Verdict

PAINT THE WAY has built an impressive combination with jockey Warren Kennedy and should be in fine fettle after that last win - respect. MINDS EYE tries the trip for the first time however has shown glimpses of talent and should make for stiff competition. PEGGY'S DREAM returns from a short break, she's ultra consistent and should be in the frame past the post.

Verdict

FASHION TALK failed to justify favouritism last time, but will remain of interest off this sort of mark. Fashion Secret is feared most, with Minds Eye a tentative selection for third. .

Verdict

Tricky race - SWEET CHESTNUT makes the trip to KZN and should be given every chance. ALL HONESTY has been improving with every race run, the bump up in distance should prove salubrious for her. HANDS AT WORK is another that's been showing marked improvement, she's shown a liking for the trip and should be included. FRENCH TOAST and CLASSIC CHIC could earn minor money.

Verdict

FASHION TALK failed to justify favouritism last time, but will remain of interest off this sort of mark. Fashion Secret is feared most, with Minds Eye a tentative selection for third. .

Verdict

Competitive race - MOSTARDA caught the eye in her last outing when 0.25 lengths shy of the first place position. She could go very close here. ROY'S PONY is never far off the pack past the post, expect improvement. FLAMINGO VLEI is long overdue for that maiden victory and has proven rather expensive to follow. TROPICAL WONDER could run into the minor money positions.

Verdict

SWEET CHESTNUT is hard to oppose on the form she has shown and is taken to belatedly get off the mark. All Honesty is not one to underestimate all the same, whilst Hands At Work is another to consider.

Verdict

SILVER INSPIRATION has proven unreliable however runs well on the Polytrackand could prove the one they have to beat here. ICHKERIA wasn't far off last time out and is well at the weights and drawn well. TALES OF MAMBO's Polytrack record is good and it wouldn't be a surprise if she won here. GAVEA GIRLand HALLOWED SPRING could be valuable for the backend of all bets.

Verdict

SAZERAC is proving steadily progressive and won't have to improve much further to play a leading role. Mostarda is likely to pounce if the selection fails to deliver, although Tropical Wonder should be thereabouts, too.

Verdict

GINGERBREAD MAN could prove the best bet on the card. He is very honest and impressed in that last run when deadheating for first. He's well at the weights and enjoys this trip. HYAKU has been unreliable however when he has his head in the game makes for stiff competition. He'll be in fine fettle after that last win. Include CAPEL TOP, THIRTYTWO SQUANDRON, and NIGHT SHADOW.

Verdict

TALES OF MAMBO disappointed over further last time but is worth another chance back down in trip off a further-reduced mark. Gavea Girl can also take a hand, albeit Roy's Dollar also commands a closer look.

Verdict

DALE HOUSE's last run is best ignored - it came after a four month break and he made progress from last. He will be fitter and could be the one they all have to beat. ROCKEFELLER has been costly to follow however scored an impressive vicory last time out, chance for a double? PATROCLUS has failed to impress over his last three runs, he however isn't in it without a chance.

Verdict

CAT IN COMMAND looks to have narrowly the best credentials but can't afford for much to go wrong. Royal Armour is the percentage call to finish second, albeit Gingerbread Man is another that merits respect.

Verdict

PATH OF GLORY and Warren Kennedy have a 100% strike rate, they meet stronger however could prove the right pick. CATHERINEOFARAGON is going for a third straight victory, is well weighted and could be the biggest danger. OSTENTATION is very talented but returns from a lengthy 256 day lay off, chance if fit. Include RESPECT AT BAY and DIAMOND IN THE SKY for backend of quartets.

Verdict

PATROCLUS is probably the safest recommendation but it promises to be touch and go. Willoughton will probably give the selection most to think about, although Winter's Coming is perhaps the most interesting other runner in the line-up.

Verdict

MR MCSTEAMY won going away last time out and could be looking to add on to this improvement in this closer. CAPTAIN OF ROCK returns from a break however if fit should make for stiff competition. STRUMMER disappointed in his last run - he returns from a lengthy lay off and if game ready should be in it with a shout. Also consider ROY ROYALE and SHARP SEATTLE.

Verdict

FLY PEG FLY is running well enough to merit close consideration in an open handicap. Catherineofaragon can get the better of the remainder for second, although Diamond In The Sky deserves some consideration too.
