book and is a straightforward pick. Sabbatical is not one to underestimate however, while Desert Chief has a place chance as well.

Verdict

QUEEN FOREVER was too far out of her ground last time out and did well to get as close as she did. This is a longer trip for her and she could recoup losses. WIDOW'S LAMP has at least won a 1800m race so may not have any doubts over this longer distance. Western Cape raiders ESTEEMAL and WOODSTOCK FAIRY are clearly not out of it and deserve respect. SEARCHING could surprise.

Verdict

QUEEN FOREVER should be thereabouts but can't afford to put a foot wrong. Widow's Lamp is also in with a shout, while Esteemal might well have a say as well.

Verdict

A tough race to end the card. KING DJANGO could prefer the Polytrack but must be considered. LEADMAN is better than his last run and could upset. ARABIAN DYNASTY makes his local debut and should run well. THE CAT has been consistent of late and is not out of it. Stable companions ICARUS FLIGHT and LOTUS ELAN are both capable of winning a race like this. TOBODI deserves respect.

Verdict

ARMSTRONG'S BOY has a clear form edge and is hard to look past. King Django is the most realistic second preference, while Rokatenda enters calculations for third place.
