Verdict

Cue The Q found the extended mile stretching his stamina when weakening into fourth last time so the drop in trip could suit. Second Bold hinted at ability on debut and any normal amount of improvement would bring him into the reckoning but EL ALTENO has filled the places on his last five outings and looks to have been found the ideal opening to shed the maiden tag.

Black Tie Event could prove difficult to catch if adopting his usual positive tactics but ROARING RULE excels over this track and trip and got the better of that rival when scoring here on his penultimate start. Sheila's Footsteps has proved consistency personified in recent months, finishing no worse than second on his last five starts, and rates a threat to all.

Daddy Duke highlighted his resolution to record a determined success over track and trip last month and is considered along with Redneck Crazy.

Verdict

Fervent Femme has finished runner-up on her last two starts and deserves to get her head in front but she may find one too strong once again in the shape of BEAUTIFUL BECCA. The selection faced a difficult task in a Grade 3 event last time and looks better judged on her penultimate success over this trip at Santa Anita. Crimson And Gold looks best of the rest.

TRIBAL HERO is open to further progress after only three starts and there was lots to like about his latest four-length success over track and trip last month. He faces a couple of class droppers here in the shape of Former Graduate and Singaprayer but can find enough improvement to complete a double.

Jen's Journey drops significantly in grade and may prove the biggest danger ahead of impressive last time out winner Never Double Dip.

Que Chistoso has his sights lowered and ought to be thereabouts while Barton Lodge has won three of his last four and is capable of bouncing back from a lacklustre effort last time. However, LORD OF CHAOS boasts considerable back class and it will be disappointing if he failed to make his presence felt after he finished a fair fifth in a competitive event at Del Mar last month.

Verdict

LAST ONE STANDING drops significantly in grade and boasts enough back class to suggest he could prove difficult to beat at this level. He has finished far from disgraced when fifth on his last two outings and is handed a confident vote. Royal Alexei and Tribal Again are both consistent types in this grade and look the pair to concentrate on for minor honours.
