Verdict

MOLLY PITCHER's consistency could be rewarded today, granted she overcomes her wide No 16 draw. COUNTESS VAROVSKI will too have a wide draw, her only run at the course was a narrow 0.30 lengths defeat by Burning Ambition. THE BIG CHILL sparked improvement last time and can go close. VERACITY CAT and JANIS JETLIN both show promise.

Verdict

VERACITY CAT's recent efforts have been likeable in general and is just about the pick in this company. Molly Pitcher seems best of the remnants, while Autumn Annie should also be considered first time up.

Verdict

TWO GUNSY is never far off them and with a modest weight and a decent draw could score here. DOUBLE BLIND has a wide draw but lacks nothing in the class department, big chance. MANOUSHE has been rather disappointing in his last two outing, but can still improvement. TOO COOL's last run is best ignored, can earn. TALK WRENCH shouldn't be too far back.

Verdict

TALK WRENCH is best of these on form and looks to have a straightforward task. Double Bind may be the one for second, while Manouche should go well too.

Verdict

SAZERAC was backed last time and could have found the 1000m trip too short. The 1600m trip should suit plus, she is the best handicapped runner - go close. SILVER SWIFT has finished second second in her last two starts, third time lucky? PRETTY WENDY, I AM TITANIUM and COUNTESS CHESTNUT can all pop up come the finish line.

Verdict

I AM TITANIUM looks to have just about the best credentials but will need to be firing on all cylinders. Sazerac is probably the main danger, while Silver Swift might be hard to keep out of the minor money.

Verdict

PAMPIERSTAD returns from a lengthy rest and has been gelded - it is not a novelty for horses to win in Kimberley even with such a disadvantage. RIVER RAFTER found one too good last time, expect improvement. TOKIMONSTA has finished third in his last two starts, can go closer. U REIGN and OBLADI OBLADA can find money too.

Verdict

PAMPIERSTAD's recent form just about edges this but this is an open race. U Reign looks to have most to offer of the rest, while Tokimonsta could well have a say as well.

Verdict

SKY FULL OF STARS, BOLD MAN and NATSUBA should all relish the drop in trip following performances over 2200m last time out. SKY FULL OF STARS makes the most and he will have the benefit of a cosy No 5 draw. PORTMAN SQUARE and SEATTLE WONDER both have valid shouts for minor money.

Verdict

EXCLUSIVE KNIGHT has been operating at a solid level lately and should make a bold show. Seattle Wonder is most likely the toughest threat, while Netherby Hall is another to take into acount.

Verdict

Good contest - AUGUST DUKE is coming off a narrow defeat at Turfforntein, plus it is encouraging that he is 1 for 1 over the course and distance. JET SAILOR is yet run out of the money at the course, he could pose the main threat. ROARING TIGER, DANCINGWITHJACKSON and THE LION GUARD all have valid claims.

Verdict

ORATIO can't be opposed on what he has shown and is a major player. Anyday Anytime is also fancied to take a hand, while August Duke might be hard to keep out of the minor money.

Verdict

KISS ME HARDY does well at the course and is the best handicapped runner, despite the heavy 61kg, he has much in his favour. IN FULL REGALIA has finished 2nd in his last two starts, third time lucky? EASY TO PLEASE, AHEAD OF TRAFIC, ELUSIVE SINGER and SPEEDY LIGHTNING all warrant inclusion.

Verdict

EASY TO PLEASE is just about best of these all things considered but others can't be discounted in an open contest. In Full Regalia looks the most dangerous rival, while Speed Lightning isn't entirely out of it either.

Verdict

Competitive - SPASHY was an eight length victor last time out and looks very hard to tip against here. OVER ACHIEVER is ultra-consistent, expect another honest run. ENTICER, fly rebecca fly, FRENCH FOLIE, ROCK BURNER and GREEN REPORT could fight out the minors.

Verdict

FRENCH FOLIE is in good heart right now and just about gets the nod in this field. Top Salute can also play a major role, while Fly Rebecca Fly is the other candidate for the three.
