Verdict

GRIZZARD makes his local debut but on his best form he can go close to winning this race. It may be notable that Muzi Yeni is aboard him. Stable companion VALUE AT RISK ran a much improved race when third last time out and could contest the finish once again. MIESQUE'S SPEED has been battling a long time and could play a minor role. WINDY FLIGHT shows pace so should go close.

Verdict

GRIZZARD formwise is a cut above these and shouldn't really be troubled. Casey Boy may be the best bet to follow the selection home on his debut, while Value At Risk looks third best.

Verdict

Some very modest runners go to the post for this. WINE DARK SEA tends to run when the race is over but should fight out the finish in this small field. CHESTNUT TROOP clearly has the best form of the runners but the question remains will he ever actually win a race? GREAT SUCCESS was never in the race last time and could be capable of better. SWAMP BROTHER could be the joker!!

Verdict

CHESTNUT TROOP looks marginally the pick of these but it's an open race. Wine Dark Sea could emerge as the main threat, while Great Success is another who could figure.

Verdict

COME AS YOU ARE could show vast improvement on her local debut. STOLEN SUMMER ran an improved race on her local debut and could do even better this time. ANTE MERIDIUM is a bit unreliable but could contest the finish once again. KEHILA is consistent and looks the one they all have to beat in this modest field. SAMISH BAY could improve on the sand surface and must be watched.

Verdict

KEHILA has sound claims on form and sets the bar high. Ante Meridiem may be the best bet to follow the selection home, while Stolen Summer can't be ruled out.

Verdict

A number of runners with good recent form picth up for this race. RED SPECIAL is very good when in the mood but gives weight away to all his rivals. TRADING PROFIT makes his local debut and deserves respect. DODGY ITIE is likely to need this come back run. SEATTLE SUNSET and BONGO DANCE are course and distance suited and have winning chances. Respect AHEAD OF TRAFFIC in this.

Verdict

JO MAMBO has been hard to fault in recent outings and just about gets the nod in this field. Red Special can get the better of the others for second, while Bongo Dance is perhaps the most interesting other runner in the field.

Verdict

SULTRY is holding her form well enough but is going to have the give the colts and geldings weight. SEA BEAN is unreliable but could pop up in the places. PORTMAN SQUARE is always capable of earning some money when in the mood. TALK WRENCH has some fair recent form and could finish in the money once again. Both BROOKIE and MISTER GEGGE are in very good form and can go close.

Verdict

MISTER GEGGE failed to justify market support last time out, but is worth giving another chance. Talk Wrench looks the likeliest to chase the selection home, while Monsieur Blanco looks best of the rest.

Verdict

AMERICAN TRILOGY returns from a rest and is capable of an upset. FOREVER JOY returns from a break and could improve on the sand track. LEAPS AND BOUNDS is in good form but may prefer a longer distance than this. AMORETTA and CLASS PROTECTOR are course and distance suited and must have winning chances. VAR AGTIG could make a winning local debut. QUEEN AT WAR could surprise them.

Verdict

VAR AGTIG has run several good races recently and seems likely to take the beating. Silver Swift appeals most of the remainder, while Leaps And Bounds is perhaps the most interesting other runner in the line up.

Verdict

TURBO is unreliable but is not out of it. DOPLHIN is likely to improve on his local debut and could be worth looking at. NEPHRITE is carded to make the trip from the Vaal so must be given the utmost respect. Stable companions IMPERIAL GOLD and PHILS POWER are not completely out of it but TIMCAT is improving with each run and should go very close. The draw of 11 is an obstacle.

Verdict

TIMKAT's recent form just about edges this but it's an open race. Phil's Power has the best claims of the rest, while Emperors Tractor is also an interesting runner.

Verdict

An interesting Juvenile feature where draws could play a large part in the result as this is a tricky distance for badly drawn runners. CARABINIERI is in good form and is looking for a hat-trick os wins. SPACE AGENT is improving and is also looking for a hat-trick. ALL ABOUT THE BASS was impressive on his debut but is not well drawn. TUNE THE SCOPE and ANDALUSIAN have chances.

Verdict

TUNE THE SCOPE is in a good run of form and has leading claims. Andalusian also comes into the equation, while All About The Bass also requires consideration.

Verdict

BRIGHT FLAME did well enough when winning on his local debut. He can go close once again. KLONDIKE RIVER needed his come back run but is likely to show vast improvement. YESAN STAR could place. WINTER TRADE could run well on his local debut. SECRET DELIGHT could place. CUP KING is unreliable but is not out of it. WHAT A POET ran on very well last week and could win this.

Verdict

WHAT A POET has put together a solid series of recent efforts and looks the one they all have to beat. Sky Vegas could be the chief opposition, while Secret Delight is perhaps the most interesting of those left.
