Verdict

SELFIE was not disgraced when third last time out. The Var filly tries the sand for the first time but could prove hard to beat in this line-up. KARIBA SUNSET returns from a short break but could finish in the money. ROMANI tends to lack a strong finish but is not out of it. SAVAGE GARDEN disappointed last week but should do a lot better this time. KATJIEVANDIEBAAN can place.

Verdict

SELFIE is quite easily the best of these on form and will be hard to beat. Arctic Siren is fancied as the best bet for second, while Kariba Sunrise comes into calculations for the minor honours.

Verdict

POSTER GIRL may have just needed her local debut and could do better this time. SWEET PLEASURES is doing very nicely in her new yard and is clearly the one to beat in this line-up. NITROGEN is doing well recently and looks course and distance suited. She should run well once again. SATIN ROCK shows pace so could like this distance. AMERICAN TRILOGY likes this track and trip.

Verdict

SHARAK ALHUBB should be thereabouts but has next to no margin for error. Nitrogen is high up there among the others, while Poster Girl is another to consider.

Verdict

IN FULL REGALIA returns from a lengthy break and is likely to need this run. ROQUEBRUNE has ability but does not always show it. He must be respected. FATAL ATTRACTION returns from a break but is not out of it. PONT DU GARD is course and distance suited. TURBO won very easily last time and deserves respect. ROCK A BYE BABY loves this track and trip and should go close again.

Verdict

ROCK A BYE BABY looks marginally the best of this bunch but will need to be firing on all cylinders. Modjadji seems the principal challenger, while Turbo also seems unlikely to be far away.

Verdict

DRAGONAIR makes her local debut but clearly has a winning chance in this line-up. PHAROAH'S CHARM is improving and could finish in the money. ANTE MERIDIEM is better than her last run would suggest and is not out of it. IRA has some improved recent form and must have a winning chance in this line-up. HALLUCINATION ran on well from far back last week and could do a lot better.

Verdict

DRAGONAIR is probably the best recommendation but hasn't much room for error. Kanishiwa looks the best bet for the runner-up spot, while Pharoah's Charm also needs a second look.

Verdict

WINE DARK SEA may have needed some time to get used to the sand track and could now start improving. DELTA KNIGHT has improved recent form and should contest the finish of this race. LIBRA LOVER could improve on a modest course debut. ARGOSTOLI had a horror draw last time out so is likely to do better this time. UNPLAYABLE is battling to win but can earn. CITY ROCK can win.

Verdict

CITY ROCK has scope to improve and could be difficult to catch. Delta Knight is difficult to ignore where second place is concerned, while Great Success also requires respect.

Verdict

SAINT MARCO has run three decent races at this track and is likely to contest the finish once again. MANOUCHE could pop up in the places. PORTMAN SQUARE is unreliable but might place. NETHERBY HALL is well drawn and could run well once again. RIVER RAFTER is consistent but could need this comeback run. SULTRY has a wide draw to overcome but is not out of it. ZANJABEEL can win.

Verdict

SULTRY looks marginally the pick in this field but can't afford for much to go wrong. Saint Marco is the rational second choice, while River Rafter should go well too.

Verdict

GONE BUT NOT FORGOTTEN makes his local debut but is capable of winning in a race like this. CHIEF SIOUX was not disgraced last week and could go one better this time. EDGE OF GLORY was not disgraced on his local debut and does have a winning chance. CHILI LIME is improving slowly and could earn some money. JOE'S JOY is well drawn and is likely to do better than last time out.

Verdict

CHIEF SIOUX is a good amount clear on all known form and is quite a confident pick. Joe's Joy seems the most likely to take advantage if the selection fails to deliver, while Edge Of Glory can win the battle for minor honours.

Verdict

RAZZLE MY TAZZLE and CARIBBEAN BAY are capable of winning in a field like this. LEDIMASPRINCESS could now start improving and must be considered. JO MAMBO is badly drawn but could place. IMPERIAL CHESTNUT makes her debut for trainer Tienie Prinsloo. KUTLWANOSLOVE was only run out of it last last time and does look the one to beat. DOCTOR'S ANSWER and WINGS N THINGS might earn.

Verdict

KUTLWANOSLOVE looks to have more or less the best credentials but can't afford for much to go wrong. Nico's Chick makes most appeal of the rest, while Imperial Chestnut is not out of it where the places are concerned.
