Verdict

Winter's Nest has been touched off by the narrowest of margins on each of her last two outings, faring better than a number of these, but she may have to settle for another supporting role, this time behind WARRENS LIL MARGIE. Quinn Howey's mare will appreciate the return to a route and has also kept slightly stronger company.

Verdict

NOVEMBER TALE hasn't had the best of years, with an early-season campaign and then two runs at Del Mar in August bringing little joy, but the daughter of Casamento willl appreciate this less taxing assignment. Wish You Were Mine is holding her form well, and It's Alexus is another to consider.

Verdict

TIZ TITUS and Nowhere Man are excellent servants for their connections but while the latter accounted for Manila Mischief at Fresno, Jonathan Wong's eight-year-old might get an uncontested lead and can take advantage. Black Tie Event isn't out of it if putting his best foot forward.

Verdict

Strip It Down has held her own in stakes company at Emerald Downs but lacks the potential of STORMIN BUNNY, who has won two of her three starts so far and can continue on her upward curve. Berryessa was just ahead of Unusually Stylish when third last time and is the pick of the remainder.

MONSAJEM PERVADE went really close to supplementing his Fresno triumph over this course and distance, and is worth sticking with while at the top of his game. The Common Man has been knocking on the door, while Aigle was found wanting in a stakes contest but has time on his side.

Verdict

BEHOLD THE GOLD went close to making the perfect beginning to her career when runner-up at Fresno and with the outing behind her, is likely to see her race out better. Tibby Gee is another to arrive on the back of a debut second, with Heavenly Holiday and Sinawava also considered after taking minor honours last time.
