Verdict

EASTBROOK made a sparkling debut at Scottsville over this trip. He is quick and from a good draw should have every chance. PODCAST made good progress albeit in a Barrier Trial and the Philanthropist colt can only improve. He does switch to turf. ROCKY COAST was not disgraced after a slow start in his debut. He has drawn widest here. CHARLIE-FOX can only improve.

Verdict

EASTBROOK is probably the safest recommendation but it promises to be touch and go. Anza-Borrego is the other to focus on, while Special Force can scrap it out for third.

Verdict

PETRA showed good potential in a Barrier Trial 'winning' it and the form of that Trial could be decent. She has to take the turn but has a good draw and could win her debut proper. ORATORINA looked the likely winner but allowed one to get by late. She could make it an Oratorio exacta. TOMBOLA could reverse positions with TO WOO from a better draw. WATCHMEGO can get into it.

Verdict

TO WOO was slightly disappointing when favourite last time out, but looks the one to be on once again. Tombola is most likely the main threat, while Petra is another to consider.

Verdict

SAND PATH is a tough ride. He should have won by now but has ducked and dived and hopefully he can put it together now that he knows the turf track here. BRAVO ZULU finished runner-up the last twice and is knocking hard. He will be having his 18th try though and has not drawn well. IF AND WHEN showed form last and could enjoy the same trip here. GOOD LORD PADMORE has scope.

Verdict

SAND PATH is quite clearly in front of these on form and will be hard to beat. Bravo Zulu is likely to pounce if the selection fails to deliver, while If And When is another that could go well.

Verdict

ROY'S STINGRAY made a fair debut last year but then took time off before showing up in a Barrier Trial a week ago. She may have some issues but has shown enough to make her a big runner here. IRISH MARSH was eye catching after a slow start in her first try over this longer trip. She can go one better and score. LILIBET, ADORNED BY BEAUTY and GYPSY QUEEN must have claims.

Verdict

ROY'S STINGRAY only just appeals most of these but has little leeway if anything goes wrong. Adorned By Beauty seems only to have second to aim at, while Irish Marsh is the third candidate for the three.

Verdict

Wide open handicap. SIR BERNADINI just needed it and could resume winning ways. The turf track may be what he needs. ARIANOS BAGOFGOLD has shown talent and on pedigree this should be his best distance. He must be a runner. MASTER OF MISCHIEF can upset switching to turf. FIELDMARSHAL FENIX is rounding to best form and could finally back a win here. MBALI must go in.

Verdict

FIELDMARSHAL FENIX earns the narrow vote but will need everything to fall right. Mbali makes most appeal among the remainder, while Bling Swing is not out of it where the places are concerned.

Verdict

As open as a handicap can get. MINALOUSHE VENTURE did win easily when tried with blinkers and could get away as he has drawn better here. GOLD CHALICE had things go wrong last time and was knocking at the door prior. He has also drawn well. VIKING RED has second try over the trip and the turf may just be what he wants. STRONG N BRAVE should be right there. Go wide here.

Verdict

ROY'S ROLL'S ROYCE's recent efforts have had a lot to like about them and has leading claims. Viking Red looks the best back-up if the selection underperforms, while Gold Chalice isn't entirely out of it either.

Verdict

SILVER RAISIN has the form needed to win a race like this. But she has a wide draw on her turf debut at this venue. Still she can get it right. LADY JAY could be her biggest danger as she improved in her second try and has scope for further improvement. ROY'S NOVICE is knocking at the door but has drawn wider than SILVER RAISIN. PALMIETO and GOLDEN MINARET must have claims.

Verdict

SILVER RAISIN looks marginally the pick of this bunch but hasn't much room for error. Roy's Novice is another that comes into the equation, while Palmieto heads up those chasing third place.

Verdict

INCOMODATION did a lot better in her poly race than in previous tries. Her turf form is good and she can open her account against these. ROMAN COURTESAN has been travelling well until the last bit and is getting the hang of things. She can score if going the longer trip at this venue. PALACE MYSTERY was a strong second last time and if overcoming her draw could be a big danger.

Verdict

ROMAN COURTESAN has a small margin for error but this is an open race. Palace Mystery looks to have the best prospects of the others, while Incomodation is perhaps the most interesting other runner in the line up.
