Verdict

Trainer Gavin Smith has a strong hand in this opening event with both EX NIHILO and SUPER SOCKS likely to go close to winning. Stable jockey Muzi Yeni will be aboard SUPER SOCKS but I for one will not be surprised to see EX NIHILO be the better one on the day. The Crusade filly PRESS RELEASE was a bit disappointing when trying the grass last time out but is also not out of it.

Verdict

SUPER SOCKS is in a good vein of form and seems the one they have to beat. Press Release shouldn't be too far away, while Ex Nihilo commands respect as well.

Verdict

The Gimmethegreenlight filly GREEN SEA was well beaten in a Feature last time out but only found a good filly Elle Este Voire too good in her penultimate start. If returning to that form GREEN SEA should beat these modest rivals. The joker in the pack though is the newcomer MY MIRACLE. This Elusive Fort filly is making her debut so the betting could be the best guide with her.

Verdict

GREEN SEA has a great chance to open her account. My Miracle can also play a leading part on debut, while Angioletta is another with place prospects too.

Verdict

STRAW RUM was a bit disappointing last time out but fresh from a break she should go close to winning despite a wide draw. MONEY BUYS LOVE may have just needed her local debut and does have a winning chance. ZALIKA continues to hold her form and should fight out the finish once again. PETIPA was only fourth on debut but the winner was a wide margin winner that day.

Verdict

ZALIKA was a beaten favourite last time out, but still appeals as the most obvious winner. Straw Rum shouldn't be underestimated, while Wahi is another to come into the reckoning.

Verdict

A very open looking contest and a number of runners will need to be included in most exotics. POLLY WOLLY DOODLE is battling to regain winning form but is out of it. AVIATRIX was narrowly beaten last time out and must be included in most bets. GITANO TONIGHT is not reliable but is also not out of it. BLUE RHONE SKY is back on the turf and can win. BRING ME MORE has a chance.

Verdict

AVIATRIX was a fine second here last time and has solid claims. Bikini Model is most likely the sternest opposition, while Three Times A Lady also merits respect.

Verdict

SOVIET COSMONAUT has been in very good form this year but does give weight away to all his rivals. ARABIAN DYNASTY has been a revelation since joining trainer Alan Greeff and he could make it four in a row provided he sits closer to the pace this time. Stable companions PAPER TOWN and DRAGON FLAME should be in the final shake-up. TOMBODI is improving and should run well again.

Verdict

PAPER TOWN is running creditably and is the one they all have to beat. Free Agent is the pick of the remainder, while Tombodi is another with place claims.

Verdict

Trainer Alan Greeff sends out two decent fillies in BEATABOUTTHEBUSH and QUEEN FOREVER. Stable jockey Greg Cheyne is aboard BEATABOUTTHEBUSH. QUEEN FOREVER, however will probably prefer this shorter distance and must be respected. SECRET STAR should improve on her local debut. WIDOW'S LAMP is the class act and gets the vote to score. RED GRANITE and REINE TONNERE can earn.

Verdict

BEATABOUTTHEBUSH has very good claims and is up to winning this with something in hand. Patchit Up Baby looks to have most to offer of the rest ahead of Secret Star.

Verdict

PILLAR OF HERCULES probably proved just in need of his local debut and could prefer this shorter distance so expect him to go close to winning this race. COPPER TRAIL prefers further but is returning from a break and could place. ZEVENASTIC is in good form and has a chance. LE GRAND ROUGE is a bit unsound but is clearly not out of it. FLYING ROCK and PICK AGAIN can place.

Verdict

ZEVENASTIC continues to run creditably and can notch up a fourth C&D success. Copper Trail could be the chief threat, while Le Grand Rouge shouldn't be far away either.

Verdict

HOT N HAZY returns from a break but does have some ability and can earn some money. Stable companions MEGA SCENE and STOPTHINKINGOFME should both be in the shake-up. LINDLEY'S LANE would probably prefer a longer distance but could race fresh from a break. ASTISIA won well on debut and was not disgraced last time out. ELLE EST NOIRE impressed on debut and could follow up.

Verdict

AL'S BELLS can bounce back to form with success. Stopthinkingofme can come out best of the rest, while If Only is prominent among those with minor place claims.
