Verdict

GIMME CRYSTALS was heavily backed when she won her debut. The runner-up that day March Music has done very well since. This Gimmethegreenlight filly will prefer the extra 200m of this race and she could get punters off to a cracking starts. KLEVER KATHY tends to lack a little bit extra late but she should contest the finish once again. SEATTLE MERMAID won easily last time out.

Verdict

KLEVER KATHY has run several good races recently and should prove hard to catch. Gimme Crystals makes most appeal among the others, while Seattle Mermaid merits respect also.

Verdict

BORN A BULLY was not let to stride last time out and that seemed to prove costly. This distance is not really a problem and he should fight out the finish. CATHTHEMASTER was heavily supported on debut and did not run badly at all. He is likely to be smarter this time and could go close. EL CHEEPO makes his local debut and could make vast improvement. SPEEDY FLYER can place.

Verdict

BORN A BULLY is the best in this line up on known form and is hard to look past. Speed Flyer is hard to ignore in the search for second, while Adalfieri is the third candidate for the three.

Verdict

The juvenile ROYAL FORT showed nice improvement form his debut to be beaten by just over a length last time. The step up to 1400m could be just what the Royal Air Force gelding is looking for and he can beat this weak field. KISSMEBACKFOOT is holding form and could be concerned with the finish once again. GENEROUS GUY is making his debut but keep an eye on the betting.

Verdict

ROYAL FORT has marginally the best all-round profile but will need to be firing on all cylinders. Kissmebackfoot is feared most, while Generous Guy can't be ruled out of things either first time up.

Verdict

A competitive looking race. BIKINI MODEL is holding form and does have a winning chance in this line-up. HONEY'S LEGACY showed up nicely on her local debut. She did not really repeat it last time though. GREAT SOUND has a place chance. WAHI and BUZZARDS BAY need to improve to win. CHINCHILLA is improving and could do better this longer distance. SEATTLE EMPRESS can place.

Verdict

BIKINI MODEL is well in front of these from a form perspective and is the one to overcome. Great Sound is marginally preferred for second, while Honey's Legacy can scrap it out for third.

Verdict

A very weak field and any result is possible. STATE CAPTURE is doing well but takes a big jump up in distance. PONDICHERRI tends to lack a finish and needs to do more to win. CHAONONE'S THEORY showed improvement last time out. MAHIR and CONQUERING KING are battling to shed their maiden tag but are not out of it. BLACK PIMPERNEL will prefer this distance. THE GOWN can go close.

Verdict

THE GOWN looks to have been found a very good opportunity. if not hampered by this different trip. Ingabangabonga is most likely the main danger, while State Capture is a solid place option.

Verdict

THE ELMO EFFECT is clearly a lot better than his last run would suggest and can bounce back from that performance. DESERT WISDOM, PLANO and FRIKKIE fought out the finish last time and there is every reason to suggest that it could be the same in this race. It is a bit further this time though. SHADY WORLD has won over this course and distance. ZANADU is only a Maiden winner.

Verdict

PLANO looks to be the safest option but it's an open race. Desert Wisdom is the pick of the the others, while Frikkie also demands scrutiny.

Verdict

Another open looking race. BREAKFAST CLUB did not produce his best on the turf last time but is clearly not out of it. SACRED ORATION seems at his very best around this distance and should run well. STORY OF MY LIFE is battling to regain winning form but has pole position and can go close. SOVIET COSMONAUT and IT IS WRITTEN are both capable of earning stake cheques.

Verdict

PACIFIC SPIRIT appears to have just enough in hand to take this but has little margin for error. It Is Written gets the vote for second, while Paper Town demands respect as well.

Verdict

RED GRANITE is coming off a decent win and must be respected. VEEIPEE CLUB proved just in need of her last run and can do better this time. COASTAL SPELL is clearly capable of better than her last run. POLLY WOLLY DOODLE is battling to win but might place. REINE TONNERE did well to win her latest startand can be considered. CLOUD ATLAS and CHINKAPIN are two others to consider.

Verdict

WHAT A PLAYER just about looks the one to be with but any trouble could put paid to her chance. Anglet looks the best back-up if the selection underperforms, while Maverick Girl may be the one for third.
